of confidence by them.
"This wculd be inconsistent with
his whole thought and spirit and he
shrinks from It as from something thai
would embarrass him rather than help

Proved False Prophets.
A few months ago the enemies of
Senator Penrose professed to be de
lighted because this year, for the first
time, his nomination to succeed him
self would be made by a popular vote
of the Republican party at the pri
maries. In thta they claimed to see
an opportunity for his defeat. They
freely asserted that the old system of
electing United States senators by the
votes of the legislators gave him an
advantage that he would not have at
the primaries, where tlie people would
have a say, and they were Jubilant
over the prospects of bis defeat for re
nominatlon. The result proved they were fa1s9
prophets. Mr. Penrose was nominated
for the United States senator as tne
free choice of a majority of the Re
publicans at the primaries, and as the
standard-bearer of his party in Penn
sylvania he will be elected in Novem
ber by a vote that will carry dismay
into the camp of his traducers.
Pennsylvania, with its great popula
tion, its vast resources, Its multiplied
activities, its glorious past an i its
prospects of a magnificent future, re
cognizes in Senator Penrose a man of
the caliber, experience and capacity
essential to its perpetuity. He has
stood through all his public career and
stands today for the substantial great
ness of the commonwealth. The state's
workers and its Industries have in him
a representative of the type of man
that makes for achievement.
During his many years of service in
Harrisburg and Washington his pow
erful influence and active support
have been given in behalf of laws frr
the welfare of the people. The records
will prove this fact. His opponents
charge him with undue power, but the
benincent mining laws, the fattory
laws and the many other acts passed
for the welfare of the wage-earners
prove that his efforts have been for
the public good.
His devotion to the principles of
protection for American Industry has
made him the target of special abuse
by his free trade opponents. But In
this he has been actuated by a pro
found sense of his duty to the state
of Pennsylvania, whose pre-eminence

In recent years has done more In th's
nenair man senator Penrose. The de
velopment of the state's industries,
keeping pace, with its great growth
In population, has been a mighty factor
In the advancement of the common
wealth to its present proud position.
The opponents of industrial protec
tion are the enemies of real progress
In Pennsylvania, and thev realize that
If they succeed in defeating Senator
Penrose they would remove from pur
11c life one of the most powerful advo
cates of the protective tariff that
stands in the way of their destructive
free trade doctrine.
Foreign War Justifies Tariff.
The wisdom of the protective policy
which has developed Pennsylvania's
industries and those of the nation.
and which enables them to supply the
American market, Is now more appar
ent than ever when all the countries
of Europe are Involved In the vortex
of a fierce and destructive war.
If the theories of the free trale ad
vocates had prevailed In the past and
we were now dependent on foreign
Imports, as we would be were It not
for the building up of our industries
under Republican rule, this country
would be unable to supply the tMngi
it needs because its manufacturing ac
tivities would be undeveloped.
The Republican policy of a protec
tive tariff, of which Senator Penrose
is the foremost advocnte, has resulted
in bringing to a high state of perfec
tion the great Industrial establish
ments of the nation and the state, and
furnished the stimulus for the employ
ment of American labor to supply our
heme market independent of imports
from foreign workshops.
Althoueh the war In the Old World
has barely begun, it has already de
monstrated the value of the protective
tariff to encourage American Indus
try. Those dealers who have depend
ed for their supplies on Imports fr.im
Europe already realize that they would
be better off If they had directed tlie'r
energies to the production of the
things they need at home. The perpe
fuity of our national life demanTs the
Industrial independence of the repub
He, and protection is the cornerstone
of our Industrial Independenc e.
Pennsylvania should take no steps
backward in the present crisis of the
world's history. The state should not
risk the prosperity of its people at
this time by accepting theorl-s that
are destructive of its best interasts
or electing to Important office men
whose economic doctrines are oppesed
to Its vital and substantial welfare.
The man to be elected Unite l States
senator this year is the man who by
his record has proved himself the un
faltering supporter and alvocate of
nrotecfion to American Indus' rv, an J
.iat man is Boies Penrose.

BANKS ARE HOARDING MONEY
Secretary McAdoo Warns Institutions
About Piling Up Reserves.
Secretary McAdoo adopted measures
to urge national banks to extend legiti
mate credit and charge normal lnter:
est rates on loans. He telegraphed
to ten national banks In the four re
serve cities in the south that their
requests for additional crop-moving
funds from the federal government
would not be granted at this time and
made it clear that his action was
taken in connection with reports of
excessive Interest rates and restric
tion of credits.
Mr, McAdoo declared that there was
an extraordinary hoarding of money
by banks throughout the country and
piling dp of reserves without occasion.
He said reports showed that money
hoarding has been carried on by banks
to an extr:me degree and announced
that he expected to focus attentlcn
upon the guilty banks by issuing a
dally list of those with excessive re
serves. Bankers Are Sentenced.
