— THE campaign is on apace.
— THE defenders of the capitol
graft cannot find that another capitol
cost nine millions of dollars to furn
ish.
— REVELATION that some of the
solid mahogany carvings in the capitol
are simply painted putty proves once
more that "beauty is only skin deep."
Or you might say a deep skin.
—PRESIDENT ROOSEVEI.T refuses
to express publicly any preference for
any candidate for the office of Gover
nor, but it is known that he is against
the Penrose Machine and all that it
stands for.
—WE repeat most emphatically
that the office of Judge should be
divorced from party politics. This
can only be done by the voters cast
ing their ballots without regard to the
orders of political bosses.
—To have pure government one
party must not be allowed to be in
power too long, and now is the time
to make the great strike against the
corrupt machine. Berry, Emery and
Creasy will straighten the State up to
a high standard.
—THE Machine says, whenever
capitol extravagance is mentioned;
"What are you kicking about ? The
money was spent for the goods and it's
all there !" Togo no farther thun

Benton, private secretary of Hon.
John G. McHenry, candidate for

—THERE is so much spelling re

in Carbon County that Judge Heydt
has been shocked and feels called up
on to summon the responsible author

He advises that the makers of the
signboads be compelled to consult the
dictionary, as some of the orthogra
phy is such that no man can make it
out. The Judge's advice is really
good, and ought to be widely follow
ed.
—IT is a lamentable fact that the
great neglect and extreme necessity of
better accomodations and tare to our
State's most unfortunates—those who
are forced to abide within the scanty
and very ordinarily furnished asy
lumns and mad houses—are so notic
able to the gangsters, just at a time

RADICAL REPUBLICAN COURT SAYS DEMO
CRATS HAVE NO CANDIDATE FOR JUDGE
ON Monday the Dauphin county court dared to contradict a cus
tom that has been hold a.s a law with tho two great political
parties for tho last thirty years, when it decided that the ex
ecutive committee of the Democratic State Committee had no right
in declaring Hon. John G. Harman as Democratic candidate for
judge in this sixteenth judicial district.
This decision was contrary to the expectations of tho broad
est and fairest' minded citizens, and can only be accepted as one of
tho many efforts introduced to place this district in the Republican
column.
Tho one important question arising, and that which will in
terest most of our voters, is, what right has a radical Republican
court to decide a question that affects its political side directly ?
This is all very plain ; it did not desiro as much to givo Mr. Her
ring an equal chance with Mr. Ilarman as it did to make the chances
equally small for them ar.d greater for the Republican candidate,
which causes Mr. Herring to laugh up his sloovo.
Furthermore, both eagerly and willingly submitted the case,
with all the evidence, and by the best legal talent attainable, to the
executive committee, who impartially took it up, gave it careful
study and unanimously decided in favor of Mr. Harman, who had
received the majority of votes in the district.
When this is all considered and the fact known that next year
a new law abolishes the coni'erree system and tho majority rule will
control, wo think there will bo no trouble fw-Mr. Ilarman to carry
his party vote, notwithstanding that by this lato decision of tho
court forcing him off the ticket, the same as Mr. Herring, and leav
ing the judicial column of the Democratic ticket blank.
Mr. Harman's name will appear on the ticket under the head
of "majority rule", and it is tho duty of every true, royal Demo
crat to exert himself to explain the situation thorouglily to his
neighbor so that ho may bo able to vote intelligently and assist in
elocting a capable and deserving person to presido over our courts
of justice—one who, without fear or favor, will receive and hear the
complaints of tho most humble in the same degree as he would listen
to the coal baron, iron king, railroad magnate, or any great corpo
ration ; one who will go into office unprejudiced and under no obli
gations to any great factor, other than you—THE PEOPLE.
LINCOLN THE ATHLETE. '
Bow the VonUi'n Dodllr Visor Stood
Him In Good Stead.
Young Lincoln's bodily vigor stood
film In good stead In wnnjr ways. In
frontier life strength and atlilotlc skill
served as well for popular amusement
ns for prosaic toll, and at times. Indeed,
they were needed for personul defense.
Every community had Its champion
wrestler, a man of considerable local
Importance, In whose success the
neighbors took a becoming Interest
There was not far from New Bulem a
lettlement called Clary's Grovo, where
lived a sot of restless, rollicking young
backwoodsmen with a strong lilting for
frontier athletics and rough practical
Jokes. Jack Armstrong was the leader
of these and until Lincoln's arrival had
been the champion wrestler of both
Clary's Grove and New galena. lie and
his friends had not the slightest per
sonal grudge against Lincoln; but,
hearing the neighborhood talk about
the newcomer and especially OHut's
extravagant praise of his clerk, who,
according to Ollut's statement, knew
lnoro than any one else In tho United
States and could beat the whole coun
try at munlng, Jumping or "wras
tllug," they decided that the time hud
come to assert themselves and strove
to bring about a trial of strength be
tween Armstrong and Lincoln. Lin
coln, who disapproved of ull this "wool
lng and pulling," as he called it, und
bad no desire to come to blows with
bis neighbors, put off the encounter as
long as possible. At length even his
good teniiwr was powerless to uvert It,
and tho wrestling match took place.
Jack Armstrong soon found that he
hud tackled a manns strong and skill
ful us himself, and Ills friends, seeing
him likely to get tho worst of It,
I warmed to Ills assistance, almost suc
ceeding, by tripping and kicking, In
getting Lincoln down. At the unfair
ness of tills Lincoln boenme suddenly
and furiously ungry, put forth his en
tire strength, lifted the pride of Clary's
Grove lu his arms like a child and,
holding blm hlgli In tho air, almost
choked the life out of blm. It seemed
for u moment as though u general light
must follow; but even wlillo Lincoln's
fierce rage compiled their respect his
Quickly returning self control won their
admiration, and tho crisis was safely
passed.
Instead of becoming enemies and
leaders In a neighborhood feud, as
might havo been expected, the two
grew to be warm friends, tho affection
thus strangely begun lasting through
life. Thoy proved useful to each other
In various ways, and years afterward
Lincoln made ample amends for his
rough treatment of the other's throat
by saving tho neck of Jack Armstrong's
son from tho lialter In a memorable
trial for murder. Tho Diary's Grove
"boys" voted Lincoln "the cleverest fel
low that over broke Into the settle
ment," and thereafter took ns much
pride In his peaeeubleness and book
learning as they did In the rougher and
more questionable accomplishments of
their discomfited leader.—Helen Nlcolay

