An Epidemic of Political Ills.
There is no abatement in Mr. Bryan's
condition. His diarrhea of words hav
ing resisted the efforts of Dr. Haskell and
his Standard Oil cures. Dr. Kidder has
been substituted who will try a wood
pulp diet and other free trade remedies.
Congressman Kipp has a very serious
attack of Cirrhosis of the Conscience
caused by an abnormal enlargement of
the gall bladder which was superinduc
ed by a.too strenuous use of the tear'
ducts while emphasizing his tales of how
he labored to get pensions for the wid
ows and orphans.
Bryan's campaign managers in the
West and the New York World in the
East have a bad attack of Locomotor
Ataxia and all hands are wobbling bad

Spleen and an eminent authority on
poisonouB literature has read several let

ly that tho germ, Taintcdmoneyitis is
not dangerous if it does its work under

exhilerating, but if the victim attempts
to climb the gilded stairs of political
ambition where lie may encounter the
glare of publicity,he develops a rash that
compels him to hasten into obscurity
where he can be heard and not seen
while meditating upon the rashness of
Two recent cases one in Ohio and one

Admitting every charge made by the
Democratic party against the Repub
lican administration since 1860 to be
true ; reduce thesejeharges of misgovern
ment, extravagance, fraud, robbery,
etc., to figures showing just what they
claim the country has lost in dollars
and cents ; add this enormous sum to the
actual value that the Democraticparty
has been when in power and when not
in power o this add the estimated, value
of the 57 varieties of promises that Bry
an uses to catch votes ; subtract the
sum total obtained by this combination
of results from the increased valuation
of tls commercial worth and greatness
of the United States since Republican
statesmen have had control, and you will
have a balance in our country's favor

the last Democratic board of Commis

The question whether the anthracite
coal roads may transport their own coal
to market, in competition with the coal
of independent operators transported
over their roads, is to be determined by
the U. S. Supreme Court. An appeal
by the government from tho recent de
cision.of, tho Circuit Court of Appeals, in
lavor of the coal roads, has been allowed,
and counsel for both parties have agreed
to petition the Supreme Court to advance
the case, and give it precedence, owing
to iu great importance.

Both parties have pledged themselves
to a Revision of the Tariff. The Repub
lican party stands for protection to home
industries and opposes any reduction in
the tariff that will compel American
manufacturers to bring the wages of
their 'employees down to the level of
foreign labor, while the Democratic
party is using Tariff Revision as a mask
for their Free Trade policies.
Cut glass is one of the articles that the
Democratic party believe should be free,
giving as their reason that it will effect
only a few small localities. Wayne coun
is one of these localities.
Mr. Kipp's election will mean, that
we welcome this calamity, while a vote
for C. C. Pratt will be notice to the next
Congress to let the tariff on cut glass
WALLACE J. BARNES
In selecting Wallace J. Barnes as its
candidate for Prothonotary the late Re
publican Convention acted wisely and
well. Mr. Barnes is a self-made man,
'who, born in Wayne county, has grown
up to be one of its most substantial and
respected citizens, having established
and for years successfully conducted a
large lumber trade at Beach Lake, in
Berlin township. Being thoroughly
equipped for the position by a liberal
education, which includes exceptionally
uniform and legible penmanship, the
election of Mr. Barnes will insure a cor
rect and satisfactory discharge of the
duties of the Prothonotary 'sollice, while
his courteous manner and accommodat.
ing disposition cannot fail to make him
popular with all who may have business
in his department. Having always been
an active and influential Republican, he
deserves and doubtless will receive the
best efforts of his party for his election,
while his personal popularity will at
tract to him the votes of many friends
of opposite political faith.

For District Attorney
Mr. .Simons comes of the pioneer stock
that developed the southern part of our
county, his father, .lohu Simons, being
among the early settlers. He was horn
in Sterling, May 11, I Still. Din ing his
youth he shared in the labors of the farm,
and attended the winter terms of the dis
trict schools. Later, he passed two years
at the Itloomshurg Normal School, and
graduated with honor from that institu
tion. Aftcrspcnding some time in teach
ing, as principal of the graded schools of
Plymouth, Luxerne Co., and Nicholson,
Wyoming Co., he in 1SS2 began the study
of law in Montrose, and in 1SSI was ad
mitted to the bar of that county. He
soon afterward returned to Wayne, and
in 1885 was appointed Commissioners'
Clerk, which position he held for sixyears.
Meantimehe was admitted to the Wayne
county bar, and in 1891 began the regu
lar practice of the profession in Hones
dale. In this he has achieved a high de
gree of success, and is known as a careful
and trustworthy practitioner, familiar
with legal principles, and ready in their
application to the varied aspects of litiga
tion ; showing accuracy and research both
in the preparation of cases for the courts,
and the conduct of the frequently more
complicated affairs embraced in ollice
business. In argument he is earnest, and
logical, and makes a most favorable im
pression on court and jury. With a pro
fessional study and experience tif more
than a quarter of a century, he may be
depended on to perform the duties of
District Attomev faithfully and success
fully. South Canaan.
Ootohek 8th. The Wayne County
Fair for ltKIS is one of the things that is
past. Financially it was a success, es
pecially for the gang of light-lingered
fellows who went through the pockets
of the honest farmers who came in from
the rural districts to attend the fair.
They paid no respect to persons, rich or
poor, but the meanest and most con
temptible thing they did was to go
through the pockets of an editor, and
should the sharpers be caught they will
get a dose of Wayne county medicine
that will prevent them from committing
any further depredations hereabouts for
Ill speaking of the fair we might say
that the attendance was large, but the
display of farm products was not n, to
the standard. Everything in the Ftock
line was inferior, and if the farmers of
Wayne county can not produce better
cattle, horses, hogs and sheep than were
on exhibition they had better keep their
stock at home. The display of machin
ery by Murray A Co., was first class, and
the linn is deserving of credit for ex
hibiting such a fine lot of farming im
plements. , It may not be the fault of the farmers
in not producing a better grade of stock
and farm produce, but. the mistake of
the fair managers in not offering larger
premiums, so as to induce fanners to
take more interest in the raising of live
stock and crops.
The principal feature of the fair ap
pears to be horse-racing, merry-go-rounds
and side attractions that do nut
appeal to the, majority of the farmers of
The most notable attraction to be seen
upon entering the fair ground was a
large banner displayed over the entrance
of the fruit department, which read,
"Vote for Lee Brauiau for' Sheriff,"
Now, that appears to be the sentiment
of the Republicansof this township, and
also throughout the county, for the reas
on that he is competent, well fitted for
that ollice, and a man who pays one
hundred cents on the dollar, while in all
his dealings he has the reputation of
being a fair, square business man and a
man of excellent habits. The voters of
. Wayne county will make no mistake
when they go to the polls and vote for
Lee (Iranian to be (lie next Sheriff of
