The ( loinoorntB are busily branding as
n lie tlio Btntotuout that they nro prepar
ing to ovorloolc tlio name of Populist
John Powers when It comes to marking
their ballots this full. They may deny
it nil right , but from past experience
with domoorntio denials there are many
who will wait for the evidence of the
returns before they nro prepared to bo
ilevo thnt the denials nro sincere.
Chancellor Andrews of the university
is certainly an exception to tlio genera
ran of men. Several mouths ago tlr
regents ottered him an ndvauco of $1,00' '
in salary to begin with the commence
inont of the school year. Recently th
chancellor notified the board that h
would not accept of the prolYorod ad
vance , alleging thnt the finances of th
school would not admit of an iucroasi
in snlnrics. The regents hnvo boo
forced to economize in all other depart
incuts of the university nud Mr. Andrews
drows does not propose to bo nu exco ] :
tion to the gouornl rule. The chnuoollo
is right but there are few men wh
would take the position ho has when an
advance of salary is ottered.
York county farmers nro worrying
not because they have not good crops ,
nor yet because there is no market for
their products at good prices but be
cause they fear that they will not bo
nblo to secure the help necessary to har-
rest their corn. They arc ottering noth
ing less than throe cents a bushel and
board for corn buskers , but oven at this
price they have not been nblo to secure
the help needed nud if the help cannot
be secured FOUIO of the crop will bo loft
in the field at n dead loss to the farmers.
If they will work for a return of Cleve
land times they will hnvo no trouble in
securing help nt n loss price thnn three
cents n bushel , but it cannot be guaran
teed that there would bo any money in
the crop as the price for the cereal would
be as certain to tumble as the price for
That intensely interesting story , the
delinquent tax list , is published this
week , or the first chapters of it. It will
continue to appear during the next three
weeks. The exhibit of delinquents
shows little increase over that of last
year , showing that a reasonable amount
of prosperity still prevails. Many of
the descriptions nre of property whose
owners are abundantly able to pay whnt
is due but have neglected to do so.
Others are held by out of town owners
who await this sort of notification to
learn how much they are owing , and
the number who are unable to pay is
small , so that the tax sale on the first of
November will not consist of any larg
amount of property. The published
list is but n little more than half of
what was shown in the good old Grover
days of IS'JO.
A democrntio exchange gives as the
reason General Prosperity is "stalking
over the state so conspicuously" is thai
the corn cribs and granaries are filled
with plenty. If the writer wonla de
vote some time to a study of condition !
ho would understand that this is no
the sole reason. Last season the corn
cribs and granaries were not filled to
any bursting degree and yet prosperity
"stalked. " Anyone without a failing
memory or who was old enough to
have n reasonable conception of event
will recall the fact that there was nn
ab.iudnnt crop during one or two years
of Grover's reign and yet prosperity did
not "btalk. " With corn at 8 and 10
cents , and other produce in proportion ,
there was no great cheer for the farmers
or the town people either. It takes
something more than good crops to
jnako good times.

It is announced from Washington
that if the coal strike IH not Hottlod soon
President HooHovolt will convene con
gress in special HOBilou and deal with
the situation in nn effective manner.
Tlio president Is again right. When
any man or Hot of men keep oil' the mar

or time , oxcord the limit In those modern
liij'H , especially when the people have
ho money and are willing to pay for

the mine owners and the workers have
rights that the people are bound to re

that they should bo bound to respect ,

that the mine owners have any more
right to tie up the fuel of the country HO
the people cannot got , it than nuy sot of
men would hnvo the right to tie up the

bo nblo to prevent it and undoubtedly
will if the people in the controversy c'o

Startli ' & Testimony is Given in
St. Louis Boodle Case.
Two Witnesses Swear That
Sums of Money Were Freely Dis
tributed In Securing Votes for Trac
tion Dill State Rests Its Case.
St. LoulH , Oct. 3. In the trial of
Robert M. Snyder , the banker nnd promoter
meter , charged with bribery In con
nection with the passage of the Cen
tral Traction bill , the state's ct5 was
practically submitted yesterday. Start
ling testimony was elicited , to the ef
fect thnt large sums of money had
been freely distributed In securing
votes for the hill. Probably the most
startling testimony of the day was
from Gcorgo J. Kohusch , president of
the St. Loulfi Car company. Ho said
ho was the man who Interested Sny
dcr In the Central Traction bill , that
ho dealt with councllinon through I2a-
gar A. Mophun and that ho sent money
throimh Mophan and that Mophan
was to bo paid $25,000 for his services.
Ho has nniuod some of the men who
got the money Carroll $17GOO , Gaus
$ 10,000 , Oast $10,000 , or nt the general
rate of $10,000 a head. Frederick O.
UthofT also unbosomed himself with
rather a llttlo confusion , yet ho named
largo sums of money with the same dl
redness and specified who paid and
who wnn paid. Uthoff said that Snyder
dor told him that If ho would Intro
duce a gas bill as a "rider" to the
Central Traction bill and work for Its
passage and vote for the Central Trnc
tlon bill ho would give witness $100 ,
Coal Operators and Strike Leader Wil
Get Together Today.
Wllkesbarre , Oct. 3. Preslden
Mitchell ot the United Mine Workers
accompanied by District Presidents
Nlcholls , Duffy and Pahey , lett here
last evening for Washington. It la
not known what policy the executive
boar.d of the miners' union will pur
sue at the coutereuce today with
President Roosevelt. Mr. Mitchell de
clined to express any opinion. All
ho would say was that he hoped for
the beat. The general feeling Is , how
ever , that President Roosevelt will
succeed in bringing both parties to
gether. The mining town of Plym
outh , which has been free from any
disturbance since the strike began ,
vas the scene of much disorder yes-
erday. Mobs surrounded the Stor
ing and North American washorles
and Sheriff Jacobs , being unable to
disperse them , summoned the mllltla.
Colonel Dougherty sent three com
panies of the Ninth regiment to the
scone and arrested eleven men ,
charged with rioting.
Will Not Treat With Mitchell.
Washington , Oct. 3. The Post says
that the coal presidents at today's
conference will decline to accept any
plan of strike settlement which pro
poses to treat with President Mitchell ,
nit that they have considered a tenta
tive plan , according to which "the
coal presidents will propose that the
men return to work with the under
standing that their grievances , as in
dividuals , shall be submitted to a
board of arbitration and that the coal
presidents will arree to abide by the
decision of this board , the members
of which shall be appointed by the
president. "
Strikers Attack Wrong Train.
Scranton , Pa. , Oct. 3. A crowd of
strikers at Throop were given a rather
unpleasant surprise party. They at-j

tained nonuulonlsts , but which , in

diers. The train was quickly stopped ,

eight of the mob , all foreigners. They
were sent to jail in default of $800
ball each.
