A BCAXXELL AM) HARKS.
Fire Commissioner Scannell and his friend.
William L. Marks, have at last been indicted by
the grand Jury for conspiracy to compel mer
chants to sire Marks a commission on poods
sold to the Fire Department The impossibility j
of aelHne certain kinds of goods to the city ex
cept through Marks has long been a public
scandal. More than a year ago the treasurer
cf the La France Fire Engine Company made a
statement to the Controller that, belns in doubt
whether Marks or his former partner. Castle.
"was the proper person to receive the -Takeoff"
on contracts with the city, he went to Scaunell
and asked him to designate the proper channel
of approach to his department, and Scannell
answered: "I'm not In the habit of talking
"about matters of this kind, but I will not do
"any business with Mr. Castle." and then added
that Marks was "all right."
For year evidence has been in possession^
the Controller that dealers in Fire Department
foppllci who had long been doing business
<wlth the city were perfectly convinced that
they —it employ Marks to hold their trade,
borne refused to do so. and found that Scannell
would no longer purchase from them, but shut
them — from bidding by changing the adver
tisements so as to exclude their goods. Some.
who had agreements with rival* to sell to cities
at a uniform price, when they found It ne<-««ssarv
to employ Marks to pave the way to Seaiineir*
favor gave him nearly all their profits as a
"rakeoff" rather than lose the prestige of sell
tag to Kew-Tork City. Others, who were l»ound
by no such agreement, made the taxpayers
•Mad "rakeoflT by adding the commission
for Scanuells friend to the regular price at
which they had sold to the city before, and were
ready to continue felling If they were not com
pelled to transact their business through Marks.
All this and much more was perfectly well
known for a long time, but nothing was done
About It. Of course, everybody knew that if
Scannell and Marks were working together, the
one using his power in the Fire Department to
make merchants pay tribute to the other, they
Mere committing a crime. Likewise everybody
felt morally certain that an understanding be
tween them did in fact exist, but nobody seemed
to think It possible to secure legal proofs of the
conspiracy, though the formal statements to
the Controller themselves 1..;,:.: case snflicli'nt
for the consideration of a grand Jury, and It
might reasonably have lwen expected that
diligent inquiry would have developed ad
ditional facts to establish the corrupt undor
standing so unmistakably ...... .by the ,
ilsvit*. Finally, the charge* in the newspapers
became so explicit that the District Attorney
took them up and indictments have boon •e
It is, of course. Impossible to predict • ... re
•nlu of a trial. The fact that Mr Samuel H.
Ortway, « lawyer of experience In meeting the
wile* ot offl<-«Lolders for evading law, l, a > been
called Into the case inspires confidence that no
blunder* have been made which «vill let the
prosecution fall on technicalities, and that no
effort will be spared to put all possible evidence
of the conspiracy In the strongest way before a
Jury. There is not tbe slightest doubt that tbe
whole city government is honeycombed with
corriii'fion. and it is probable that if merchants
and others who regularly Fubmlt to extortion
srere once assured that their evidence would
really part a stsp to the practice, and not merely
Bttke it impossible for them to do business
henceforth, they would in large numbers assist
In clearing the rascals out. At present the vic
tims do not dare to complain, and one of the
most effective Srorks which any body of reform
ers could do would be to gain the confidence
of the <-orporations and business men forced to
protect themselves by paying tribute, and learn
their secrets under arrangement to make the
transactions public only when taken altogether
they furnished proof« which wonld secure pun
(shnsent of guilty officials and freedom from the
UactanafHac system. So long fls Tammany
can hold respectable people at Its mercy its
overthrow will be extremely difficult, for many
men who would like to oppose it fear to do so.
They should l>e freed by some movement making
it possible for them to turn on their blackmail
ers without destroying themselves. The indict
ment of Scannell and Marks should be only a
beginning of the attack on the system of using

HAWAII AXl> STATEHOOD.
The folly of establishing a Territorial govern
ment with practically universal suffrage among
¦ people untrained to the exorcise of political
power has been conclusively illustrated In
Hawaii by the doings of Incompetent legislators
and mischief making demagogues. The experi
ment has resulted ill conditions which It is evi
dent cannot permanently he endure*], and many
schemes are being exploited for superseding
the present establishment. One of those la for
annexing- the Islands to the State of California.
