SCHANTON, MAY 81, 1837.
Spain will charge ua the full amount
of the customs duties on tlu relief
supplies sent to Cuba to nave Amer
icans from starving. There In one
consolntlon about this fact. The United
States Is not so bankrupt that It can-
not. pay It.
The Sugar Scandal.
It Is not dllllcult to excite suspicion
'is to thd motives actuating men In
public office. An III report, no matter
how untrue, always travels faster and
finds more believers than a good one.
The United1 States senate as a body
ha In late years fallen Into popular
disfavor, very largely by reason of the
circulation. of sensational rumors to Its
discredit composed of nine parts ex
aggeration to one part truth. For this
reason tho conservative citizen, who
wishes to bo fair,, will be slow to accept
much that Is said Impugning the hon
esty of Influential membeis of the sen
'nte. Hut af this time the volume of rumor
connecting certain senators In a dis
graceful way with the so-called sugar
, trust has reached such dimensions and
ha3 by eminent Indorsement gained
such a degree of plausibility that for
once dlscreet'oplnlon can coincide with
Senator Tillman In demanding a thor
ough investigation. The men who di
rect attention to suspicious circum
stances tending to establish an undue
Influence on the pnt of thu Havemeyer
compnny over national legislation are
'not all mere babblers or sensational
ists. The chorus of accusation has
grown until It numbers within Its ranks
many of the most trustworthy citizens
In the circle of political prominence,
among the number being no less a per
sonage than the leader of the Repub
lican majority In the house of repre
sentatives, Mr. Dlngley. The editorial
which we reproduce on this page from
the Washington Star presents the gen
eral Indictment In concise languager.
It must be understood as this excerpt
Is read that the Star Is a Journal of tho
highest character, from whose col
umns sensationalism und demagoglsm
are effectually barred. The fact that
It Is Impelled to take so determined a
stand against the aggressions of the
sugar coterie In legislation Is certainly
If only a part of the current arraign
ment of a portion of tho membership
of the senate Is true, there Is ample
necessity for a probing of tho scandal
which will go to Its very core. Mere
condemnation of tho trust will not
prove effective. There must be a se
rious effort on the part of the senate
to reach the guilt which now, by all
accounts, sits defiant within Its circle,
be tho consequences what they may.
Spain Is likely to learn that It takes
more than big words to keep an army
In the field.
All Effective Rebuke.
The words of Secretary Gage at
Cincinnati last week constitute an ef
fective reply to the recent complaint
of Mr. Wanamaker at the adminis
tration's alleged "betrayal" of the peo
ple. "If any of you," said Mr. Gage,
"harbor the suspicion that tho admin
istration, but Just now installed Into
tho responsibilities of high office, has
forgotten, or Is likely to forget, the
mandate of the people, whose voice In
behalf of honest money and sound
finances Vang out loud and clear In No-
.vember last, put that suspicion aside.
It Is unjust and unfounded. In good
time and in proper order 'the affirma
tive evidences of my declaration will
appear. .In the meantime, my friends,
do your part to help those charged
with legislative and administrative du
ties." This is nt once dignified and se
vere. Those acquainted with tho facts
do not need to bo told that the lb-pub-llcan
party throughout the last na
tional campaign ottered as its first bid
for popular endorsement the pledgo
that It would make the government
, helf-supportlng by means of a protec
tive revenue tariff. This pledge it is
proceeding to redeem as rapidly as it
can. It already has fulfilled another
lmiwrtnnt pledge by the appointment
of a commission to solicit an additional
International bl-metalllo conference.
In each of the'se directions it has acted
.promptly, because in each direction
It -had given a positive and specific
. j)romIse'. As to currency revision it
""'.made no such definite agreement nor
do the conditions require nn Imme
diate 'opening off this issue. The cur
rency which we now have has given
, satisfaction far mora than a score of
'jiyoars, during the greater part of which
4'Ume there has been a high average
"of prosperity; and any proposition
looking to a recasting of It may prop
erly be deferred until it Is clear In
What direction It can bo Improved.
Complaint Is natural when times aro
f poor, but wo do not expect It to come
at this time from Republicans of In
telligence who know that their party,
through Its executive and legislative)
representatives ut Washington, Is do-"lng-its
Very utmost to achieve the pur
poses for1 which It last fall sought und
received a vote of publlo confidence.

handled tho multltudo on Saturday

The wors,t thing yet proved against

Not n Comprehensive Remedy.
