THE FOREST REPUBLICAN.
. C. WINK, - Coitok 4 PnorniXTOR. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 17, 1906. Township Caucuses. TIOWK8TA TWP. The Republican voters of Tionrsta township will meet at the Township Uouneon Saturday, January 27, l!5t at 2 o'clock p. m.. for the purpose ot plae ing in nnminalion a ticket for the FebrU' ary election. W. W. Thomas, Committeeman, ORES TWP. The Republicans of Green township will meet at (be Township House on Saturday, Jan. 27, 190G, at 2 o'clock p m., r-r me purpose of nominating ticket for the February election. K. L. Hacoh, Committeeman, The f 10,000,000 income ol Mr. Rocke feller is a good deal of uioney, but it doesu't talk on the witness stand. Now it is said President Roosevelt aided W.d-worth merely because be is John Hay's son-in-law. The President naturally takes more interest in sons-in-law than be he used to do. The Supreme court of Georgia bas de cided that express companies must carry liquor into towns despite local prohibi tion ordinances. The Georgia judge rec ognizes the fact that thirst is no respecter of law. Brazil is aiming a blow at the United States by Imposing an ntijust tariff upon American flour and grainstuffs. Uncle Sam will probably retaliate by raising the duty on Brazil nuts and orangoutangs. The Cleveland Leader says: The ac cepting of rebates and special rates from railroads by the United Statis Steel cor poration and its subsidiary corporations, has bf-en ordered stopped by President W. E. Corey. "If President Roosevelt shall fall in his fight for rail say rate legislation,' says a bign Democratic authority, "it w ill mean the destruction Of the Repub lican party." W hat Is the use of sug gesting anything so utterly impossible as a failure on the part of Theodore Roose velt? r rom California comes a report that a man dangerously sick In a hospital there says be knows who Bred the fatal shot at Qoebel. The Kentucky Democratic machine wants no such information. It would spoil the game of punishing polit ical enemies after trying them by uries composed of twelve Democrat. Forty years ago Robt. E. Lee was of fered the pp-sidency of the Northern Life Insnrence company at a salary large enough for those days. He wrote that he "hadn't the ability or the experience to command such a salary." He was told that his name was worth-it. "What in fluence I have with the Soutbetn people is not for sale," said Lee. That ended the negotiations. Things are different now. As Indiana jury has awarded a man who was injured in a runaway caused by his team becoming frightened at an an tomoblte, f.3,000 damages against the owner of the buzz wagon. Kind and gentle treatment of this kind will do more to cause the cbafTeurs to regard the rights of others on the public highway than all the stones and bard words that can be thrown at them, as they sail by tearing great gaps in the speed ordinance. Ix the Senate at Harrisbnrg Monday Mr. White, of Beaver, Introduced a uni form primary election bill to carry out the governor's idea in bis call. The bill provides for the holding of uniform pri maries by the Republican and Democratic parties on the second Tuesdays of Jan uary and June of each year. The primaries- are to be held at the usual polling places between the hours of 7 a. in. and 7 p. m under the direction of officers in charge of the general election. The announcement of Mr. Sibley's withdrawal from any future contests for Congressional honors bas opened the field for many aspiring statesmen who would not be averse to taking the place thus vacated. Capt. H. H. Cummings, of Tldioute, is the fljst to enter the arena from Warren county, having already put forth his announcement in the papers of his county, and the probabilities are that Attorney William E. Kite and ex-Sena toro. U.Allen will take a shy at the ruuuing. Major Alex. McDowell and ex-Judge Miller of Mercer are also among the "mentioned." In all human probability we shall have no dearth of candidates when the ball opens, And why should we with such a surfeit of excellent timber on hand? In this connection, the Franklin News of Mon day says: "The friends of O. D. Bleak ley are putting him to the front as a can didate for Congress, to succeed Han. Jo seph C. Sibley. They attempted to In. (luce biin to make the Announcement today but he declined to take the step." It Is the contention of Major Brown, secretary of internal affairs, says the Kane Republican, that the exacting of deposit on mileage books Incorporates elements of banking business into rail way management beyond, the charte: powers of carrying companies. This view of the subject follows the custom of the railroad companies in designating the excess charges as a "deposit." The fact is, however, that the company selling tho book charges thirty dollars fur it. allow ing a rebate of ten dollars on complying with specified conditions. It is the con stitutional provision against rotates by common carriers which is boldly and persistently violated in the sale of mile age bookstand redemption of the covers. It may be that now, since the railroads have discovered the clause in the state constitution forbidding the issuing of free passe, the legislature