Qaay iu tho last Legislature and were
able to hold the balance of power.
Tbey prevented an election. Quay bad
carried the State and had carried the
Legislature, but there was treachery,
and treachery prt vented an election.
The regular caucus nomluated Quay by
a very Urge mjorlty. The Republican
State Convention has not only invited
Quay to become a candidate before the
next Legislature, but ha insisted that
be shall be. The reason for this insist
ence upon the part of the convention
is that Quay . represents a great fjnda
mental principle, that of the rule of tbe
majority. Tbe convention Insists that
the Republicans may go to the pri
maries and vote for whom they see tit;
that they may go into conferences,
conventions and caucus and support
anyone, but when tbe will of the ma
jority has been ascertained they must,
if tbey are Republicans, abide by the
decision of that majority. That is all
there is to this Quay case, and for that
principle of majority rule the Republi

The charges preferred by the insur

Insurgent John Shaffer, former Com
mitteeman of Paint No. 2, is perhaps,
after all, only a reflex of the silly va
poring of the defeated insurgent can
didate, who, well knowing that-they
were honestly and fairly defeated, are
now trying to delude the people into
believing that tbey were fraudulently
defeated and that the minority should
rule, Mr. Shaffer's Mibservieucy to
former Chairman Berkey and his po
litical ilk was so well known and pro
nounced that he was selected by them
as a member of the executive commit
tee. The charge that Shaffer permitted
150 fraudulent votes to be deposited in
the ballot-box in bis district is an im
putation under which no honest man,
especially a sworn election otHcer,
should rest for a minute. Shaffer, be
fore opening the polls, took a solemn
obligation that be, as Judge of Elec
tion, would permit none but Republi
cans to vote. In order that he might
not stultify himself he took tbe neces
sary precaution evidently at the sug
gestion of bis Somerset masters to
refuse ballots to all voters until they
appeared at the polls, something never
before attempted or beard cf at a pri
mary election in Somerset county.
Shaffer permitted insurgent watchers
to challenge every Stalwart vote they
saw fit, and he rejected the votes of all
Stalwarts concerning whose right to
vote there was the slightest doubt.
When it came to the iosurgnt vote it
was a different matter, as will Le amply
elucidated at the proper time. Judge
of Election Shaffer, a member of the
executive committee of the Republican
County Committee, in presumed to
have sufficient intelligence to compre
hend not only the meaning of an oath,
but the rules of the party of which be
was an executive officer; but in defi
ance of both be failed to make a return
of the vote cast for the candidates for
Delegates to tbe State Convention. We
do not presume to say that Shaffer did
this under the instructions of his Som
erset masters, but we do say that the
political clique be has served in every
possible way are now engaged in
desperate attempt to smirch what rep
utation for integrity he may heretofore
have enjoyed. It is up to "Lallyjohn
When Messrs. K wntz aud Kooser,
astute and skilled attorneys that tbey
are, tell you that they are "all right;'
that the name of tbe former will be
placed on the Republican official ballot
this fall and that the latter will b- ad
mitted to the Congressional Conference,
don't believe them. They don't be
lieve it themselves. It was only a few
years since when there was a rumpus
in tne Uungreesion&l Conference at
Johnstown, and it was adjourned to
Harrisburg. Kooser's three conferrees
voted for him, declared him nouiina
ted, and be forthwith cu-d a eertifi
cate of his nomination to be filed with
the State Department. He came borne
aud ou all occasions, at all times and in
all places solemnly assured his friends
that be had been legally nominated and
that the court could not do otherwise
loan so declare. In these statements
he was ably seconded by Mr. Koontz.
t-.very rea.ier or tne uerald will re
call the contemptuous language of
Judge Simon ton when he dismissed
Mr. Kooser's case and turned him
with his simple, silly claims, oat of
court At the time of the "fake" pri
maries all will recall how earnsetly
both Koontz and Kooser proclaimed
from the housetops that "faking"
would be legalized by the court and
their absolutely untenable poiition
would be sustained by legal decision.
The matter came to be heard heft-re
one of the purest and ablest judges in
the Commonwealth, with the result
that "fake" primaries were declared to
be illegal, aud the absolute fallibility
of Koontz and Kooser as lawyers wa?
once more made plain. We could cite
a number of other instances in fact,
in every instance in which any of our
local political trouble have required
judicial determining in which these
able lawyers have taken held of the
hot end of the stick. There is, in our
judgment, no possibility of the Dau
phin county court, before which the
matter will be heard, condoning or
legalizing the fraud at the late primary
and the subsequent convention, t-y
sustaining the certificate oootf-in'ng
Mr. Kooutz' s name and directing his
name to be placed upon the official
ballot. We do not beliere that this
will be done, nor do we beliere that
Mr. Koontz believes that it will be
done. The only official ballot th.t Mr.
tvoontz'a name will appear upon this
fail will lie beaded "Democratic" or
Independent," and we believe it will
appear upon one or the other.
As for Mr. Kooser, we can scarcely
conceive of bis having tbe hardihood
to present himself for admission to the
Congressional Conference. Drowning
men grasp at straws, and there is no
calculating on what Mr. Kooser will
dt. Of one thirg we are fully assured
He was never in a Congressional Con
ference save as a proxy, and he will
not be admitted to the forthcoming one
even as a proxy. Messrs. Koontz and
Kooser were both defeated, humiliat
lugly defeated, at tbe recent primary,
and no amount of fraud perpetrated or
attempted, no amount of brag and
bluster on the part of themselves or
friends, cau change the result. The
Republicans of Somerset county have
spoken through their ballots; they
have handed in a verdict of want
of confidence in the Republicanism of
W. II. KoonU and Francis J. Kooser.
Their verdict is final and their will
must be obeyed.

