WILL THERE BE MORE THAN TWO
There is an element not alto- u
gether satisfied to confine the a
choice for governor to the two i
gentlemen already announced. 5
and this element would be glad,
to have one or more in the race p
in order that they may not be
forced to accept either of the
two, who, from all indications
are going to make a campaign e
of personal bitterness, both of h
the candidates now before thei
voters, for a number of years
have had a personal antipathy.
for one another, and nothing the ti
one would do, or say, would meet?
with the approval of the other, t
therefore, the campaign which,
they will make cannot be of an
educational value to the masses. tI
The time of these two gentlemen
will be taken up .n criticising r
each other, and thus, the mater- a
ial things which are of vital in
terest to the masses who have
the taxation for the support of b
the government to bear, will be tj
obscured. Because of this condi
tion there is a growing demand
for more material to select from, I
and it would not surprise us in b
the least did others "tbrow their
hats in the ring" before the time
expires for the filing of pledges.
We have been asked the ques
tion "by what authority,do those
who insist there should be only a
two candidates for governor?"
The office belongs to the masses, t,
and nottoacoterie of newspaper
editors aided and abetted by a tl
few politicians, this being true, h
and the fundamental principle of
the primary system being to give ~
to the voters material to select -
from, it is contended that to close
the door of opportunity against
others who aspire to this highl
position, is not in accordance
with the principles of democracy,
but on the contrary, it is worsen
than the caucus system of tet
convention plan the people re
pudiated in 1890. A precedentc
set this year to permit a few per
sons to dictate the number of d
candidates there shall be for an
office, and too, who those candi
dates shall be, in our judgment,
will be the beginning of the end
of the primary system, and in
the course of a short time place~
the selection of those who are to
serve the State,in the control of d
a few. The tendency on the part
of some is to obtaijn control!
through the elimination of the
masses by requiring restrictions l
in the primary which will insure
this control, and, once the masses
"go to sleep at the switch," their
political rights will be wrecked B
The point we make is that no t
man or set of men have a patentr
right on the privilege of being a t
candidate for the office of gover-a
nior or any other office, therefore, 5
when gentlemen contemplate n
asking the people of the State to
consider claims for their suffrage,
it is the height of arrogance for tC
those interested in the candidacy r
of one who got into the running ti
before the customary time for ti
announcements, to attempt to"
create a feeling of resentment O
against such, and it is our lion
est opinion, the conditions the,
voters will confront this summer
warrant the entrance of men who
are prompted from motives of
patriotism. The question is, will t
other aspirants for governor per
mit themselves to be held otY to'
gratify a sentiment that is not
high,nor is it for the good of the b
State? What does it behoove the h,
masses lif the present gover- ti
nor did offend the former
chief justice, and cause him, to n
give way to passion, and resign
an office which he may have lost
anyway if the governor was re
elected with a legislature of his1
way of thinking? We ask why
should this give Judge Jones the el
sole privilege of opposing Gov-I
ernor Blease? especially,.whenIt
there are thousands who have noIC
admiration for either one.~ We
have information, the source of
which we arc not at liberty to*
disclose, that a gentleman who
is well versed in legislation,
thoroughly identified with the'
commercial and farming inter
ests of the State, always an ac
tive worker in, and for those
things which tend to build up
and make the masses more pros
perous, is now being correspond- e
ed with, and that he is seriously
considering whether or not he.
should make the sacrifice by~ off
ering himself as a candlidate for
this high office; we will sayshoulds
he decide to make the race it will T
be at a great sacrifice of large iJ
business interests, therefore, the f
only motive which could possio-w
ly actuate him would be that of al
patriotism. He would not be a e
candidate seeking revenge, nor ft
one who has enemies to punish al
or friends to reward, but he e<
would be a candidate who would.r
use his utmost ability to bring p

sion of the progressive States of ir

TO WIN CONFIDENCE BE STRAIGHT.
Both Blease and Jones are
galivanting around the coantry
making their friends claim the
earth and all things upon the
earth, uot excepting the support
of Hog-gut Township in Lancas
ter, and Scrawney Neck in Hor
ry, but in the opinion of close
observing patriots, both of these
gentlemen will serve the masses
better by staying away until the
regular campaign meetings open;
as it is, Mr. Jones goes on a bol
a i r excursion, the newspa
pers tell their readers that he
captivated his hearers and the
section through which he travel
led, and several sections besidet
are going to give him their
votes. Governor Blease hits
somewhere else, but the news
papers merely mention that he
was there and have very little
comment to make about the -re.
sult of his visit. The people un
derstand this discrimination and
they judge from this the attitude
of the press towards the man
they are opposing. There are a
few newspapers in this State dis
posed to be fair, these are en
deavoring to give to both Jones
and Blease what is their due.
Should either one of them come
to these parts, which we hope tc
Ibe spared from until they come
to the regular meeting, we shall
treat them with equal fairness.

Relics of the Capet Family. q
The descendants of Edouard Lasne,
who was housekeeper of the Temple
prison when the Capet family were
there, gave to the Carnavalet museum,
in Paris, some of the things which
Louis XVI. and Marie Antoinette left d
in their rooms when they were taken
to the scaffold. There are two chem
ises of fine linen belonging to Marie
Antoinette. The crown which was
embroidered on them has been picked
out, and only the initial "M." remains.
IThere Is a black silk blouse, very
much worn and mended in several
places, which Marie Antoinette made
with her own hands in prison and
which was worn by the princess royal
after her father's elecution. There are
also two pairs of the king's silk stock
i ings (darned rather badly), a pair of
"MINme. Royale's" little slippers, a
crystal bottle which has a few drops
of Marie Antoinette's favorite scent
remaining In it and Louis XVI.'s shav- i
ing dish. But perhaps the most pa
thetic of the relics of the monarchy
which went to pieces on the scaffold
is a game of bricks with which the 3
little dauphin, whose fate has always -
been and always will be a mystery,
used to amuse himself in prison.
Turkish Wom - at the Theater.
A notice which Is to be seen in one
of the theaters of Constantinople ef
fectively solves the problem of people
at the back obtaining a clear view
and is very much more radical than
the polite request made In English
and French theaters that ladles should
not mar the view of the stage with
huge hats. The notice reads: "In order
to render the performance agreeable
to all those present the management
of the theater has decided that the
spectators of the first three rows
should recline, those of the next three
rows be on their knees and all the
others be standing up. In that way
everybody will be able to enjoy the
play." This notice is followed by a
suggestion implying the Turkish wom
an's lack of romance, "It is strictly
forbidden to laugh, for it Is a tragedy
that is being performed."-Le Monde