may be pre vailed upon to take up the equally Im portant provision axainst discrimination and rebates. For more than thirty years both clauses have stood in the organic Jaw without adequate legislative enact ments to enforce them; during the pres ent agitation of the subject popular sen timent should becotueBufflciemly defined to stimulate action by the legislature to be chosen at the next general election. Hon. Joseph C. Sibley Announces His Determination to Retire at the End of His Present Term in Congress. To My Frirndt and Constituent: It was, I think, the younger Pliny, who said that the young man owed service to his fellowmen and his country, but that the old man owed service to himself. More than one-fifth of my life bas been given to political service. Every ambi tion of a political character bas been more than satisfied, and It is my desire on the completion of my present term to be re lieved from further service. To the best of my ability I have served yoo in publio life with fidelity and seal, without at any time permitting one ael fish desire or personal advantage to in fluencemeon any question confronting me in the discbarge of my public duties. In the review of my pnblio actions I can not recall having bit an unfair blow po litically; and hsve never knowingly broken my word or faith with my con stituency, or with any oneol tbem with possibly a single exception wherein it seemed to me I as Justified in so doing. During my term of service I have been constant In my attendance at the sessions of congress, and up to December last re call no day that I have been absent from tbe sessions of the bouse if able to be out of bed; and never at any time have neg lected the interest of any constituent, no matttr what might be bis political affilia tion, or bow poor and obscure he or she might be. True, ibis was only dnty. But bad it not been a doty, the love and confidence so generously bestowed by tbe good people of all political parties during so many bard tights in tbe political areoa, have been so appreciated by me tbat it bas always seemed tbat tbe best services I bad In my power to render was too slight an expression of my appreciation of your loyal love and support. As your representative In congress it as never fallen to my lot to do any great thing, but the opportunity has beeu given me to do msny good things. There Is one class of people whose interests I bave been able to serve; at least no opportu nity for the betterment of their condition has ever been neglected by me; and that class is made up of tbe noble manhood and womanhood of our natlou who reside on American farms. I have believed for years, and still believe tbat they are tbe great conservators of tbe nation; tbe moral balance wheel which affords tbe surest guarantee of the permanency of our forms of government, and tbat their cnltivated moral sense generally arrives at a just if not an absolutely accurate conception of the genus of onr higher civilization. On all public questions I bave attempt ed to apply tbe one single rule, and that the "Rule of Kigbt;" and at no time bave allowed my partisanship to blindly galde me. While I recognize that as your repre sentative I have made mistakes, no vote bas ever been cast by me except in ac cordance with my most enlightened con ceptions foi the welfare of my constit uents and my country. But whether my position was right or wrong, both friend and foe in an have known where to find me, for I bave never at any period of my life been on both sides of any given ques tion, nor bave I ever dodged one vote since entering congress. This course baa, I believe, won for me tbe re-pect of my fellow members, which will be val ued so long as I live. I never anticipate again being a candi date for any political position, and shall join with you In tbe desire that my suc cessor will be one who will try as unsel fishly and loyally as I bave done to serve your interests, and be clothed with a greater measure of ability in doing so. Sincerely and affectionately, Your friend, Joseph C. Sibley, Washington, Jan, 10, 19U6. REDUCED PRICE! a ON WINTER GOODS.

Sibley to bis people, the text of which appears in the Republican today, de claring his retirement from ofllcial life at tbe expiration of bis present term as Congressman, comes with what might almost be termed a shock to bia thous ands of friends and admirers not alone in this, his district, but the whole coun try as well, for Mr. Sibley baa long since become one of the leading national fig ures. Regret, sincere and heartfelt, ia expressed on every hand at this decision of our splendid Representative, and this feeliug of sorrow Is not confined at all to political friends, but extends to those even who bave opposed biin heretofore on party lines. Mauy bad hoped tbat Mr. Sibley'a decision in this matter might be recalled, and hundreds of tele grams have gone to blm to reconsider his determination, but hia mind Is made up and hia decision is irrevocable. And since it is so we can only extend grate ful thanks to him for what he baa done for his people, and wish him all the peace and happiness which inevitably spring from a consciousness of duty ever faith fully performed.
