Kaiser; and the second of a Belies of letters upon Historic Quebec, by John E. Richmond, In addition to the accustomed features that alone make it the best Saturday paper printed in Northeastern Pennsyl vania. It would be expedient to order extra copies of thin paper in advance. Democracy Is Not Dead. There is something in the note of warning sounded by the New York cor respondent of the Philadelphia Press with Immediate reference to the munic ipal problem in the metropolis which possesses general Interest and value. After pointing out that the average vote cast at the recent election for the Tammany candidates reached about 105,000, he continues: Therefore it is seen that In spite of the revelations before the Lexow committee, notwithstanding the overwhelming Im pulse in the direction of Republican suc cess, Tammany was able to control 1U5,W0 votes, and In these figures are to be Been the menace which Is constantly before those who have undertaken to establish good government here. If that organiza tion, In the face of emphatic public con demnation and in spite of the mighty In fluences that were making for Repub licanism, is nevertheless able to poll 105,000 votes, or considerably more than onc thlrd of the entire vote polled, then it is not safe to assume that the organization Is gol'ig to be broker, down simply be cause Is has been once defeated. The Re publicans are Inclined to the opinion that they could have elected their candidate without any Democratic help, but on analysis of the official llgures does not justify that claim. Had It been a straight party Issue between the Republicans and the Democrats, the Democracy would have carried this 'city apparently by from between 10,000 and 16,000 votes. In fact a husty generalization permits the state ment that the straight Republican vote ond the straight Tammany vote hero would not, upon comparison, vary in fig ures more than two or three thousand. That would leave some 50,000 voters In tho city who are Independent enough to swing from one party to the other, and these persons have the balance of power. Kor that reason it Is going to require great prudence, a very thorough knowledge of the situation, and good understanding of what public sentiment may sustain, for the Republicans to gain permanent fruits of the victory. In the larger nrena of national poli tics, almost a similar condition prevails. Vie are not of those who believe that an overwhelming number of American cit izens lately voted for Republican candi dates for the single reason that they were Republicans. Neither do we be lleve that the Democratic party has been permanently defeated. Upon straight party lines, which are the lines that the majority of our citizens ob serve unless specially aroused by, a crying necessity for concerted action, the Republican and the Democratic parties are about equal In point of num bers. The people have repudiated Democratic servants whom they deem dishonest, unwise or unfit to govern, and have elected Republican servants believing them to be, In an emergency, safer and abler. But the self-same fact should admonish the latter that they can remain In power only during good behavior. The time has gone by in this country when a controlling element In Its citizenship can long be fooled by partisan names and partisan claims which do not have behind them the collateral of prudent and effective legis lative results. The Tammany vote In New York, like the southern Democratic vote In na tional politics, Is the foundation stone upon which Democratic ambition will build a new structure that will yet be crowned by the capstone of political success unless Republicanism, as re flected by Us leadership, shall be saga clous, circumspect and faithful to Its trust. The Washington correspondent of the Louisville Courier-Journal telegraphs to his paper that "whencongress meets next month Chairman Wilson, of the ways and means committee, will report a series of amendments to the new ' tariff law that will have for their ob ject a reduction of tariff duties on a number of articles contained in the va rious schedules. These amendments will have the support of the president, and will be In liiarwlth the Chicago plat form. They will be put' through the house under suspension of rules, as it will be the purpose of the majority to 'make the most of the short session Every possible Influence will be brought to bear on the senate to act on the house h"i-" It prohAhb. that this correspondent Is mistaken; and that the burned children of the expiring con gress will dread the tnrlff-tlnkering fire even more than they will droad the currency blunders of the