above the mete ciuestloii or pay. The
reader who Is mindful of tills fact can
acknowledge It this mot nlnir with piotlt
to himself by purchasing of the carrier
n copy of The Tilbune Political Hand

easily worth the price charged for It.
In this way the cat tier leeches the

with a flist-class bat gain.
The New Year.
It Is within the powei of the people of
this countty, without tefeietice to the
past, to make the New Year a succe&s.
They can do It If they will:
Voik haul.
Sav e money.
lJay their debts.

Pay a living wage to labor.
Mind their own business.
Keep up courage In Ante: lean Insti

JJehave themselves genet alb.
Good t evolutions In the main are

but theie is no irason why the suffer

The Toionto Globe discusses tho sen
atotlal situation In Pennsjlvanla with
good Judgment It Is partlculatly ln
ettebtetl In the battle between the Vo
lan cot potation combine, on the one
hand, an Senator Quaj's "men in
bluses" on the othei Concerning the
Quny reply to Dolan It sas:
"The newspaper comment upon this
remnrk.ible uttetaiue Is of two kinds
Them is a disposition to smile btoadly
nt hlghfalutln' about polluting the vvell
sptlngb of the uatlonul being, coming
fiom so ei piactlcal a politician as
Mi. Qua j. Thete Is also a recognition
of an oleintnt of ttuth In the asset tlon
that tho business man in politics has
not alwajb been a putlfjlng and elevat
ing Inlluence. The tuiiuptlon of legls
latots b viie agents of railwas and
cotporatlons like the Statnlaid Oil com
pany Is an old stor The fact Is that
it Is Just ns necessaiy In this connec
tion to ask 'What sort of business?' as
to ask 'What sou of politics?' To
appl to public affalth the otdti, sj s
tetn, economy and good seiibe of a well
managed business concern is of coutso
an excellent thing. To allow the ma
chlnerj of government to he used to
fin ther the Intel ests of a ptlvate busi
ness is as gteat an evil as to allow
that machine!' to be manipulated by
heelets. And Mt Quay is quite tight
in saving that it Is Just as mischievous
to marshal the classes against tho
musses us to teveise the process."
New light Is shed on Senutoi Quay's
position by the disclosures In the Van
Valkenburg case llete, If sworn
accusation Is ttue, we have tho
chameleon charactet of the Wanamak
er Uuslness Men's league levealed
with diainatlc effect now piesentlng
the coloi of ii combination of self-ad-eitlbed
godliness, without guile and
without teptach; and speedily changing
Into a headquatteis for the most un-
ulusliing btlbety. "Miss Nnncjs" to
use Mi Van Valkenbutg's exptesslve
designation become on due occasion
haidened boodleis, equally jeady to
rig up a scandal cotps with which to
fool the chinch people or to dicker and
plot with the llngsters, crooks and
lulllans
And all this Is done unilei the name
and title of "the business man In poli
tics." It Is almost enough to make
decency vomit.
If Mi. Van Valkenbuig profits by
recent experience ho vv 111 make some
good tesolutlons today.
Justly Noted.
In the opinion of Hon. A. B. Cornell,
as exptessed' In the January Totutn
"the ptlmaiy and upparentCy the most
piollllc cause of out piesetit political
Instability is believed to nulde in our
too frequently recurring presidential
elections. Longer continued petlods of
imlnteirputed business tranquility are
extiemely desirable, and indeed Indis
pensable, for the safe development of a
dlvetslfled industilal piosjtuss. These
conditions can be securely attained only
by incieased exemption fiom unneces
saty political agitation. This desirable
result can be ptomoted -with the gteat
est certainty by extending the length
of the presidential term. The llrst and
last veais of every tuttlonal admlnls
ttatlon aie naturally seasons of politi
cal activity: so that, tinder a tcim of
lour ears, baiely two- years of quiet
can be expected If Che piesldentlal
term were lengthened to six yeais, wo
might fairly anticipate at least four
ears of continuous exemption from po
litical suite. The longe'i Intervals of
political tranquility between the piesl
dentlal campaigns could not fall to bo
promotive of conditions favorable to
the conservative development of busi
ness enteipilse In all Uepai tniontB of
Industrial activity.
"Supposing tno presidential term toljo
lengthened to six years; as liereln pro
posed, members of the liou.se of lepre
sentatlves should be elected for a period
of thtee yeais. Thus there would be,
as at present, two full termw of con
gress within the limit o each presiden
tial term. The olllclal service of each
new congtess slioukl uJso be made to
commence wltltln u reasonable time of
the election of the ineuiliets, Instead of
being postponed, for the Hist regulur
session, for nvore thuu a. year following
the election, as Is now the case. Thus,
the voice of the people, n epiesed
through their bnllots, would become po
tent, and receive trloro prompt and con
siderate attention. The practice of per
mitting the old congtess to conduct tho
legislation of the country for a whole
year after the election of tholr sucess
ots Is it relic of eaily days which nhoulil
speedily bo dispensed with."
There Is unquestionably a gieat deal
of Justice In these obspivatlons If at
any point they err It Is In suggesting a
three-year congtoslonul tetni. The
more fieiiuontly the people can havo a
say In legislation the bettor. Hut It Is
not desirable In their behalf to have
business toin to pieces every quadten-
nlutn by piesldenllul elections. Mil
lions In money unci untold mlsety could
be spated If the piesldentlal term wete
lengthened to slv eais

