Jr today gave out the following state ment from its Washington head quarters: "Mr. Pinchot's public demand that Senator Penrose decline the chair manship of the committee on finance when the Republicans resume control of the senate after the 4th of March, inferentially concedes that under all senate precedents Mr. Penrose Is en titled to the position, and, unwitting ly, it is a reflection not so much on Mr. Penrose as upon the integrity and ability of the senate itself, particularly the Republicans senators, and a still greater reflection upon the patriotism and intelligence of the electorate of (he great state of Pennsylvania—the second state in the Union in popular tion and wealth. "There is no question as to Senator Penrose's ability. In 1881 he grad uated from Harvard near the head of his class. He studied law with Wayne MacVeagh and %fter admission to the bar practiced in his home city. His neighbors elected him to the Pennsyl vania house of representatives and to the state senate for a period of 13 years, after which the legislature elected him to the United States sen ate for three terms of six years each and every time h e was the choice of a majority of the legislature before any party caucus was held. In 1914 he was re-elected by the people by a vote of 519,801 as against 269,265 for Mr. Pinchot and 266,415 for Mr. Pal mer. Mr. Penrose defeated each of his opponents by a vote of practically two to one. "In view of that record, to assume that Mr. Penrise is lacking in ability is a reflection upon Harvard College, upon the supreme court of Pennsyl vania, upon his neighbors who elected him to the state legislature, upon the stale legislatures that elected him to the United States senate, and the half million people who voted for hini in 1914. His continuous 35 years in pub lic life surpasses in length that of any other man now in the senate, or in the United States. For 14 out of his 22 years in the senate he has been a member of the finance committee, and for two congresses was its chairman. Such legislative experience as this, certainly qualifies him so far as ability is concerned. "His ability being unquesttonnble, the only possible justifiable basis for attack is his integrity and patriotism, and here, again, -Mr. Pinchot runs counter to the intelligence and hon esty of the people of Pennsylvania. There may have been times when, unled legislative election of senators, a small majority might be secured by questionable methods, but there never was and never will be a time in Penn sylvania or amy other slate/ when 519,000 votes can be corrupted in a secret ballot. "Mr. Pinchot's assumption is there fore absurd, especially in view of the fact that the Penrose plurality ex ceeded that accorded in Pennsylvania to Roosevelt for President in 1912, to Brumbaugh for governor in 1914, to Hughes for President in 1916, or to Knox for senator in 1916. No other Republican member of the finance committee is supported by so large a plurality. No other Republican mem ber of the committee defeated his nearest opponent by so large a pro portion of votes. portion of votes. "But^hat is not all. His ability and good character having been attested successively "by Harvard College, tbp supreme court of his state, his neigh bors, his state legislature and the peo ple of his state, he has passed and again must pass the scrutiny of his associates in the United State senate. Against these men, chosen by their constituents in their several states Mr. Pinchot would set his own judg ment. With a holier-and-wiser-1han thou attitude, he would dictate to the chosen representatives of the people, and do 1 it in th c name of solicitude for the welfare of the Republican party. He will find that the Republicans of the country have had enough of con troversies over individuals and that they are infinitely more interested in actual legislation than in the individ ual whose name, because of seniority of office and temporary position, and for convenience, happen» to be at the head of any bill congress may enact. For 35 years Mr. Penrose has strug gled and fought for the integrity, solidarity and supremacy of the Re publican party. "We hold no brief foe Mr. Penrose but we believe in truth, logic, Repub lican principles, and the integrity of the senate, which, under the Constitu tion, is the sole judge of the qualifi cations of its members." and Friday a son was born to Mr. Mr*. Hubert Newman. Take your sick watches and clocks to Laugh tin, the jeweler.Adv. — Nllll HOW «ED Subscriptions Exceed $15,000.00 With $20,000 in Sight—Success of Capitalization.

Bran. SOLDIERS HOLDING BLACK CANYON LAND NOTIFY DIST. Others Should Send in Names—May Have Effect in Securing Gov ernment Appropriations. The officers of the Black Canyon Irrigation Distinct want the names of every soldier and sailor holding land in the district. These names should be given to J. P. Newport, O. A. Cox, J. M.
