The Republican Canvass.
The Republican people and press of this
State are just now engaged in an open con
sideration of th# party situation and of the
candidates in the field for the Guber
natorial nomination. It is a very whole
some thing. If it is carried on with the
single purpose of bringing out the real
party sentiment and allowing it to be so
shaped as to obtain the best results, the
discussion must prove most beneficial.
There is need, however, of the utmost fair
ness and entire absence of acrimony if any
good is to follow.
The Republican party is entitled to, and
doubtless will, make its own nomination
reunite to follow are of a very important
character, and the supremacy of the party
whose principles were so unmistakably ap
proved by the people at the last Presiden
tial election is not to be put in peril by
subversion of the will of the Republican
masses or any interference with the free
action of the party in roakine its choice of
candidates. "We do not believe there is
any such purpose. Leaders, and thone in
influential party position, will hare their
preferences, doubtless, but these will be
accepted by the party as they are wise or
rejected as they are unwise.
There are several announced candidates
for the Republican nomination for Gover
nor, and until recently very little interest
was manifested in the drift of the canvass.
Within the past few days that has changed.
The whole field is now under review, and
this is the time for it. There are great
apprehensions in some quarters of party
disturbance and party peril. We cannot
olose our eyes to this fact. If these appre
hensions are real this is the time to inquire
into their cause. We cannot afford to
▼ait until after the Convention, when it
■will be too late to remedy mistakes. This
ia what the present general Tliscussion of
the situation means.
The place to settle Eepublican diffi
culties is inside the Republican party.
This has not always been done, but when
we have failed it has been at such a sacri
fice that the lesson has proved impressive,
and no one can now be unmindful of it.
Ko man's interests, whatever they are,
should be allowed to stand in the way of
the always greater and broader interests of
the Republican party, which are also the
interests of the people at large. The man
who is nominated for Governor this year
must be one who can command the confi
dence and support of the Republican
voters, there will then be no fear of the
result Tne name of the candidate will be
of no consequence so long as the man is
the choice of the party itself.
Por that reason there should be the
widest and freest discussion ef candidates
previous to the Convention. That is now
in progress. Conducted in a spirit of fair
ness and unselfishness, as it ought to be,
no candidate who is fit to bear the standard
of the Republican party will fear to have
the strongest light turned upon his record
and character.— Philadelphia Press.

The State Canvass
A recent dispatch from Washington,
The recent visit of State Chairman An
drews to Washington has developed a
suspicion that a new program has been
agreed upon in regard to the Guberna
torial canvass in Pennsylvania, namelv:
that the slaughtering of Delamater is to be
done by the Chairman, while Quay keeps
his hands out of the matter. It would be
just as effective to have Andrews show
a marked indifference to Delamatcr's suc
cess as to have Senator Quay pronounce
against him, while it would relieve Quay
of the charge of having been forced by
public sentiment to abandon a candidate
whom he allowed to be understood was
his particular choice as a successor to

ter," the Philadelphia Press, in a leading
editorial, publishes the charges made by
•x-Benator Emery in his Bradford speech,

Governor of the State. He cannot afford
to remain silent under accusations such as
these and coming with the emphasiti and
from the source that these do.
"Senator Delamater owes it not merely
to himself, but to the Republican party,
whose candidate for the great office ol
Governor he expects to be, to meet these
charges fully and completely and so stran

chance for anybody either inside or out
side the party to use them. This is due
the Republican people, who are now_ in
possession of but one side of the story, and
who may wrongly construe absolute si
lence. Delay or failure to make convinc
ing answer cannot but prove unfortunate.
"The Press makes this request of Sena
tor Delamater in behalf of the Repub
licans of the State. It has taken no sides
in the canvass for the Gubernatorial nomi
nation; its candidate for Governor will be
the nominee of the convention. The
party requires, howei'Cr, that the nominee,
whosoever he may be, shall be one against
whose character no charges can be suc
cessfully made. Senator Delamater can
doubtless refute ex-Senator Emery's allega
tions, and he ought to satisfy the whole
Republican party of that fact. They
are of too serious a nature to go un