We are surprised to see. in n recent dispatch
from our San Francisco correspondent, that so
able and original a man as Dr. David Starr
Jordan has lately announced his adhesion to
Such a solution of the difficulty would be a
case of Jumping out of the frying pan Into the
fire. If a people are incompetent to exorcise
the limited powers of self-government in local
affairs permitted them by Congress in an or
ganized Territory, it Is Impossible to suppose
them capable of exercising the practically un
limited powers of self-government and the right
of participating In the rule of the whole country
possessed by citizens of a sovereign State. Dr.
Jordan has hitherto been known as an oppo
nent of any policy of expansion. It is not easy
to believe that he has now fully considered the
reasonable objection to Tapal. Moro, Kanaka
and West Indian partnership In the settlement
of American questions, and Is really ready
to take the first step toward conferring State
hood upon these outside islands, which could
only result In the admission of the entire outfit
Just as soon as the politicians of any party
could arrange to use their votes in a national
convention and campaign.
It is the first step that counts. Either we are
going to have all of these peoples in their ig
norance nnd multness for American citizenship
introduced Into our electorate and made instru
ments of unscrupulous men to rule us. or we
are going once and for all to establish the prin
ciple that the union of States is an American
union and a continental union, and that its
character is not to be changed by the Incorpora
tion into our citizenship of every semi-civilized
or barbarous tribe which may chance at any
time to come under our sovereignty. only by
drawing the line now In fixing the status of our
first extra-continental possessions and saying
that the States which make up the I'nlted
States shall be confined to the continent can any
effective resistance be made to the pressure of
selfish interests for the lowering of our standard
and the admission of less and km tit people to
participation in our government. The cowards
of politics, of course, hesitate to meet this
question of the proper treatment of dependen
cies in a straightforward fashion, being afraid
of the misrepresentation of opponents deluding
the Ignorant with catchwords. Bui It Is the
duty of thoughtful patriots to face this Issue
squarely, oonoedo nothing to -seekers, over
come prejudice and establish while there Is yet
time the safe rule for the preservation of Amer
Evidently a mistake has already boon made
in giving Hawaii a Territorial organization and
encouraging it ultimately to expect admission
as a State. In view of what the Kanakas are
perfectly well known to be. the Ides of magni
fying that mistake by making the islands a
State or part of a State is grotesque. It Is
reckless almost beyond belief. So long as Con
press retains control bad conditions are subject
to correction. A government that breaks down
can be superseded Just the same as unsatis
factory or extravagant governments have been
in the District of Columbia. But once make the
Hawaiiaus citizens of a State, and they can
manage their islands as scandalously as they
please, and as much In defiance of national in
terests, Just as the Mormons have done in rtah.
Hawaii is a strategic point of national impor
tance, and the Federal government must there
keep effective control and undivided authority
for all emergencies, Just as it would do at any
other of Its forts or coaling Stations. Hawaii as
part of California would be Just as troublesome
as if It were » State by Itself. It would partici
pate not only in the government of the United
States, but also In that of California. Local
abuses would l»o beyond nny practical control
either by State or nation. California has Its
own Interests to attend to, nnd nil legislation
on Hawaiian affairs would depend entirely on
the selfish uses which politicians could make
of the Hawaiian electors In imposing their
Rchemes on California. The inhabitants of
Hawaii are Justly entitled to such measure of
self-government as they show they can wisely
use, but Congress cannot afford to abdicate its
complete ultimate authority, particularly In
view of their demonstrated need of guardian
ship. A people who cannot manage a Terri
torial government properly cannot bo trusted to
help govern the nation as rulers of n State or
part of a State.
THE XEW TENEMENT HOUSE LAW.
The new tenement house law which will go
Into effect on Monday ought to bring about a
great change In tenement district conditions
vastly beneficial to the poorer classes who are
obliged to live there, as well as prntifylns to
all persons who are inter. ( in the safety of
human life and In the honor of the city. The
law is very nearly a model of sensible reform
legislation. It was drawn In the light of a
thoroughly practical knowledge of the condi
tions which it was Intended to Improve, and
cure was taken to avoid Including in the law
provisions which could not he complied with or
which It was not reasonable to ask builders
and the owners of tenement houses to obey.
The Tenement House Commission, which drew
the law, went about its work In a spirit which
won at once the approval and confidence of the
public, and the law was passed by the legis
lature without substantial change.
