Capt. J. Clayton Erb, husband of tbe

the acquittal of the women on the ground

and Vice President, and to cboote mes

would do the balloting direct for him
were elected in November.
It is stated on good authority that
Auditor General Robert K. Young, will
vigorously oppose any effort to induce
the coming legislature tn repeal the mer
cantile tax law. It has been repeatedly
intimated that such an effort would be
made. The law was first enacted in 1821.
General Young points out tbat witb the
increased expenditures in behalf of va
rious forms of pulilic charities and useful
state enterprises it would be unwise to
consider any proposition that would re
duce the income of the commonwealth.
He believes the objections urged against
the mercantile tax are really due to the
manner of Its enforcement, and as this
is improving year by year he thinks It
w ill soon be largely overcome.

Oliver bas been unanimously endorsed
by tbe legislative delegation of bis coun

respects, and Pennsylvania's every in

When Matbues, tbe former State
Treasurer, died, says the Oil City Bliz
zard, it was generally believed tbat his
nervous breakdown was a result of bis
conviction and sentonce as one of tbe
State Capitol grafters. And now comes
word that Sanderson, tbe Capitol "trim
mer," who collapsed in couit on receiv
ing sentence, is critically ill, and is likely
to follow bis colleague to the grsve. It is
strange bow illness bas pursued nearly
every man beld responsible for this pub
lic wrong. Another of them, James M.
Sbumaker, is a very sick man, and may
not recover. James C. Jeffries, tbe
warrant clerk, who knew more about the
payments for the trimmings than anyone
else, died suddenly, more from worry, it
is believed, than from disease. Payue,
contractor for tbe building, and indicted
on one charge, diod after a lingering ill
ness. These may be only coincidences,

justice of these men. But it looks as it
one of the heaviest burdens any man tries
to carry Is the sentence of guilt and
shame, pronounced upon him by a court
of justice aud ratified by public opinion.
By a vote of 212 to 35 Congress on Fri
day administered what we read in tbe
headlines of tbe daily press Is entended
48 a "stinging rebuke" to the President.
The "rebuke" consisted In tbe refusal of
the House to receive that portion of tbe
President's message ref 'rring to tbe work
of tbe secret service men, aud whicb inti
mated that tbe honorable Congressmen
didn't want to be "watched." Tbe dig
nity of Congress was offended, as it were,
and that's too bad. Nobody believes tbat
all the Representatives are bad, noither
does anybody balieve they are all good
and don't need watching. If a Congress
man is straight and loyal to bis constit
uents watching neither hurts nor annoys
him, hence it wouldn't seem necessary to
otl'er this socalled "rebuke" to the Presi
dent. Mr. Roosevelt still bas the confi
dence of tbe American people far above
the power of Congress to destroy, and it
is quite likely tbat many of those who
voted to rebuke him because be bas a
habit of calling things by tbeir right name
will find difficulty in bringing tbeir con
stituents into accord witb tbe Congress
ional notion on this subject.
"Hark, bark, tbe dogs do bark," Did
you ever note whiffet barking at tLe
heels of a great big personage and how
very little the bark amounted too? Do you
uote tbe "barkers" at tbe heels of our
grand, glorious, courageous President in
the last days of bis unparalleled adminis
tration? And bow tbe little puppies are
dodging out from all corners to get a nip
at tbe passing heels! Poor, puny curs!
How they'd like to sink their nasty faugs
Into bis flesh if tbey bad the courage to
get near enough. Every last one of them
that bas scraped together enough to buy a
few dollars woith of corporation stock bas
turned "barker," even a few of tbe little-
pated country editors(?) have caught tbe
infection and are doing tbeir utmost
which is insignificant enough to help
along witb the noise and din. Meautime
the incorruptible, undefiled Roosevelt
pursues tbe course of righteousness and
unfaltering devotion to the rights of all
the people, God bless him. When all
these puppets have gone into their boles
and been forever forgotten and un missed
the name of Roosevelt will be honored
and revered as the greatest apostle of
honesty, courage, and loyalty to tbe
principle of the "square deal," tbat bas
ever graced tbe greatest ofllceof the great
est nation on eartn.