experiment alist in the white house. Hut In either or any event, the tariff-smashing pro gramme Is certain to come to grief ns long as Mathew Stanley Quay, in the senate, Is physically able to keep up his "few remarks." Alas, poor Joseph! He was, Indeed, u, fellow of Infinite jest and gall. The suggestion that C. Fred Wright be nominated in" the' Fifteenth district to fill out his brother's unexpired term, and that afterward Wayne county be promised Susquehanna's support, seems,, upon Its face, fair and reason able. It Is well known that Fred Wright could more satisfactorily than any other man take up the cares of the congressional representation where his brother dropped them, because ho is more familiar with the exact status of his brother's relinquished work. Scranton, It seems, has two revenue collectors. The other Is Sam Hudson. An Unaccountable Attack. We have waited with some curiosity to see an explanation of the singularly sudden and ferocious attack mude In the' Rochester cathedral last Sunday by Bishop McQunld upon Archbishop Ire land. None has yet come. In that sermon the- bishop, after confessing that he, personally, had not voted for twenty-seven .yearsan example of In different citizenship hardly to be rec ommended for general Imitation charged viciously Into the St. Paul pre late for his "undignified, disgraceful and scandulous" Interference In tho New York campaign. For upward of twenty minutes, the Rochester bishop delivered extraordinary Invective at John Ireland's expense, concluding finally- with the expressed hope that this scandal" would yet receive "pub lic rebuke." The Rochester Post-Express, whose editor Is a distinguished Catholic, com menting upon this singular sermon, ad mits that the thesis of it which is to say that Catholic bishops and priests should keep out of active party politics Is sound. Yet It "fulls tu see that there Is Justification for the attack In the action for which Archbishop Ire land Is specifically censured. Bishop McQuald denounces him for taking part In a political canvass In New York, on the theory that he has no business In the province of Archbishop Corrigan. Hut If Archbishop Ireland had a right to talk politics at all, he had as much right to talk politics in New York as in St. Paul, though he has no ecclesias tical Jurisdiction here. Was It wise on his part to talk politics at ull? Under the circumstances we think It was." In support of this belief the Post Express recalls how the Democratic state convention, by rushing through an antl-A. P. A. plank, had sought to convey the Impression that Republi canism, In its union with the cause of municipal reform, was somehow hostile to the Catholic faith. It adds: An attempt had been mude to bring the question of religion Into our state can vass. A leudlng priest In HufTulo had de clared that all Catholic Republicans should vote the Democratic ticket; priests In New York had said the sume thing In their pulpits; a priest In Rochester who was a Republican had announced openly his defection from his party on religious considerations and tho Democratic candi date had laid great stress on the relig ious issue Involved. A general Impression was growing that in some mysterious way the Catholic church wa throwing Its intliience for the Democratic party. The fuct would have been a great mis fortune to the country, to the Democracv, and to all religion, nnd the illusion would be only less evil than the fact. It was at this juncture that Archbishop Ireland stepped forward, repudiated the notion that there wus a religious issue in the canvass, declured that the Catholic church should be In no way Identified with any party, und advised every Catholic citizen to vote on honest political con viction. He . urged this as a matter of policy no less than principle. There never was an occuslon when It wus u plainer duty on the part of some Catholic prelate to net forth the doctrine than that on which Archbishop Ireland spoke. The substance of all Archbishop Ire land's utterances during the New York campaign may be expressed In ihe fol lowing portion of his letter to the New York World, published Just before elec tion: Catholics say they deprecate sectarian Ism In social and political uffairs. Let them not give themselves the example of It or permit others to make of It an issue In the mime of Catholics. The church In the eyes of Catholics should be so high, so sublime, as to be above ull party poll tics, truly universal and American in her breadth of mini), and embrace of love. I would not have her exclusively Republi can. I would not have her exclusively Democratic. I have no mission to give Catholics