SCItANTON, JUNE 11. 1897.
If Senator Quay's presence tit liar
rlsburg will h'ave the effect of pull
lnpr the legislature together so as to
stop extravagance and give Intelligent
heed to real state needs, then by all
means let him make the Journey. Good
guidance Is clearly essential.
As Indicative of a line of action
which wan to have been expected of
certain elements In the legislature but
which Is an evasion of the Issue raised
In Governor Hastings' recent message,
the following from the Philadelphia
Inquirer Is Interesting:
Apparently thq legislature Is going to
take tHW govcrnorat his word and reduce
expendJtUrcs to exUUng Tovenues. Th'e
menn that there. 'will not be a dollar for
any of tho many hospitals, colleges and
other charitable Institutions which havo
so long relied on tho state, bounty for aid
In carrying on their Important and neces
sary work. It means that the state In
stitutions will suffer, that the criminals,
Insane and unfortunate. Instead of having
that extra provision that has become so
necessary, will have to do with even Imb
than they now have. Thli is far from sat
isfactory. The necd'of aid for these insti
tutions was never greater than now. The
hard times of the past four years havo
greatly out down private benefactions, be
cause donors are not able to continue
their former gifts, no matter how much
they would llko to do so. The responsi
bility for this will rest with the governor.
The foregoing excerpt, It will be no
ticed, assumes that the only place In
which retrenchment Is possible Is In
the appropriations to charity and phil
anthropy. The chairman of the house
committee on appropriations, Mr. Mar
shall, Is quoted In an Interview as say
ing virtually the same thing. The
governor evidently holds a different
opinion; for In his recent communica
tion to the legislature he says: "Our
public schools must be sustained, our
penal Institutions provided for, and
the unfortunate In mind and body,
whom we have always with us, must
receive our shelternlg care. THERE
IS MONEY roit ALL "-THESE IF
If the legislature now In session had
from the first made manifest an en
deavor to limit its miscellaneous bills
calling for the appropriation of money
to the very least sum3 consistent with
effective government; If after the new
cnpltol fire, for example, It had In the
first Instance phown a disposition to
study economy as well as architectural
display; If In its jovlng commissions,
Investigating committees and election
contests, It had kept within tho bounds
which' would have restrained the ex
penditures of a private enterprise dur
ing a season of diminished revenues,
then the assertion by it that the only
place where retrenchment Is possible
Is In tho state's gifts to philanthropy
would have obtained the credence of
the public, and there would be some
ground for It to try to throw tha re
sponsibility for a threatened stoppage
of charltnble appropriations upon the
governor. As it Is, with'- the public
In full possession of Its record regard
ing these matters, tho threat to cut
off our eleemosynary Institutions with
out a shilling sounds puerile, and there
Is not a, man in either branch of the
legislature who would dare to vote to
put It Into execution.
We commend to the gentlemen in the
legislative department at Harrisburg
the remark of the Philadelphia Times
that "on any Issue of economy that
may arise between the legislature and
the executive, th'e people of every par
ty and every faction will be overwhelm
ingly on the side of the governor."
That. Journal crystallizes a pertinent
truth when It speaks of "severe econ
omy" as "Indispensable at thl3 time."
The governor has not recommended the
crippling of the state service; he has
simply called a halt on deliberate or
careless legislative extravagance; and
the people on this issue are with him.

The Toronto Globe on Wednesday Is
sued its Jubilee number, a twenty-eight
page supplement, with illuminated cov
er and a wealth of pictorial and his
torical contents probably never sur
passed by a Canadian publication.
There were portraits in half-tone o!
the Queen, the royal family and the
colonial governors and parliamentary
leaders of the Biltish empire; and final
ly, there were group porttalts of "the
dominion ministry and of the separate
provincial cabinets, together with a
thorough exposition of Canadian his
tory, resources and attractions.
From the Journalistic standpoint
this brilliant piece of workmanship,
flne In all Its phases, compels our un
qualified admiration. It may well be
taken as colonial Journalism's best of
fering to tho Jubilee. Yet the political
reflection will arise that there Is a
certain amount of Incongruity In the
making of so much fuss In Toronto
over a commemoration which Is to cul
minate In far-off London, and which,
all sentiment aside, will, so far as
Canada Is concerned, 'represent only