Pleasing Effect of This Noted in
Opening of Legislature and
the Senatorial Caucus
Wonderful Friendship Manifested For
Senator Penrose, and G. T. Olivet
Received With Enthusiasm Gov
ernor and Legislature to Work in
The organization of the present
Pennsylvania Legislature was attend
ed with less strife and contention
than has characterized the organiza
tion ot that body in nearly a quartet
of a century past. The regular Kopttb
ltcans. largely in the majority, iliac
everything their own way. The policy
which has riven to the individual mem
bers of 1he party equal voice in all
affairs ia w hich the Republican organ
ization to concerned, lias brought the
party as a whole Into its own. and the
Indications are hat ouly lojris'.ation of
Interest to the whole people will re
suit from the pending session of th
United States Senator Roles Penrose
was ahnoat unanimously indorsed at
hi own successor. In the caucus ol
the Republican members of the Gen
eral Assembly but a few scattering
votes were cast against his reelec
tion, and It seems iiighly probable that
those few votes will b. cast with the
preat majority when the actual reelec
tion of Senator Penrose takes placo
on Jan. 19. when the General Assem
bly -will meet In Joint session for
that purpose.
Senator Penrose suffered very re
cently a severe affliction in the death
of his father. But feeling It was a
duty he owed the people of the state
to meet with the legislators and there
by get more closely in touch with
the wishes and desires of the people,
he was in Harrisburg before the open
ing of the Assembly and remained
there until tfie adjournment taken for
the purpose of allowing the commit
tees to be made up. While in Harris
burg his friends gathered about him
from every section of the state, and
many of those who were pledged to
vote against him in the legislative
caucus pledged their support and influ
ence for his reelection next week.
The friendship manifested on every
hand for Senator Penrose, the accept
ed party leader, promises well for the
future of the Republican party.
George T. Oliver, who seems to be
the only genuine candidate for United
States senaior to succeed Senator P.
C. Knox when the latter shall resign
to go into the Taft cabinet as secre
tary of slate, attended the organiza
tion of the Legislature. He had head
quarters at the Commonwealth hotel,
where he met legislators from every
part of the state and where he wbf
given kindly consideration by Republi
cans of every degree, large and small.
It seems a settled fact that Mr. Oliver
will be chosen as the successor to Mr.
Knox with no more of a contest than
accompanied the caucus nomination of
Senator Penrose as his own successor.
Mr. Oliver made many new friends
during his stay in Harrisburg. He also
met a host of old friends and upon
every 'hand his candidacy was received
with genuine enthusiasm, and the Re
publican party was generally congrat
ulated on the political conditions which
seem certain to provide for the elec
tion of two I'nited States senators at
the same session of the Legislature
without an unseemly struggle, ine
fact that both Senator Penrose and
Mr. Oliver represent the highest types
of American citizenship both pol
ished and capable reflects graciously
unon the Republican party as a whole
and the party managers in particular.
The election of John F. Cox of Alle
gheny county as speaker was in no
manner a surprise to the Republicans
of the state.
Governor Stuart's message to the
Legislature was one of the most Inter
esting papers coming from the state's
executive in years. His sincere and
earnest way of putting his recommen
dations, his very apparent grasp on
the affairs of the Commonwealth and
his ability to say Just what he means
gave to his message a decidedly busi
nesslike tone and its reading was lis
tened to with marked respect and In
The Governor fairly glows 1n dis
cussing the efforts made and makl-g
for the protection of the health of the
people of the state. He discusses In
no uncertain manner the need of bet
ter conditions for road building. He
treats liberally and intelligently many
other important trabjec ta. but the put
lie nealLh and the necessity for good
roads seem to appeal to him with the
greatest force, and about these topics
be writes like an expert.
There are distinct signs that the
Legislature will have much effective
help from the Governor, and the Gov
ernor seems to have positive assur
ance of getting about all the state
wants and really needs from the Leg
islature. Speaker Cox Is a personal
friend of tho Governor. The Governor
will ask him for nothing not for the
best interests of the state, and it is
Just as certain that Mr. Cox will give
to the Governor all his Influence In
letting for the slate those things
which will best serve the people. The
Senate as a whole is also in genial
harmony with the executive, and so it
is that all conditions point to a leg
islative session which will help large
ly to make the administration of Gov
ernor Stuart go down in history as a
brilliant success.
