.' PRAISE FOR PENROSE.
A. Suggestion of Pennsylvania's
I Young Senator For National
HE IS NOT A CANDIDATE.
Senator Sullivan, Democrat, ui Senator
Woleott, Republican, Pablidy Declare
For tit Seating of Colonel Quay y tha
TJiiied State Senate.
Harrlsburg. Not. 21- The fact that
United States Senator Boles Penrose
yesterday left for Washington, where
lie will establish headquarters for the
winter session of congress, ha moved
the seat of political activity, as far as
the seating of Colonel Quay Is concern
ed, to the national capital. Senator Pen
rose has been a conspicuous figure in
the public eye during the last ten days
owing to the. mention of his name la
connection with the chlnnanshlp of
the Republican national committee to
succeed Senator Hanna. A number
of leading newspapers throughout the
country have had very complimentary
mention of the young and popular sen
ator from Pennsylvania in this con
nection. The New YorkTribune. that
stalwart Republican organ, has been
one of the most persistent in present
ing arguments In favor of the selection
of an active and progressive young Re
publican to fill the responsible post of
national chairman for the coming cam
paign and has boomed Penrose as its
first choice. The fact has been referred
to that Senator Penrose has made
many friends among the Influential
Republicans of both the senate and the
bouse at Washington, and that he could
count upon the hearty co-operaton of
all elements of the party In lining up
the Republican hosts for the presi
iTKINLET AND PENROSE.
While appreciating these very flat
tering references to himself. Senator
Penrose has announced that he Is not
an aspirant for the party leadership
In the coming canvass and that he will
be entirely satisfied to work for the
renomination and the re-election of
President McKinley in the ranks of the
Republican organization. The close
personal relations which exist between
the president and Senator Penrose
have been frequently commented upon
by correspondents of newspapers out
side of the borders of Pennsylvania,
le nator Penrose, it will be recalled,
was the first of the party leaders in
the state to publicly declare In favor
f Major McKlnley's nomination for
president, and throughout his adminis
tration there have been few more wel
come visitors at the White House. It
Is pleasing to the friends of the bril
liant young Pennsylvania senator that
his strong personality and Lis many
admirable qualities should be recog
nized by leading Republicans of the
country, cad especially by the presi
dent The suggestion of Senator Penrose,
among others, for the national chair
manship was prompted b the report
that Senator Hanna wished to be re
lieved of the executive work of the
coming campaign, though he would be
of course deeply interested in the suc
cess of the canvass. It Is not Improb
able that Senator Hanna will again be
Induced to lead the fight for President
McKinley, and if he does It is safe to
predict that he will leave nothing un
done to get out the Republican vote

