Election day, November 2.
Ym, the Itepulilicnn "machine" la "on
the run." It Is running right nfter the
lleeinp Bryunltes who haven't the man
liness to stnml on their own platform.
It Intends yet to run these artful dodg
ers to cover.
Principle at Stake.
liven If the representation were true
that this Is "mcielj a local fight with
no licnilnsr cm national Issues," why
should any Hepuhliean prefer Seliadt to
Pryor, Horn t Jones Norton to Cope
land, K ll to I.aiiKstall', or other nomi
nees on the Uiyanlte ticket to their
equally wottliy nntl deservlns HepuWI
f nn competitors? The election of these
"emoevatle candidates would not bene
fit any ll-puhllcati voter. It would not
vial.o easier the payment of taxes; It
vould not leduee by a penny the cost
of county eo eminent; it would not
tiii;mcnt In' the sllGhtest deKiee the
If nothing hut tlio personal foi tunes
of the candidates wcie at stake; If the
point at Issue wuf simply whether
Schadt, nfl r nulling $50,000 out of the
tieasurer's oilier, should or should not
l'e prlvcn an oppoitunity to pull another
?'0,noo moio or ltss out of the sheilll"s
ofllce, nnd so on down the list of can
didates, there would be some excuse
for citizens tursonally uuncquninted
with nnd unconcerned in the Individual
a'falrs of these candidates should they
decide to pay small attention to the
sUukbIo and let It ohl ay it would.
I'ut though the Democratic mnnatr.rs
ore striving with di'sperat.- earnes-t-r.es
to conceal It, the fact is plain
that the real principle at stake this
fall Is whether nryanlim and free
vllwr, endorse 1 by .Schadt's conven
tion "FULLY AND WITHOUT 1112
SI2KVE," shall be permitted through
Hepnhllcan cnrelessness to cieep up
Into better position for the nntlonal
campaigns of 1S9S nnd 1900. This Is the
j-l?nl(lcance of the ptesent contest tint
arises high a'jive thi- purely porsonnl
n.'pccts of the situation and presents
to every voter In Lackawanna county
a duty which must lu shirked or met.
One merit of Pryor is that success
doesn't nwell his head. He never falls
to iccoznliie his filends.
Pnctimntic Mail Carrying:.
That, was certainly nn Interesting oc
casion In New York the other day
when, In the presence of representa
thea of the United States government
and prominent New York business and
pmfosslonal men gathered In one ot the
mall rooms of the general postofllco
building, the first public exhibition wus
given of the new pneumatic system of
forwarding ma!! from the central oillce
to the postal sul'i-.natlons in the torrl
toty soon to bo know:: as gt eater New
The first article transmitted by this
system was a Hlble wrapped In an
American Hag. It made the journey In
the round, alr-tlght tubes from the
general postofllce building to the sub-s-tatlon
in the Produce Kxchange, dis
tant more than a mile, in a minute
nnd a quatter. Other objects thus
transpoited during the exhibition test
were a live cot, a box of peaches for
("haunccy Dopow, a miniature elephant
f r Senator Piatt, u Tammany tiger for
.ludge Vnn "Wyck. a suit of clothes for
Mayor Strong, a gold brick from Klon
dike for AV. .1. Aikell and a vnilety of
other things selected with n view to
lending humor to the occasion. Kie
the test had ended It was found prac
ticable for the round trip of nearly
tlneo miles to be made by a paekago
containing COO letters In less than two
minutes. Heretofore the time required
for mail to be transferred from one ot
these stations to the other varied from
thlity minutes to four hours.
The ciedlt for first suggesting In this
country the pneumatic transmission ot
mall for short distances belongs, we
believe, to Hon. James N. Tyner, who
served ns postmaster general In the
cabinet of President drant. The credit
for working this suggestion out to a
successful practical conclusion belongs
to a company ot enterprising men of
whom John K. Jlllholland, of tho Now
York Tribune, lias been most active
nnd Inllucntlal. Tho system thus In
troduced will undoubtedly grow until
It will be In operation In 'all populous
communities and constitute a vast and
Fair play for McKlnley. Ho lias

The State Cnmpa'gn.
