CHAS. LOHEN WING, Editor. THURSDAY, NOV. 28, *9Ol. "FIRST OF ALL—THE MEWS." The News Item Fights Fair IT IS A PATRIOTIC HOME NEWSPAPER Published Every Friday Morning. By The Sullivan Publishiug Co. At the Count j- Seat of Bullivan County. LAPOHTE, PA. Kntered at the Post Office at La pone, as second-class mail matter. Harrlsburg, Nov. 26. —Serious dissen sions have appeared among the Demo crats of the state as the outcome of the recent state campaign, with their al liances with the Republican malcon tents who organized the Union party. The Democracy has become divided into two distinct factions, and the chances are that there will be a bitter contest at the next state convention to determine which element shall con trol the party machinery. The straight out Democrats have started out to take Colonel Guffey's scalp, and they say they will not be satisfied until they at least drive him from control of the party organization. They demand that the policy of the party shall hereafter be for the nomination of none but clean-cut Democrats for state and county offices, and that if the insur gent Republicans wish to defeat regu larly nominated Republican candidates they must do so by supporting Demo crats. A TIP TO GUFFEY. Guffey lives in Allegheny county, and he has already been given a taste of what he may expect in the near future. Guffey's deal with the Wanamaker Re publicans by which he placed Coray, an insurgent Republican, on the Demo cratic ticket for state treasurer was not at all popular among the Demo crats of Pittsburg and vicinity. They showed their feeling in the matter at the polls by turning in for the full Re publican ticket at the last election. In stead of pulling down the Republican majority in Allegheny, as Guffey antic ipated, he was amazed to find the Dem ocratic vote much smaller than it had been for many years, and that the Re publicans were thus enabled to roll up an unprecedented majority for an off year. Guffey has also heard from Demo crats in Westmoreland, Fayette, Adams, Berks, Cumberland, York and other counties, and he has discov ered that his leadership has been any thing but popular among the rank and file of the Democrats throughout the state. A secret organization has been form ed in Allegheny county, which will keep Guffey guessing on the subject of the election of the delegation from that county to the next Democratic state convention. Should he be un able to control a majority of the Demo cratic delegates from his home county Guffey's state leadership would be at an end. TROUBLES IN THE EAST. In Philadelphia GufTey is confronted with an element which is fighting for self preservation. This Is the old straight-out Democratic party vote, which controls the Democratic organi zation in 39 of the 42 wards in Phila delphia. Guffey has played sentimen tal politics in the Quaker City. He was carried away by the promise of the Wanamaker Republican politicians «iiid the Wanamaker controlled news papers in the recent contest. He did not know that former Governor Pattl son had allowed himself to be guided by the same influences, so that when Pattison was hailed as the new leader of Philadelphia Democracy, Guffey pos sibly thought there was a chance for him to score a point. But Pattison, controlled by the Wanamaker interest, and under the domination of his bitter foe of many years, former Judge Gor don, was not the Pattison of old. He has since learned that he is no longer an influential factor with the great mass of the Democracy. He quickly lost his following when be consented to the turning down of Judge Steven son, who was the candidate of the reg ular Democracy for judge of the com mon pleas court. Pattison deserted Stevenson, whom he had promised to support, and accepted the invitation of the Wanamaker lieutenants and placed a close personal friend, Henry Budd, on the Union party ticket for judge to succeed Judge Stevenson. Pattison is now accused of the basest treachery in this deal on the judgeship. The friends of Judge Stevenson, although their fa vorite did not win, are delighted over the fact that Pattison's personal choice •ilso went down at the polls and that the Wanamaker running mate with Budd on the Union party ticket cap tured the minority judgeship. PATTISON NO LONGER AVAILABLE Pattison has, therefore, not only lost a judgeship, but he has earned the everlasting hatred and political oppo sition of the thousands of friends of Judge Stevenson, among them some of the most active and enthusiastic Dem ocrats in Philadelphia. Pattlßon as even a possible Demo cratic candidate for governor is no longer considered. He would be op posed in the election of delegates by evary friend of Judge Stevenson, and throughout the state those Democrats who Intend to insist upon straight Democratic nominations in the future will have no time for Pattison, who op itosed the straight Democratic ticket in Philadelphia from top to bottom at the recent election, and took the stump for the Union party ticket, which in cluded among its candidates Wana maker's private counsel for district at torney. STANDS 111 HIS PARTY i' , : President Roosevelt