count upon an cany victory this year. The

with practical unaminity, and the local

Samuel J. Randall.
Mr. Randall, who died after along and
painful illness at his homo in "Washington
yesterday morning, entered Congress in
the year 1*63 and has served continuously
since then. He was born in IS2*. and

honesty, and with deiinite and clearly eou
ceived purposes in h'- public lite and re
markable executive ability. The:-e quali
ties enabled him to make a conspicuous
career in the House.
He was not in the common sense a
partv man, though he was always a
Democrat. At the beginning of the war
ho enlisted and served as a private soldier,
and was all through the war a war Demo
crat. He was elected to Congress while
still a private soldier in the field.
lie soon became conspicuous in the
House, where he asserted his own opin
ions and found adherents for the policy he
believed to be the best.
Mr. Randall was a man of the type of
Andrew Jackson. Like Jackson he was
not a broad man, but in his own field and
range he was master of his work, and im-
Sressed his own individuality upon all he
id and caused to be done. It is not too
much to say that, coming to the head of
tho Appropriations Committee at the time
he did. there was not another man in
either party who could have forced forward
the necessary work of reform in the public
expenditures as he did. It required the
indomitable will, the persistent force and
the great power of continuous labor which
he alone had to bring the country back
from the looseness of war expenditures to
a peace establishment Later contro
versies have caused his estimable services
in this particular to be somewhat for
gotten; but, after all, it was what he then
heiran and later continued which gave

all hazzards. What he believed right he
did, and was not to be moved from it.
He would rather be beaten than submit, and
to use a common saying, "If he could not
make a spoon he cor Id always spoil a horn.
It remains to be said of hiin that he was
a thorough American —one of the " plain
people," whom Mr. Lincoln loved; true to
his country, true to the people, simple in
his tastes and habits, honest and sincere.
It was his pride to live in a small house in
one of the obscurer parts of Washington,
and on a street which, though he was

THE Standard Oil Company is a great
affair and no mistake. According to Mr.
Rockefeller, the company at the present
time manufactures 3,500,000 gallons ol
crude petroleum into different products
per day. Two thirds of these products, of
the value of $55,000,000 are exported.
The company employs in its business a
force of about 25,000 men.
Quay and Fitler.
A dispatch f.om Philadelphia, dated last
Friday, said: Senator yuay left this city
to-day much troubled in spirit and with
gloomy thoughts of the Delamater can
vass. To-night his forces are shattered,
and if Delamater is to obtain any delegates
at all in Philadelphia he will have to fight
as he never fought before to get them.
Mayor Fitler and Senator Quay held
their final conference to-day. It lasted
two hours, and when Senator Quay left the
Mayor's house, he was in an ugly frame of
mind. So angry was he that he declined
to see his most intimate friends, and he
hastily bundled np his traps and-disappear
Quay failed to move the Mayor in his
allegiance to Hastings. Filler called upon
Quay to heed the warning on all sides and
not provoke the threatened revolt by
forcing Delamater on the ticket. The
Senator tried to evade the issue by saying
that Delamater had made his own
fight and that he coald not take him out.
His Honor replied that he would do every
thing in his power to send a solid dclega
tion from Philadelphia to the State Con
vention for Hastings.
The Mayor next sent for Charles A. Por
ter, Chairman of the Republican City Com
mittee, and told him his ultimatum. I'or
ter has always been one of Quay's trusted
lieutenants and shares honors with Collec
tor of Internal Revenue Martin in bossing
the Quay machine in Philadelphia. When
Porter left the Mayor he proceeded to the
Quay headquarters and seut a cold shiver
down the backs of the Quay crowd by an
"Gentleman, 1 am for Hastings, and as I
have pledged myself to tbo Mayor, 1 will
do all I can to elect Hastings delegates."
This is the first serious break in the Quay
ranks, and when Senator Delamater was
subsequently informed of Porter having
turned in with the Mayor he said:
"I will win without Philadelphia."
But nevertheless Delamater was as much
aunoyed as 4uay at Potter's defection.
The situation no» looks as if Bastings
will get from 25 to 30 delegates out of the
39 to which Philadelphia is entitled, and
Senator Quay felt confident last night
that he would succeed in pilling tue
Mayor away from Hastings, but he missed
it. He found Fitler a more stubborn man
than he calculated and he lost.
There is no doubt now that the Mayor
will order a tight all along the line. It is
predicted that Collector Martin, who is
still standing by Quay, will make only a
half-hearted tight against Kitler because he
owes much to the Mayor.
When James McMunes was informed of
the Mayor's coup to-night he said he failed
to see where Delamater would even make
a respectable showing at the Philadelphia
primaries. It is reported that ex-Governor
Hoyt is ready to join the Independents if
Delamater is nominated.
IT was Tom Corwin who said that "the
only thing beyond the prescience of the
Omnipotent is the verdict of an American
jury." In a Cleveland murdor case, where
the defendant knecked his man down and
deliberately kicked the life out of hi:n, the
jury brought in a verdict of "guilty of as
sault and battery." This has caused no

