' "If there is any one who believes the gold standard is a good thing, or that it must be maintained, I warn him not to cast his vote for me, because I promise him it will not be maintained in this country longer than I amiable to get rid of it." Wiliani Jentohgs Bryan in a Speech at Xnoxville, Tenn., Deliv ered Sept. 16, 1806. dive President McKinley a Re publican Majority in Congress. TAKING THE Republican lo cal ticket In the order that it will appear on the ofliclal ballot, ve purpose today to say a few words about the nominee for congress. "Congressman William Council," re marks the Philadelphia. Press, "has been renominated in Lackawanna by the Republicans. The nomination was made several months ago, and there has never been any charge that it was procured by fraud or the use of any method repugnant to the self-respect eft ' the Republican people and calculated to bring reproach and dis honor upon the party. Haying been fairly nominated by the majority of the Republican voters of the district, and being an undoubted Republican, Mr. Connoll can justly claim the party support. And the party ought to give him ItH united support in order that there may be no uncertainty about the election of a Republican represe tatlve from that district. AVhat every sincere Republican wants, no matter what his factional feeling may be, is a majority in the next house of rep resentatives at "Washington in har mony with the policy nnd purposes of the McKinley administration and the Republican party. The surest way to secure that result is to support the regularly and fairly nominated Repub lican candidates, and Congressman. Connell on this broad ground, If for no other reason, is entitled to united Republican support." Coming from the foremost news paper opponent of the faction in state politics with which Mr "'onnell has been in some measure id ,-d, this has the greater significance. aJut the situation today is far above factional ism. The re-election of President Mc Kinley is believed by few to be in doubt. Not so certain, however, Is the outlook for a Republican majority In congress. To re-elrct McKinley and then by means of a Democratic con gress tie his hands so that none of his policies could be worked out would be as cruel a fate as that of Prometheus' in the old mythology, who was chained to a rod; while his heart was pecked at by vultures. The personal element in the election of a congressman, in n time of special crisis, is not of the foremost import ance. It Is the vote, rather than the man, which is important at Washing ton. Yet Mr, Connell, as a result of two terms of diligent and faithful ser vice, performed in tho same business like and conscientious; manner which hns characterized his labor3 In the piivato relations of life, has grown familiar with tho wuys of doing things, acquainted with the men of influence nnd power, and proficient in thereruiromeiJts of effective represen tation" 'By returning him for u third nnd.hiAt .term the voters of this district wlll-nof only record their support of Kopulfnu national principles but also assure 'themselves of a thorough safe guarding of local interests at tho na tlonaV'c'upltal. The anlvnl In this country of Sexto Lopez, Agulnaldo's private becrotary, on .the 'invitation of Flsko Warren, 'seems tp have brought to light an other nntl-Imperlallst unknown, Mr. Flake Warren will pirate forward his phot6, t ' No doubt It was very wrong for ChaWea T..

