was made up of representatives of
eighteen previously competing rail

The Mil of complaint alleged that this

summaries of Its opinion do It justice,
lays down the Interpretation that the
Hli rm.m law Is valid wherever federal
uuihorlty has Jurisdiction, to suppress
every possible combination intended to
limit competition or restrain trade,
whether that limit or restraint be
reasonable or unreasonable. In other
words. It Is within the power of the
Vnited States rovornment to decree
that In all business traversing state
bounds monopolies may be out-lawed,
arbitrary restrictions canceled and the
way made leady for the freest and
fullest natural competition.
The ilTict of this decision cannot i?
otherwise than far-reaching; hut before
u.- ulw way to speculation as to Its
lonsi'iiuence, vn prefer to await the ar
rival of the decision's complete text.
"Wit and brains," says Colonel In
pprs'ill. "are a better combination, by
a long shot, than dignity and stupid
ity." For some purposes.
The fact that It is within the right
of each state legislature to define what
conditions shall entitle an alien to na
lunillzatlini In the courts of the state
is advanced as a reason why the gen
eral assembly ut Ilarrisburg should at
this session take steps to put this Im
portant matter upon u moie satisfac
tory plane. Xo one knows more ileil
nltely than the Inhabitant of the an
thracite coal regions what carelessness
has upoirocoasions prevailed In the na
turalization courts, and while the tend
ency of our judges is to' lift u the
standard, It Is really the duty of the
legislature to come to their aid.
A bill to this end has been introduced
In the house by Representative Coray,
of Iuzerne, but whether it meets the
emergency In every particular Is a
matter for consideration. It provides,
as we understand it, that no alien shall
hereafter be naturalized who, cannot
reud and write the ICngllsh language
and offer a fair explanation of the main
principles of our government. Under
such a bill largo latitude would neces
sarily be left to the piesldent Judge,
and If he were disposed for any reason
to ease tho process, the restriction
might not have noticeable effect. But
It is our belief that few Judges would
not welcome the chance to throw upon
the legislature's shoulders the lespon
slblllty for u strict enforcement of a
law like that suggested, and thut.
therefole, the experiment would lie
feasible. In general Intent, at least, it
accuids with enlightened sentiment
and merits careful attention by the
The time, we think, has gone by when
the suggestion of such a restriction
upon the sulfrage In this country could
be met by a widespread charge of
bigotry and the proscrlptlve spirit.
Ample experience In wholesale and in
discriminate hospitality has bred a
taste and, indeed, shown the necessity
fur some narrowing of the matter. The
dominant thought today la not bitter
ness against aliens but concern for the
safety of natives and regard for the
flfnro of those who, although boiu
in other lands, have, become Amerl
111ns In name and fact. It Is Impera
tive In the behalf of these that tho pol
luting iiipour of unlit guests should
be stopped. If It cannot be stopped at
the landing places, then let It bu
haired at the citizenship cotitt.
Tin oillce seeker, In tho opinion of Dr.
Dana, has as much right to seek as the
olIU-u holder has to hold. Abstractly
and theoretically, that is tine; hut
practically, possession Is often nine
points in law.
The prospect of a personal contest
between John Wanamakor and Senator
Quay, ostensibly for the statu treamir
ershlp but In reality for the control of
the Pennsylvania Republican organi
zation, Is offered In current dispatches
h one of the political excitements of
tho Heuson. Wo suspect that this fore
cast .is subject to soino discount, for It
hardly seems probable that .Mr. Wiuin

would care again to court the rough

Among the bills introduced this week
at llnrrlrihurg was an Interesting one
relating to corrupt practices at elec
tions. It requlles every candldnte for
public olilce to lllo an Itemized state
ment of election expenses, whether ho
is voted for at a primary, special or
regular election held in any of the
cities, counties, boroughs of election
dlstilcts of the commonwealth, within
ten days after such election. Such
statement shall give tho names of the
various nrsjns who 1 ecelved inoney.aiid
specify the nature of each Item und the
purpose for which It uis expended or
contributed. There shall be attached
to such statement an allldavit to Its'
truth, subscribed and sworn to by tho
candidate. Any candidate who neglects
or refuses to llle a statement for a. per
iod of ten days after tho date of the
primary, municipal or general election
has been held, shall be guilty of a
misdemeanor, and upon conviction
thereof shall bo lined not exceeding $"i00,
or imprisoned not exceeding one year,
or both, at the discretion of the court.
This 1s substantially the law n'ow In
vogue In New York, where it was in
troduced with a nourish of trumpets
quite out of pioporthm to Its subse
quent' usefulness. Its Intention Is ex
cellent, but like Miost statutes aimed at
widespread, abuses which prosper
thiough public Indifference It falls be
cause of easy evasion, it is a debatable
question whether such laws do not do
almost as much harm as good, for the
reason that their evident failure to
achieve their end casts more or less dis
credit upon statutory enactments In
general and weakens respect for the
law-making function. . Uofore an en
actment of this character Is made In
Pennsyhniila public opinion ought to"
be prepared to demand Its vigilant and
impartial enforcement. Until such
preparation Is made, Its enactment will
be likely to add nothing to the sum of
electoral purity, which is already far
better protected In law than In fact.
The corrupt practices act prepared by
the Pennsylvania Civil Service Kel'orm
association, which at llrst glance In
spired us wllli earnest admiration,
'might be worthy of a trial, for the rea
son that It Is apparently drawn so us
to offer no visible loophole for guilt;
but even this slgnlllcant measure Is
clearly In advance of the times and
needs back of It, to make It effective,
a sell t intent which now is confirmed
only to a small percentage of the com
monwealth's citizenship. It Is right
sentiment which Is deeded now Instead
of additional law.