DOCTORS' FEES.
A Medleal View of the Oharßea and
Work of Physician*.
Tho law of supply and demand regu
lates medical compensation to a very
great extent. It Is a natural phenome
non, over which neithor tho professor
nor tho laity have much control. Whero
there are many physicians of equal
ability competition grinds down tho
feos. If the income drops below living
expenses the least successful leavo tho
community or tako up other means of
getting bread and butter. Tho fittest
survive, and in every locality tho com
position of the profession is In a state
of constant flux—never tho same from
year to year and constantly regulating
Itself to the work to be done. When a
man develops exceptional skill his serv
ices are demanded more and more.
They aro bid up by competitors on tho
other side. 110 is, Indeed, compelled to
ralso his foes to prevent overwork,
straugo as that may seem. 110 would
not be doing his duty by his patients If
ho tried to treat a hundred a day, and
that many would crowd his olllces If
his fees wore 23 cents. It Is also a fact
that a surgeon can do more now than
over before—a few can do wonders as
compared with tlio surgeons of a cen
tury ago—and they receive more in pro
portion by tho operation of natural
law. How they gained this ability is
immaterial to the question. Indeed,
not all have ability to profit by fortui
tous opportunities to learn surgery^*

The United States architect, Mr
Green, who was supervisor for the
capltol commission,has supplied a foun
dation for the probing by bis sustain
ing in every detail the assertions ol
the commission's president, ex-gover
nor Stone, In flatly contradicting Uulld
er George F. Payne's claim that onlj
the "shell" was to be put up by th<
commission through Payne's contract
Green, one of the best-known architect!
In the world, says:
"Tho Pennsylvania capltol was readi
for the chandeliers and the furniture
when we got through with It. Ther<
was nothing needed to be done except
In tho way of such additional orna
mentation as the board of public build
Ings and grounds thought necessarv
The structure was ready for occupancy
the plans had been fully carried oui
and the specifications had been com
piled with."
Now if, as Green declares, the work
when the commission got through wltt
it, was "well and economically per
formed throughout, and everything
called for in the specifications was fur
nished," the great question for th<
probers is: "What has become of th<
finishings which were considered bs
so competent an authority to be good
enough? Where are they? They hav<
disappeared. Were they torn out 01
covered up by the Imperial "furnish
lngs" which the board of public
grounds and buildings, headed by th<
present governor, procured without t
special appropriation? Mr. Green adds:
"Every room was complete in all re
spe«ts. The building was palntei
throughout, the heating apparatus wai
in working order, the ventilating plpei
were In place, conduits for electric
lights were complete througout th<
building and the wires were laid. Not
did any of this work have to be tore
out and done over again. When thi
building was turned over by the com
mission It was only necessary to put
the chandeliers In placo and move It
the furniture to make the building
practically as it Is today."
Since Green thus spoke Mr. Payne
has said: "The ornamental work
which we did was not In the original
specifications." Asked what work
done by his firm was torn out and re
placed with more expensive trimmings.
Payne replied: "I can't say ofT-hand
what extra work we did for the board.''

