WE DENOUNCE PROTECTION AS A FRAUD, A KOUDEKY OF THE GREAT MAJORITY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FOR THE HENEFIT OF THE FEW. -National Democratic Platform. While llines is denying all connection for iay, with the tariff schedule in behalf of the Hazard Company, why does he not deny the story current in the mouths of everyone, that he was heavily paid by the lace mills for work done in their behalf? This is not an insinua tion, hut a matter that is boldly talked of and bruited about the streets. lf*. -It. Ncwsilealer. Hines so far forgot his duty to his party as to accept an attorney fee from a lace company that wanted higher duties oil imported luce curtains. As congressman he voted for the Wilson bill, but as the paid attorney of a lace manufacturing company he lobbied for in creased duties on imports. When a man of that character implies dishonesty in others it is a trick to divert attention from his own moral turpitude.— Wllltea-Barie Record. "RuceCurtain Hines"!

Rice has developed in his tour through the county lias created consternation among the friends of his opponent, and it seems that nothing is too desperate now for them to undertake, if it will help to de feat him. The latest rumor is to the effect that Mr. Rice "sold out" his fel low employes in the late Lehigh Valley Railroad strike. It has been circulated everywhere by his enemies, but as no body will father the lie it lias been hard for Mr. Rice to discover who was the originator of the slander. The follow ing official letter from the New Jersey board of arbitration and meditation is worthy of voters' attention, and its con tents are a crushing refutation that the candidate for clerk of courts was disloyal to his fellow-workmen: State of New Jersey, Board of Meditation and Arbitration. Trenton, October SO, 1804. John 11. lilce, Esq., Wilkes-Barre, I'a. My Dear Sir.—l am in receipt of your com munication of tbo lltli inst., and personally must express my surprise that the charge of "selling out" the men in the settlement of the Lehigh Valley strike, is made against you. Nothing is further from the truth. If you were charged with having been extraordinary zealous iu the cause, and doing your utmost for the best interests of the mon, your merit would be properly recognized. Your letter was laid before the board of arbitration of the state, and, by resolution passed unanimously, 1 urn instructed to say to you officially that the manner in which the negotiations were carried on, and the methods followed to effect a settlement of that unfor tunate struggle, rendered it impossible for you or any other person connected with the strike to commit a single act detrimental to the old employes' interests without the knowledge of the members of the state boards, us they acted absolutely between the committee and grand officers, who were all assembled there, and the Lehigh Company. The attitude of the officers of the company towards the men and tiieir representatives at the time, atone, is sufficient to satisfy any unprejudiced man of the falsity of the charge made against you. l'roiu the time the two boards took hold of the ease, you and your committee acted con jointly with the grand officers of the several branches comprising your brotherhood, and the arbitration boards of New Jersey and New York states, and all engaged in the effort did their utmost to obtain the best terms for the old employes and they, nor any one else should be so ungrateful as to denounce a single in dividual who was instrumental in effecting a settlement of such un apparently hopeless case. You should receive the commendation and support of all the people in your section of the state for the loyulty you manifested and for the manly stand you took for the proposed recognition and reinstatement of the old men. You are at liberty to use all or any portion of this lettor wherein you think it will correct the injustice unwarrantably done you, and if there is unything further this board can do to vindicate you and your committee, please indicate same as it will afford the members pleasure, In this, as in all similar instances, to place tle credit where is properly belongs. Yours respectfully, Jno. W, Komunie, secretary. Three Costly Mistakes. The three congressional districts in the anthracite region would return three Democratic congressmen under ordinary circumstances, hut the candidates who have been placed upon the tickets this year are not the kind to arouse much enthusiasm. In Luzerne, the nominee has been accused of being anything but a Democrat and an honest man; in Lack awanna, Candidate Merriman poses, it is said, as a protectionist, and in Schuyl kill Congressman Reilly's time is occu pied in telling about the Hazard wire works' bribe and his shady connection with Northern Pacific Railroad affairs. Had the Democrats named three free traders, who would go before the people on the national platform, success in each of the districts would be certain. Some More Inside History. From the Wilkes-Barre Telephone. There is another instance cited to show more of the mercenary methods and political treachery resorted to by Mr. Hines toward his party and his friends, which if true ought to merit the most severe condemnation of every Democratic voter within the district. It is asserted by several prominent Demo crats, who profess to be familiar with all the facts and details, that Congressman llines sadly overreached himself in an effort to share the spoils incident to the appointment of internal revenue collec tor