JH. POLITICAL POINTER
If you Indorso tho freotrado and fret
silver Chicago platform ns the Lacka
wunna Democracy does, "fully and
without reserve," then work and voto
for Schadt, Horn, ct. nl. If you be
lieve In McKlnley, protection and pros
perity, turn these agents ot Brjan
A Duty to Party and to Nation.
One of tho devices employed by the
artful dodgers of the Sehndt-Horn
combination Is to pass the -word nmons
Republicans with a prejudice nglnst
this, that or the other local Republi
can leader that the Republican ticket
this fall Is that particular leader's
ticket and not necessarily tho party
ticket. The Intent, of course. Is to play
upon tho voter's prejudice until he can
be secured to vote for Schadt, Horn,
Bryanlsm and tho whole Democratic
programme, A vote thus secured Is
practically as good as two votes, since
It weakens the Republican ticket by
one vote and by one vote also strength
ens the enemy.
The readers of The Tribune do not
need to be told the speclousness and
the falsity of such a claim; but as mis
sionaries of good government they
should, when this subject arises In
their neighborhood, straighten It out.
The Republican who cuts a name In
the regular Republican column on the
official ballot this year cuts a wound
In the body of Republicanism. He
Elves Just that much encouragement
to the enemy. Sometimes there seem
to be Imperative reasons why this
should be done; but we challenge any
Republican In Lackawanna county to
point to a name on this year's Repub
lican ticket, state or local, and present
tenable reasons why that name should
be scratched". The candidates from top
to bottom are good, true Republicans,
efilclent citizens and representative
men. Their collective average Is as
high In point of party deserving and
personal qualification ns has been that
of any ticket ever offered before tho
voters of this or any other county,
without exception. If among the ob
jects of elctlons Is to put In offlce good
men, here Is a ticket which fulfils that
purpose most admirably.
But there is yet another thing to be
said In favor of this ticket, and It is
to our mind of the utmost Importance
at this particular Juncture In public
affairs. The ticket Is one link in a
chain of Republican organization ex
tending from tho smallest division In
our scheme of government, the election
precinct, to the very highest, which Is
the federal government of the United
States. No chain is stronger than its
weakest links. If the small links In
the Republican party's organization
were to give way through party
apathy or the personal prejudices of
Individual Republicans, then there
would soon come a time when the larg
est links would cease to hold, and It
would be only a brief time until the
whole structure would be robbed of Its
cohesive Influences. The weakening ot
Republicanism at any time would bo
a nntlonal misfortune, but at this es
pecial time, when In eveiy county, vil
lage and hamlet throughout tho land
the forces which last year rallied under
the lend of Bryan, Altgeld and Till
man; the foices now led In New York
by Van Wyck and George and In Lack
awanna by Schadt and Horn, are pre
paring for further assault upon the
stability of business values and the
credit of the government, a setback
to the Republican party would bo a
Therefore, let no true Republican
According to the Times the campaign
tlls year is "a question of morals."
"We must sav that the moralists at
Schadt's head'iuartets are proceeding
to Inculcate virtue In a decidedly prac
As will be observed In tho editorial
elsewhere reproduced from the Chicago
Tlmes-Horald, Mr. Kohlsaat, the edi
tor of that Journal, whose nearness to
Major McKlnley gives to his word ea
pedal significance, is authority fpr the
stntement that the resignation of John
Sherman as secretary of state Is al
ready In the president's possession, for
acceptance at hitch time as the presi
dent shall dsem opportune. Tho state
portfolio was accepted by Senator
Sherman with reluctance, but In obedi
ence to the wish of tho president-elect,
who years before had. assured the Nes
tor of Ohio politics that If over tho
younger man became president the el
der should bo his premier.
Advancing years, ana exhausted hon
ors achieved during tho longest and
most distinguished ireer of public
service among contemporary American
statesmen press upon Mr. Sherman the
wish to pass tho remainder of his days
In tho tranquility and rest of pilvoto
life; and we may readily Uellcvo that
while he could no In ul respect con
sent tojieed the (nuyc-rgnt newspaper
clamor which hah sought to fixpedlto
his retirement nnd to provoke estrange
ments between him nnd his chief, he
would welcome with eagerness the fit
occasion for a surrender of ofllclal
cares. No act which he could here
after perform ns secretary ot fetnte
could add to the stature which he will
assume In history or augment tho es
teem In which he Is held by all who
possess the power to weigh public ser
vice fairly and with discrimination.
M'o recall at this time a conversation
onco had with Mr. Sherman, In which
tl.'e latter, haggaid nnd worn by the
frictions of a. fierce political contest
then landing, a contest which it was
feared would result In his own defeat
for a position of great honor, took occa
sion with much solemnity of manner to
warn young men against seeking a po
litical career. He emphasized tho hol
lowness ot station nchlewd through
politics and afllrmed tho superiority of
a reputation built up In an unofficial
sphere. That In the great majoilty ot
Instances obedience to this eminent
counsel would result Jn increased per
sonal contentment Is not to be doubted.
Yet wo cannot exclude the thought
that had John Sherman lived out his
own precept, this nation and pel haps
the whole ot civilization would liavs
been Inestimably the poorer.