j A DEMOCRAT FOR QTJAT.
! The last week has brought a number
of the national 'leaders of both parties
to Washington to be ready for the
opening of congresa. Naturally Penn
sylvaniana are Interested in the opin
ions of the members of the senate upon
the question of what action will be
taken upon Governor Stone's certlfi
cate of appointment of Colonel Quay
to the vacancy in the senate from this
i United States Senator W. V. Sullivan,
'of Mississippi, has arrived In Wash
ington and will remain there until the
opening of congress. Senator Sullivan
is a member of the national Demo
cratic executive committee and stands
high in the councls of his party. It
will be recalled that his affirmative
vote in the senate last winter saved the
peace treaty from defeat. In convers
ing upon the queston of the appoint
ment of Colonel Quay Senator Sullivan
i "I heartily favor the seating of Sen
ator Quay, of Pennsylvania, on the
strength of his credentials of appoint
ment by Governor Stone.
"As a Den ocrat. I believe la abiding
by party rules, and unless a caucus of
Democratic senators decides against
supporting Senator Quay, which action
I think is decidedly improbable. I shall
certainly record my vote In his favor.
"1 have a great admiration for his
wonderful abilities, and I do not be
lieve that he has been Justly treated
by bis poiitiial enemies in Pennsylva
nia. In fact, I am Inclined to think
that he has been the victim of bitter
perseoutioB, and I for one will be glad
to aid in his vindication.
' Senator S illiv&n's views are shared
by many other Democratic senators,
and it can b asserted on excellent au
thority that no Democratic caucus that
may . be called will adopt any resolu
tion Inimical to Senator Quay.
THE ELOQUENT WOLCOTT SPEAKS
There Is no stronger personality in
the senate than Senator Woleott. of
Colorado. He li the finest orator la
either branch-of congress, and is a
power on tin Republican side. Presi
dent McKinley has shown confidence
in his abilities by appointing him one
of tht commissioners to go abroad and
secure, if possible, en international
agreement on the subject of bimetal
lism, and his report on the work of the
commission was an able and states
man Irk e document.
j Senator Woleott did not hesitate to
give his views' regarding the right of
Colonel Quay to a seat In the senate
on rOovernor Stone's credentials. He
expressed himself ia his usual positive
and straightforward manner.
"1 have very little to say on that sub
ject," said Senator Woleott, "but I
want to state Ttght here that I care
nothing at all abrt senatorial pre
cedents. I shall take the greatest pos
sible pleasure in voting to seat Sena
tor Quay. I am familiar with his dis
tinguished services In the past, and I
think the country needs him.
When asked 4or--hia views concern
ing the recent state elections through
out the country Senator Woleott said:
"The general result of the elections
is to make certain'' the renomination
end re-election of President McKinley.
Whatever the, . rose- may have been ia
the far western states it was not a vic
tory for-aaU-lmperialism. but a dis--t'not
personal triumph for Mr. Bryan.
.To. my mlnd.lt is evident that Bryan
. . will be renominated upon a platform
which will stand for anti-imperialism
la the east and 16 to 1 in the wet"
' SENATOR HOAR'S POSITION.
There Is nothing in the way of pre
cedent In the Quay ease that neeJ
bother aay one. If these election cases
had Invariably been settled en their
merits there would be something in
precedent to follow, but every one
knows that as a rule they have not been
so settled. Seating a senator on merit
means that the constitution of the
United States shall decide. Senator
Hoar, of Massachusetts, is absolutely
right In his analysis of the constitu
tion. Mr. Hoar is a conservative man
altogether too conservative, perhaps,
to be thoroughly in touch with the ac
tivities of modern progress but he
has always beea a careful student of
lie constitution, end there U no great
er siictier in ail congress -pou con
stitutional points. In his opinlnon the
constitution does not contemplate leav
ing a seat vacant in the senate. For
that reason a governor Is given the
power to appoint if for any reason
whatever a vacancy occurs, the inten
tion of the constitution being that the
states shall always have their full rep
resentation. Mr. Hoar will vote for
Colonel Quay as he has voted io simi
lar cases heretofore, and If the Quay
case were to be decided strictly accord
ing to his contraction of the constitu
tion there would be no vacancy la
The trouble has been that In decid
ing election cases partisanship has
usually controlled. It is either a ques
tion of party politics or else some ques
tion like silver has divided the votes.
The recent cases la the west, from
Montana and Washington, were decid
ed, not oa their merits, but from party
policies. There Is nothing in prece
dent established only through partisan
motives that need cause any trouble
for Colcsel Quay's friends.
The Interviews with Senators Sul
livan and Woleott have been telegraph
ed to the principal newspapers of the
country, and with these pronounced
tentiments coming from representa
tives of both political parties, there
have been many editorials from Re
publican and Democratic editors pre
dicting the prompt seating by the sen
ate of the former Republican national
chairman upon the governor's commission.

Philadelphia. Nov. 21. Another evi

combine, wclca was for years in con

can organization In this city, la no
longer potential was given this week
when a large majority of the Republi
can members of common council united
la signing a pledge to vote for the
election of George McCurdy for pres
ident of that body. Mr. McCurdy is a
progressive Philadelphlan who follows
the leadership of Israel W. Durham,
and who has no time for the Martin
outfit. He is a stalwart Republican,
has no sympatuy with the insurgents,
and was one of the most active of the
young Republicans who brought about
the election of Samuel H. Ashbridge
as mayor. The position of president
of common council Is a very influential
one. and it has long been an asset ia
the political combination of which Mar
tin was the acknowledged leader. Since
Martin has Joined hands politically