Will Strength en Republican Organization. K RECENT SIGNIFICANT ACTION A Union Party Man As Pcetmaster of Philadelphia Will Be Supplanted By a Stalwart Republican, Backed By Quay and Penrose. (Special Correspondence.) Philadelphia, Nov. 20. —What must bo taken as an evidence of President Roosevelt's determination to recognize the regular Republican organization of Pennsylvania in making impovtant ap pointments under his administration was the action of the President in an nouncing a few days ago that he will appoint Colonel Clayton McMichael to be postmaster of Philadelphia. He made this announcement shortly after he had conferred with Senators Quay and Penrose and Congressman Bingham. The fact that Postmaster General Smith has been regarded as lukewarm, if not inimical to the influential Re publican leaders of Pennsylvania, has been made much of by the Union party leaders and they have endeavored to create the impression that the admin istration at Washington would not lose any sleep if the Republican leaders of the Keystone State were unhorsed. WILL RECOGNIZE SENATORS. The facts are quite to the contrary. While Mr. Smith has not contributed anything to the success of the Republi can party in Pennsylvania since he be came a cabinet officer, while he has persistently dodged invitations to ad dress Republican meetings in the state to which he is credited on the official rolls at Washington, and while the newspaper with which he has for a long time been identified has not aided the cause of Republicanism in Penn sylvania, he is absolutely powerless to aid the Union party managers or the insurgent sympathizers in Pennsylva nia through his position as postmaster general. President Roosevelt will recognize the United States senators in his own state of New York. He will do r,o In Ohio, where Senators Foraker and Hanna are now working in harmony, and In other states In the Union, where the senators represent the leadership of the Republican organization, and in Pennsylvania, where Senators Quay and Penrose and a majority of the Re publican members of the house are in hearty accord, no insurgent influence will be permitted to afreet the policy of President Roosevelt's administra tion. The president will In all cases Insist that men of high character and fitness tor the offices for which they are pro posed shall be presented to him and then he will be pleased to recognize the Republican organization's recom mendations. The president believes In civil ser vice reform and he also believes in the Republican party, and he knows that the principles of that party cannot be maintained without the continuance of a thorough and effective Republican organization. The selection of Colonel McMichael for postmaster of Philadelphia has been hailed with delight by stalwart Republicans throughout the state. Col onel McMichael is a descendant of for mer Mayor McMichael; Is a former United States marshal at Washington and a former city treasurer of Phila delphia. He has always been a stal wart among stalwart Republicans, and he was agreed upon by Senators Quay and Penrose mainly with a view to emphasizing the fact that recognition shall be given to those who stand true to the Republican party in adversity, as well as success, and who In their official life will see to it that the In terests of the Republican party shall be carefully and jealously guarded. NOTICE TO INSURGENTS. The appointment of Colonel Mc- Michael may be taken as a serving of notice upon men like present Post master Thomas L. Hicks that disloyal ty to party from beneficiaries of that party will not be tolerated at Washing ton. Mr. Hicks, through disappoint ment at not being recognized as leader of the district in which he resides, Joined the Union party outfit. He banked upon the friendship of Post master General Charles Emory Smith to keep him in office no matter what came, and then started Into campaign against the regular Republican ticket at the late election. He went so far as to take the stump against the Republi can candidates, but his efforts were not productive of substantial results. He boasted before election that he would carry his ward by a large majority for the Union party nominees. In fact, he declared that the Republican candi dates would lose West Philadelphia, which is one of the most wealthy resi dential section of the city, by a largo majority. The election returns show that the Republican candidates were not only successful in Mr. Hicks' home ward, but they carried three of the four hards in West Philadelphia. A DISAPPOINTED POLITICIAN. Mr. Hicks has learned a lesson he will not shortly forget, and that is that the Republican party cannot afford to tol erate traitors in Its ranks, and further, that President Roosevelt, looking to the perpetuation of the Republican or ganization in the nation, proposes to do everything In his power to strength en the Republican organization In the varlouß states, so as to Insure future triumphs In national campaigns. ■ WINCiIiESTERI CARTRIDGES IN ALL CALIBERS I i from .22 to .50 loaded with either Black or Smokeless Powder J! always give entire satisfaction.
