There is every indication that H.
C. Jackson, the Republican candidate

big majority In Wayne county. If

PRATT for Congress, a man who
has always voted for Protection to
worklngmeii and farmers, then to
vote for George W. Kipp who al
ways follows the lead of his party
which is opposed to a tariff that will
shut out Chinese and Japanese labor.
The outlook In tkiscongresslonal
district looks -as if C. C: Piatt will be
returned by a larger majority than
he obtained in 1908. Careful can
vass in Bradford county shows a
sure majority of not less than 1900,
while Susquehanna will have at
least 1300, Wyoming 100 and Wayne
about 250 making a total of over
3,500. Pratt's clean record as a

Election day Is only four weeks
away and there is but little of the
hustle and bustle of years gone by.
The day for big parades and big meet
ings Is a thing of the past. There
Is no question as to the result of the
Stato electlbn; it is only a question
how large Tener's majority will be.
Grim and Berry are deluding them
selves by claiming all sorts of vic
tories, but tho only question unset
tled Is who will keep out of the last
hole. Larkin, the Prohibition can
didate, claims ho will bo second best
man when the race Is over.
Abraham Lincoln had a wonder
ful facility of putting facts Into
words that strike home llko blows
of a hammer. Ho onco said:
"I do not know much about the
tariff, but I do know this much, when
wo buy manufactured goods abroad
wo get the goods and the foreigner
gets tho money. When wo buy tho
manufactured goods at homo, we
get both the goods and tho money."
And any community which de
pends for its commercial welfare up
on the wages of Its worklngmen, who
are In need of protection from cheap
foreign labor, Is loud In Its demands
for a protective schedule. Hones
dalo and neighboring Wayne county
industrial towns should bo almost
a unit In voting for Pratt for Con
gress and Jackson for Representative
for both of these men stand for pro
tection to worklngmen and farmers.
GRIM VJ3USUS IltiltltY.
New Castle, Oct. 10. Last night,
for the first tlmo In tho campaign,
Senator Grim spo'ko of his moral
right to tho Democratic nomination
Ho told how ho had worked hand
In hand with William H. Berry in
an effort to defeat tho selection of
Munson delogntoB to that convention;
how ho and Mr. Berry had counted
nosos on tho night before tho Mun
son withdrawal and had found that
thoy had enough delegates between
thorn to almost certainly prevent
tho nomination of Mr. Munson; how,
nfter his nomination. Mr. Berry had
como to him and congratulated him
upon his nomination and had pledg
ed him his support; how ten days
later ho had again declared ms in
tentlon to abide by tho will of tho
convention and support Its nominee, 1
In spite of tho fact that nil the clr-j
cumstanccs wore known to him.
Mr. Grim again oeked his oppon
ents, who are spreading Insinuations
against his private and public char
acter and Impugning his mutlvos, to
present some evidence to support
their clnlms or to do him the Justice
of withdrawing from the Hold, to
InBuro tho triumph of tho ruform
forces In this stntc. Ho pointed to
lils private nnd public record, and
challenged nny man to point to a
single act of his, either in tho son
ato or out of It, which wns not In
active and open opposition to the
Penrose machine and Its branches.
THNHU AND LAllOU UNIONS.
In a speech ninde at Sharon, Pa.,
John K. Tenor put to rout rumors
that had been circulated In tho in
dustrial sections misrepresenting his
attitude toward organized labor.
Ho not only branded as falso the
allegations thnt ho forbado men cm
ployed by him to join unions but
went Into details on tho subject.
He spoko as follows:
A report has gained circulation
that I was opposed to tho motormen
and conductors of a traction com-
pnny in Charlerol, of which I am an
officer, Joining a union. This report
Is absolutely false. The fact Is these
men do belong to n union nnd so
far as I am concerned will nover bo
interfered with. I am not nn em
ployer of labor, but when I was and
operated a class factory In Buck-
hannon, W. Va., only union work
men were employed.
1 am In favor of organization and
realize that little can be accom
plished in a religious, soclnl or In
dustrial way without it, but I hold
that no man who gives permanent
employment to labor is a greater
benefnetor of his follow men than
he who gives money for temporary
Hence in my opinion every union
man should consider his employers'
interests when he seeks, through or
ganization to advance his own wel
fare and that of his union. Unde
sirable citizens and those who use
their members for commercial pur
poses and to tear down, should not
be permitted to associate with the
right thinking, and right living work'
men, than whom there Is no better
ORIENTAL COMPETITION A MEN"