political counsel.. In politics priests and laymen stand on the came ground as citizens and they vote ns tho Judgment of each ono dictates. I can only bid them vote with Intelligence, sincerity, honesty, und fearlessness voting the Democratic ticket, If they deem It the bet ter one for the country, or the Republican ticket, if this seems the better. But I can counsel them, as I do, to allow no cry of religious bigotry to sway them, to bo moved by no sectionul hatred, to give credence to no vain rumors nnd accusa tions. If there are. men who drag re ligion Into politics, let it not be the Cath olics, who even under penalty of some sacrifice-must give to tho country tho highest example of exalted citizenship, and of politics utterly free from reli gious bias. The peace and prosperity of America demands this of all her citizens. I repeat, there Is no religions Question In American politics today, and a mention of one should not be heeded or tolerated. We must confess we share the Post Express' surprise at discovering that there Is 'anything "undignified," "dis graceful" or "scandalous" In such an utterance as this; anything offensive to fair play or dangerous to good citizen ship. In our view. It looks like the advice of a genuine patriot, and we do not perceive that it Is susceptible of so much as one Iota of. Improvement. Furthermore, we do not believe, from what we know of the Catholics of this vicinity, that they will regard Arch bishop Ireland's course as derogatory to the fame or glory of their church. Upon Unreverse, It will., we dare say, grieve them exceedingly to find Bishop M'Qfuald talking In a strain bo Irrecon cilable with the known facts. There are exceptions, of course, to every rule; but It Is still the rale that election contests don't pay. It Is asserted In a WIlkes-Barre dis patch that Representative Harvey, of the Second Luzerne district Is opposed to the Quay county movement. We question the truth of this assertion. Mr. Harvey has said that he would vote In accordance with the wishes of his constituents; and It Is our belief that a majority of those constituents favor di vision. The Democratic Philadelphia Times has a thorough, right to tell Governor eKct Hastings whom not to appoint to office; and Governor-elect Hastings, by the same token, should quickly appoint that very fellow. Now that he's as good as elected speuker, Harry Walton need not be surprised at his wonderful popularity on the floor of the house. The recent Intimation that Western Pennsylvania would, be "next" has at tracted a large array of Republican tal ent to the pie counter. They might at least let General Hast ings get settled comfortably In the gubernatorial chair before hurling him into the hypothetical. If we were disposed to make-a guess ns to the next mayor of Philadelphia wo should say that his name, would be Boles Penrose. CHATS HY THE WAY. The reminiscences of congressional cam paigns in the Fifteenth district call to mind vividly one of the Instances of the visitations of political lightning as Illus trated In the ense of Congressman Georso A. Post, who represented the district In the Forty-eighth congress. Young Post, who had previously been employed as a clerk In tho Erie offices at Susquehanna, hud been admitted to the county bar, and hud decided to go west and practice law. In order to get un advertisement for himself in the far west he sought the complimentary nomination for congress on the Democratic ticket. As there wus apparently not a ray of hope for the elec tion of any Democrat at that time the party good-naturedly allowed the boy to curry off the empty honor of a nomina tion. Post entered the campaign pre pared to immortalize himself as a stump speuker in any event. Suddenly there was a disturbance In the Republican camp. Colonel Overton wus nominated by the regular conferrees. C. C. Jiiihvln bolted, and as an Independent candidate carried the solid Republican vote of Wayne, while Overton held the Bradford vote. Susquehanna and Wy oming scattered and as a result Mr. Post secured the prize. Prominent Democrats of tho Fifteenth district who ullowed the plum to slip through their fingers by this relaxation of vigilance have been kicking themselves since for the lost op portunity that Is not liable to come again during the present century. Mr. Post was the youngest member of congress, and was quite popular with the members of the Korty-elghlh . body. Hut he was promptly turned down at the next election when the waning Republican leaders had regained their senses and a Republican was sent to represent the district. Mr. Post entered Journalism; was for a time editor of the