for this district last winter. Among the aspirants were T. M. Conniff, of Plains. Kx-C'ounty Treasurer John S. McGroarty was also mentioned and se cured considerable encouragement from party leaders as a suitable candidate for the position. The other two rival aspir ants were Grant Herring, of Bloomsburg, the present incumbent, and Ex-Deputy Collector Staples, of Monroe county. As the story goes it appears that Presi dent Cleveland delayed considerable time in making the appointment in hopes that Mr. Ilines and his colleagues might agree. Finally, during the course of events, it is stated that Mr. McGroarty refused to enter into an agreement with Congressman llines by which the latter was to receive a stated percentage of the emoluments of the office and control of certain subordinate positions. This caused Mr. McGroarty to withdraw, hence Congressman Ilines was thus en abled to devote all his efforts and inllu ence to secure the collectorship for T. M. Conniff. It is generally supposed that Ilines did his "little best," so to speak, to secure the coveted place for his friend, but it seems the method by which he could be successfully checkmated was too well understood by the backers of Grant Herring and Deputy Collector Staples. It is more than hinted at by Demo crats in position to vouch for the truth of their statements that when the ap pointment of Conniff had been practi cally agreed to by President Cleveland, a shrewd emissary from Monroe or Car bon county was sent to privately consult with Congrgssman Hines and make cer tain overtures in the interest of Staples. All that transpired is of course known only to those Democrats in the district to whom Staples doubtless divulged the facts. However, it is at present a matter of political hearsay that Congress man Hines was offered the control of several appointments including chief clerk, chief deputy, guagers, etc., besides a divvy of $2,000, provided that under a certain contingency that might arise he would agree to the appointment of Staples as internal revenue collector. This proposition was at first rejected by Hines with utter contempt. He in formed the agent of ex-Collector Staples that he had every reason to be assured that Conniff would get the appointment in a few days. And in that event he (Hines) would receive $2,500 and the privilege of selecting the men to fill all the minor positions. If, however, he could be convinced that there was any such contingency to arise as would de feat Conniff, he was not opposed to sup porting Staples in preference to Grant Herring, provided Staples could increase the divvy to $3,000. This ended the private consultation and the agent who had cleverly accomplished the object of his mission departed with a written promise obtained from Congressman Hines that he was prepared to fulfill his part of the contract. But unexpected results are quite com mon in modern politics. It proved soiu this instance. The letter of Congressman Hines by some unexplained means came into possession of ex-Senator Eekley B. Coxe, of Drifton, and ex-State Chairman FJliot P. Kisner, of Hazleton. These two influential Democrats, being both active and staunch friends of Grant Herring, at once exposed the letter to President Cleveland showing Congress man Hines up in bad shape as a political gambler and boodler. The result was that Grant Herring, of Bloomsburg, was immediately appointed collector of internal revenue for the district, and T. M. Conniff and his host of warm personal friends were added to the number of hard-working Democrats in Luzerne, who have been victims of misplaced confidence and duplicity on the part of the self-seeking little con gressman, who will after the Gth of No vember be relegated to private life with the privilege of resuming a pettifoging practice in the courts and occasionally writing himself down as ex-llon. W. 11. Hines, counselor-at-law. A OueHtion. \\ e do not propose, because we are a Democrat, to he bullied or driven into an open advocacy of inen who are not only traitors to the party thev represent, hut who have violated every obligation in their dealings with their fellow men. Such men ought to be thankful that we have drawn the mantle of charitable silence over them, and that being unable to say aught in their defense have wise ly and discreetly, for them, remained dumb.— Newsdealer. About a month ago the TRIBUNE was called to time very quickly by the Newsdealer for stating that there was a candidate on the Democratic ticket who deserved defeat. We were asked to name the man, and we promptly com plied with the request. The TRIBUNE is now anxious to know the names of the candidates who are traitors and have violated every obligation with their fel low men. We know the Newsdealer will answer and now await its reply. POLITICAL PICKUPS. Freeland Democrats ought to give the Democratic state candidates and the orators who accompany them a rousing reception at 2 o'clock on Thursday after noon. Their tour has been one continued ovation since their trip began, and the people here, irrespective of party, should see that Freeland's welcome is as hearty as that tendered them in any other town in Pennsylvania. It is an honor to have such an aggregation of talent in the town, even for a short while, therefore let all help to give the distinguished visitors a good impression of Freeland by tendering them a cordial welcome. "When Hines pays the obligations that are charged against him on our books we will place his name at the head of our columns" is the reply of the