Hypocrisy, thy abode Is In the sanc
tum ot the Bryanitc Times.
Onco every year, nliout this distance
from election, tho local D-mocrattc or
gan begins Its "stop thief" cry about
the use by the Republicans of a huge
corruption fund collected for distribu
tion In tho closing hours of the canvass.
The article varies but little from year
to year. Usually the editor of the
Times merely turns to his files of the
previous year and scissors it out. A
daub of paste, the nlteratlon of a word
here nnd theie, and the editorial Is onco
more ready for th'J composing room.
U would be still cheaper to have It
stereotyped nnd put with the other
standing matter for resurrection when
requited, but this stroke of economy
has evidently not yet occurred to him.
We notice that this annual publica
tion has already been made by tho
Times. It appeared for the first time
In this campaign In Its Issue ot Thurs
day. 'With variations it will doubtless
be icpcated nt Intervals of a day or two
until election day. In the meantime
the Schadt disbursement bureau on
Spruce street will aret In Its fine work
In accordance with' the plan of cam
paign already laid down 1y It. There
is a vast deal of humor In the appfar
anco of our gallant friend, Colonel
Fltzsimmons, as the spokesman In the
evenings of purity in politics nnd In
the daytime as 3ne of the su
perintendents of the financial op
erations now In progress nt the
Democratic headquarters; but humor
seems to be a feature of our opponents'
compalgn. They bubble over with it:
especially when trying to laugh aside
the Chicago platform.
The advantage to our Democratic
friends in putting out this annual
chestnut about a fortnlslit prior to
election consists of the fact that no
matter how the election goes they can
afterward refer to It and say: "We
told you so." If the Republicans win
they can look horrified and attribute
It to boodle. If oa the contrary they
themselves pull out a victory, they can
swell with virtuous Joy and exclaim
that ths "honett manhood of Lacka
wanna has refused to respond to tho
seductive Influences of the enemy and
demonstrated anew Us Hteiilng incor
uiptlblllty." Meanwhile lot no Republican b de
ceived. The history of Democratic pol
itics In Lackawanna Is an ample an
swer to the present pose of that cuilous
organization as an Instiument of re
generation. Neither tho sheriff, the treasunr. the
district attorney, nor any other of the
county officers will have a voice, a vote,
or any Influence whatever upon shaping
tho policy of the go eminent on the tar
iff, tho currency or nny other national
Issue. But tho election of the Democratic
ticket will servo as a rebuko to the
manipulators of primal les, tho debauch
ers of conventions and tho would-bo
bribers of voters. Scranton Times.
Tho sheilff has this lnlluence on na
tional oolltlcs: his office Is a natural
rallying point In campaign wok; nnd
his power legitimately to aid or to hin
der his party Is considerable. Tho
Times knows this, because If Schadt is
elected It expects to share liberally in
his 'influence." As to the last sentence
In the quotation, when the Times editor
wtote it, how he must have laughed!
Speak Out, Mr. Schadt.
If tho report now current Is true
that the leaders of the Lackavanna
Demociacy, heretofore so emphatic In.
their advocacy of Rryanlsm and the
Chicago platfoim, have received orders
from Mr. Schadt, the actual manager
of the present Democratic campaign
In this county, to keep still on that
line; to say nothing to offend the
sound money Democrats; In other
words to Ignore the very platform and
policy which the convention that nomi
nated Mr. Schadt endorsed "FULLY
AND WITHOUT RESERVE," It be
comes a legitimate question to ask
"where does Mr. Schadt stand? Is he
for Brynnlsm and free silver or Is he
Tho next sheriff of Lackawanna
county will be in office during the con
gressional campaign of 1S9S and dur
ing the presidential contest ot lOOO.
In each of these years Bryanlsm
threatens to be an isue before the
people. Tho free silver cause received
a set back last fall but It was not
killed. Everywhere throughout the
country the lines are forming for an
other struggle. Tho attack upon pro
tection and sound money Is being re
newed. President McKlnley sees It.
Secretary of tho Interior Bliss sees It.
In his letter to General Tracy In New
York, voicing tho views of tho present
national administration, ho sounds tho
alarm and points out to all friends
of good government tho oncoming dan
ger. The next sheriff of Lackawanna
county will bo In position to give help
or opposition to Bryanlsm In the next
two natlonnl campaigns. Where, then,
does Candidate Schadt stand?
There Is no need to ask where Clar
ence I'ryor stands. His attitude Is
unmistakable. HIb foot are planted
firmly on the St. Louis platform. He
Is for protection, an honest dollar, and
all tho sound principles represented
nationally by William MoKlnley and
the Republican party. Ho seeks no
evasion of national Issues. He Is not
afraid of them. He does not liesltnto
to affirm, whenever asked that as
sheriff ho will stand by tho Republican
national candidates and principles.
This being true, have not the voters
of Lackawanna an equal right to know
what to expect should tho election of
Nov. 2 result In tho triumph of Mr.
Let Schadt toe the mark like a man.
In oth?r words, Schadt doesn't caro
a picayune's' worth for platforms.
What ho wants Is votes. Is that tho
meaning the Times seeks to convoy?
The Times Pica for Harmony.
Wo are particularly anxious that Dem
ocrats who did not stand with us on
tho currency question last year should
lino up in the battle now upon us. Lot
past differences bo forgotten, let us como
together and rally onco again under the
banners of old Democracy to .lave tho
stato nnd tho county from tho shame

