Uy an accident In our press room yes
terday morning the delivery of a por
tion of Monday's edition was some
what delayed. For assistance In this
emerfrency we desire to express our
obllsatlons to J. A. Scranton & Son, of
the Republican. Durlnr; the remainder
of this week, or until this mishap can
be remedied, The Tribune, throufih the
courtesy of Messrs. Barrett nnd Jor

press. We ask the kind IndulRencc of
patrons for any shortcomings which
may result during this unforeseen In
terruption In our regular method of de
livery. A Call for Fair Play.
It Is begging the question for any leg
islator to assume that the cost of good
roads can be so apportioned by legisla
tion as to escape the farmer. It can
not and It should not be so apportioned;
nnd the Spatz bill and all other bills
which purpose to Impose a special tax
on the residents of cities for the Im
provement of roadways In the country
deserve to be defeated lnstanter ns
false In principle and vicious In sug
gestion. There is no reason In equity why the
man who propels n bicycle along a
road should be mulcted In the sum of
one dollar a year special tax while the
farmer who drives a wagon over the
same road Is exempt. The bicycle does
the road no Injury whatever; it Is the
wagon, If anything, that makes the
ruts. If It Is necessary to tax ve
hicles at all, let the levy be made with
out discrimination, and then the wheel
men will notcomplaln nor will the dray
man dare to. Hut none of this would
be funny business aimed exclusively at
wheelmen ns a class! That is not fair;
It Is not Just, and the wheelmen of
Pennsylvania, it may be timely to re
mark, simply will not stand it.
The benefits of good roads will reach
every citizen and every class In the
community, and for that reason, If for
no other, the cost of good roads should
be similarly diffused. The farmer who
holds out against reasonable nnd eco
nomical highway Improvement lit
erally by so much cuts down his
chances of making the old farm pay;
ndds to the causes which Impel his
boys nnd girls to skip, ere full grown,
to the cities, and Is In other clearly
demonstrated ways a forward factor
In his own undoing. Sensible and fore
sighted farmers see this nnd therefore
lead in the good roads movement.
Those who remain blind are to be borne
with Impatience, but they must not be
permitted to sprag for much longer the
wheels of rural progress.
American Ingenuity ought to be nblc
to do the rest.
While tho bulk of this trade Is ours
as It Is, there Is no certainty that It
will remnlrVours If we take no steps to
secure It. Already tho Japanese arc
talking about establishing large tex
tllo establishments In Hawaii, to send
their products Into the United States.
If this Intention were ever to be exe
cuted, It would sound the death knell
of tho domestic textile Industry on tho
Pacific coast. No tariff could keep tho
Japanese products out, provided they
had the start In cheapness of labor,
nearness of factory site and other ad
vantages which Hawaiian occupation
would carry with It.
The fact Is that tho opportunity now
open to Uncle Sam to annex Hawaii Is
a tremendous bargain. It means that
a property of almost Infinite value Is
to be had without price, nnd with tho
glad consent of the present owners.
We can Imagine no adverse circum
stance sufficient to warrant a rejection

Is This a Christian Nation?
The Rev. Dr. Henry It. IJrnnn, of
Now York, a clergymnn of the C.itho
llc church, professes to be alarmed at
the discovery that of tho 70,000,000 In
habitants of the United States, only
about 20,000,000, all told, are communi
cants of a church; nnd he avers from
this premise that this, in a strict senso
of the word, is not n Christian nation.
One need not excuse non-attendance
at church or Isolation from denomina
tional activities In order to point out
that the reverend gentleman's asser
tion Is extravagant. Though It be true,
on tho face of the census returns, that
only about two .Americans In seven
belong to church, wo hope to escape
prosecution for heresy if we assert that
easily as many as three of the unre
generate five are, to all Intents and
purposes, Christians In their sympa
thies, their aspirations, their ethics and
their general views of duty. At least
three, and may be more, are Christians
In their civic relations and are ready
at nil times to co-operato with the
friends of the church as against Its foes
In the material combats of every day
life. Wo doubt If one in seven Is an
avowed skeptic, ready to reap the fruits
of Christianity while reviling its tenets
and embarrassing Its progress.
This Is perhaps not the place to speak
of religion In a personal sense; but
we are certainly tempted to claim for
many of thobo who, through one reason
or another, remain unidentified with
the denominational church a personal
approximation to the essential condi
tions of Christianity such as would
by no means warrant their classifica
tion among the heathen. Not all who
commune are Christians In facp; and It
Is a poor principle to lay down that
the strength of Christianity In a coun
try of Intelligence and freedom Is
bounded Uy tho church-membership
polled In the last decennial census.
The experience of Cuba illustrates
that nothing Is cheaper than kind
words and nothing of less utility in

