Republicans generally In this stale are not clamoring fur tbe re tirement of Senator Penrose. That gen tleman has shown up very well, thank you, in the higher branch of Congreas, and while some buay enemies have tried . to beamercb his public record, In not a Mingle instance baa be been found crooked. And then we like the way he baa supported tbe policlea of President ltoosevelt straight through. Thkhk Is mucb speculation in Con gressional circles at Washington these days as to the ultimate outcome of tbe pending controversy between congress and President Roosevelt over tbe use of the HO'-r t service agents, and considerable feeling has been aroused over the presi dent's ironical suggestion that congress men do not desire themselves and their actions watched, and still greater irrita tion over the knowledge that secret ser vice operatives are on tbe trail of con gressman, and that the president intends to continue the practice. Members ol tbe bouse and senate are wondering what the president has up bis sleeve. Juat what the disclosures will be are causing spec ulation and worriment on the part of some. It is considered possible that tbe president may have in bia possession some reports of secret service agents that would "shock tbe folks back home." A cautiously worded resolution of inquiry lias been adopted and tbe committee rav ing it in charge ia advised to inquire wbal tbe President means by his lan guage In other words certain members are anxious to insert the probe just a little bit, but not far enough to cause trouble. It la altogether likely that Mr, Roosevelt is prepared for tbem aa be gen erally ia when be strikes out from the hhoulder. lie's a mighty good fellow to let alone, as some have learned to their sorrow. With the election of Judge Taft as President of the United States, twenty-six men will have occupied this high olllce, says the Derrick. Cleveland, at his first election, was tbe twenty-second Presi dent. Hut alter an interval of one term be was again elected, fienjamln Harrisou was the twenty-third. But Mr. Cleve land, wnen ne occupied tne onice for tbe secoud time, was still the twenty-second President. By Home statisticians he is regarded as the twenty-fourth. This would make McKinley the twenty-tilth, Roosevelt tbe twenty-sixth and Taft tbe twenty-seventh. But in reality, with the completion of Roosevelt's term, this couutry has had only twenty-live Presi ileuls. Washington was the first Presi demand served two terms. Otbeia after hi 111 did (he same, but tbey are only counted once in the line of tbe Presiden tial succession.. There is no sense In making Cleveland both the twenty-sec' ond and twenty-fourth President. Dowu to tbe cloe of the administration of Pres ident Roosevelt, there were thirty Presi dential terms of four years each, Mr, Roosevelt was the twenty-Ofth different person to occupy tbe office. This makes Judge Taft the twenty-aixtb, By count ing Cleveland twice be can be called tbe twenty-seventh, but there ia neither rhyme nor reason lor tbe pruotice. Roosevelt Again on Top. ... Those parties who sought to impugn the motives of President Rousevtlt and his associates, in connection with tbe 1'itnaiua Canal purchase, are now seeking the little end of tbe bom, out of which tbey hope 10 be able to crawl, says the Oil City Blizzard. These muck-dredgera have endeavored, In every possible man ner, to dig up something that would cast discredit on. the digiug of tbe canal, something that could, by some book or crook, be utilized aa a "scandal" circulation-builder. William Nelson Cromwell, the New York lawyer upon whom tbe New York World called to tell what be knows about tbe transaction, says: "Tbe whole story of Americans or some Amer ican syndicate buying up the Panama Canal securities at a low price, or at any price, and then turning them in upon liquidation at a prolit is a fiction and a concoction. The money of the United States went to France and ffaadistrihuted to the hundreds of thousand of foreign owners, none of whom so far as I know were Americans." Mr. Cromwell thus knocks higher than Gilroy'a kite the charges and insinuations of graft in the l'auama Canal deal. The sensational charge was made Uy one ofthe New York -iers, and copied by tbe Indianapolia V that tbe (10,ijoo,0no paid by the tatea to die French stockholders Mied tbem, and that Cromwell man who could tell what money. It bad all the ge scandal, involving his brother, and the fc sident Roosevelt V'wg- ' W. Roobeytilt'H recent letter waa sweeping denial and a sooarcblng indictment of those who bad manufactured tbe charges, and be loat no time In enrolling them in tbe ancient or der of Ananias. The ed iter of tbe News made a feeble reply, and the New York World threatened to demand an Investi gation ol the whole matter by Congreaa. But Cromwell's letter effectively disposes of the absurd cbargea and leaves those wbo made tbem, figuratively speaking, "in a hole." Not a dollar