Wo should nay you were anxious.
Two months ago you were calling those
Democrats "traitors," "tools of Wall
street," "purse proud aristocrats" and
a whole lot of other choice phrases In
dicative of resentment, Indignation and
contempt. At Reading your crowd

Harrlty who stood for sound money,

shed John T. Lenahan's blood becauss
ho and his friends would not quietly

hand the llles of the Scranton Times
coveting the period since Bryan's de

would Interest "Democrats who did not
stand with the Times on th'e currency
question last year" to read an authen

drove of peace. Pet haps wo may yet

We should like to seo In print a signed
denial by Mr. Schadt of Intended
treachery against tho Irish-American
candidates running for office this year
on his ticket, for comparison with tho
returns on Nov. 3; and we should also
like to know why Horn instead of Dug

If the alleged facts to which the

howling of "fraud" and "corruption"

We don't yet know anything about
the charges brought by ex-County
Treasurer Campbell against Mr. Pryor,
but we have a vivid recollection of
some transactions which took place
three years ago between the then Re
publican candidate for sheriff and a
man named Bailey, now mayor of this
city and chief rooter for Candidate
Horn. Perhaps these were what Mr.
Campbell had In mind.
Says the Times: "We respectfully
suggest to The Tribune that the people
were not afraid to trust 'Bailey, Bo
land, et al.,' a year ago last spring
and that nothing has occurred since
then to shake their confidence in those
excellent gentlemen." Well, it you

Tho retirement of Justlco Field from
tho supremo bench after his unparalleled

derstood that Attorney General McKen

courso makes a cabinet vacancy, but In
addition to this It Is an open secret that
Mr. Sherman desires to withdraw from
the department of state, and that his
resignation Is In tho hands of tho presi

for It means tho retirement of Mr. Sher
man not only from ofllco but from public
life, after a scrvlco very much longer
than that of Justlco Field upon the
It was In December, ISM, that John
Sherman entered congress, nt tho mo
ment when tho anti-slavery Btrugglo was
coming to that crisis which presaged se
cession and civil war. On nil the great
questions growing out of tho war, on re
construction, finance, and tho resump
tion of specie payments, he bore a lending
nnd Influential part, and as tepresenta
tivo In congress, senator nnd cabinet of
ficer has greatly served his country. Tho
rclntlons between Mnjor McKlnley nnd
Mr. Sherman have always been thoso of
mutual admiration nnd friendship ns well
ns of closo political alliance. Tho Ohio
district that sent Mr. Sherman to con
gress was nlso tho district that twenty
two years later honored Mator McKln
ley, nnd the younger was always a faith
ful nnd loyal supporter of tho older
statesman. In fact, Mr. Sherman In his
book speaks of nono of his political
friends and supporters In warmer terms
than ho does of Major McKlnley. And
well ho might, for tho history of more
than ono Republican national convention
records McKlnlcy's devotion to his chief.
And when, after the convention of 1S92,
It was seen that the mantle of Sherman's
presidential aspirations was to fall upon
McKlnley, none was readier to recognize
that fact than Mr. Sherman himself,
while ho freely fotetold McKlnlcy's suc
cess. "You will be president of tho Unit
ed States," ho ono day said to him long
prior to tho nomination. "If I am you
will 1)0 the secretary of stato," was tho
reply. It Is well known that Mr. Sher
man accepted this aiduous ofllco with
reluctanco nnd only upon tho urgent so
licitation of tho president. His with
drawal now Is his well-earned right,
and Is duo to his advanced years.
While we bellevo the people at this
tlmo would prefer to sec Judge Day
succeed Mr. Shermnn It is probablo that
Judge Day's Inclinations and tastes will
lead h'm to tho attorney general's of
fice rather than to the state department.
In that event Governor Long's advance