In view of the vast body of state
legislation biennially rushed through
tho legislature, much of it unknown to
more than a minute minority until af
ter It become operative1, the Meadvllln
Journal suggests that no bill asldo
'from the appropriation bills' should be
come effective until It has passed two
successive legislatures It thus pv
plnlns It point:
"If all the Dills passed by one legis
lature were required to be printed In
cheap pamphlet form for wide distri
bution throughout the fttate, so they
can he studied by the people until tha
meeting of the next legislature, and the
members were 'choren wfth direct
reference to the Issues Involved In the
proposed laws, a great fctep would bo
taken In the right direction of better
legislation and of avoiding a great deal
of crude and ustltss legislation. It
would amount to the referendum, while
avoiding nearly all the objections to
that method of making laws. It would
nvo'd, ats.0, the necessity of the pro
posed legislative commission to revise
all laws before, passage, because the
whole people of the state, lawyers and
laymen, farmers and business men,
would be a. commission on revision of
laws. It would take two years longer
to pass a law, It Is true, but It would be
so much better when passed and so
much of weak, Injudicious and useless
legislation would be avoided, It seomB
almost as though the people could eas
ily endure what little Inconvenience
might result for tho sake of the great
benefits Ahlch would follow such a
reform. It would be applying to lawmaking-
the same principle which has
long obtained in amending the consti
tution, dispensing only with the direct
vote of the people."
In theory this proposition looks at
tractive, but from a practical stand
point it 19 open to the objection that
the pamphlet laws would not bo read,
and that two years of time in evory
four would be wasted to comparative
ly little purpose. Our contemporary
rests its plea for pamphlets on the con
tention that the newspapers do not
give the people complete Information
concerning matters in transit through
tho legislature. In a sense, of cours?,
they do not; that Is to say, they don't
print every bill, but the best papers
do print as much concerning legisla
tive affairs as trie average reader
cares to know. The Philadelphia Press
for example, has repoited tho salient
propositions arising during the present
session at Harrlsburg with exceptional
lulness, fairness and accuracy; anil In
a more limited manner, the Associated
Press, whose reports appear In The
Tribune, has done the same.
It Is not tho people's lack of Infor
mation ns to the verbiage of proposed
legislation that operates to their dis
advantage as much as It Is the lack
of good solid conscience and character
In many of tho men whom they elect
to represent them. They can procure
better legislation whenever they will
take the pains to elect better law
makers. Commenting upon Judge Willson's
decision relative to tho right of way
rights belonging to wheelmen, Consul
Doyle, of Philadelphia, says: "There Is
no law In tho statutes which will com
pel a lighter or unloaded vehicle to
waive Its rlcht of way In favor of a
heavier or loaded vehicle. I believe, of
course, that the element of politeness
and courtesy should enter, and that
under ordinary circumstances a bicy
cle rider should turn out of the way for
a heavy team, Just as a young person
would step aside before an old one,
but there Is no positive law to that ef
fect." That depends upon who tries
An Inquiry among the registers of
wills of Pennsylvania reveals that an
astonishing shrinkage In bequests of
personal property. has been taking place
In the past three years. Instead of
adding a million and a quarter of dol
lars to the revenues of tho common
wealth, as was expected, the recently
enacted Inheritance tax Is likely to
raise not to exceed $600,000 per annum.
This Is urged at Harrlsburg as a rea
son for Increased taxation, but It Is
really a reason only for Increased
Those western Republicans vho wish
to send representatives to the Detroit
convention of the National league of
Republican clubs will readily see the
propriety of selecting delegates In
sympathy with the Republican na
tional platform. The party position Is
favoruble to bimetallism on an Interna
tional basis but opposed to It on an In
dependent basis; and voters who ob
ject to thlB attitude may very properly
seek other alliance?.
The proposition which Is under con
sideration at Hnirlsburg to cancel tho
prohibition on the sale of oleomargar
ine and permit It to be sold In Penn
sylvania upon payment of a tax of
three cents a pound indicates a glim
mer of light In the legislative mind,
but only a glimmer. If oleo Is a safe
nnd nutritious food product, why
6hould It be taxed while butter goes'
free? Wherefore this discriminate?
Governor Leedy of Kansas Is one of
a syndicate of Populists which de
clares that It will build a railroad
from central Nebraska through Kan
sas, Oklahoma, Indian Territory nnd
Tpxas to the gulf. Each community
through which tho road Is to pass
Is to hold stock and havo a voice In
the management. The history of this
experiment, 'should It ever havo one,
would probably bo Instructive.

A favorable report has been made to
tho legislature on the bill to prohibit
tho playing of base ball and foot ball
on Sundays. The bill's penalty Is a
fine of $25 or imprisonment not ex
ceeding ten days. This Is nono too
severe and the bill should pass.