The claims of tho Ropuhllcan nomi
nees for state ofllco this fall, Mr. Hea
com and Mujor JlcCauley, upon tlio
full support of their party should not
be Ignored. Of the election of those
men tlioro Is absolutely no doubt. All
their opponents concede this. Tho only
uncertainty in the promlsos Is as to tho
slzo of their majorities, Tho opposition
seeks to hold thase majorities down so
low that by comparison with the 300,000
majority won In Pennsylvania last year
by McKlnley they will Indlcnte a rever
sal of sentiment away from McKlnley
to llrynn. This li Oarnian's hope. It
Is also what Dr. Hwallow and Mr.
Thompson, the Pittsburg Independent,
nio wot king to accomplish, although
they do not announce It as their pur
pose. All opponents of llrynnlsm
should .unite In offctlng uncompromis
AVe have had In the past year or two
a good deal of factional mud-sllnglng
nt tho conduct by tho Republican party
of tho state tieosury. Old slanders
have been revived and now ones coin
ed, yet It Is a foot thnt since 1S10, al
though thero has passed through the
hnnds of the tieasury department ut
Hnrrlsburg over $100,000,000 of state
funds the total loss sustnlncd by the
commonwealth in that whole period ot
67 years has been less than $10,000
50. 132.CI to be exact a loss occasioned
by the failure of a bank made n special
depository under act of assembly.
And yet, ns an additional safeguard
and as an evidence of Its desire to ,nt
Isfy honest opinion throughout tho
stnte, the last legislature passed a law
designating depositories nnd providing
for the return to tho stnte of Interest
on htnto balances on deposit. To fnlr
mlnded men this showing ought to
prove satisfactory and conclusive. The
opinion of others Is not worth consul
eilng. On their Individual and party merits
Messrs. Heacom and McCnuley stand
forth prominently and Invito public
conlidence. The former Is a progres
sive and public spirited Christian gen
tleman, warmly indorsed by his neigh
bors nnd certified by them as worthy of
Implicit trust. The latter Is a well
known veteran, whose heroism In war
has been fully matched by his substan
tial patriotism In pence. Faction-rent
as the Republicans of Pennsylvania
ate, and eager as are the fomenting
splilts In this factionalism to seize up
on the weak points of candidates bear
ing the organization's Indorsement, not
a word has been uttered derogatory to
either Mr. Heacom or Major McCau
ley; and men who can thus safely tun
the gauntlet may with equal safety
be cnti listed with the executive duties
of the ofllccs to which they aspire.
"Good local purposes and manage
ment are not the wot so," says ex
Pretidrnt Harrison, "for being associat
ed with good national purposes and
measures." The Republican party in
Lackawanna Is not afraid of Its platform.
On the Run.
Challenged to substantiate Its reck
less and defamatory a.sertlons touch
ing Republican campaign methods, the
local organ of Rryanlsm seeks evasion
In far-off generalities nnd In pitiable
attempts to be funny. It knows that
its pretension to superior respectabil
ity Is but the cant ot a party anxious
to find some means of concealing Its
abominable platform nnd blinding the
soters to Its despicable record. Unable
to face the truth, It resorts to the fa
miliar tactics of demngogism, tiles to
confuse and befog the situation and re
lies on that and an unprecedented
campaign fund to curry Its ticket
Not a word dare It utter concerning
the notorious processes In progress at
the Schadt headquarters and in
Schadt's Interest throughout tho coun
ty. Not a syllable dare It venture in
denial of the gross treachery ot which
its chief candidate nnd ally has 10
peatedly been guilty toward Irish
American candidates In the past. Nor
will it even hazard to say that Scliudt
is not at this moment prejuiing to re
peat his old tilck bv trading nvay
Norton, Dougherty nnd Kelly. Its eolo
rocouise seems to be a wishv washy
effort to stir up Republican dissension
by uttetlng transparent slandeis on
Republican leadership a game fo
threadbare that only those will be tak
en In by It who want a pretext to
desert their paity.