even before the contracts had been |
awarded to John H. Sanderson th« |
"Pennsylvania Hronze Company" had '
been organized by him and work on
the chandeliers actually begun. The j
designs of Architect Joseph M. Hus
ton's artistic bronze fixings were on
display in his office for weeks before |
the actual awarding of the contract
by the board of P. O. A 8., and, ac- 1
cording to one of the expert modelen
employed by the company, he was set
to work in the architect's office three
or four dnys before the commission
had considered the various proposals
Listen to John Maene, one of the ex
pert modolers:
"Two months before the contract for
the chandeliers was awarded the Penn
sylvania Bronze Company was organ
ized. I was employed by the concern
while the contract for the state's illu
minating fixtures was being executed,
but at its completion the company went
out of existence, and the big plant at
13th and Cumberland was later con
verted into an automobile factory.
Even before it was announced that
Sanderson's company would get the
contract, and while other firms were
figuring on the bids, not knowing how
to estimate the cost of the chandel
iers by the pound, I was employed by
the company and made dally visits to
Mr. Huston's office to begin work on
the models.
"At that time I knew nothing about
the affair, but three or four days after
I began work one of the promoters of
the concern, who afterward became su
perintendent of the works, came into
the room where I was working and,
with a sigh of relief, remarked: 'I
feel better now; the commission's given
us the contract." It was then explain
ed that the company had felt confident
of getting the contract all along, but,
with the award by the commissioners
of P. G. & B. and the signing of the
contract, any trace of doubt which
might have existed was wiped out, and
from that day things went along flour
ishingly.
Cheap Make, But Fancy Price.
"One of the orders which struck me
most peculiarly was to make the work
heavier. As chandeliers are usually j
made rather fragile, we could not un
derstand the strange order. Time after
time models would be returned to us, |
and we would have to provide for more •
metal, until in some cases the chan-

deliers would be six times as heavy
as the ordinary ones. In some cases
tho weight was increased tenfold. Oft
en the men would be hardly, able to lift
the things to bo turned on the ma
chines. While the specifications pro
vided for the highest classes of work,
the fixtures were turned out in the
easiest way. French moulding was
stipulated, but plain ordinary castings
were deemed good enough. Evej-ythinf?
possible was done to cut down the
expense. Undercutting was avoided,
and often castings were made and the
chasers did the rest with their tools."
Maene added that prior to tho elec
tion of Treasurer Berry, against whom
the Sanderson firm exerted all of its
influence, there was a prodigal use of
metal, but after Berry had won the
contract was hurriedly finished and the
proprietors were less particular about
the quantity of metal. -

Roosevelt's State-Capitol Remark®,,
j Supplemented With Between

j Edwin S. Stuart, as a drowning man '
grasping a straw, reads to his au
diences the brief paragraph which was 112
all that President Roosevelt had to 1
say, in his capitol-dedication speech,
about affairs in Pennsylvania since
j the battle of Gettysburg. The presi
' dent did not even mention the exist
ence of the $13,000,000 (or, as Stato
Treasurer Berry and Lewis Emery, Jr.,
say, perhaps $17,000,000) state capltol.
In all those 43 years Mr. lloosevelt
found nothing to mention except the
work of last winter's extra session,
which he summarized and commended
as being so far so good. He gave ef
fusive praise to Senator Knox, who
sat near him, and he made much of
that senator with chatting and hand
shaking, while he utterly ignored Pen
rose in the speech, and before and af
ter, although that senator also sat not
far from the president.
Mr.": Roosevelt did not even make
the slightest reference to the congres
sional fights in the state. His abso
lute and complete avoidance of any
thing that could be construed by the
gangsters as offering them the least
encouragement in the present state
fight, was studied and glaring. The
president practically acknowledged
that his real Republican friends were

you have prohibited the rolicitation oi