Retrenchment or Ruin.
There Is a good deal of old-fashioned
but wholesome common sense In the
remarks of Hon. J. Sterling Morton In
tho April Forum upon the' subject of
extravagance In public affairs. Mr.
Morton appears to have gone to Wash
lncton with a conscience nnd to have
been somewhat uncomfortable by rea
son thereof; but instead of shutting It
up and letting things go their way he
lifts his volco In the wilderness and
sounds a vigorous warning.
Tho nub of Mr. Morton's contention
la thnt the time has come when In
public ns well ns In private enterprise
the American people must lower their
expense to the bed-rock level. "The
oiit of local governments must bo les
sened. Administration of county and
city and village nffalrs must be made
more and more economical and business-like.
In short, the fixed charges
of American citizenship must be cut
down." We must do away with pen
sions In the form of high salaries or
fees that do not compensate merit, we
must hereafter be content to construct
fewer unneeded sewers and pavements
and build fewer county and city build
ings of extravagant proportions and os
tentatious styles, and there must In a
variety of ways be a limitation of ex
penditure to the necessities of govern
ment "honestly and economically ap
plied." Otherwise, the gradual revo
lution which Is working In wages and
prices, In which tho tendency is down
ward, will force Into our politics a
growing discontented clnss which
sooner or later will take the bit In their
teeth and run away with things.
In proof that he is not overdrawing
the picture, Mr. Morton cites a num
ber of tables which will repay study.
One shows how In sixty years tho cost
of administering the Federal govern
ment has been so augmented that in
1K80, with a population of more than
02,000,000 it was $1.75 per capita, where
as In 1S40, with a population of less
than 18,000,000 it was only $1.12. While
It is true that some of this crowth In
expense Is a heritage of the civil war,
with Its large Immediate costs and Its
subsequent pension rolls, that alone
does not suffice to explain away so
laige a growth. He points out several
other nvenues of extravagance nnd
waste that can be stopped up without
difficulty the public building craze,
wheieby vast sums of public money
nro sunk In costly piles utterly beyond
tho needs of tho public service; river
and harbor Jobs, many so notorious ns
to constitute In morals a crime not far
removed from treason; and lastly, the
exposition mania, whereby for every
conceivable local show the government
till Is tapped, commissions are ap
pointed to travel like princes and
bathe In champagne, nnd, ns our author
somewhat pepperly puts It, "everybody
Is taxed to enable relatively nobody
to have salaries and prollts, see pleas
nnt things and enjoy life intensely at
tho expense of the great majority who
nro not In attendance."
One point which Mr. Morton does not
emphasize but which Is really the dan
gerous feature of the whole problem
Is the fact that the citizen's means of
paying high taxes are diminishing with
steadiness while tho taxes themselves
when not Increasing, remain the same.
Take the case right here In Scranton,
What merchant, what laborer, what
manager of an Industry is receiving
today the Income of twenty or thirty
years ago, or expects ever to receive
such an Income again? Those were
boom times. The country rode then on
tho crest wave of speculation. In Iron
and steel and coal and real estate for
tunes wero to bo picked up while vou
waited, and very naturally taxes rose
accordingly. Hut while tho boom era
has gone forever, and tho enterprise
of tho people la settling down to a
steady-going hum-drum routine of nar
rowed margins and small, If any, prof
Its, have taxes fallen proportionately?
Have they, In Scranton? Have they
In the light of these questions, Mr.
Morton's paper becomes highly valu
able, and Its lesson merits attentive

More About Hawaii.
Some additional facts regarding Ha
waii deserve to be noted. American
Interests on tho Hawaiian islands are
already paramount. Of the total in
vestments held there In June, 1893, na
tive and Hawaii-born Americans owned
nearly two-thirds, or $26,109,1C6 out of
$36,811,690. To take Hawaii Into our
union would be merely holding- our
The total national debt of the repub
llo of Hawaii Is only about $4,000,000.
One year's exports would pay this debt
twice over and leave a working mar
gin beside. Under American control
these exports, now worth about eight
and one-hajf millions per annum,
ought to Increase to double and treble
that amqunt. The natural wealth Is
there awaiting development, and