authority that the recent prize, light

Illiteracy in Cuba.
An interesting analysis of the popula
tion of Cuba, based on the last olllclal
census of 1SS7, appears in this mouth's
number of Clinton's Magazine. Ktoin it
we loam that the f-ar of negro suprein
ncj under a republican form of gov
ernment for Cuba Is as groundless as In
the similar fear In certain of our south
ern stuteK. Out of a population of 1,031, -CS7
only 52S, ch tiro blacks, Chinese of
n!ireontatlves of mixed races. In oth
er words, the whites outnumber tho
blacks move than two to one, and aro
increasing In numbers while tho blacks
are decreasing. Ill the decade from
1S77 to 1SS7 the Whites In Cuba Increased
by the number of 117.0CS while the
blacks (under which heading are in
cluded all races other than Caucasian)
decreased by the number of 7,002, or
one and one-third per cent.
The gnat danger to a republic In
Cuba would not come plimnrlly from
the blacks os a race, but from the illit
eracy of whites and blacks alike. On
this point the last census offers dis
couraging lotnrns. it shows that only
one white Cuban in three can read and
write, nndy only about one black In
eight. To be sure, no opportunities of
education as we understand the term
have been alforded In Cuba. It Isunie
that In lSbO there were in the Island
1001 nominal schools, or 0110 school for
every 1K0 Inhabitants; but by 1S!7 this
had decreased to only 775 public schools,
not one of which would lit the Ameri
can idea of popular instruction. ite
gardless, however, of the cause, the fact
of a piev.ilence u'f Illiteracy amounting
to Ti per cent, of tho total population
stands out us n serious peril to any
experiment In sell-government In Cuba.
We have no doubt that this alarming
percentage of ignorance would soon
disappear under a fonn of government
offering Invitations to native and for
eign enterprise. The island s natural
wealth renders It easily capable of sup
porting In comfort live times Its present
population, and tho immigratlun which
wouhl bo attracted to It would, lu the
main, be educated, If Cuba weie to
become a part of tha United States, we
would have no doubt whutover of the
successful solution of the problem how
to ii'liko her lit for self-goverinnont.
Tho Cubans that an found In tho
United Status learn rapidly and prove,
upon the whole, admirable citizens.
They of course reprment chlolly' th
betterclussos; but It is the lack of oppor
tunity rather than any inherent mental
deficiency which keeps the lower class
is of native Cubans In the bondage of
iignorance. The very rerlouBiichs of
(culm's plight adds to our sympathy for

Special to The Scrim ton Tribune.
Washington, March 21. The Olngley
tariff bill, now being discussed In the
house, will have a rocky road to travel
when It reaches the senate. The members
of the senate lliuince committee are ul
ready 01 wotk on the vivisection of the
measure, and there is every reason to Ih
lleve thut it will be alinost unrecogniz
able when the upper house gets through
with It. Heretofore the general drift of
senatorial levlslou of tuilll' bills has been
to raise duties above those Imposed by
the house, bat this time the trend Is in
the opposite direction. (Jerinany Is said
tp be Incensed ut the Imposition ol special
duties to offset the bounties she gives her
sugar growers. There is high authority
for the statement that the lumber tariff
has already caused special Instructions to
be sent to the lliltlsh minister In Wash
ington which may subsequently be madu
the basis of diplomatic correspondence,
All things considered tho tariff light now
011 promises to bo a long and tedious one,
ami Just when It will end cannot bu pre
dicted. All Indications point to some re
ductions In several of the most impor
tant schedules In the bill us prepared l,y
the ways und means committee. Very
few senators believe that tho bill will
reach tho white house for the president's
signature much before the middle of July
or the first of August.
If the olilce seekers do not soon stop
their raid on the white house President
MeKinley will ho compelled to abdicate
for a time to recuperate his shuttered
health, lie is beginning to show the ef
fects of the strain upon him, ami he will
either have to close the doors ol the ex
ecutive mansion to tho horde of place Hun
ters and politicians generally or go oat
of town for a rest. Mr. McKlnley's broth
er, Aimer, and wife and his mother uro
now at Atlantic City enjoying, the breezes
of old oeenn and the president may Join
them shortly for a few days' recreation.
The white house wus invaded by the
correspondents ol the various newspa
pers reptesented at the national capital
on Tuesday last, who culled to pay their
lespeet to the new president. Consider
ably over one hundred of tho "boys"
shook hands with Mr. .MeKinley and
wished him a sueecsslul administra
tion. Theic yus a striking contrast be
tween tho attendance la response to Pres
ident McKlnley's Invitation and the visit
of tho correspondents to President Cleve
land a mouth ago. Less than twenty
newspaper men laund their hearts warm
enough to pay their respects to the retir
ing president, while nearly ten times that
number giueted the 'new chief magis
trate. The "boys" wein given a cardial
reception by the president and all left
the white hoiibe feeling that high olilce
had not swelled the head of the distin
guished occupant of It; that lie was the
same Major MeKinley as of old when he
was only u member ol congress, and cuuiu
in almost dully contact with them.
Itiumlng down moonshiners In the
mountainous districts of North Carolina
Is a Job not hanUeied utter by many citi

vania county, N. C for the past live
years. He Is a typical mountaineer, and-
withal a polished and ehlvalrlc gentle

for the place. He says It Is no sinecure,
but he Is willing to tackle the Job for tha

Tho tariff debates In the house are

when monuments are raised to the mem
