TWELVE PAGES. SCRANTON. PA FEBRUARY 10. 1894. REPUBLICAN STATE TICKET. TOR CONGRESS - AT - LARGE, HON. GALTJSHA A. GROW, Of Susquehanna County. ELECTION, TUESDAY. FEB. 20, 189. Grow as Speaker. CHon. W. S. Holman, Father of the House.) "J entered Congress in 1859, and served four years with Mr. Grow, he being speaker during the two last. We became well ac quainted, and a friendship was formed then which still continues. Grow was a good man, young, vigorous, and active. forcible in debate, and one of the best speakers we ever had. In the two years he was in the chair, years in which the most momentous questions in the nation's history presented themselves, he presided with such fairness, impartiality, and courtesy that I do not recall that there was ever a single appeal from his decisions." - No Quorum. It is not creditable to the Democrats that, in spite of their large majority in the house of representatives, business is frequently delayed for many hours because the dominant party cannot maintain a quorum. This is not, as many suppose, due to absenteeism. There has probably not been a day, since the reassembling of congress after the holidays, when there have not been enough Democratic representatives in "Washington to constitute ga quorum, and yet except when some such partisan bill as that repealing the federal election laws is to be acted on, the greatest difficulty is experienced in securing a quorum of the domin - antjparty. This is due to cowardice, tnot tojwholesale absenteeism. There are a very considerable number of Democrats in the house who seem to be acting with their party only under protest. This has been manifested so frequently as to attract attention. When ' the McCreary resolution, endorsing the Hawaiian policy of the administration, was before the house there was an exhibition of Democratic cowardice such as has seldom been witnessed. From forty to fifty Democratic representatives did their utmost to escape going upon record. They did not want to endorse the policy of infamy, but had not the courage to oppose the administration. The authority and power of the sergeant - at - arms had to be invoked to literally drag them into their seats. Once there, they reluctantly voted with their party. On Thursday, when Mr. Bland wanted to get his silver seigniorage bill before the house, the dodging tactics were again resorted to by a large number of Democrats, who, lacking the courage to vote their convictions, tried to escape a record. With a majority of nearly a hundred in the house the Democrats were four hours Securing a quorum, and then succeeded with the speaker'3 vote ODly as a margin. All this only goes to emphasize the fact that the nomirfant party has no policy, no line of action, no fixed purpose, no fully digested measures on any important question affecting the government. More particularly is this true with reference to the national finances, now the most important as well as the most urgent question with which congress has had to deal. There is probably not a single proposition that could be suggested for the relief of the treasury that could command the support of enough Democrats to pass it through congress. Why? Because the party in power has no policy. Neither the president nor the secretary of the treasury has come forward with a well defined policy. The secretary first denied that he had authority to issue bonds under the resumption act of 1875, next he appealed to congress to confer upon him authority to issue a new 3 per cent. bond. Congress paid no attention to the secretary's appeal, and next he announced his purpose to issue bonds under the 1875 act He sold such bonds to the amount of $50,000,000, and now he does not know whether he can us8 the money or not, and his own party in Congress declines to take any action for the relief of the socretary. Senator Teller on Thursday, in the senate chamber, upbraided the.Democrats for not bringing forward "some definite System of finance to meet the exigencies of the treasury. The truth is that the Democrats cannot agree on anything, and the leaders do not want important legislation anacted by the combined vote of the Republicans and a faction of the Democrats. That would only emphasize the incompetency of the party in power to govern the country. The factions of the house cannot agree on a policy, so one faction or the other breaks the quorum in order to prevent legislation. TnE Republicans of Philadelphia are more active than those of any other section of the state. Great mass meetings are the order of the day in Philadelphia, and the people are responding finely. There are predictions of from 50,000 to 70.000 majority for Grow in that city, and that is what the Republicans are working for. The United States Senate was not in session yesterday. Senator Voorhees, on Thursday, in making a motion to adjourn until Monday, gravely informed the senators that yesterday was Good Friday, and not one of them questioned his statement. Subsequently some one discovered the mistake, but the adjournment held good. Something of a joke on the senators. Governor Lewelliko does not feel so very b:idly overhis defeat by Mrs. Mary Ellen Lease. Ths latter can now be as saucy as she pleasei since the court has decided that the governor has no power to remove her from office. This decision, some Jfansas people fear, may pre - vent Mrs. Lease from carrying out ber project of emigrating to California and running a fruit ranche. At all events Mrs. Lease does not contemplate leaving Kansas until she has visited and inspected all charitable institutions. Truth From Democratic Sources. The New York Sun. in a column edi torial yesterday, points out the utter stupidity, absurdity and inconsistency of the McCreary resolutions adopted by the house with reference to the policy of our government toward Hawaii. The resolu tions declare, first, that "neither the an nexation of the Hawaiian Islands nor the assumption of a protectorate ovei them is expedient" If the resolutions had ended with that there would have been little cause for criticism, but the second clause absolutely contradicts the principle in volved in the first The second provides "that foreign intervention in the political affairs of the islands will not be regarded