The n«»w law alms to give to the dwellers in
the tenements ns much light and air as It Is
possible to procure for them under conditions
practical this me; to s ive them a reason
NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUKfc, SATURDAY. JUNE 29. 1901.
ahle protection from fire, and to drive nway
from them the demoralizing taint of vice and
immorality. The commission wisely did not
attempt impossible things, and the amount of
light and air required hy the new law is not so
great as extremists would demand, but happily
the law is capable of enforcement, which it
would not have heen bad the demands been
more extreme, and its enforcement will be sure
greatly to improve the material condition of
many persons. The same is true as to the mat
ter of flreprooflng. It would be a natural impulse
to demand that all tenements be rendered fire
proof, for the protection of the lives of the
inmates; but the commission wisely rejected
such a proposal, and confined itself to erecting
such safeguards as seemed to be practical.
The most drastic feature of the new law is
that part relating to the social evil in the tene
ments. The evil results of this form of vice
existing as openly ns it must exist if carried
on in tenement houses are beyond calculation.
In order to cleanse the poorer districts of this
evil it is prov'ded in the law that women con
victed of immoralities in tenement houses shall
be punished, not by the familiar fine, but by
imprisonment as vagrants. The landlord of
the tenement house is also lield responsible i?
hr consents to improper use of his premises,
and ho Is deemed to have so consented if he
does not begin summary proceedings of eviction
within five days after being Informed by the
Health Department of the Improper use.
There Is ground for the utmost satisfaction
that so good and practical a reformatory law
was secured. The important point now will be
to see that it Is enforced, and no one is better
fitted to aid In securing enforcement than the
dwellers in the tenement houses themselves.
ROOM FOR FREIGHT CAMS.
The establishment of a system of express or
frrijrlit cars for the conveyance of merchandise
on the street railways of this city Is an inter
esting development of the local transportation
problem. T!ii v lit-*' of them can was run on
Thursday. <>n Monday next the "formal open-
Ing" of the service will I>e effected, and the
number of cars will be Increased from four to
t«n. with il.i 1 . prospect of furtbej Increase in
future to meet the requirements of business.
There is every reason to expect that the enter
pris«- will be a profitable one. :in<l it will un
doubtedly prove :i convenience and an advan
tage to a large i>:irf of the public, assuring a

It will also he rather it is ¦ most instructive
commentary upon the contention of tbe Metro
politan Street Railway Company that it is now
giving The lie<t possible Service to passengers.
The company declares that II is now running as
many passenger cars as It is physically possible
to run. nn<l therefore that It is physically Impos
sible to give better accoiiiiiioii.it ion«. to provide
more seats for passenger* and to obviate the
abominable practice of standing between the
seats of open cars. "Impossible to run more
cars'" Yet here If is finding it possible to run
more cars, not for passengers, but for freight.
True. It Is nt present for only a few. But it would
certainly i»' Jus< a^ possible to run a few four
or ten additional passenger pars as to run that
number of freight car-. And every one nurta
extra passenger car would mean fifty or sixty
more passengers provided with peats mnl saved
from the Indecent physical nssatiltn now daily
perpetrated upon that company's patrons with
the company's approval and connivance. And
If it la possible to run these four or ten more
i':irs where we were solemnly assured it was
impossible to run one more, how do we know It
would not be possible to run forty more or n
The fad Is, of course. tl..it the company easily
finds room for more c.-ir<. where it declared
there was no room, because !' Bees In them a
source of additional profit, it does not put on
extra patwenger ears because In them there
would be no protit. That is the cns<> n n nut
shell. If by patting on more passenger ran it
could secure more passengers, aiwl therefore
more nickels, it would do so without ;>n hour's
delay. But as long ss it lias enough oars In
DSC to carry DO matter how uncomfortably
and Indecently nil the people who franl to r!«|e
it will not put on more It is nintiitii: cam to

enrichment. And by this latest performance it
cynically advertise* to the world the fact that

if it would, but It will not.
PEXXHYLYA VI IN .1 PrORTIOX
Before adjourning sine die last Thursday the
IVnnsylvnnla legislature discharged in argent
though long neglected duty by rediridlng the
State into Congress districts. The superseded
apportionment bad stood for twenty years and
was clearly obsolete. Two censuses had been
taken since Its boundary lines were drawn.
The State's population bad grown from four
millions to over six millions, and its representa
tion in the lower bouse of Congress had been
twice increased in 1891 from twenty-eight to
thirty, and In 1901 from thirty to thirty-two.
To avoid .1 renpportionment ten years ago
recourse was had to the expedient of electing
two itepresentatives-at-T.arg*'. Tills makeshift
served for a decade. But the glaring Inequali
ties in population shown by the census of 1!M»
mode ii recasting Of the old districts unavoid
able, and the legislature net itself early last
winter to the task of apportioning representa
tion more nearly in accordance with numbers
and relative growth.
