Republicans Preparing For Aggres
Blve Movement All Along Line.
THE IJ0T Or ORATORS MADE UP
Chairman Penrose and Secretary An
drews Hav the Plan of Campaign
Well Defined and Predict Dig
Philadelphia, Aug. 23. The Republi
can campaign in Pennsylvania hiiR bnn
formally opened, and it is predicted
that the Keystone state will, when the
votes shall bo counted In November,
continue to lead the column of Repub
lican states of the union by the sizo of
her Republican majority.
Work at headquarters of the Repub
lican state committee in this city lias
been under way for a week, and very
satisfactory progress has been male.
In the absence of Senator Boles Pen
rose, the chairman, Colonel Wesley K.
Andrews, secretary of the stnte com
mittee, has been in charge, and he ex
pects to have all the preliminaries of
the cauvass disposed of before tho
rhalrman shall return. There has bocu
a vast amount of correspondence al
ready with the chairmen of ths county
committees and other active Republi
cans throughout the f tate, nnd reports
received from various quarters indicato
that tho Republicans of this stnM are
taking a very lively interest In the
coming election, and that they will
continue to do so until the polls aro
closed on election day.
Hundreds of well-known Republicans
from the Interior of the stato and fro.'ii
the several wards of this city havs
called at the state headquarters and
volunteered their services for campaign
work. Many young men who have rot
heretofore taken a hand in polbics
have asked to be enrolled for org:inl
tatlon purposes, and a long list of ora
tors has been made up for Chairman
Penrose to call upon when occasion
shall require that thny be dispatched
to different parts of the state to address

outdoor campaigning shall be inaugu

gaging the attention of Secretary An
drews, who, with a score of stenogra
phers, is busy until late every evening
at the headquarters on Locust street,
This building is admittedly the opst
equipped and most desirable headquar
ters of any political organization in tho
country. The property hns been leased
by the Republican organization of
Pennsylvania for a number of years,
and It is admirably suited for the pur
poses for whlc h It is being used.
Since the last campaign the building
has been thoroughly renovated and
made more attractive In many ways.
Chairman Penrose and Secretary An
drews have adjoining oflices on tho
second floor, each with an outlook on

drews had several conferences beforo

and tho plans for the campaign were
fully mapped out. Senator Penrose has
Just written home that he expects to
be back In this city by September 1.
He Is having an enjoyable time riding
on horseback in the wilds of Wyoming
and Idaho, and will without doubt re
turn In splendid health to take up tho
work of the chairmanship of the state
committee and press the campaign vig

A meeting of 'the Republican statu
committee will be held on or about
September 12, at which nominations
will be made to fill vacancies on tho
presidential electoral ticket. Some of
those who were nominated for these
honors by the Republican state con
vention have been found to be ineli
gible for the position by reason of tho
fact that they are connected with na
tional banks. They must either resign
their positions in these financial in
stitutions or get off tho ticket. Some
will retire from the ticket, while others
have expressed a determination to
temporarily withdraw from their con
nection with national banks so that
they may have an opportunity to voto
In the electoral college for Roosevelt
The meeting of the state rommltteo
will afford Chairman Penrose an oppor
tunity to personally confer with tho
active men from the different counties
and to have them report as to the con
dition of the party organization in
their respective districts.
There have been many calls for lit
erature bearing upon the present cam
paign, and as soon as tho national
committee shall be In a position to
meet this demand a eupply will be got

as the following statements will prove,
but all the cures have been permanont,
there being no return of the dlsenso or
any of tho symptoms even after a lapse

I was bloated and short of breath,
making it very laborious for mo to

sides. My stomach was also very sore
and throbbed with pain, I was told I
had kidney trouble and enlargement of
the liver and spleen. I finally began
tt.Mng Thompson's Uarosma and the
first bottle reduced tho measurement
uround my stomach from forty Inches
to thirty-six inches, and several bottles
completely cured mo. I glndly recom
mend it to others. This was Ave years

then my kidneys became Involved. At
times the pain became excruciating.
Having used a lnfl.e number of so-called
cures, I finally found a complete cure In
Thompson's Ilarosmn, several bottles
reducing all Inllammntion nnd conse
quently curing the pain. Thanks to
Barsomn, I have been perfectly weil for

The prevalence of Scotch names with
the (.'reck and Cherokee Indians baa al
various times been the source of no ne
comment. AUIioukIi other uatlois,
und, In fact, nearly every nation, k
represented by the mimes borno by
these people, these Scotch names are
far more numerous and have sulTen.l
less change than those acquired from
any other mil ion. Tho names of some
of these Scotch Indians tire closely al
lied with the history of these two na
tions for the oust 100 vears. mill for
Heveral eneriitions such names as Mc
intosh, McKellop, MeCombs, Adlr,
lleljneen and MeCJIIIIvnry are reKlster

clal pupeni of moment to either na
tion. Men bearing these names today
lire unions? the foremost of the pro
gressive I milium.
As was stated, the origin of these
Scotch names dates back over 100
yenrs. At that time the Creek and
Cherokee Indiana more especially bent
their efforts toward building up a na
tion of physically perfect men. The
women were encouraged to mate only
with the strong. iv!ust men of the
tribe, and If a weak man withstood the
taunts and gibes of his fellows nnd re
mained there wns little chance of bis
securliiR n wife. In that way the life
of these people was almost Spartan.
While this sentiment was nt Its
height and the tribes were llvliijr in
(ieorgla, some time before the devolu
tion, a regiment of Scotch highbinders
was quartered in tho vicinity of ono
of the principal villages of the nations.