Why worklngmen and farmers
should -vote for Pratt and Jackson
who stand for Protection.
The rapid development of the
manufacturing industries of Japan
has greatly disconcerted Western
nations. When the latter forced
the subjects of tho Milado to enter
Into trading relations with the out
side world it was generally assumed
that the Japanese were an incapable
people who would remain dependent
for an Indefinite period upon West
ern manufacturers for their pro
ducts. A comparatively few years has
sufficed to completely change this
erroneous estimate of the Japanese.
It Is now generally conceded that
they can turn their h'anjd to' almost
any pursuit and achieve' success.
There is no longer any disposition
to assume that they are merely Imi
tative, for It is seen that with their
acquired knowledge they are rapidly
becoming Inventive as well as adap
tive, and that they have other quali
ties which make them formidable
competitors in lines of manufactur
ing which Westerners had no expec
tation of their entering into.
But now comes another competi
tor on the scene. The Chinese,
whose stores of Iron ore and excel
lent coal are reputed to be enorm
ous, have commenced to exploit
them. Cargoes of coal and pig iron
have recently been received from
China, and thoso who have imported
them predict that in a very short
time great quantities will be ship
ped to California and the other Pa
cific coast states.
It is not probable, however, that
tho Chinese will content themselves
with shipping to us their raw pro
ducts. They are a very apt people.
is we know from observation and
experience, and now that they have
got rid of their conservatism, wo
may expect them to make tho best
possible use of their varied advan
Foremost among these must be
reckoned an Immense body of cheap
labor which can easily bo converted
into that of the skilled sort. It is
idle to supposo that capital will fall
to avail Itself of this possibility. It
has already done so to some extent
In cotton manufacturing lines nnd
it is inevitable that it will enter the
For some time to come, as in our
own country, progress will bo slow.
At first tho coarser products will be
turned out, but sooner or later tho
Chinese will engage in every branch
of manufacturing In which iron is
used, and they will succeed as they
did In this city when they made the
shoo industry their own and practi
cally held tho market until the oper
ation of tho exclusion act hampered
them In their ability to secure cheap
It Is an Interesting situation that
will bo created by tho now develop
ment. Hitherto tho white peoplo
of tho Pacific coast have been suf
ferers from Chinese immigration, and
when tho demand for exclusion was
made It met with llttlo sympathy at
tho East and tho relief wo asked
was grudgingly extended.
Tho now Invasion, If wo may call
It by that name, Is of a different
sort. Tho manufacturing Industries
of tho Pncllle coast have been back'
ward in development, nnd wt are
still largely dependent on tho East
for our supplies of manufactured ar
tides. This is particularly truo of
manufactures of Iron and textiles,
in which our advances havo bcon
If tho expectations of thoso who
aro now obsorvlng tho now develop
ment of China aro realized; If that
country makes half tho progress pro

manufactured articles of .Iron and
cotton goods will bo entering our
markots and shutting out thoso
from tho East; and perhaps tho In
vasion will make hopeless tho at
tempt to build up a Pacific coast In
In that event It Is not unlikely I
thnt tho East will assume a differ
out attitude on tho subject of cheap
Chinese labor from that formerly
taken. It may even find occasion
to strengthen rather than relax its
views on the subject of Protection

The next congress will have some
work cut out for It, In order to pro
vide better tariff protection for our
cut glass manufacturers and work
men. This will bo a very important
and a vital subject to every work
man In the cut glass industry. Japan
has gono Into the cut glnss business
In earnest nnd while It will be a year
or more before we shnll have to meet
their competition yet It Is bound to
come. Tho history of tho Introduc
tion of this Industry In the cast is of
very recent date. A ew Jnpaucsc
icarueu mo arc oi mowing una cut
ting hero In America nnd now, back
ed by a number of capitalists In their
own country, havo opened up a school
of Instruction which consists of a
regularly nppolnted factory which
now employs nearly 300 expert hands
nnd about tho same number who are
learning tho trade. These experts
aro turning out some beautiful spec
linens of ware. A letter from an
American in Tokio who Is Interested
In nnother Industry sends us the
following Information In regard to
the progress of this work. Ho
"It Is wonderful to witness the
deftness of these peoplo In handling
glass and the great results they get
In this new Industry. They not only
copy the designs of our American
manufacturers readily, but they have
a lino of designs of their own which
although fantastic, are beautiful to
look at, and one wonders how they
manage to get such wonderful and
artistic results. American cutting
seems to be confined to straight lines
and curves with a largo radius, but
these Japs cut circles, twisted lines
and all sorts of shapes. One design
which was cut on a largo bowl repre
sents the draping and folds of a cur
tain which Is hung In festoons to the
upper edge of tho bowl. Every fold
Is perfectly and gracefully delineated
the texture of the silk can be dls
cerncd in faint and exquisite lines
while tho patterns of the material
are clearly outlined in tho cutting
No written dlscription could do jus
tice to this one particular piece of
work. It must be seen to be ap
predated. I have seen any quantl
ty of cut glass but never anything
to equal this in beauty and In work
manshlp. An inquiry as to the labor
cost of their work brought an an
swer that was a revelation. A bowl
cut after an American pattern and
which I know would cost ?5 for labor
alone In America, cost $2.10 of Jap
anese labor and this included the
labor of packing ready for shipment,
They have adopted our method o
cutting to a great extent, but have
a number of Ingenious devices that
enable them to do work which as yet
we have not done. One of tho. mills
they use resembles a drill wlth.w.hich
thoy cut very line lines nnd fancy
figures. This is not an engraver
tool, but one that cuts the glass
deeply and does it rapidly. Thel
shop or instruction room is the only
room I was asked to enter. It was
a model of neatness and quietness
every person seemed to be a mute,
but my short Inspection kept me In
wonderland as I noted tho quickness
and deftness with which they handled
the ware. Their glass Is clear as a
crystal, and not very brittle. I was
surprised to see the superintendent
take a bowl which was partly finish
ed and drop It on tho lloor. Ho wns
a short man but the distance the
bowl fell was at least three feet. Af
ter dropping it he rolled the bowl on
its edge a distance of at least twen
ty feet on the board floor. He then
placed tho bowl on a bench and
swung over It a large glass about 12
Inches In diameter which had good
magnifying qualities and requested
me to see if I could discover any
cracks or damage dono to the bowl
but not a crack, nor could I see any
chipped points on it. There were llvo
of these magnifying glasses on this
bench and every pioce of glass when
finished is examined under one o
them. After carefully examining tho
bowl the Jap smiled nnd said you
cannot do that with American glass
This concern will employ 1000 ex
pcrienced glass cutters before 191
closes and they claim that their la
bor cost will be greatly reduced when
they have a full complement of men
who have a longer experience. Af
ter my visit to the factory, while de
scribing my trip to a member of tho
German EmbaBsy, ho told mo that
this concern had mado a largo punch
bowl and set of goblets which had
been sent to the Emperor William
Tho bowl was a combination of cu
and engraved work and tho design