Two weeks before election wo feel
confident that Rryanlsm In Lackawan
na is beaten. The combinations which
It had relied upon to lift it Into office
are crumbling to pieces nnd the strong
common sense of the masses, awaken
ing nt Inst to tho significance of the
struggle, Is beginning to astett itself.
Rut we do not propose to let up. This
Is a light to a finish. Rryanlsm was
whipped one year ago; but two weeks
hence It must be exterminated.
The belief that party loyalty Is un
necessary save In presidential years
Is absurd when you reflect that presi
dential victories are won in conse
quence of tho organization of party
fotces achieved and perfected between
times. Ought a soldier to desert to tho
enemy or go homo ns soon as his side
wins a big battle?
" Destination, Court House."
It Is a fact worthy of especial note
that the Republican candidate for pro
thonotary, Mr. Copeland, U the only
active railroader nominated for a coun
ty ofllco by cither party In years. AVe
do not recall that the railway workers
of this valley, who have done so much
In their modest way to contribute to
Its prosperity, were ever before so di
rectly recognized In the formation of a
local ticket. The current Issue of the
Railway Employes' Journal says of Mr.
"John Copjland Is probably one of
tho befrt known railroad men In this
section of the ttate. He is, n resident
of Carbondale, where he has lived all
his life and holds the good will of all
to whom ho Is known. Mr. Copeland,
or 'Jack,' ns he in unlei sally known,
and b;ciiis to prefer being called, began
his ralltoad career ns tool boy In a
section gang on the Delaware and
Hudson gravity road at Carbondale,
when ho was 11 years of nge. A year
or bo later ho was given coal oars to
run and when he had attained the
seventeenth year of his ago he was
advanced to tho position of brnkuman
on tho little old passenger train which
ran on tho old Gravity and connected
Carbondale with Scranton. This posi
tion ho held until tho completion of the
Pennsylvania division which connected
the Union road at Olyphant with tho
Erie at Carbondale, when ho was
again forced to servo nnotlier appren
ticeship, nftor which he was promoted
to coal train conductor, and later to
th position of yard master, the most
dlftlciilt position to satisfactorily fill at
the disposal of a railroad company.
This position Mr. Copeland still holds.
'With him creed, color or nationality
does not exist, and In tho twenty or more
veara that bu has served tho Delaware
niul Hudson company as yard mnstcr
not a single unmanly action on his
part can be Haunted against him. To
nil worthy, ho holds out tin right
hand of fellowship, and ns a result
ho enjoys tho confidence of hit em
ployeis ns well ns that ot the hun
dreds who, In his official position, ho
directs. Ho Is a leading and active
member of ilia Carbondalo lodge of the
Order of Rallwny Conductors, and be
ing broad-minded and honest In his
views, It Is always his aim to uphold
that which Is right nnd crush that
which Is wrong. Mr. Copeland has nl
ways had the best Interests ot his
town and county nt heart, nnd In his
quiet nnd unostentatious manner has
never allowed nn opportunity to on
bancs their condition to pass unheeded.
.Sometime since ho was asked to allow
Ills name to bo used in connection
with the ofllco of protlionotary. nnd by
the earnest solicitations of his friends
ho was finally prevailed upon to allow
It. and ns a result he was tendered tho
nomination almost unopposed. If
Mack' Is elected the people of Lacka
wanna county can rest assured that
tho olllco of protlionotary will be In the
hands of a cool-headed, bright and de
Of Mr. Copeland's election by a
handsome plurality we have no reason
to doubt. His worthiness and his popu
larity both assure a successful return
from his candidacy at the polls. Rut
may we not also assumo that tho
great body of railway workers who
vole In Lackawanna, In addition to
complimenting their comrade, will also
vote for his equally worthy colleagues
on the Republican ticket, one of whom,
Clarence K. Pryor, was also once a. rall
toader In the ranks?
Ve concur In Roderick Random's
opinion that "the people of Lackawan
na county are not fools." They showed
that bv their votu against Rryanlsm
one year ago, and they will renew
their demonstration of the fact two
weeks from today, when they Intend
to give the locnl free trade and free
silver combination an even livelier
Accepted as Issues.
