Clearfield Progress (Newspaper) - May 26, 1914, Clearfield, Pennsylvania THE CLEARFIELD PROGRESS Volume VIII Clearfield, Pennsylvania, Tuesday, May 26, 1914 SAVE THE STATE FROMJISCREDIT New York Republican Paper Oe- SHOULD UNITE ON PINCHOT Mew York Tribune Declares Pen- rose's Election Wowld.be a Costly Victory to the Republican Says All Citizens Should Unite to Elect Mr. Pinchot. The New York Tribune, the his- toric national organ of the Republi- can, party since the days of Greeley; consistent supporter of Republican (nominees, and the leading .newspaper advocate of the candidacy of Taft in 1912, prints the following editorial under the caption, "Pennsylvania Should Unite on Pinchot to Defeat Penroselsm." Mr. Penrose should be beaten. It will be a bad thing for public JUte in America if the forces which lie represents triumph in the Penn- sylvania eenatorship contest. It will he a ruinous thing for the Republi- can party If Mr. Penrose and his kind come to the front in it once more. Save Stats from Discredit. His defeat will save the state of Pennsylvania from the discredit of unworthy representation in the Unit- ed States senate. It will stem the tide of reaction of which his victory in the primaries is an ominous sign. And the Republican party will be stronger when it enters the next na- tional campaign with Penrose in the background rather than in the fore- ground. The party must keep faith with the public if it is to have any hope of regaining its vigor. It must reject reactionary leadership everywhere and at all times. Challenge to Progressives. This recrudescence of Penrose is a challenge to the progressive ele- ment In the Republican party There must be no compro- mise with the forces of reaction. The party's house must be thoroughly cleaned and the party completely re- organized. If a real tight is not made if drastic steps are not taken, tbe old machine will be found, as in Pennsylvania, to have profited by the undeniable swing away from President Wilson and to be as firmly intrenched in power as it was when It brought the party to disruption in 1912. The Issue a Big One. It is because the issue Is so big, so vitally important to the country and to the party, that the Tribune has no sympathy with the cowardly counsels that have prevailed inPenn- rrjasmln and that have enabled Pen-' to win his victory at the pri- j maries. It has been argued there that Pen- rose represented the best chance of success at the election, that he had the machine and the support of the Newspapers in Philadel- phia which were supposed to stand for Independinece of machine have kept silent, either at the bidding of the forces behind Mr. Penrose or for fear of impairing the Republican par- ty's chances. Hopes for Pinchot's Election. The selfish interests may profit oy Penrose's success, but it will be a costly victory for the Republican par y which brings him forward as an embodiment of Us aims and an Index of its character. The Tribune hopes that Pennsylva- nia will elect Gifford Pinchot, the candidate of the Progressive party, as Us senator. He is a worthier can- didate than the man chosen at the Democratic primaries. The necessity for defeating Penrosjeism transcends all partisan consideration Opposi- tion to it should not be divided The Democratic candidate ought to with All citizens, irrespective of party affiliations, should unite in sup of Mr. Pinchot TEMPERANCE WORKER SAFE. Large Crowd Greets the Rev. Mr. Pat- mont, Kidnaped March 31. Danville. 111.. May large crowd greeted tbe Rev.

Wholesale Traffic at Kaiser's Palace Alleged by Socialist Leader. Berlin, May government or- 3ered a rigid Investigation of alleged wholesale traffic in German titles, as charged In the Vorwaerts by Herr Llebknecht, Socialist leader In the relchstag. Llebknecht declared that the prices of titles ranged upward from for the right to have "professor" before one's name to for a title of no- bility. The article said that the can dldates met mysterious women In an obscure bakery near the palace and by them were conducted by a private en- trance into the palace, where they bought tbe titles from a retired official of the household of tbe empress.

His entire fortune was left to bla widow. Close friends of Mr. Mayo say his fortune will amount to at least ROOSEVELT WILL GALL ON WILSON Visit la White House Is Taken to Ba Sipilicant. Washington, May Roosevelt will see President Wilson at the White House Tuesday afternoon. The president let it be known that hu had invited the of Oyster Bay" to have luncheon with him, but Colonel Roosevelt discovered that he would not have time. He will, however, go to the White House before lecturing on his Brazilian discovery before the Na- tional Geographic society. While it was announced that the visit will be one of courtesy, the very fact that Roosevelt Is going to the White House caused some comment among politicians. Itoosevelt's already avowed opposition to the Wilson Pan- ama tolls policy and the administra- tion's proposed Colombian treaty was expected to stand iu the way of a White House call. The president extended an invita- tion, however, and it is possible that as a result of tbe visit some of the Roosevelt opposition may not be so forceful as it otherwise would. The visit of Colonel Roosevelt to Washington has already shoved all oth- er issues into the background. While the colonel has announced that he will not take up for serious consideration political Questions until after his return from Spain, loaders here hope to get him at least to consider a plan of ac ilnn for the fall campaign Remsnyder-Leech.

Stores Closed as Citizens Expect Fighting In Streets of Mexico City at Any Time. Vera Cruz, May General Blanquet, minister of war, openly de- fying General Huerta and the dictator meekly submitting, while business houses in the capital are barricaded, foreigners in Mexico City sent word here that they believed Huerta might not last through the week. The brea.k between Huerta and bis war minister came with the discovery of an alleged plot against the provi- sional president. Almost beside him- self with rage when he discovered that his subordinates were in league against him, Huerta hurried to Bel em peni- tentiary, where 100 political prisoners were coiinued, and ordered their exe- cution. He told the jailer to lead the 100. suspected of connection with the plot, outside aud shout them against the wall. Secret Telephone to Blanquet. The prison keeper secretly telephon- ed to BlanqOAit, who was in bed. The war minister went posthaste to the penitentiary tu an automobile. He called Huerta outside and then ordered the prisoners returned to their cells "You must stop this killing of your supposed enemies if you want me to stand by you In this Blanquet told the dictator, and, to the groat as- tonishment of the prison officials, Huerta meekly allowed Blnnquet to countermand his order for the execu- tion of the prisoners and fled to one of his favorite rafes. Blanrjtiet is said by refugees to be the mini of the hour in Mexico City, and should a crisis come it is believed that he will take charge and attempt to send Huerta out of the country. Fifteen French cannon have been placed in Cbnpultepee castle, where, it is said. Huerta will make bis last stand if he is unable to escape The situation in the capital is elec- trical with tensions. Almost all of the shop windows have beeu boarded up for the last three days in anticipation of street fighting. The store doors are ready to be locked and on a moment's notice, and customers do their shopping by lamplight. Terrified by Approach of Villa.