Tho proposition that -tho Sugar Trunt
stands before congress as other business
Interests stand, slrr.ply asking for the pro
tection guaranteed to nil under a po'.lcy of
protection, is most absurdly untenable.
Tho Sugur Trust, both In Its power In the
business und tho political world, and In
tho audacity of its operations, Is a Trust
npnrt, and is rapidly assuming the pro
portions of a most dangerous public ene
my. If It l not checked, nnd that very
promptly, t?sre will be no limit to its
nehemea or to Its corrupting power.
A dlstlnetlvo quality of this Trust Is Its
oynlcal franknoss. It is bold and un
blushing. It knows what It wants, and
It makes straight for its quarry. It
stands In with both parties. It helps tho
Democrats In Democratic states, and thu
Republicans In Republican states. It
stands to win, if it can make Itself sure
of Its men, no matter which side tri
umphs. It3 performance In this particu
lar recalls tho Irishman at aca, who, In
'a storm, began his prayer In this wlso:
"Good Lord, or Good Devil, for I know
not Into whost hands 1 may fall." In a
political storm tho Sugar Trust propitiates
both sides with offerings; for It knows
not Into whose hanJs It may fall. So far
In its career, It has fallen only Into hands
which hove fed It bountifully.
Hut tho Sugar Trust In Its operations
here should bo brought to book. This is
demanded in tho Interests alike 'of the
people and of a. sound legislative morality.
This congress cannot afford to do the
Sugar Trust's bidding. It cannot afford
to write into tho tariff bill now taking
final shape a sugar schedule which the
Trust desires, and which If enacted Into
law will moke It the dwpot of the sugar
market In tho United States for years.
II y that net tho Republican partyt would
publicly plead guilty 'to tho strongest in
dictment that even the Populists have
drawn, and would lose- the next congress
elections by a larger majority than the
Democrats lost those after permitting the
Trust to havo Its way in shaping the su
gar schedule of the Gorman-Wilson bill.
Nor Is this all. Tho Sugar Trust Is cs
nylng to help ehapo the foreign policy
orthe government. It Is behind the effort
to abrogatn the treaty with the Hawaiian
Islands, ami It opposes the cause of hu
manity for Cuba for fear Cuban sugar un
der c new government for the Island
would bo admitted Into this country upon
freer terms than now exist. This is a
bold flight for a business organization,
but tho Sugar Trust has shown Itself to
be capablo of It.
This manifest duty rests with tho sen
ate. Three years ago the Trust made Its
play for tho senate. A Democratic ways
nnd means committee of the house having
adopted a sugar schedule which the
Trust was not satisfied with, the Trutt
worked upon tho senato and got what It
wanted. History has In part repeated it
self. A Republican ways and means
committee of tho house has adopted a
sugar schedule which tho Trust does not
like, and has refused to nbrogato the
treaty with Hawaii. ThoTrurt appeals to
tho senate. Sha.ll tho Trust win there the
second time, with tho scannlai attaching
to tho first transaction filling the air with
a malodorous revival? Could tho senate
afford such a thing?
THE NEW GAME LAW.
Harrlsburg Letter In the Sun.
Governor Hastings has approved the
new gamo bill, and It Is now a law. Those
versed In all matters relating to the sub
ject of game say this Is one of tho bent
measures for the protection of game In
the United States. It represents the Joint
labors of tho State Sportsmen's associa
tion, with a membership of about 8,000,
and the board of game commissioners.
About six years ago the State Sports
men's association, at the Instance of
James II. and It. M. F. Worden, of Har
rlsburg, assisted by State Zoologist War
ren, began to agitate for an improvement
In the game laws. Statistics were collect
ed by these men and their friends to
show the necessity of action. The data
collected gave conclusive proof that If
the state of Pennsylvania did not soon
enact better laws for the protection of
her game and Insectivorous birds these
creatures would be exterminated by pot
hunters, snarers, egg hunters, and hat
bird taxidermists. Early In the present
year, when Governor Hastings appointed
tho members of the game commission, a
meeting of this body was called promptly
at Harrlsburg. A consultation was had
with representatives of the State Sports
men's association, and It was determined
that tho two organizations should unite
and work earnestly for the passage of tho
mil wnicn una now become law.
To give briefly some Idea of the great
destruction of animal life in this state,
It can be stated that tho statistics col
lected through the efforts of the Btate
Sportsmen's association, the game com
mission, nnd tho state Zoologist, show
that about $200,000 worth of game, birds,
and mammals Is killed annually In Penn
sylvania and exposed for sale In market
places. Tho killing of Insectivorous birds
of bright plumage for women's headgear
has also been carried on to a ruinous
extent, a taxidermist In ono of the largo
cities having collected in four years fully
20.000 bird skins for the millinery trade.