earlier American case, without repre

That Englishmen and the sons of

creditable. But have Canadians the

The Interest BUI a Law.
By Its enactment of the Stewart In
terest bill the legislature has brought
to nn end one fruitful cause of com
print, In this state. While under the
former system of keeping tho state
treasurer under bonds ample to pro
tect th'e state against loss there has
not been sacrifice of the common
wealth's balances, It has been argued
with evident truth that the mere safe1
keeping of the principal of state
moneys on deposit was not all that the
people have a right to expect. If tho
banks In Philadelphia and Pittsburg
nro willing to pay Interest on city de
posits, a case Is Immediately establish
ed why Interest convertible Into the
state's own account should be required
on state balances In bank.
The bill which on Wednesday went
to the governor secures to the state 2
per cent. Interest on the dally ex
changes of the treasury In the scatter
ed banks that take small sums from
the commonwealth for deposit, and 1
per cent. Interest on the balances In the
clx main depositaries where the bulk
of the treasury business Is transacted.
This arrangement represents a com
promise between the faction which
wanted all funds to bear 2 per cent.
Interest and that which opposed the
whole theory of Interest on state "bal
ances; but It is reasonable and fair,
and will undoubtedly satisfy public
While 0. good deal of the hue and cry
over this matter has been the artificial
handiwork of politicians at war, and
while It has not been proved that the
finances of the state, so far as the
treasurer's office Is concerned, have
been conducted with more waste or
carelessness than are Inevitable under
the conditions of popular government,
yet It Is well to have the clamor stilled
and to secure to the state, at this
time of diminished revenues, the In
come which this Interest bill, will af
ford. It Is too much to hbpo that the
factional backbiting of the past few
years will now cease; but If It will
henceforth chose some new subject of
wrangling and leave the good name of
the treasury unbedaubed, n substantial
benefit will hav? been gained.
An excellent opportunity for guess
work is supplied by tho closing of the
Knorr-Wlntersteen trial. The one sure
verdict, however, Is that Knorr be
longs behind the bars.
The One Inevitable Result.
The article elsewhere reprinted from
tho New York Sun giving the views of
the London National Review upon the
duty of tho United States toward Cuba
Is instructive. This representative or
gan of British public opinion takes the
flat position that since the government
at Washington, by means of the Mon
roe doctrine, has forbidden the Inter
vention of disinterested European
powers in Cuba, In the behalf of hu
manity, It must Itself accept this re
sponsibility or be discredited.
One other point In the London pa
per's article Is Interesting. After mar
veling at the moderation of the United
States under circumstances In Cuba
which compelled the withholding of the
names of consuls reporting to the state
department, lest these consuls should
be mobbed by the Spanish, the Review
very truthfully Intimates that It would
be difficult to reconcile Englishmen to J
such a situation.
We hear much from Washington at
present from unnamed cabinet officers
and persons "high In authority" to the
vague effect that President McKlnley
has not yet begun to formulate a Cuban
policy, and that under no circumstances
does he contemplate the necessity of
having to proceed beyond the peaceful
processes of diplomatic negotiation
with Spain. These smooth-sounding
Interviews will do to take the edge
off the Immediate situation and allay
the anxiety of the commercial element;
but any man acquainted with the his
tory of the Cuban problem must by
this time realize that soft soap will not
work out the final solution.
There is one end and only one end
to expect and to prepare for. It may be
leached soon or It may be long defer
red, but when it does come It will take
the form of force. Spain has got to be
forced to let go the throat of Cuba and
the United States Is the power which
must do the forcing. You can wink
and blink at this ugly fact as much as
you please, but there It Is, and there It
will remain. All the mushy negotia
tion which shall Intervene will be sim
ply the manoeuver for position which
precedes the final encounter.
McKlnley's election saw the first cleft
In the solid south; and It looks as If
McKlnley's administration would
achieve the honor of Its complete dls-
The Passing of Parkhurst.
The formal announcement by Rev.
Dr. Charles H. Parkhurst from his pul
pit of his withdrawal from the posi
tion of public reformer, save In so far
as such a position Is Involved In his
pastoral relation; In other words, the
relinquishment by him of the custo
dianship of publlo morals Involved In
hla active presidency over the New
York society for the suppression of
vice, offers occasion for a brief word
In estimate of his career.
Dr. Parkhurst, we believe, was and
Is sincere. He Is, for zeal, a man
among ten thoutund. When he went
out to the attack upon Tammany It
meapt a fight, and In fights some ugly
weapons must be used. He used some.
It Is still ppen to question whetner he
did not make a mistake In the choice
of his -weapons. The "going Jnto hell
for evidence," as ho expressed It, be
fitted better a detective than a Chris
tian minister, and tho participation in
orgies with nude women, albeit under
taken with a righteous Intent, set fire
to vicious Imaginations and wrought
great harm perhaps more harm than
good. Still, Dr. Parkhurst gripped fast
to his victim, and, through thick and
thin, bulldog-like, held on until he land
ed the culprit where he wanted him.
Charles H. Parkhurst, at Infinite cost
to himself, made It posslblo for the big
city of New York to have one brief
spasm of virtue, and If then he had
stopped It would have been well. But
he kept on. The spasm over, the par
oxysm spent, vice and evil opened
again at the old stand; Dr. Parkhurst
tiled to repeat the attack, but It was
burnt powder and the community
rassed him by. It Is not Parkhurst's
fault that his crusade ended In wreck
and chaos. He did his part nobly.
None In our day has done more brave
ly, more daringly, more recklessly. The
episode simply shows that the con
tract of municipal purification Is Im
possible of fulfilment until the good
people are willing to work at It day
through and night through, year In and
year out, until it Is done.