who participated in the primary election

d id ate, with tbe a-nUtance of former
County Chairman J. A. Berkey, bare
engaged in a dfwperate effort to defeat
the expressed will of the people or to
destroy the Republican party organiza
tion of this county.
True Republicans have and will con
tinue to lie guided by higher motives
than the political aspirations of any man
or set of men, and they have resolved
that the sovereign voice of tbe people
when once honestly and fairly ascer

The Stalwart Republicans of Somerset
county and all wht believe in a free
ballot and a fair count, in clean politics
and common decency, know their rights
under the law aud they have the courage
and manhood to maintain them.
The unlawful and abborent Kluklux
methods so long practiced by the Demo
crats of the South can not obtain recog
muon among tne Intelligent and incor
ruptible Republicans of Somerset coun
ty, and those who iiave attempted to in
troduce them in order that they might
override the expressed will of tbe people
and the law, have already found them
selves stranded high up on the beach of
public disapproval, with their every un
fair and illegal move checkmated.
The unblushing action of former Chair
man J. A. Berkey throughout his term of
office, shows clearly that a bold schema
naa oeen batched prior to the time
he issued the official call Lr tbe primary
election to deprive the Republican voters
of the County of a free billot and a fair
count, and if the aaion of the Dsn cratij
County Convention, which left open its
legislative ticket until after the Republi
cans had held their primary, is capable
of lair interpretation, it must be that Mr.
Berkey hai iniJe arrangements to fuse
with that party, in case his attempts to
rule the organization over which he pre
It is known to all men that Berkey de
layed calling the primary rntil tbe last
possible day permiiwible under the party
rules, ad then issued the call in the
most obscure way possible: it is eo oally
well known that he withheld the names
of announced candidates, some of whom
bad paid tbe required fee weeks before,
until the last minute, when tbey were
published in the same obscure manner.
It is known that in violation of party
rules and precedents he solicited persons
in the various districts to announce their
natnea as candidates for Committeemen,
and that be caused their names to be il
legally printed on tbe ballots.
It is knot n that in violation of party
rules and fair play be withheld the tick
ets and blanks from Stalwart members of
the County Committee until the morning
of the eletion, when bis agnts delivered
the ballots and blacks to C m mitteemsn
with instructions from Bsrkey to rac-niva
and count only such mougrel ballots as
bore the signature of the Chair.n . An 1
right here we wish to tl.rect attention to
the faot that had the Committeemen ob
served the arrogant and uniawrr.l in
structions of the Chairman, not less than
10 votes In Somerset horoug'i and 150 in
Somerset township, all of which bore the
names of Messrs. Koontz and Kendall
for Assembly, and Jrancis J. Kooser for
Congress, would have been thrown out
ana not counted. It was not ouly illegal
but altogether seuieleas and unfair for
the Chairman to undsruke lo deprive tha
voters or any district, e-ioeeiallv th.w
lying adjacent to borough, such as Som
erset, Summit, E.klick, Quemahoniog,
Black and Brothersvalley. of their
right to vote any ticket save the on, h.
designated for such district-. A voter
had a psrfoc; right to vote any paper
with the names of all the candidate i.
scribed thereon and the election boards
were Donna to receive and count aoch rm.
had it been offered. In Addison tan.h;n
the Committeeman is aliened to h r
ceivedten ballots printed on white paper,
six of which, containing- tha names of the
Stalwart candidates, were thrown out,
whUethe four remaining ones, bearing
the names of the insurgent candidates.