Van Valkenbuig, manager of the Wan
amaker senatorial hetidquaiters, and as
bearing especially upon his plea of In
nocence to which full publicity was
accotded In esteida's Tilbune, we
publish toda a summaiy of a poitlon
of the evidence now In the hands ot the

the loft contemplation of a possible

of $4,000 apiece tor votes In the legls
latuie. In the case of Dt. N. C. Mac
key, of the Thlid Lackawanna dls
ttlct, it should be tald that he acted
under advice of local ftlendb fot the
purpose of exposing the Wunamaker
methods, but without being aw ate, at
the time, that the supposed emlssaty
of Wanamaker was In fact working
also tow aid the same end. Concerning
Kopiehontatlve-elect Kenolds of Cai
bondale, It deseives to be said that up
on two occasions he t of used offeis of
$500 made by a lieutenant fiom the
Wanamaker camp, declining to have
an thing whatevei to do with such a
tpe of politics. The other Lacka
wanna membei -elect mentioned else
where Iieptesentatlv e Parr will be
entitled to a hearing In defense.
In all, the nairatlve Is lnstuictlvo
leading, showing as it does some poli
tics fiom an Inside standpoint. Unless
it can be successfully conttovprted, It
will undoubtedly dispose of the Hon.
John Wanumaker.

The case ot John McLean, which was
biou;ht to light at n meeting of
the Jcimn school boatd this week, If
put sued to the end may have the effect
of testing the constitutionality of cet
luiii school laws that In the opinion of
many Infilnge upon the rights of Amei
Ican citizens genet ally. Mi. McLean is
father of a boy under thliteen eais
of age whom he would like to send to
the public schools piovlded the school
boaid would admit the lad without In
sisting upon the ouleal ot vaccination.
The boy was vaccinated eight yeats
ago, and the father does not think an
otlict application of the vaccine matter
is necessar The school law sas that
child) en shall bo vaccinated once eveiy
seven eais, and the dliectois of Jei
m n decline to admit the pupil unless
the piovlslons of the net of leglslatuie
havo been compiled with. Mi. McLean
refuses to send the boy to school on
these conditions and now becomes liable
to prosecution under the compulsuiy
education law
'ihe case offeis n vast amount of fooil

who believe that disease more
tenlble than small-pox is otten dis

bcab or quill This belief Is gaining
ground not In localities of Ignorance but
among the most enlightened ami pio
giesslve. While all the phases of the
Jeiinjn case may not appear upon tho
surface, It Is evident to the tali- minded
that the Individual who objects to the
pioccrs of grafting that Is liable to In
oculato tho victim with various dlsoi
dcrs In tho cutegui ot blood diseases,
is entitled to some consideration. In
view of the facts In the enso It seems
safe to venluio the guess that u su
pteme couit test would furnish some
means of escape for the citizen who
Is wedged In between the vaccination
and compulsory education laws.