signing of the pledge for McCurdy
means his success in the Republican
caucus, and nothing can prevent his

big fortunes since they entered poll
tics. Martin has tied his political fu
ture to the Wanamaker personal ad
vancement movement, of which the
people of Pennsylvania have had some
experience during the last few years.
Wanamaker un has not had a popu
lar boom In the Keystone state. But
with a determination characteristic of
me ncn man witn political ambitions
to satisfy, the warfare upon the Repub
lican organization is to be kept up.
BOLTERS' LATEST MOVE.
The Wanamaker-Martln-Fllnn insur
gents lave drawn up a memorial to the
United States senate, protesting against
the seating of Colonel Quay upon Gov
ernor Stone's certificate of appoint
ment. They were unable to carry out
their project in the legislature to elect
en insurgent or even a Democrat to the
United States senate that is, any
body but Colonel Qtfj. They were
overwhelmingly beaten afterward In
the canvass for delegates to the Re
publican state convention, the vote be
ing nearly five to one against them.
When the friends of Colonel Quay in
the convention nominated Colonel Bar
nett. and they opened the insurgent
and Democratic batteries of personal
abuse upon this gallant soldier, they
were lgnominousiy routed by the peo
ple at the polls.
BARXETT'S BIG MAJORITY.
' General Reeder, who as chairman of
the Republican committee managed
the late contest, was in town this week
when the official returns were received
from Harrisburg. He was naturally
pleased with the figures. Barnett's of
ficial plurality was 110.488.
For the first time in three cam
paigns was the Republican target of
the insurgent and Democratic guns
given a clear majority of all the
votes cast at the election. Mr. Beacom,
the candidate for state treasurer in
1S97; Colonel Stone, the nominee for
governor last year, and Colonel Har
nett, the Republican candidate this
fall, were each subjected to scandalous
assaults from this insurgent cabal. Al
though they were all elected, in 1897
Beacom, of all the votes cast at that
election, was in the minority by 10,169.
Though Colonel Stone won in his
fight for the governorship, he lacked
19.303 of having a majority of the
votes polled at that election. But then,
after the Insurgents' exhibition of
party treachery in bolting the Repub
lican caucus on the United States sen
atorshlp in the legislature, and their
continued disloyalty in opposing the
Republican candidate for state treas
urer, and espousing the causeof Creasy,
a Bryanlte, the Republicans of Penn
sylvania elected Colonel Barnett state
treasurer and gave him a majority of
9.922 over the combined votes of the
Democratic, Prohibitionist and Pop
ulist and Union Reform party candi
dates, with the insurgent vote for
Creasy, Democrat, thrown in.
After this emphatic rebuke from the
Republican voters the Insurgents, or
at least their selfish leaders, who knew
only personal politics, set out again
to have an organized fight against the
Republican organization and with a
purpose to unite with any party or
faction to elect their candidates for the
legislature where they are defeated
in Republican conventions.

A tttthrr Novel Complaint.
An English traveler once met a com
panion, sitting In a state of the most
woeful despair and apparently near
the last agonies, by the side cf one of
the mountain lakes of Switzerland. He
inquired the cause of his sufferings.
"Oh." said the latter. "I was very hot
and thirsty and took a large draft of
the clear water of the lake and then
sat down oa this stone to consult my
guidebook. To my astonishment, I
found that the water cf this lake Is
very poisonous! Oh, I am a goue man

When a youngster I was homeward

over the taffrail, looking down into the

wltes a world wide traveler. A gloomy

up rose a fearsome monster, some IS
feet across and In general outline more

height of about sii feet, failing agaia

have been heard for miles. I must have
faluted with fright, for the next thing
I was conscious of was awakening un
der the rough doctoring of my ship
mates. Since then I have never seen one leap
upward in the daytime. At night,
when there Is no wiud, the sonorous
spash Is constantly to be heard, al
though why they make that batlike leap
out of their proer elemeut Is not easy
to understand. It does not seem possi

heard the whole street In shrieks and
rushed to the window. Boys were
climbing trees, mothers bustled their
babies Inside and locked their doors,
and down the center of the street
came that dog like ull possessed. Of
course I thought he was mad. So
would anybody, nnd I shot him.