Jlontrose Democrat and wus afterward connected with the New York World. At present he Is secretary and treasurer of a mining company, and, like Democracy In general, has nothing to ex pect from the Fifteenth district. The good government leagues appear to be making rapid strides In this as well as in other sections of the country. Mem bers of the organizations are straining ev ery nerve to promote a spirit of Interest In politics that will call the best citizens to caucusses and invoke the aid of the cluss of citizens who usually shun vot ing places at all times. The explosion of the peanut ronster en gine at the corner of Lackawanna and Wyoming avenues yesterday afternoon will probably have an effect In assisting toward ubatlng the sidewalk mercantile nuisance. The corner fruit stand has long been un eye-sore In Scranton and when It Is loaded with explosives, it would seem about time that some steps were taken to curb the dangerous enter prise. Even In case there Is no ordinance by which the curb-stone merchant can be reached, there is no question that the steum engine peanut features will be come unpopular with the people who rent ten-foot reservation privileges to tho street vendors. Tho presence of the little machine which Is liable tb perform the dynamite bomb act almost liny time Is not likely to attract many customers to the vicinity In which It Is situated. Wllkes-Hnrre's bou'rd'of trade Is boom ing these days under the direction of Sec tary Ed A. Nlven, the well known jour nalist. Mr. Nlven has recently been doing lively hustling In the Interest of the board, and his familiarity with newspaper work enables him to attend to the most essen tial iletulls with ease and dispatch. It is undoubtedly true that a practical newspa per man has the advantage In work of this kind. The Scranton board of trnde made ts first rapid progress during the years that tho office of secretary was filled by J. Harry Fisher, who graduated to the po sition from the city editor's chair on tho Republican. Previous to Mr. Fisher's ad ministration the board hail been un ex ceedingly quiet und conservative organiz ation, but under his active management the membership was doubled and a spirit of Interest wus worked up that haH borne good fruit In the establishment of many substantial enterprises. While good work has been accomplished by the secretaries who have followed Mr. Fisher, It must be admitted that It was a newspaper mun that first started tho bull. POLITICAL POINTS. Judge Kirkputrlck will not contest Hart's election. Ex-Treasurer Morrison Is slated, for su perintendent of banking, Factory Inspector Watchorn Is a candi date for reappointment. Charley Voorhees will bo cared for In tho Philadelphia city building. The Miners' Journal nominates General J. K. Slgfrled, of Pottsville, for fuctory Inspector. Senator Quuy says only tho free-alco-hol-uscd-ln-the-arts pop gun bill will pass the senate. The senate compromisers'" say they will not permit uny tariff or flnuhclal legisla tion at tho coming session of congress. Captain Clark, of New Castle, Lawrence county, will be chief of the bureau of in dustrial statistics under General Latta, Senator Porter and Mayor Stuart favor Director Wlndrlm for mayor of Phllur delphla; but tho odds still point to Pen rose, The kid-gloved element of Philadel phia's municipal league may announce an independent Republican mayoralty candi date. Twenty congressmen have announced that they will not attend the short ses sion of congress, and their mileage allow ance has been refused. Jere B. Rex will be resident clerk be yond doubt. The fight between . Fleltii and Randolph for Journal clerk will be de cided strictly upon its merits. Ex-Lieutenant Governor Davlcs, of To wandu, has entered 'tho field as a candi date for tho vacant opngresslonal nom ination in the Fifteenth district. . Ex-Congressmun Jadwin, of Wayno, Is reported os non-committal in the matter of the Wright succession; while County Chulrnian Wood and Homer Greene are avowed candidates. The claim upon which Judge Sltlscr, of Wyoming county, will contest is that In several Wyoming county districts 81 bal lots were cast for him that were not counted. The voters were Republicans and put a cross In the circle at tho top of the Republican ticket and another cross opposite the name of Judge. Hittser In the Democratlu ticket. The election officers, It Is said, ignored the Slttser cross an 1 couiUed these votes for the full Repub lican ticket, Dunham included. If these votes are thus counted Slttser Is elected by 62 majority over Dunham, This will be the only point to be decided In the contest. THANKSGIVING HYMN.