Home In vestments .are preferable. But even the hypercritical Mr. Bryan must ad mit nlaf this bold stroke of the Chi cago ,treet railway magnate will con stitute a valuablo advertisement ot American goods and probably be a means flf greatly quickening our grow ing export trade. If that Is so, It will benefit more than VerUes. it wjj make extra worl; In our mills and fac tories, dhburso additional wages among- their employes tlnd In turn in crease) tho trade and piotlts of the initcher, tbe baker and the candlestick maker to the outermost circle of the community. Money for Investment will naturally eccIc the place of great est Inducement; but it tnkes Repub lican administration to keep money from going Into hiding and lints help ing nobody. m For tho Individual coal operators of Noithcastcrn Pennsylvania, pinioned between the United Mine Workers on tho one side and the conl-carrylng rail roads on the other, there Is now but one mentis of business salvation. That Is the prompt completion of an Inde pendent railroad to tidewater, Why Bryan Hopes Not. IN PENNSYLVANIA, Inst 'Year, according to tho bureau of In dustrial statistic?, exactly $73, 179,333 was paid cut In wages to 151,422 persons as against $02,070,615 In 1898, nnd $45,229,067 In 1S94, being an Increase In 1S99 over ISIS of 24.73 per tent, and an Increase ovoi 1892 of 72.83 per cent. The average earnings In these skilled nnd unskilled Industrie! wore $506,27, as against $454.52 for 137, 985 persons In 189S In the same estab lishments, an Increase of $51.75 per nnnum, or 11.3S per .cent. Seventeen thousand five hundred and forty more persons were employed, nnd thesei In creased the production of the previous year $U1,SS0,S81, or 42 per cent. In tho steel Industry those gains were especially noticeable. The Unit ed States for 1899 produced 10,039,857 gross tons and Great Britain 5,000,000 tons of all kinds, or 22.2 per cent, over IMS, and 60 per cent, of the total pro duction of the United States and about 29 per cent, more than Great Britain. While England in five years gained In steel production 53 per cent., the Keystone stnto gained 141 per cent. In pig Iron In 1899, as compared with 189S, the aggregate value Increased $44,872, 573, or 81.1 per cent., and the value per ton over 1S9S was $5.07, or 51 per cent. The average earnings of labor in this industry, skilled and unskilled, were nearly $100 over 1896, and tho average over 189S was $52.S6. The aveiage dally wage was $1.51, an in crease over 1S98 of 19 cents per day. With a gain soon to come to tho workers in our mines, this showing explains why Bryan need expect noth ing fiom Pennsylvania. An independent, mlddlc-of-the-cam-palgn poll of tho United States, made by the New York Herald on the basis of sample polls taken by special cor respondents In every locality, indicates that McKinley has 23S reasonably cer tain electoral votes, that Bryan has 163 and that 21 are doubtful. The Herald concedes Delaware, Illinois, Kansas and Washington to McKinley, allows Colorado, Kentucky, Maryland, Ne braska, and Utah to Bryan and classes Indiana, Idaho and Montana ns doubt ful. According to the Herald, it Is all over save tho shouting. Parallels and Contrasts. THERE ARE some interesting; parallels and some sharp contrasts between the polit ical campaign now in pro gress in Orcat Britain, which has for its objact the election of a now par liament, and the national campaign in our own country for tho election of an executive and a legislature. There is a noticeable parallel in the fact that in each country tho party in power, which has shouldered most Jlfficult responsibilities to the best of its ability, is being attacked with ferocity by the party out of power, and the nature of tho attack is one of fault-finding and savage criticism and not the proposition of a better policy. On the other hand, a contrast Is visible between the results accom plished by the two parties in power the Conservative in England and the Republican in the United States for the reason that McKlnley's adminis tration of the war with Spain Is being condemned for having been too suc cessful while tho complaint uttered against Lord Salisbury's administra tion of tho South African war is that it was Inexcusably faulty and tardy in its achievements. There is a parallel in the fact that both countries entered upon war handicapped by a defective war ma chinery handed down from earlier times, rusty, creaky and Inelastic. There is a contrast In the fact that while the Liberal, or minority party, In England has sense enough to see and patriotism enough to advocate that these defects In the military es tablishment must be remedied at all costs, as a matter affecting the very life of the empire, the Demociatic party In the United States howls until blue In the face over the imaginary dangers of "militarism" and resists nil efforts to reorganize our little regular nrmy so that It will correspond in efficiency of system to tho admitted individual efficiency of Itsulncompar able personnel. Thejo is a parallel In tho fact that In both countries the "outs" will have to stay out, nnd a contrast In the fact that while the English Liberals -have never advocated trailing their coun try's flag in surrender to Kru'ger, tho paramount Issuo brought forward by the agile commander-in-chief of tho American Popocrats Is one of capitu lation to tho cut-throat Tagalog dic tator, Agulnaldo, In defeat