Newsdealer to the Leader's insinuations that Sam Boyd dare not print the con gressman's name en the editorial page. You are going to have a long wait Sam, if precedents count for anything. But perhaps he'll remember us all in his will and leave the publishers of the county a few blocks of P. L. &E. stock. Live on in hopes. During his visit to New York last week President Cleveland did not give his opinion of the contest in that state, neither did he register as a voter. Not being registered he cannot vote, and his action is considered as a notice that he will not support or aid 11 ill for governor. The president's action is the subject of considerable criticism. Billy Hines should call off those of his friends who are predicting that certain saloonkeepers will not get licenses next year unless they turn in and work for the congressman. That kind of politics is too far behind the age to have any weight around Freeland, but it shows how desperately a drowning man will grasp at a straw. The Democratic, Republican and Popu list candidates for congress in the fourth New Jersey district seperately refused the support of 1,200 members of the A, P. A. in that district, which could be had by the one signing the orders' anti- Catholic circular. The Prohibition can didate then signed it. Knowing ones predict that Jacob Shappert, the candidate for prothono tary, will have the largest majority on the county ticket. Peter A. O'Boyle is counted upon as a close second, with Judge Rhone and John Rice a short distance behind, but a long ways ahead of their opponents. The Philadelphia Record has caused the arrest of eighteen assessors in that city for placing false names on the registry lists. It is expected that at least 30,000 false names, which were added to the lists in the interest of the Republicans, will be taken off by orders of the court. There is not a Republican in East Foster, nor Democrat either, for that matter, who can conscientiously vote for W. 11. Jeffrey for the legislature, lie grossly deceived them before, and as an office-holder is therefore unworthy of their confidence now.— White Haven Journal. District Attorney Gurman and Revenue Collector Herring upheld their reputa tions last week as public speakers in the western part of the state. They are with the state candidates and will be here on Thursday. Candidates Singerly and Hastings will change platforms at Norristown on Sat urday night, after speaking before their own audiences. To some of his county seat friends Hines has been telling that he invited the editor of the TRIHUNE to the stage to discuss his (llines') record with him at the Democratic meeting here recently. We are sorry to hear that Billy has takeh to lying again, but that is an old habit which clings to him. Maj. J. M. Carson, the Washington correspondentof the Phi lade] phia/.ff/ycr, who recently spent several days in this district, had a column in that paper on Friday on the Luzerne political outlook. The major gives it as his opinion that Hines will run far behind his ticket and will be defeated. He is one of the most conservative writers in the country, and his political predictions are seldom known to go wrong. John J. McNelis is making a splendid fight for representative, and is untiring in his efforts to make the fourth district Democratic by a decisive majority. On a straight party vote the lower end is good for at least 500, and there is no reason why the Democratic candidate should not receive that majority at least. Considering the assurances of Republi can support he has received, it is hard to see how lie can be defeated. Don't Forget tlie State Ticket. The Democrats of Luzerne should not fail to vote for the party's candidates for congressmen-at-large, Messrs. Meyers and Collins. They are the only congres sional candidates on the ticket in this county who are opposed to the principles of protection, and for that reason alone let every Democrat do his duty by giving them his earnest support. Their chances for election are by no means hopeless. The enthusiasm that haß been aroused through the state by the trip of Candi date Singerly will have an appreciable effect on-election day, and if anything like the full Democratic vote is polled the state tieket can be elected with ease.

Representatives of tiie Newsdealer have examined the records in the district at torney's oilice and other departments of the courthouse, and the results of the investigations are certainly alarming. The official records sliow that in 1889, the first year of A1 Darte's second term as district attorney, the cases tried were 1,223, of which the number who pleaded guilty or were convicted was 112, and each conviction cost the taxpayers the sum of $510.50. In twelve years he has handled before the orphans' court, where he aspires to be judge, three cases. In eight years he has represented fourteen cases in the common pleas court, of which cases lie lost five; won with the aid of associate counsel, four; cases settled, tiro, and that remain undisposed of, three. Such is the record of Alfred Darte, who asks the aid of Luzerne voters to place him on the orphans' court bench instead of Judge Rhone, the acknow ledged authority on orphans' court law in the United States. Will the voters consent to a change in this very important branch of our county judiciary? Will the men who have little estates to leave to their families and friends consent to place them in the hands of one who, as shown by the official records, is incompetent even as an attorney? tin* Alligator.
