If tlto city of Plttston enn nfforrt to
boycott outside enterprise, outside en
terprise can afford to be boycotted.
The report soems, nnd we prefer to
believe, H Incredible that a sulllclent
number of senators lit Washington will
undertake to Lret even with President
Cleveland and Secretary Olney by de
feating the arbitration treaty. It does
not need to be pointed out that such a
defeat from such a motive would In no
wise abate the triumph which these
two men have won In the treaty's suc
cessful negotiation. Jt could only re
coll on the heads of the senators who
should have encompassed It. They, and
not Cleveland and Olney, would have
their illumes clipped.
We look at the treaty Itself with
less reverence than sumo. We do not
think It ushers in the millennium of
perfect peace. We do not fancy that
the world has seen tho last of war. We
are not possessed by the Idea that It Is
time to begin tho disbanding of stand
ing armies; to turn warships Into coal
barges and to let our coast fortifica
tions become the unchallenged abiding
places of the bat and the owl. In other
words, we cannot deceive ourselves
Into Imagining that one short treaty
has wrought any miraculous transfor
mation In the chemistry of human na
ture, precipitating tho passions nnd
unfettering tho graces.
Viet we recognize that In its educa
tional significance it is a great for
ward step, leaving, to be sure, great
bloodless victories yet to be won, but
pointing out, as no prior Instrument of
statecraft has yet done, the direction
in which those victories may be won.
It is a harbinger of the coming time
when the appeal to force of arms will
come last Instead of first. For this rea
son the American senator who Inter
poses factious obections to its ratifica
tion brands himself as a public enemy.
emphatically for serious consideration.
It Is weil In this time of fluent talk
about woman's ampler sphere tu have
tho minds of sensible women turned
occasionally toward a studious and
sympathetic contemplation tit tho
duties and responsibilities of that
sphere which boars commission from
Divinity Itself tho sphere of mother
hood. The remodeled Chap-Hook today
makes Its first appearance In tho now
size. When It lately declared Its in
tention to expand Into n Berlous review
which would, to the limit of Its ability,
"subject contemporary literature to tho
highest standards," there were some
smiles of sarcasm and not a little shak
ing of heads. Hut the Introductory Is
sue in tho new guise demonstiates that
Its ambitious prospectus was no ....a
boast. Five more Interesting book
criticisms would bo hard to find any
where; and one of them that of Har
rle's "Sentimental Tommy" although
u trllle luxuriant In rhetoric, is never
theless n masterly analysis, and wor
thy to be taken for a model. If tho
Chap-Hook can maintain this level, Its
warrant fur existence cannot be questioned.
In n sense it may bo said that con
gress is going to seed. Despite Secre
tary Morton's protests, the house com
mittee on agriculture has just increased
from $13.",000 to $150,000 the appropria
tion for the government seed bureau.
A Cougress of flotliers.
In these- days one must be prepared
to expect all sorts and conditions of
congresses, covering every avenue of
associated effort; but It is doubtful If
any pioneer movement of this kind
during the past decade has offered
richer promise In Its prospectus than
is afforded in the literature put out
in behalf of the National congress of
mothers, wilich Is to assemble Feb. 17
In Washington. The very idea of ask
ing women into conference, not for the
purpose of gaining a foothold in poli
tics or In the breadwlnnlng vocations,
but with a view to promoting the bene
ficent and fundamental Influences and
Interests of motherhood Is no novel,
umldst all the contemporary "new wo
man" nonsense, that one has to steady
oneself In order to comprehend Its full
A national congress of mothers, never
having been held before, will naturally
be somewhat tentative and experi
mental, but we learn from remarks
made by Airs. Theodore W. Hlrney, of
Washington, who is foremost in ar
ranging for the forthcoming conven
tion, that the present movement "Is
not a reformative one; It is a forma
tive one," the aim being, In short, to
strengthen the agencies which make
for better and cleaner and more whole
some home life. "It Is proposed," says
Mrs. Hlrney, "to have the congress
consider subjects bearing upon the bet
ter and broader moral and physical as
well as mental training of the young,
such as the value of kindergarten work
and the extension of its principles
to more advanced studies, a love of
humanity and of country, the physi
cal and mental evils resulting from
some of the present evils of our schools,
and the advantages to follow from a
closer relation between the influence
of the home and that of institutions
of learning. Of special importance will
be the .subject of the means of develop
ing in children characteristics which
will elevate and ennoble them, and
thus assist In overcoming the condi
tions which now prompt crime and
make necessary the maintenance of
jails, workhouses and reformatories.
These matters will be presented to
the congress by men and women fore
most in such work, and whose names
are everywhere known and revered."
That llrs. Hlrney Is In earnest needs
no further proof than this:
It Is tho expectation to have such a
gathering of representative workers for
tho benefit of the human race that the
Ulvino fire of enthusiasm will warm the
hearts, not otUy of all mothers, but of all
mankind, to tun appreciation of the snored
obligations owed to the race through tho
children of today and tho generations to
come. The average mother Is but Indif
ferently equipped with knowledge for the
moral, mental, and physical training of
childhood. Ajnd Is it strange, when
throughout tlio whole peilod of her edu
cation, there has been perhaps not a single
hour In which- the subject was presented
to her as one most worthy of her atten
tion? What a satire upon our boasted
wisdom of today, when dead languages
und higher mathematics take piecedence
over that knowledge which should stand
pre-eminent I'n a woman's education,
What deplorablo lgnoraneo do we not fea

