a big foreign demand for our surplus

will be. Stocks aro advancing; capital

520,000 was to have been taken from
the money paid in by the other mem

who were to be paid were the organ

PHILADELPHIA PAPERS ON
THE COURT CANDIDATES.

A Lengthy Editorial in tho "Tltnoa"
Commending Judge Qroon for
Absolute Integrity and
From tho Philadelphia Times.
When Judges Pershing and Bechtel
woro candidates for ra-olectlnn In Schuyl
kill county, The 7Yi&j earnostlysupportod
thim becauso they had madooxoTipiary ju
dicial records and wore ontitlod to tho con
fidence of tho publio without rogard to pol
itic). Tho Pottsvillo Chronicle then heart
ily co-oporatod with Tha Times in support
ing them,not bocauso thoy were Democrats,
but bocauso thoy woro thoroughly com
petent and faithful Judges. It demanded
their ro-elcction on the ground that a com
petent Judgo was entitled to tho support of
all good citizens, regardloss of party, but
now that tho Republican member of tho
Schuylkill Court, Judgo Greon, is a candi
date for ro-election, tho Chronicle falls
back into tho old pirty organ rut, and do
mands that Judge Greon shall bo defeated
becauso ho 13 not a Democrat, and it heads
Its criticism of The Times with the oxpros
slvo title of "Non-Partisan Bosh." It con
fesses that it has no reason whatever for
opposing tho re-election of Jud?o Green
excepting that he is a Republican in faith, as
tbo following extract from its loading edi
torial on tho subject clearly shows:
Judgo Groen was forced upou this county
originally as a Republican partisan, lie
has nover bon anything obo. Ho is a rtal
wart. Thero Is no mugwumpism about
him. H is a Republican 3C5 day in tho
year. Ilr do not mean to infer that he is
ever biased in his decisions by thepolitics of
litigants contending bejore him. We do not
think he ever has been in the slightest de
gree. Wo do not baliovo that tho matter of
politics ovor Intruded Heolf into thn do
cislonsnf either Julges Pershing or Bech
tol. Wo sav it without fear that politics
would not have tho slightest influenco upon
Tho Chronicle confesses that The Times
h ontiraly corroct in assuming that Judge
Green has administered his judicial office
with absolute intogrity and fidelity. It
distinctly declare.? that ho has never boon
biased in bis decisions by tho politics of
litigants contending beforo him." Appar
rntly to emphasize its confidence In Judge
Green's integrity, It adds that he has never
been in tho "sllghtost dogroo" improperly
influenced in tho dischargo of his official
duties; but becauso Mr. Wadlingor, the
Democratic candidate, would be equally
free from partisan bias if elected to tbo
bench, it Insists that politics and politics
ulono should dominate tho oloction, and
that a thoroughly oompotont and upright
Judge, who has Riven twenty years of ex
cellent servico to tho cause of justice,
should bo defeated solely because he
ordinarily happens to voto a difierent
ticket. This would simply bo making tho
judicial system in Pennsylvania the merest
plaything of potty politics and tho prey of
mean ambition. It would proclaim that
political success must be paramount to tho
administration of justico, and that no mat
ter bow faithful or how well qualified a
Judge may be, or how he has devoted his
lifo to tho impartial enforcement of law be
tween man and man, ho must be woighed
and tested -ololy by his political faith.
The Times begs to remind not only the
Chronicle, but all tho people of Schuylkill
county, that thoy have groat need of a com
petent and stubbornly-honest judiciary.
Thoy have had lino upon lino and precopt
upon precopt on this Important point.
Their Judges have been tested as severely
as any Judges In Pennsylvania, nnd It Is
especially creditable to tho Schuylkill
bench that thoy havo never faltered In tho
faithful discharge of their duty, uvea when
it required heroic measure!, These Judges
aro not meroly ordina-y publio officials
They can recognize no political or personal
obligation unless at the cost of their official
fldo ity. Thoy nro cbargod with tho single
and exceptionally sacred duty of holding
tho scales of justico Impartially between all
litigants and between tho law and thoso ar
raigned for crime. All other publioofllolals
may havo more or loss personal or political
obligations and diichargo them without In
jury to tho publio welfare. It Is tho com-
mon law of our political system that all
officials, with tho singlo excoption of
Judges, may dispense their favors decently
In the Una of party politics! but a Judge
who swerves so much as a hair's bradth in
obedience to political obligations, dishonors
his high ofllco, disgraces himself and must
wound Justice in her own sanctuary.
The Times does not considor Judge
Green or Mr. Wadlingor as Individuals.
It has no reason to criticise tbo want of
character or fitness of tho Democratic can
didate for Judge In SchuylkJJl county, for
the reason that It has no knowledge that ho
is WBntlng In any of tho attributos essential

Judge Groen has boen conspicuously hon