Lord Rosobery will remain a flguro of com manding influence and widespread publlo esteem, for he bus been phil osophic, broad-minded, statesmanllko; but when Vll"1"" Jennings Bryan hears on the night of Nov, 6 tho sec ond doom of his Popullstlo and social ists vagaries as registered in a thun derous second rejection of his candi dacy, ho can proceed to Inter his pros pects of acquiring the presidency for tljey will bo extinct buyond the hope of resurrection. Now that Ervlng "Wlnslow has ac quired (ho letter writing habit, Mr. C'arneglq will doubtless remain In Scotland's woods. Captain Dreyfus again shows a dis position to arouse dangerous social and political elements in France by de manding a revision of his case. In view of the ofliclal array agalnit hhn Pieyfus has been fortunate in secur ing his liberty even though no may have been Unjustly Imprisoned. The conditions of Franco at tho present time will not admit of milch agitation such as Dreyfus would provoke. His friends should advice him for a time to let welt enough alone. Free Silver a Crime. (From a Letter by Abram 8. Hewllt.) THE PARTY which call? Itself Democratic Is In reality Popullstlo and based upon doctrines which, If carried into effect, would produce political an archy. We ate compelled by every consideration of honor, of duty and ot interest to repudiate Bryanlstn and all that It represents. You ask whether I believe In tho coinage of silver In the ratio of 16 to t. You might ns well ask m whether I believed that an ounce should bo made to' pass for a pound in the ordinary transactions of com merce. The ratio is n false ratio. Tho valuo of stiver measured by gold Is, as every one knows, not 1G to 1, but 33 to 1. The proposition, therefore, of tho platform is to declare that 50 cents shall by law bo made equal to one dotlnr. This absurd proposition Is based upon tho professed belief that In 1873 when sliver wns demonetized a crime wns committed, by which creditors benefited at the expense of debtors. Tho fact is that sliver was then overvalued, and hence its demon etization was a relief to debtors and of no benefit to creditors. The extra ordinary thing is that the Kansas City platform proposes to commit the very crime which It falsely denounces as having been perpetrated In 1873. It proposes to substitute a fifty-cent dol lar in payment of debts which ought to be discharged with 100 cents to tip dollar. This is robbery and therefore a crime, in which no honest man can liavo any part. I do not see how a Democrat who is true to the interests of Democracy can in the present exigency take any other course than to vote for the Re publican ticket. I propose myself so to vote and I do this because I am a Democrat who fools that Bryanism and all that it stands for is diametri cally opposed to the principles of the Democratic party, as they were enun ciated by Jefferson, and as they have been construed by all the great men who have led tho Democratic party up to the time of the holding of the 'un happy convention of 1896, when the old organization was broken up. "Is It likely that the American peo ple will now bo so unwise, while many of our great problems are still In the course of solution, as to the change of administration; now while we are still occupied in enforcing our rlchts, and doing our duty by the suppression of the revolutionary and turbulent ele ments in tho Philippines; in politically organizing Cuba and Porto Rico; in maintaining our national dignity in China; in protecting the life of our na tional representative there and the lives of our women and children: In entering upon diplomatic discussions of the greatest delicacy and of the utmost nicety? Is it at all likely that tho American people will dispense with the trained services of Mr. McKinley, of Mr. Hay, of Mr. Root, ot Mr. Hitchcock, of Mr. Long, in ex change for a cabinet of Incompetents such as can only be found in the cir cle cf Mr. Bryan's political and ner sona'i advisers currency fanatics, men willing to throw our Supreme court Into the area of politics, Contraction Ists, Populists and Anarchists? Are the people likely to elect to the presi dency of theTTnlted States a man who favors the silver standard because It permits the repudiation of a debt: a man who'contends that the finances of the country are in danger because in addition to having money to lend at low rates at home, we have surplus money to lend In the world's markets?" William M. Ivlns, In the Sun. Mrs. Conger, wite of the American minister at Pekln, Joins her opinion to that of many others to the effect that China is an abused country and that the people would be better off if left alone. It begins to look as though tho missionaries could profit ably employ their present spare time In a little extra work among the for eigner in China. . . . If tho leaders of the Republican party In Lackawanna county, after years of mutual goro-shedding, can all get together and be good, the rank and tllo ought to have little difficulty in composing their differences and in working unitedly for party triumph. Tho only doubtfuln;ss In the politi cal situation in New York state is whether McKlnley's plurality will fall slightly below or go high above tho 100,000 line. Tho Democrats do well to carry In diana five weeks before election. They will stand little 'show of doing this on election day. m REPUBLICAN OBJECT LESSONS. -r f t f New Hampshire. I)aid.3.