police In tho Maher- Sharkey fight was
clearly Justified If the published re

The law legalizing' boxing exhibitions
was never Intended to cover the use

poses. And now tho London National Re
view calls 'Squire Smalley's contribu
tions to the London Times "drivelling
rubbish" and asks the Thunderer to
"mitigate the blind ferocity of Its rep
resentative In New York." Surqly
here Is a casus belli.

From the New York Sun.
In tho June. number of tho London Na
tional Review, which represents more
faithfully than any other English periodi
cal tha views of the present Conservative
government, tho editor discusses ut some
length tho Cuban question. This, ho does,
not because the present deplorable condi
tion of Cuba or the future disposition of
the island materially affects any British
interest; but in the name of humanity,
civilization, and decency he protests
agulnst the further toleration by tho
United States of the Inhuman methods of
warfaro practiced by Weyler, not only
with tho connivance but with the dellant
approval of the Madrid authorities. He
holds that it Is for the United States alone
to Interpose, since 'they havo repeatedly
warned European governmenta i.ot to
meddle with the Queen of the Antilles.
The National Review Is alive to the sin
cerity and fervor of the agitation In this
country for the deliverance of Cuba. It is
compared for depth and Intensity to the
Armenian agitation which convulsed Eng
land last autumn, and Is pronounced Infi
nitely moro disinterested than was tho
Greek passion to liberate Crete. The fact
Is noted that Cuba Is the same distance
from Florida that Ireland is from Wales,
or that Crete Is frcm Greece. The Review
recalls with Indignation that when con
scientious Americans ask, "How are we
discharging the responsibilities which wo
assumed when we bade Europe hold
aloof?" they have been told "You mustn't
speak too loud, or your consuls In Cuba
will be atsasjtrated." Such an answer
would certainly not have the effect of
pacifying Englishmen under similar cir
cumstances. To this British observer, who has been
at great pains to acquaint himself with
tho facts, It seems clear that, even If a
miracle happened, und Spain at the elev
enth hour triumphed over tho Insurrec
tion, the island would be irretrievably
ruined. It Is pointed out that Cuba
wouM be saddled with a debt, the inter
est on which would be $30,000,000 per an
num, and with an army of occupation
numbering, at least, 100.000 men, which,
even under honest administration, would
cost $75,000,000 annually; In fine, with oth
er expenses, the total budget of tho
Island would be over $100,000,000, for Cuba
can expect no assistance from the mother
country, which will have to repudiate her
own obligations In any case. How would
It be possible for the Island to sustain
such a burden, seeing that It has never
been able under the most favorable condi
tions to produco more than $30,000,000 a
year In fixes, and iho war has utterly de
stroyed Its resources? As for the now
reiterated promise of reforms, this is rec
ognized by the National Review, no less
than by all Intelligent Americans, as a
From tho Philadelphia Press.
TheRepubllcan senate caucus has ex
hilarated Republicans end encouraged
good men of all parties throughout the
country. It relieves1 the party from the
danger and odium of a sugar scandal
and It assures the early completion of
(tho tjarlfl legislation. Ever sln the
sugar schedule was reported In the sen
ate a cloud has hung over tho prospect.
The complete abandonment of that sched
ule both In ills principle and In its sub
stance removes the most serious obstacle
In tho pathway of tho bill and opens
the way to rapid action and early settle
ment. This gratifying result Is a triumph of
earnest and outspoken publlo discussion.
Whether the senate would have ac
quiesced In the committee's sohedule If
there had been no general protest, Is un
certain; but what Is to Its credit la that U
has promptly heeded the remonstrances
and effectively killed the provision which
the sugar trust desired. The action of a
Republican committee did not of Itself
command the assent of Republicans. They
refused to accept a questionable measure
from that eource un9ooner than from
any other source. 1 ty treated It abso
lutely upon s merits without regard to
Its origin, and their objections have com