varied temperaments of childhood, but
Ignorance of their physical needs, with
results too distressing to be dwelt upon.

It Ih Indicative of an unfortunate
state of affairs when the executive de
partments of the city government, In
order to get through councils sulllclent
appropriations to cover actual expenses,
have each year to resort to the thread
bare makeshift of Inflating their orig
inal estimates nnywhero from 20 to r0
per cent. The evil of this Is two fold.
It Involves deception and It has a ten
dency to encourage the estimates com
mittee In the bad habit of knocking
estimates in the head, on general prin
ciples, whether Justifiably or not.
The detailed comparison of amounts
this year asked for with amounts last
year granted, which we printed yester
day, brings out this evil prominently.
Against $37.1,211.19 requested for 1SD7 wo
have $274,827.43 granted for 189G, with the
moral certainty that this year's grants
will not be In excess of $300,000. When,
therefore, in tho neighborhood of $"u,
00(1 is deliberately hacked out of cur
rent' estimates, It follows either that
there has been a good deal of false rep
resentation or else that legitimate
and urgent municipal needs must be Ig
nored. Either horn of the dilemma is
quite as bad as the other.
Uf the items of notable increase no one
need expect that the street commission
er's department will receive $2G,01S, or
that S19,G7S.1S will be voted for the im
provement of Nay Aug, Connell and
Woodlawn parks. Yet these sums
might both be Invested to the city's de
elded advantage, In ways that would
in course of time return the investment
many times over. Tho parks especially
merit liberal attention, since every year
of neglect of them simply robs tho
city's poor. In similar fashion, there Is
genuine necessity for an enlarged police
force and for at least one new engine
house and regular company. That
either will be awarded this year seems
doubtful. We would It could be other

to the body which he quitted, not
without reason, fifteen years ago.
Against great odds he has unwavering

The Indianapolis Convention.
The monetary conference at Indian
apolis laid down these three funda
(1) That the present gold standard
should be maintained.
(2) That steps should bo taken to insure
the ultimate retirement of all classes o
United States notes by a gradual and
steady process, so as to avoid Injurious
contraction of the currency or disturb
ances of the business Interests of the coun
try, and that. In such retirement, provi
sion should be made for a separation of
the revenue and note Issue departments ot
(3) That a banking system be provided
which should furnish credit facilities to
every portion of the country and a sate
and elastic circulation, and especially with
a view to securing such a distribution of
the loanable capital of the country as win
tend to equalize tho rates of Interest in
all parts thereof.
The llrst proposition Is conceded,
pending the adoption of safe bimetal
lism by international agreement if pos
sible. The-objoctlons to the second proposi
tion are well explained by Senator Sher
man, who shows that it would substi
tute an Interest-beating for a non-Interest
beating currency, without ade
quate advantage to warrant tho in
Concerning the third proposition it
may be said that the people of the
United States are looking for such a
banking system, and when they find it
they will eagerly adopt It. The Indian
apolis conference seems to have left
conditions where It found them.
I notice that the ghost story which orig
inated in Scranton ten years ago bids fair
to go on forever. In the fall of 'SO a yarn
was started to the effect that a mysterious
woman clad In black garments had been
seen near the nlr shaft of one of tho
abandoned mines of tho iron company.
Upon being approached tho "womun in
black" suddenly disappeared down tho
shaft. According to report this awful
wraith soon began to evince n disposition
to chase persons at nightfall, and though
many brave young men endeavored to
catch the "woman In black" they never
succeeded. The story of the "woman In
black" soon spread over the country and
in u few weeks the toivn that could not
boast of a sable spectre did not amount
to much. The late Adam Motchman, a
waggish cigar-maker of upper Lackawan
na avenue, claimed to have been tho orig
inator of the Scranton "woman in black"
hoax, and used to take great delight in
relating the manner In which he fooled
the Innouent residents In tho vicinity of
the old rolling mill. Although the Scran
ton "woman In black" no longer troubles
the timid youths and maidens at night,
the residents of other towns and cities
still seem to have faith In tho sable spec