Mess.s. Halley and Roland nro not such
teiiible men alter all. Their only of
fense Is that, with tlio help of a good
inaity Democrats and Republicans they
gavo tlio Republican machine, not the
Republican party, a sound thrashing
which It well deserved In February of
ljt year. The results of that thrashing
are that twenty or more Democrats now
occupy the places which twenty or more
Republican machine adherents occupied
before, nnd thero Is no complaint that
tlie woik is not well done. Halley, Ro
land, et. nl., together with the solid
Democratic party and a good many Re
publicans, nre preset thing the same sort
of medicine for the Republican county
machine which they preset Ibed for tho
cltv machine In lSS'l. It will be admin
istered two weeks from tomorrow. Last
Evening's Bryan Organ.
"We call attention to tlv foregoing
not because the empty boast contained
In It is of the slightest consequence
but simply that the public may un
d 'rstand -why wo single out Halley,
Roland and tho rest of thi city hall
gang as factors ot prominence In the
present campaign and therefore prop
erly before the community for discus
sion. Here Is an authorized admission
from the cltv hall ofllclal organ th'at
the mayor and his crowd aru In the
county fight, allied as before with an
element In tho Republican party which
exhibits Its so-called Republicanism
chiefly by woiklng for Democrats,
Having undertaken to "prescribe" cer
tain things for the electors of Lack
awanna county this jear they must
not become excited If there Is a dls
poFltlon on the part of tho people this
time to examine the prescription more
carefully than tjiiy did a year ago last
spilng. Then they gulped It down
without much thought of tlio conse
q'uences.but we think that In tho light
of experience they will be less precipi
tate two weeks hence.
It is an unexpected pleasure to hav
th;se municipal oflldaH accepted Tiy
the enemy n living issues, even though
later on In tin- Times article tho editor's
courage fails him and lie closes by
begging off. Under these circum
stances wo feel that It will not be out
of place as the campaign progresses
to pres'nt facts bearing on tlio fitness
of the city hall gang to distend Itself
over the entlrw county,
BUNCOERS ABHOAD: BEWARE!
It Is tho rlck of the Uryanlzed De
mocracy this fall to mako lalso
charges against Republican methods,
ralso a big dust, hire Republican mal
contents to organize Republican bolts
and then coax Individual Republicans
to desert their party on tho represen
tation that "party ties needn't count
for anything In an off year." Ry this
trick. If it shall work, tho Rryanltes
will get a foothold for a hopeful tight
in national campaigns, and mako Just
so much tnoro trouble for McKlnley,
tho Republican congress and tho caufco
of sound money.
You now tee through this trick. Aro
you going to let It work?
AVe repeat our query of yesterday.
Is this man Schadt, this "good, strong,
manly man" as the Rryanlto organ so
sonorously calls him, the same Schadt
who got himself substituted as a dele
gate to tho Wllllamsport convention
two years ago In order to stab In the
back the Lackawanna candidate before
that convention, Hon. P. P. Smith?
We know that this Mr. Schadt, this
"good, strong, mnnly man," has no use
for tho Irish, because ho showed It
when he refused to help ex-Senator
McDonald, fought Rurko for commis
sioner and turned Tom Duggan down.
Rut was It he who also went far out
of his way to try to scalp Judge
Smith? AVe pause for a reply.
We always suspected that tho daily
Rryan organ was u terror In argument;
a regular wild man o( Romeo In de
bate; but now that It has risen to the
Intellectual height of advising an oppo
nent to soak his head wo stand In new
awe ot It. On this lofty plane of dis
cussion what else Is thero to say?