Like most tasks too long slighted, this under
taking proved a difficult and discouraging one.
Local Interests stubbornly opposed the dismem
berment of districts which for twenty years
had enjoyed « disproportionate share of power.
No division on broadly equitable lines seemed
possible, and after a struggle which lasted all
the session the compromise measure of Thurs
day lust was pushed through. Beyond doing
away with the doubtful practice of representa
tional-large, the new apportionment act seems
to give no decided satisfaction in any quarter.
Certainly, although it allows n fuller share of
power to the two counties In the State— Phila
delphia nnd Allegheny have made the
greatest relative gains In population. It fails in
many Instances to cure the Inequalities com
plained of in the older arrangement of districts.
Pennsylvania having a population of 0,301,865,
each of Its thirty-two Congress districts should
contain about 107.000 inhabitants. But among
the new districts there are three over the
290,000 limit the Hid, in Philadelphia! the
Xlth. Luzerne County, and the XHlth, Berks
and Lehigh; and one only fi.ODO short of It— the
Vlth, in Philadelphia. On the other band, there
are four districts below the level of 1GT.,000, one
of them having only 146.769 and another only
It cannot, however, be charged that the new
apportionment Is in any sense a partisan gerry
mander. One nominally Democratic district in
Philadelphia— the old Randall one— becomes
Republican: but that change was Inevitable in
nny renpportionment. Another. In the north
west corner of the State, disappears through a
slight rearrangement of counties. But the
remaining Democratic dlstrlets-the old Vlllth
IXth. XVIIth and XlXth— are untouched, except
that the XlXth-now the XXth-is made more
safely Democratic by the detachment of one
more or less doubtful county. Throe of these
four Democratic districts fall below the proper
ratio In population, and hart a political gerry
mander been intended by the legislature at
Harrlsburg the number of Democratic districts
in the State could easily have been reduced to
three, possibly to two. In IK9* Pennsylvania
sent ten 1 >emooratie Representatives to Con
press. In 1060 she sent only flow. Under the
new apportionment twenty-seven or twenty
eijrht of the thirty-two districts may be regarded
under ordinary conditions as safely Republican.
The denth of Joseph Cook closes an Interest
ing epoch in religions thought. Science had
suecredeil in conquering for itself q place of
quasi-toloration. if not full recognition. The
theologians no longer met it with the convenient
weapons of ridicule and contempt, as in th^
famous encounter between Bishop Wilberforce
and Huxley on tbe theory of evolution, when
the former won the applause of the assembled
parsons by asking the scientist if it was his
grandfather or grandmother who was descended
from a monkey. Kvon the clergy hail come to
realize that the issues raised by scientific
observation and speculation must be met in
some more effective way. Many of the clergy
themselves were beginning to accept one or
more of the working hypotheses of science, hut
without any clear idea how the old traditional
beliefs could be made to dovetail with the new
views, or whether, indeed, they might not ulti
mately find themselves cast out of the ark of
the church with no sure resting place In the
boundless sen of science. As for the laity, they
accepted with manifest delight one after the
other of the theories of science that the clergy
declared to l>e n denial of Christianity. Even
such a citadel <>f orthodoxy as Oxford honored
the leaders of science with degrees, and in this
country the venerated President Mcf'osh of
Princeton stood in an attitude of sympathy
It was at this juncture of religious upheaval
and unrest that there arose a number of Chris
tian teachers and preachers who made nn enr
nest study of science In order that they might
be equipped to deny and. If possible, disprove
some of it> conclusions ;tnd harmonize with
the old 11 logy such of the dicta of science a-;
appeared to have established themselves. One
of the earliest of flies*' reconcilers was the late
Sir John William Dawson, principal of McGtll
College, who was not only a thorough, believer
In Christianity, but a distinguished geologist.
Although be always opposed the Darwinian
theory of evolution, be accepted lv the main, of
course, the facts and conclusions of his own
chosen field of science, geology, and be pub
lished an elaborate study of the cosmogony of
the story of the creation in the Book of Gen
esis, in which he aimed to pwve that the order
of creation ns there described corresponded
with the conclusions of geology. Although his
attempt at reconciliation is no longer considered
conclusive. President Morton, of Hoboken,
among others, having most effectively answered
it. liis arguments satisfied Christiana for many
yens, and undoubtedly kepi many students of
science from formally breaking with Christian