"The Day We Celebrate."
At the meeting'of the Union Veteran
Legion on Wednesday evening of last week.
Mr. U". A. Clark responded to the above
toa.-t as follows:
"We are met to-night to celebrate the
.r.iii'iver.-arv of the silver wedding of the
forced anion of- these United States.
Tw. ntv-five years ago to-day Gen. Lee
and his army surrendered —gave up the
attempt to divide the Union, and the
word was flashed all over the civilized
world that the war of the rebellion was at
au cad. Some of my .-omrades who are
present to-night were eye-witnesses to
that glorious scene. Oh! how many hearts
were mad'? glad oil that eventful day: how
many fond fathers and loving mothers,
whose sons hail been battling for the
right, and who had escaped death, re
joiced and thanked God that the«ruel war
was over: how many noble, true and lov
ing wives wept for joy at the prospect of
having husbands and fathers safely home
again; how many sweethearts went almost
wild with eestacv at the very thought of
knowing that their lovers had been spared
to come back to them, and the veterans,
how their hearts swelled with joy and
i )r ide—joy to know that they would meet
loved ones again, and to feel that their
hardship?', their wounds, their patriotism
had saved the Union, and preserved for
them, their loved ones and posterity, the
greatest and best republic on the earth.

we should celebrate the ninth day of
April? Can you not join heartily with us

Well done, Mr. Blaine.
Whatever else may come of the deliber
ations of the Pan-American Congress, the
agreement arrived at to hereafter settle all
national disputes between any two of the
Republics of Xorth, South and Central
America and Uayti by arbitration will be
esteemed as more tbun justifying all the
labor and expense that have attended the
sittings of the delegates. The only excep-
tion from matters of dispute which inusfrbe
arbitrated is in case a nation may believe
its independent existence at stake, when
arbitration may bo declined. The agree
ment of the Congress is at once binding
upon all the parties to it except the United
States, the assent of which will not have
been completed until after ratification by
the Senate. The treaty is to remain in
force twenty years after ratifications shall
have been exchanged. After that time any
nation dissatisfied with its terms may with
draw upon one year's notice.
This assurance of good understanding
am-eig the States of America ought to have
its effect in greatly reducing military and
naval expenditures. It ought also to be
an impressive lesson for the older States of
Europe, which are wasting the resources of
their people in maintaining vast military
organizations to insure peace by perpetual
readiness for war. An agreement of the
great I'owers to arbitrate their difficulties
would be the longest stride toward the
millennium that Christianized nations have
ever made.—Philadelphia Record