Men skilled In all the arts of the poachers
of the Old World havo Introduced various
kinds of snares and traps .which have
been used so successfully in certain sec
tions of Pike and other counties In this
Btato that ruffed grouse and several oth
er kinds of birds have been almost wholly
exterminated there. One firm In Susque
hanna county, from last September to
Dec. 31, purchased 3,000 pheasants, 1.C00
quail, 30,000 squirrels and a larger num
ber of rabbits. In the northeastern see
tlon of Bradford county, three market
hunters In 1S00 killed and shipped to tho
markets of tho Umpire state 1,000 pheas
ants, and In the western part of Brad
ford county ono pothunter In tho same
year killed over 600 of these birds. In
Venango county a pothunter. In the sea
son of U00, slaughtered and marketed 700
ruffed grouse. A professional hunter In
Luzerne county In 1806 Is said to have
killed S04 pheasants within a radius of
thirty miles of Wilkcs-Barro and to havo
sent them to tha New York 'markets.
This samet man In 1SS3. assisted during
'a portion of tho gunning season by two
of his sons, killed over 1,200 of theso
gamo birds. In tho county of York there
were marketed from five townships last
year 1.800 quail, 2,800 cotton tails, nnd
3.000 wild ducks. The value of the gamo
killed last season and sold In the county
of Dauphin Is said to havo been 118.
000. Tho bill which has Just received tho
governor's approval will eertalnly do
away with the trade of pothunters and
snarers, as well as tho murderous occu
patlon of the hat bird hunter. Section two
deals with the protection of song and
Insectivorous birds, and provides that
pereons who deglro to collect birds, their
nests and eggs or game mammals for
strictly sclentlfio purposes must obtain
certificates from the board of game com
missioners. The money derived, from
these permits, which heretofore have
been Issued by tho prothonotarles of the
counties, at a cost of $1 each a year,
will ho devoted to tho uso of tho game
commission. From this source a revenue
of icrhap8 $2M to (300 annually will be
obtained. As there havo been numerous
complaints In recent years about tho
great destruction of nests and eggs of
gamo birds by men who said they held
permits to collect for sclentlfio purposes,
tho law has been so framed that the
game commissioners cannot, even If they
so desire, glvo a permit which will en
ablo any person to collect game birds
or their nests and eggs out of season.
The bill prohibits tho salo of game of all
kinds killed In tho state; likewise the re
movnl of gamo from tho state. This last,
provision Is Intended to restrain a class
of non-residents who live In adjoining
states and come over the Pennsylvania
lino to shoot. Transportation companies
are prohibited from carrying game out
of tho state, but they are not Interfered
with In carrying gamo killed In other
states through this state. Game dealers
of Pennsylvania can purchase and sell
all the game they wish which has been
killed In other states. Heretofore, in con
sequence of deficient game laws. It has
been found practically Impossible In
many cases to do anything with a class
of game-law violators who had no prop
erty and who. when arrested; took ad
vantage of tho Insolvent law and would
escape punishment for their misdeeds.
Tho new bill provides that if men kill
gnme illegally they will bo put In Jail,
If their fines aro not paid, one day for
every dollar of the fine Imposed. The use
of ferrets Is common In a good many
parts of Pennsylvania, but a man now
found with n ferret In his possession
when hunting -rabbits will bo Jlablo to
Tho framcrs of the bill originally tried
to establish a uniform season for the tnk-
ing of nil game, but as there wcro many
diverse opinions among the sportsmen as
to tho wisdom of this It was abandoned.
Under this new bill woodcock can be
taken in July, and from Oct. 5 to Dec.
13. Inclusive; deer in November; rabbits
from Nov. 1 to Dec. IE, inclusive. The
seasons, ns fnr as they relate to wild
ducks, reed birds, snipe, plovers, doves,
nnd wild pigeons, are as under tho old
laws. Pheasants, squirrels, quail, and
wild turkeys can be taken legallv from
Oct. IS to Dec. 15. Mongolian or English
pheasants, which have been Introduced
In a few localities with a view of nat
uralization, cannot be killed for tho next
five years. To prevent tho professional
hunter and market shooter from slaught
ering great quantities or gamo In a lim
ited time, a limitation has been placed
on tho number of birds, eto., which a
gunner may kill in a day. It Is as fol
lows: WoSrtlcock and pheasants, 10; quail.
15; wild turkeys, 2. NO person Is allowed
to kill moro than two deer In any one