with indifference by the government of the United States." As the Sun very clearly points out, while the first clause declares point blank against a protecto rate, the second serves notice on foreign powers that we have constituted ourselves the protectors of the Hawaiian Islauds. The logic is incontestible. The two declarations are irreconcilable. In one sentence the house resolution squarely declares against a protectorate, and in the next a protectorate is virtually declared. But the Sun is not the only Democratic paper that takes up the McCreary resolutions and riddles them into fragments. The Philadelphia Record of yesterday, in an elaborate editorial, expresses their utter absurdity. It says: ' 'If ex - Minister Stevens deserves censure for interfering in the affairs of Hawaii, with what consistency can the resolution applaud this administration, which sent Minuter Willis to Honolulu to negotiate with the deposed Queen Liliuokalani for her restoration under the very nose of the actual government? Or with what grace can it be maintained that this administration upheld the honored principle of non intervention in presence of the fact that the American minister was under instruc tions to bring a pressure upon the provisional rulers to abolish in favor of the ex - queen, with the understanding that she would clemently spare their heads?'' The case could not be stated more clear ly than is done by these two leading Democratic journals. They demonstrate that the Democratic majority in the house have simply disgraced their own intelli gence, lowered their manhood, cast a re flection on their own independence and placed upon record the most illogical, inconsistent and absurd declaratiou that ever emanated from a house of represen tatives of the American congress. And, as the Record honestly admits, this wretched stultification was deemed neces sary "to cover a diplomatic retreat from an unwarrantable as well as an absurdly Quixotic attempt to set up Liliuakalani as the sorereign of the Saudwich Islands." It is refreshing to know that there are at least two pronounced Democratic newspapers in the land one in New York and the other in Philadelphia that have the courage to tell their readers the plain and unvarnished truth concerning the disgraceful action of their own party's representatives in congress, and to hold them up to the derision and contempt of the country. At least one Pennsylvania industrial plant will be busy for some time. The Phoenix ville Bridge company hns been awarded the contract for the bridge of the Southern Pacific railroad across the Mississippi river. The contract is for $5,000,000, and the work will be of steel. The Inner Iiife of Childs. Now that the philanthropist George W. Childs is dead it is hoped there will be no concealment of the good works he did during his life - time. It was his wish to avoid all publicity of his many charitable acts, and while he lived this wish was respected. Now that he has passed away there is no reason why much should not become known of that hidden side of his life with which only a fcry few of his most intimate friends were acquainted. George W. Childs wa3 a peculiar man. He kept from the world those things which if known would have reflected the greatest honor upon him. The average man conceals those things which are most to his discredit. His matchless liberality toward men in his employ is well - known. Employes, when worn out, were pen sioned and assured of ample provision while they lived, but his benefactions were not confined to those who had been or were in his employ. Although he has been dead only a few days, some of his benevolences, of which nothing was known to the world, are coming to light His good works were governed by a system and seemed to be a part of his everyday life. One fact, of which no one seems to have been cognizant before his death, is that he was educating sixty young girls exclusively at his own ex pense, and fitting them for usefulness in life. These girls are in many cases the daughters of mechanics who were unable to give them the advantages for which they seemed to be fitted. Doubtless Mr. Childs was assisted by others in whom he had confidence in selecting the subjects of his interest and solicitude. Ho made provision for completing the education of these sixty young girls. Who can measure the value of a single benevolence such as this? And it is only one of a great many. What may be called the "inner life'' of George W. Childs ought to be written for the good it may do. Its influence upon mankind would be felt He was one of the few who enjoyed wealth because it enabled him to be as generous with his purse as he was in his heart. The reported massacre of a body of French troops in Timbuctoo, coming so soon after a similar disaster to a body of English troops in another portion of Africa, would seem to imply that the natives are able to take care of themselves. These so - called massacres aro on a par with the destruction of Custer's command by the Sioux Indians. In each case the disciplined troops fell into a trap laid for them by the savages. The alleged plot to assassinate President Piexoto of Brazil will doubtless prove to be a canard, devised to in some way influence the presidential election to be held in that c mntry March 1. Piexoto is not a candidate for re - tlcction, and there seems to be some hope that the Mello Da Gama insurrection will collapse about the time the election occurs. Mello has from the first declared that the revo lution was against Piexoto and not against the republic. Brother Shearman's Experience. Hon. Thomas G. Shearman, not by any means unknown to fame, deemed it to be his duty tho other day to go to Gloversville, N. Y., for the sole purposes of explaining and defending the tariff bilL Gloversville, as is very generally known, is an industrial and manufacturing town, abounding in industries that have been built up under the fostering care of the protective" tariff system. The population of tin town seem to understand this, and just why Brother Shearman should have felt called upon to visit that town for the purpose of telling workiugmen all about the beauties of the Wilson bill is not quite clear. But go, he did. The local Democratic politicians had