In the following unparalleled showing of the increase In the number of deposits from the dark days of the Semocratlo Wilson bill regime in 1804 to tho glorious days of McKinley prosperity, the most marvelous of all is the increase in the number of depositors and in the amount of deposits in the savings banks of the country. where the wage earners of the country put tholr savings.

In 1899 it was 84,608,096,005, showing an increase of almost v one and three-quarter Billions of dollars to the credit of the peo ple who had bank accounts in the five years since the country was suffer ing the agonies of a Democratic administration. Not only has there been this vast increase in the aggregate amount of money placed in the banks, but the average amount of each bank account has increased from 8580, in 1894, to an average of 8602 per bank account in 1899. Who will say that the promises of the Republican party have not been fulfilled P Who will say that the Advance Agent of Prosperity has not visited the American people under the Republican administration of President Mc-KinleyP Wants Sfafe Board of Arbitration John L. Butler In Harrlsburg Patriot. The oluntary trndi; tribunal act passed In the session of 1SS3 should not be confounded with laus enacted in other commonwealths providing for a state board of arbitrators. The act of JISS3, for which Senator Wallace stood sponsor, did not create a permanent board of arbitrators, but pro vided simply for a temporary local board after petition made to the county court. Tho weakness of that act lies in tlds, that there could not be any arbitrators chosen unless both parties, em ployer and employe, petitioned jointly for their appointment. True, cither party by the express terms of the act may petition the court far the appointment of arbitrators, but, by express terms, also, the court is vested with discretionary pow ers. In other words a court of common picas has the power to say that the Interests of tho parties would not bo beneficially affected by the appointment of arbitrators. As a matter of his tory the cmplojcs never succeeded in obtaining the signatures of their cmplojcrs to a joint peti tion for the appointment of a board of arbitra torsand the liw is a dead letter. o As attorney for the labor Interests during the session of 1SS3, I was called in by Senator Wallace to assist him ni the preparation and pissage of the act. It was not intended for anything more that a tentative measure, a feeler, as it were, along the lines of more drastic laws in force on the continent of Europe. In 1886 Massachusetts, New York and Iowa passed laws providing for ar bitration, the two former enacting measures creat ing a permanent state board nnil the latter a measure somewhat like that framed by Senator Wallace. The federal government, for the Dis trict of Columbia, the states o Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, New Jersey, Connecticut, Colorado, Oil! fornia, Kansas, Texas, Missouri, Louisiana, Wis consin, North Dakota, Utah, Minnesota, Michi gan, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming have also enacted measures providing for arbitration of labor disputes sinco Senator Wallace took the initiative in 1833. o Sixteen states now have regularly constituted state boards of arbitration for the settlement of disputes between employers and employes and yet Pennsylvania, the hotbed of strikes and lockouts, the land of coal, Iron, oil, textiles and freight traffic, can boast ot nothing better than a tenta tive measure that was discredited within six months from the day it received tho approval of Governor Pattlson. Of course, the strike In the anthracite region will be a thing of the past before the legislators in 1001 can pass an arbi tration Jaw, but should we not provide for the future? HOW CONSTITUTION FOLLOWS THE FLAG. From a Speech by Senator Bevcrldgc.