It is known that the Chairman's notice
of removal, forwarde J by "mail to the
Committeeman of Larimer township,
was not received by the Committeeman
nntii the evening of tbe election, but in
tbe face of all this, one Tressler, an acent
of Berkey's, opened an illegal voting
place, and Borkey and bis fellow
schemers have since undertaken to throw

place in said districti
It is known that Berkey without the
approval or consent of the executive com
mittee, which ha was bound to procure
in order to act within the party rules and
tbe law, undortook to appoint Committee
men in tbe districts of Ogle, Garrett and
Casselmaa, and that when the people of
those districts resented his unwarranted
cif im of right to appoint election officers
for them and elected officers or their own
choice, he and bis fellow schemers
arbitrarily aud illegally undertook to
throw out tbe only votes legally cast in
these three districts, and to count tbe
votes returned by the alleged officers of
illegally organized polling places.
It is known that corrupt political
agents procured by unlawful mearis tbe
resignation of the Committeeman of Ben
son borough, who bad been elevated to
tbat position by Stalwart votes, and
Berkey designated one of his political fol
lowers to conduct the primary in tbat
district. When a majority of ths voters
refused to recognize this corrupt and
high-handed proceeding Berkey and his
fellow schemers uudertiok to throw
out the vote cast at tbe only legally or
ganized and properly conducted poll in
It is known tbat io preparing the blanks
for tbe election ths Chairman made no
provision for counting and returning any
votes tbat might be cast for candidates
for delegates to tbe State Convention, and
that in tbe large district of Paint No. 2.
whpre tbe Committeeman who conducted
the election and certified andor oath the
result of the votes cast, no return was
made of a single vote having been count
ed for delegates to the State Convention.
The reader should not louse sight of tbe
fact tbat the Committeeman of Paint No.
2 is Jobn W. Shaffer, who was a member
of the executive committee, selected for
that position on account of his unques
tioned loyalty to former Chairman Berk
ey and his fellow schemers.
It is known that Chairman Berkey re
fused Stalwart candidates permission lo
inspect the returns received by him, sn
action altogether unfair and unjustifiable.
It is known and can not be denied Ibat

the purpose of placing candidates for

finally taken np tbe Chair declined to
entorUiu a motion from a duly elected

before the roll call proceed, and when Ibis
arbitrary and unlawful ruling was made,
a majority of the duly and legally elected