THE AUSTRIAN CLAIM.
From tho Philadelphia Ledger.
Tho note addressed by ex-Secretary of
Stnto Sherman to Governor Hastings,
asking tho governor to teport to tho fed
eral stato department the facts con
nected with tho shooting of Austrian
nnd Hungarian subjects nt Lattlmer, on
Sept. 10, Is tho Initial step In what prom
ises to bo a prolonged International cor
respondence. From tho Austrian minis
ter's point of view, the tumultuous and
riotous assemblage which Sheriff Martin
nnd his posso encountered on the fate
ful day was In no opposition to tho au
thorities of Luzerno county, and the sher
iff nnd his posso made an unwarranted
and unlawful uso of their power on tho
occasion. These aro matters which are
to bo finally decided by the courts, and
whatever the decision may be, aliens,
citizens nnd tho Austrian government
must accept It.
Neither tho federal government nor
tho governor of tho state can furnish tho
Austrian minister any light at this time
on tho powers and duties of tho sheriff
when tho shooting at Lattlmer occurred.
Tho federal government must reply to
tho Austrian government ns It did to
tho Italian government 'n the New Or
leans tragedy, that the legal aspects of
tho case nro within tho jurisdiction of
mo Pennsylvania courts unless It can
bo made to appear that the Issues in
volved can be heard In the federal courts.
In the enso of tho assassinated Italians
tho Louisiana courts failed to Ind'et tho
murderers, but tho claim for reparation
was honored by our government notwith
standing. Tho sum of $25,000 was paid to
tho relatives of tho Italian victims, not
ns nn International obligation, but as a
voluntary offering, nnd ns a token of
friendship for Italy. The London Globe,
commenting upon the Incident, said that
It was not to bo nssumed that Mr. Blaine
lntondcd to establish a precedent hold
ing tho federal government answerable
for tho delicts of every separate stnte;
that such a construction of tho situation
would bo carrying tho federnl principle
a degreo farther than was ever thought
Tho outcome of tho trial of the sheriff
and tho sheriff's deputies chatged witn
unlawful shooting nt Lattlmer may not
bo agreeablo to tho Austrian govern
ment, but It will be obliged to nblde by
It. Thero Is no parallelism between tho
New Orleans tragedy nnd tho Lattlmer
shooting. Tho New Orleans horror wns
a clear case of premeditated assassina
tion. Tho Lattlmer tragedy Involves tho
question of the sheriff's authority. The
sheriff and his deputies wero present on
the occasion to execute a delicate duty
which devolved upon them under tho
law. If tho sheriff had not been pres
ent, or If his posso had declined to nccom
pany him to tho scene, they would havo
been guilty of serious dereliction of duty.
Tho sheriff and his posso wero on bnnd
and could exerclso somo discretion In
executing ofllclal duty at tho time. Somo
latltudo must bo allowed a public of.
fleer in estimating the danger confront
ing him on such nn occasion. Whether
Sheriff Martin exceeded his lawful power
Is a question to bo tried dispassionately
In tho courts.
WHY IT IS IimMJIILICAX,
Trom tho New York Sun.
An overruling Providence has decreed
that tho Republican party, In tho closing
years of tho nineteenth century, should
stnnd for the gold standard, tho onc-hun-dred-cent
dollar, tho 'honest redemption
of publlo and prlvato obligations, tho pre
servation of existing Institutions against
the assaults of tho radicals and tho an
nlhllators, tV.o Traterlal prosperity of all
our Industrial Interests, tho American
Idea In our foreign affairs, and that na
tlonal policy of expansion which Is to
mako tho second hundred years of tho ex
istence of this government as wonderful
nivl Inspiring a story as has been the first.
For all this tho Republican party stands
up to date, like a rock; and for all this,
If tho Republican party Is not responsible,
no party Is responsible. Whllo It so stands,
nnd whllo its responsibility Is such. The
Sun Is with It, heart and soul, in national,