hired the opera house for the occasion, duly advertised the meeting, procured a brass band and extended a very cordial invitation to the workingmen to come and be enlightened. They came. There were several thousands of them. What followed seems to leave the impression that their object in going to the opera house was to convince Brother Shearman that they were as ready to give enlightenment as to receive it A good many of them have had their wages reduced since Brother Shearman's party came into power; others were in enforced idleness since the Democratic depression came upon the industries of Gloversville. In short, they were not in exactly the frame of mind to listen to the seductive arguments of free - trade. They had read the Wilson bill, discussed it among themselves, and pronounced it bad. Brother Shearman bad some intimation that a portion of his auditors would probably not agree with him, and he had not proceeded very far in his speech before he became thoroughly convinced that the whispers he had heard were well - founded. The meeting soon became very enthu siastic, but for obyious reasons the en thusiasm ran counter to the speaker. Mr. Shearman continued his speech and the "enthusiasm" soon became so great that he had to take his seat. Then the police were called in to restore order and con duct Mr. Shearman to his hotel. The fact of the matter is that the workingmeu of Gloversville were not in a frame of mind to listen with patience to a defense of the Democratic policy in national affairs that has reduced their wages, thrown many of them into idleness and threatens, if fully consummated, to permanently close up the industries upon which they depend for the support of themselves and their families. The violence of the workingmen of Gloversville on this occasion is perhaps not defensible on general principles, but some allowance must be made for men placed in their position. A year ago they were prosperous and happy ; they had an abundance of work and good pay. Then came Democratic agitation and threats to overthrow the protective tariff system, depression followed, business declined and reduction of wages and loss of em ployment was the result. These meu feltiusulted wheu asked to attend a meet ing and listen to a defense of the policy that had brought misery upon them. That is all that can be said about it. BRIEF COMMENTS. No time has been lost in ascertaining that the income tax, if imposed, will not reach the salaries of the president of the United States and the judges of the federal courts. These officials can, therefore, rest easy; they will escape. Conoheseman Quioq has taken his seat in the house, and has the distinguished honor of being the first Republican to rep resent a New York city district in fourteen years. The candidates for president and vice - president of Brazil, to be voted for at the election on March 1, have just been nominated. The Brazilians don't know how to "run" politics. The poor old Kearsarge of honored memory has at last been wrecked in foreign waters. She deserved a better fate. Mrs. Lease will be heartily congratulated on her victory over Lewelling. Tho country cares little for Mrs. Lease, but less for Lewelling. Chauncey Forward Black has been attending a national convention of Democratic clubs at Washington. This is all the happiness Mr. Black gets out of politics these days. President Cleveland lost no time signing the bill repealing the federal election law. At last Mr. Cleveland has done something the New York Sun can endorse. Senator Teller was undoubtedly right the other day when he declared that the country would hold the dominant party responsible for its failure to bring forward some definite system of finance to meet the deficiency in the treasury. But that is not all the party in power will be held responsible for. It has made an all - around failure. The Democrats in the house have hard work to ke p a quorum of their own in their seats, and the Republicans are so mean as not to help them out of their troubles. The late George W. Childs made his bequests while he lived, and his widow will continue the work now that he is dead. There will be no contested will in this case. PRESS OPINIONS. Or Course He Supports Galugha A. Grow And Protection. From the Philadelphia Press. There is nothing remarkable in the announcement that ex - General Master Workman Powderly, of the Knights of Labor, has declared himself for Galusha A. Grow. The fact that Mr. Powderly doeB not have that prominent official relation with the Knights which he held for so many years has not deprived him of his interest in the cause of the workingman, and he knows that the policy and the party which Mr. Grow represents are the only safe reliance of the workingmen at a time when the party in power at Washington is seeking to pull down wages industries and prosperity, ft would be unnatural if Mr. Powderly were not for Mr. Grow, and he will be followed by every working.nan in Pennsylvania who is opposed to hard times. ALABAMA'S DANDER UP. From the Birmingham Age - Herald (Dem.) Let the senate committee know that the business men and manufacturers of the s mt!i are not lulled to sleep by the opiate of official patronage, or intimidated by the administration's displeasure. LEGAL thieves. From the New York Tribune. Judge Prvor used some stinging words on Thursday in denouncing the abuses of the referee system as sometimes practised. Iu a mechanics iien suit ior omy $138, the referee had charged 100 for ten sittings, $25 for deciding the case, and S125 for adjournments. The judge cut down this outrageous bill, but the failure of counsel to object to such exorbitant charges prevented so extensive a reduction as was desirable. What does the community think of a referee capable of putting in such a bill in such a case, and of a lawyer who made no objection? AN HONEST DEMOCRATIC OPINION. From the Philadelphia Record (Dem.) There is no cunning of phrase that can shake the truth in regard to this diplomatic blunder. If it be conceded, though it has by no means been clearly established, that ex - Aiinister Stevens did interfere in behalf of the revolutionists, there is no dispute that Minister Willis interfere under positive instructions, in behalf of the deposed dynasty.