Harrisbur. May 1. There la noth
ing but praise heard regarding the
work of the Republican state conven
tion held here last week. The ticket
nominated has been very favorably re
ceived. Although the supporters of
the unsuccessful candidates for con-gressman-at-large
were manifestly dis
appointed over the result, they have
taken their defeat gracefully, and
there Is a general disposition to turn
In and roll up the largest Republican
majority that has ever been given in
the Keystone state. It is certain that
Pennsylvania will again lead the col-
nmn of stares in the size of the major
! ity she will give to the Mc Klnley pres
: identlal ticket. The nominees on the
state ticket will keep well up with the
electors. The nomination of Senator
E. B. Hardenbergh, of Wayne county,
was a foresoue conclusion. Before the
balloting all other aspirants for audi
tor general withdrew. With a clear
field, this popular Republican from the
northeastern end of the state, upon
motion of Senator Penrose, was nom
1 mi ted by acclamation. There was a
little brush over Ihe selection of candl
. dates for congressmen-at-large. Robert
. H. Foerderer, a well known manufae-
: turer of Philadelphia, and Galusha A.
Grow were finally declared to be the
winners. Mr. Foerderer got 338 votes
; and Mr. Grow 125. The balance was
I divided between the losers. Dr. Flood.
of Crawford, getting 89 and former
Congressman Arnuld, of Clearfield. 40.
Tbe Insurgent Republicans, while all
voting for Grow, would have liked to
had him defeated, as they would then
have made a campaign against the reg
ular organization leaders, charging
them with his defeat. Colonel Quay,
however, insisted all along that the
veteran Grow should be renominated,
even though he had lost his political
following' and there were only senti
mental considerations which Influenced
those who did not wish to eee the old
warhorse turned down.
Not only were the Insurgents disap
pointed at the renominatlon of Crow,
but they had the ground cut from un
der them by the work of the stalwart
leaders who framed the party platform.
Fllnn and his machine followers of Al
legheny turned up with all sorts of
refprm resolutions regarding the
ballot, the election of Vnited State
senatoiVby popular vote and other
Issues, which they hoped wonld hi ig
nored bv the friends of Colonel Otay.
In this they wer checkmated. Colonel

William Flmn found that not only
did the platform committee rer-rt in
favor of the election of United Suites
senators by peimlar vote, but took the
most radlcnl grtvtnd In favor of ballot
reform and against e.11 forms of elec
FOR BALLOT REF0RJL
This Is ths plank on ballot reform:
"The Republican.party of Penn
sylvania has slways stood for an
honest ballot and. a fair count. In
the furthc-aace of this idea, an act
was passed In 1S91. known as the
Baker ballot law, for the purpose
of protecting the citizen in the ex
ercise of the elective franchise.
This act was passed by a Repub-
llcan legislature at the Instance of
the Ballot Reform association, imd
wps intended to secure a secret and
honest ballot. Further safeguards
were thrown around the ballot law
by the supplemental act of 1S93.
In addition, however, to these laws
we faver such legislation as will
enable the courts to epen the ballot
boxes upon the petition of citizens,
duly presented, in all cases where
complaint is properly made, alleg
ing fraud in the holding of an elec
tion or the counting of tbe vote
cast, so that if fraudulent ballots
are placed in the boxes or a false
count has been made it can be ex
posed by the courts with expedition
and all offenders aga'nst the puri
ty of the ballot detected and
brotient to speedy justice."
Another Issue that was squarely met
by the state convention waa that as to
majority rule. Upon his subject the
"We believe in the fundamental
principle of government that the
will of the majority, properly as
certained, shall always prevail. We
declare that this principle applies
as well to political pnrttea as to
other governmental affairs. The
will of tbe majority must always
be ascertained under the rules, cus
toms and usages of a party organ
ization. Therefore, the primary
elections, the county and state con
ventions, the senatorial aed con
gressional conferences and the par
ty caucuses have come to be an in
tegral part of tue machinery of
party organization ior the purpose
of ascertaining the will of the ma
jority of those who have a right to
participate therein. We declare it to
be the test of party fealty to ob
serve these rules and customs In
ascertaining the win of the majori
ty by Attending the party conven
tion, conference or caucus, and
when the will of the majority has
been ascertained It Is the duty of .
every person who claims to be a
Republican to abide by that de
cision." That plank was a body blow to the
caucus bolters of the last legislature
and the manipulators of the fusion
scjvams already ou loot for the dafcat
