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
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
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
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
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

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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.

Deafness Cannot be Cared
by local applications, as they cannot reach th«
diseased portion of the ear. There is only one
way to cure Deafness, and that is by constitu
tional remedies. Deafness is caused by an in»
ttamud condition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube getslinflamed
you havo a rumbling sound or imperfect hear
ing, and when it is entirely closed Deafness is
the result, and unless tho inflammation can be
taken out and this tubo restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine casta out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condition ol
the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for any
case of Deafness (eaused by catarrh) that can