pelled Its abandonment.
The schedule as adopted by the caucus
Is substantially the house provision. The
difference Is not one of principle or meth
od, but aolely one of rote at a single point
and It ! a small difference. The differ-
entail In favor of the refiners Is about
one-ilxtecnth larger. It may give them
a little more protection than they need
In the judgment of thoso most conver
sant with tho question It does give them
an excess. But whether too much or not,
it in an honest figure given with honest
motives and bearing honcvt scrutiny. It
was proposed by Senator Bpooner, whose
attitude and relations on this subject are
Irreproachable, and Us prompt and unani
mous acceptance by the caucus speaks
well for tho spirit and purposo of the Re
publican senators If It Is a lltt'jo too
high It may safely be left to be fought
out In the conference commltteo with the
representatives of tho house.
Whether It shall stand or whether the
lower) houso fraction shall bo finally
adopted, tho action will be such as the pco.
pie can understand and It, will be free
from opprobrium. The new scnedule scaU
ters the whole pestilent brood of ad val
orem duties. It renounces and repudiates
tho complex system of compound rates
and returns to the simple. Intelligible and
Just basis of specific duties. It obliterates
the chance of undervaluation frauds and
strips tho mask off from any scheme of
concealed protection. The measure of
duty will bo open and undisguised and tho
government will know Just what It can
count upon, and tho people will under
stand Just what they are paying.
We count this as the best day's work
that has been dbno since the tariff bill
left the house. It dlspo'.s the spectre or
another sugar scandal which Republicans
havo feared, and It vindicates the Integ
rity and rectitude with which the party
can deal with a question' fraught with
corruption and danger. The resolution
of Iho senators to stand together pre
pares the way for an early conclusion.
There will doubtless be provisions in the
bill to which objection can fairly be mado.
But they will not have tho taint of cor
ruption, end differences of detail can well
bo overlooked In a measure generally ac
ceptable and can well be subordinated to
the advantage of a prompt settlement.
TAUGHT BY fcXFEMENCE.
From the Allegheny Record.
The action of Brazil In abandoning fctato
ownership of railroads must attract at
tention of all students of socialism. Tho
attempt of tho Brazilian government to
make the railroads profitable has not been
successful financlallly, and it has re
cently offered to lease tho entire sys

bonus of $70,000,000, this banue to cover the

erty In good order at the end of that pe
riod. No further obligation Is incurred,
except the ordinary taxes. Two syndi

ists, in which Henry Krupp, the gun man
ufactuier, was prominent, and '.he other
of English bankers who already havo
large Interests In Brazil and other South
American companies presented Informal
proposals which, however, did not comply
with tho conditions, and were not con
sidered by the authorities. Some of tho
Brazilian roads which used to pay divi
dends before tho government took con
trol began to run behind almost Imme
diately upon the assumption of govern
ment ownership. Thus tho Central rail
road, which formerly paid a 9 per cent,
dividend, has been costing tho govern

earned. This is true In measure of the
THE FOOL AND HIS HIKE.

There Is no disposition to decry the bi
cycle. It Is an improvement in the meth
ods of locomotion which has come to stay
until something better is Invented. As a
means for healthful exercise and for get
ting about It Is so long an advance over
old methods that It is likely to hold its
own for many years. But there Is a vust
difference between a reasonable, watch
ful man or woman on a bicycle and a fool
on a bike. The former has some sensible
object in view, either exercise, general
pleasure or business, but the latter ex
ists simply to astonish peoplo at the risks
he can run and tho number of persons he
can Just scrape running over; and some
times he falls to escape the latter. Tho
latest fad of a fool on a bike is to rldo
"hands off." This, of course, increases
the risk to both rider and pedestrian and
makes It so much "funnier" for the for
mer. If an accident occurs, why that Is