of the money paid lor (be canal waa touched by Crom well a counsel for the company, nor by any one connected with tbe deal, but tbe whole amount waa turned over In bulk to the French Government In trust, to be distributed among tbe old and new bond holders of tbe Panama Canal Company. Tbia distribution is being carefully made to nearly a quarter of million of stock holders, much of It in small amounts, and the delaila of which la a matter of public record. No man In public life in tbe United States ever profited by dol lar In this large transaction, and tbe most absurd charge is that which connects President-elect Taft with the scandal, since be never bad any official connection with the canal until months after It bad been acquired by tbia Government, and was In the Philippines aa Governor dur ing all tbe yeara in question. This last contribution seems tu makjs tbe contro versy a closed Incident, with Roosevelt on top, aa usual. Mr. V heeler Favors Duly on Lumber. Washington, D. C, Dec. 0 -"The prop osllion to lake tbe tariff of 2 a thousand off lumber is a vicious one, and I do not think if will be done in the framing of the new tariff bill," said Representative Nelson P. Wheeler, of Kndeavor, Pa., In a recent interview at Washington. "It surely will uot be done if I can help II, for I know that free trade in lumber would work a great injury to tbe industry In this country, and In Pennsylvania in particular. Many thousand men are en gaged In Ibis industry in our Slate wbo would be seriously affected. "Furthermore, free trade In lumber would not In any n ay preserve the loiests of America. It would only result lu the flooding of our markets witb tbe lower grades of lumber, while we would still have tbe demand for the higher grades. Now, In order to get the higher grades we would have to cut down as many trees aa before, Bince all grades come from the same tree. So witb a glutted market In low grades there would be a waste, and many thousands of feet would lie In the woods to rot or catch fire. "Free lumber is a live Issue in Penn sylvania, for we are almost tbe largest prodmers of lumber in tbe country. In some kinds we take tbe lead, and our operations are all on an extensive scale. We have nearly as many saw in ills as any other State. And we do not waste any thing, for the parts of the trees that are not made up into lumber are used for wood pulp or for extracts for tanning purposes. "Pennsylvania is exporting Idnvber, sending it into Great Britain In com petition witb the product of Denmark, Russia and other lumber producing countries. White pine la being shipped from Canadiau ports and from Baltimore, and there la a good prospect for the ex tension of our export trade. "Do not be misled by tbe predictions that tbe forests In this country will soon be stripped bare and that (here will be a famine of lumber. The facts do not Jus- tily any such predictions. Tbe forests of Pennsylvania will last for many yeara after we have goue from earth. In 1865 I began lumbering on tbe Tionesta and tbey said then tbe timber would be all cut off m fifteen years. Our operations have grown year by year since that time, and still tbe end is not in sight. Of course, it Is wise to reforest and to guard against destruction by fires, but there is uo cause for worry over tbe outlook." Slightly Incorrect. There are several cases of typhoid fever over Forest County at the present time. We understand there are some cases In Tionesta borough and the patients did not onntract the disease at Marienville. While it la true that we have aome typhoid cases here, the Inference some of our county papers would draw tuat anv one in forest County bavins tvnbold who visited Marienville Ibis fall must surely have contracted tbe disease bare ia ab surd. Tbe facts are tbattbe people here are strong 01 tne opinion that tbe lypboid germs were brought rather than created here. Marienville Express. There are no cases of typhoid fever in Tionesta borough, nor near the borough, that we are aware of at tbia writing, Whatever inferences that were drawn re garding tbe disease in Marienville were likely Inspired by tbe Express itself when It published the follow lug item four weeks ago: "Complaint has been made that the doctors in tbia place are not complying with the law relative to notifying the board of health, which is tbe school board, of infectious or contagious diseases that come under their charge. The law is strict,! q .auch'cases and should ourdootors ue maue to pay a nne or aju onoe or twice for such neglect, we feel certain that they would not be so careless. The doctors In question may have something to sav in regard to this matter aud should we be misinformed we are ever ready to make tnings rignt. However, we do know that certain persons are sick and also know what the diseases are credited on fne street, and if correctly stated the doctors in charge 01 sucn should make a report wnicn iney nave nomone."