Wnshlngton, April 5. President McKln
ley, In order tb get a respite from his
dutles,,at tho white house, nnd to avoid
the Strain Incidental to dealing with the
otneo-seekers, has decided to tako a vaca
tion. Ho will tako a run down the Poto
mac river for a fow days on tho Rovemio
Cutter Dolphin. In consequence of the
announcement of the president's Intended
vacation tho white house has been
thronged during tho past few days with
office-seekers nnd others who have favors
Among the applicants for ofllce who are
here Is Major John M. Ulttlnger, of St.
Joseph, Mo. Ho Is an applicant for tho
Swiss mission, the position to which John
O. A. Irishman, of tho Carncglo com
pany, umpires. Major Blttlngcr was born
near Chambersburg, Franklin county,
Pa., nnd spent his boyhood days there.
When a young man ho went to Missouri
nnd became active In the politics of that
state. His early teachings on tho slav
ery question had molded him Into a Re
publican of unusually strong convictions,
nnd ho became a nnrty leader. Ho was a
lieutenant of tho Into United States Sen
ator Ulalr, nnd after the election ot
President Lincoln In ISfiO, when the ques
tion of f'dernl patronage In Missouri
camo up, Ulalr suggested to Mr. Lin
coln that ho appoint Mnjor Illttlngcr
postmaster at St. Joeph. The president
promptly appointed him, and his nomina
tion which wns sent to tho senate on
April 11, 1SG1, was one of tho three Mist
postmustershlps sent to that body. Tho
two others wero Peter I.. Foy, who was
appointed postmaster at St. Louis, nnd
John D. Strong, who was given a simi
lar position at Jacksonville, 111. A few
days after Major Ulttingcr's nomination
was sent In tho senato confirmed It, nnd
his commission was promptly forwarded.
When ho presented It to tho retiring post
master that ofllclal, after hastily scan
ning It, discovered to the Major's chagrin
that it did not hear the signature of tho
president, and therefore refused to trans
fer tho ofllce. "ijor Elttlnger at onco
camo to Wash. ,ton nnd was cordially
received by President Lincoln who Imme
diately signed the commission.
When Major Ulttlnger returned to St.
Joseph nnd took charge of tho office one
of his first official acts was to run up on
tho building's flagstaff the Stars and
Stripes. Tho antl-Unlon sentiment there
was strong nnd tho flag wns torn down
by Jeff Thompson, who afterwards lie
came famous as a Confederate otlleer.
As Thompson left the postoltlco ho car
ried In his hand a bugle. Illttlngcr, pis
tol in hand, appeared at a window and
was on tho point of llrlng when Thomp
son gavo a shrill blast of tho bugle. In-
Htantly a hundred or more armed men,
whom Thompson had organized, appear
ed. Had Hittlnger fired It would havo
cost him his life. After the mob had
dispensed Hittlnger leplaeed the Hag
and stood ready to defend It. A few
days Inter a regiment of United States
soldiers from tho army post at Leaven
worth, Kansas, arrived nt St. Joseph, and
thero was no further effort to tear down
Among tho new Democratic members of
the houso Is John S. Rhea, who succeeds
Dr. Hunter, tho Republican caucus nom

of nolso on very slight provocation. Ho
Is ono of Kentucky's very boisterous sil
ver Domociats, nnd nt tho Chlcngo con
vention mado tho speech nominating Joo
Hlackburn for president. Nobody In tho
convention hall took him or his speech
seriously, although he had been adver
tised as nn orator. In this speech ho
pledged Kentucky to tho Democratic
party by at least 60.000 majority, from
which It can be readily seen that he Is
as poor a prophet us ho Is an orator
Rhea wns a candldato for congress and
through outrageous frauds secured tho
certitlcato of election. His opponent, Dr.
Hunter, Is contesting for the sent, and
if defeated for tho senate will push tho
contest to a successful ending. Rhea
threatens to break loose In tho houso nt
any time. Ho has nlready given his al
leged wit a ehanco In tho congressional
directory, whero ho refers to his Pal
mer nnd Ruckner opponent for congress
as tho candldato of tho "Aid Society."
When Joseph Ralley, of Texas, the new
leader of tho Democratic party In tho

has kept his word. On Friday evening
last ho wns Invited with the other mem
bers of tho ways and means committee,

Ralley was not there. In tho afternoon
preceding tho dinner ho called on Presi

and that ho would feel ojit of placo If ho
were to attend wearing his long Prlnco

the following rather unique account of
the ceremony: "Down the center alslo

His light trousers were carefully creased

a whlto martingale around his neck, and

effect that tho Third National bank of
Scranton, of which ho is president, has

$22,000,000 on notes nnd has lost only
$2,2M out of that amount. Tho statement
would seem nlmost incredible, were it

We find other lines of goods crowding us so much that it is necessary to give them

goods. So now is your time to come here and save big money.
As soon as the Carpet stock has been disposed of, our Curtain and Drapery Depart

Thanking the public for the generous patronage bestowed upon Carpet Department

With crowns of gold and crimson

And every flower In bloom
Bowed down Its head In sorrow

Next day they sought to find them;
Lo! rising whero they fell.