Wo find It difficult to pleaso our good
neighbor, the editor of the Times. One
day ho gleefully accepts Halley, Roland
and the city hall gang as an Issue In
tho present campaign as, Indeed, they
are, slnco It ta Bailey's police force,
Roland's brains and Robinson's money,
along with Schadt's, that Is making
the light and then, a day or two after,
in and behold I he tears his hair nnd
begs off, nlleglng that "Halley, Roland,
ct nl., afo not In this campaign as
candidates nnd cannot be said to be
among the Issues." Does tho Times
deny that tho city hall gang Bhnres
with Schadt the proprietorship of tho
present Uryanlzed Lacknwanna Dem
ocracy? Tho Tribune Bcem amazingly well In
formed about political rottcnnens, bnllot
box stuffing and stealing ballot boxes
from tho tourt houso In former yeurx.
You nro rlsht. It knows your par
ty's record nnd It knows JtiRt what the
present descendants and legatees of the
Democracy of thoso days are up to,
now. Their campaign to "restore tho
purity of the fathers" Is costing Schadt
nnd his colleagues a lot of sound
money, but nftor It Is over they will
have the ndvnntagc of largely Increas
That wns a very pcttlnent question
which General Hnrrlson raised In New
York, day before yesterday, when In
nn authorized Interview strongly In
dorsing the mnyoralty candidacy of
General Tracy he asked: "What has
the Republican party done since to
forfeit the confidence of thoso who
voted its ticket In 1S96?" This ques
tion Is equally pertinent to the cam
paign against Rryanlsm and the Chi
cago platform which Is now In such
spirited progress In this county.

Charles A. D.uia, eighty years old,
when death cut short his activities, wns
tho chief of American working newspa
per men; tlio most piomlnent figure in
Amcilcun Journalism: the pacemaker of
tho American press. To the last moment
of his life his working power remained
unimpaired and ho retained his leader
ship unchallenged. Even now, when ho
has passed away from his foremost
place, who Is thero to fill It? He wus
the last of the great editorial personal
ties, the men llko Greeley, nnd Ray
mond, and Bowles, men always greater
than the great newspapers thnt they
made to bo their instruments of expres
sion. There are, doubtless, today In
American Journa'lsm men as able and as
forceful as any of their predcces&ois,
but the Journalistic conditions that made
these overshadowing editorial Individ
ualities posslblo havo passed away.
Mr. Dana's extraordinarily long career
as. an active, working nowspaper man
made him a connecting link between two
schools of journalism. For fifty years,
from 1SI7 to 1SH7, he worked continuously,
except for an Intctvnl of six years from
IS62 to 1SCS, on two New York newspa
pers, tho Tribune nnd tho Sun. Ho
brought to tho Sun the old traditions
H.o made It. It was and Is- he. He was
Its editor In every senso of tho word.
The Sun's prosperity. Its achievements,
Its position. Its politics, aro expressions
of Mr. Dana's personality. Ills Individ
uality has been so stnmpcd on that pow
erful newspaper that it will long retain
tho Imprint. And so long as It does wo
can hardly say, with full truth, Dana Is
As a writer Mr. Dana showed himself
a past-master of the English language
and the possessor of a most piquant, easy
and lucid style. Ho was an extraordin
ary linguist. His personal tastes showed
the lino quality of his mind. Poetry,
languages, poreclalns, paintings, bronzes,
all of them tho most perfect and precious
of their k,nd, were the delight and occu
pation of his leisure hours, llo was an
American of tho Americans, a firm be
liever hi his country's greatness. Its mis
sion, nnd Its right to bo heard In fur
therance of that mission In tho councils
of the nations. He spoko from his heart
and for bis land when nt the great Cuban
meeting nt Cooper Union last Novem
ber ho said: "For my part, I can say
that, wherever liberty Is sought for,
thero Is my country, and wherever a
hand Is raUed or a blow struck to secure
the freedom of a people, there Is my
heart and nil tho aid that I can give
Hhall bo rendered ns long as I live." As
assl.sti.nt secretary of war ho rendered
his country lnestlmablo service during Us
daikest days from 'J2 to '03. Ho was a
many-sided man nnd from whatever side
men viewed him they saw a leader.
We are painfully conscious of the in
adequacy of this hurried tribute to tho
memory of the bend of our guild. Rut In
the thick of tho fight ngalnst time that
tho army of working newspaper men
must wago every night, thero can bo no
long halt even to do honor to tho chief
