AWF.UL TYPHOID EPIDEMIC
Tho present epidemic of typhoid fever
at Sorauton, Pa., is causing widespread
interest throughout tho country on ac
count of tho hundreds of cases and tho
many deaths which have already oc
curred. It was not until typhoid had heon opt
demic in Scmutou for nearly a month
that any real effort was made to nseur
""tain the source of tho infection, and
o.ven then tho work, was done, not by
tho local authorities, hut by tho state
board of health.
Of eourse, the wator supply was sus
pected from the beginning, but as it
wis tho property of a privato corpora
tion with much local power, there seems
to have been some timidity or dolicncy
ubout fixing tho responsibility with
t)iamful deflniteness, particularly as the
company had warned people to bo eare
ttil how thoy made charges against it
;which thoy couldn't prove. Tlie one
ac,tie moasuro taken, that of shutting
ott'.ouo reservoir and drawing only-from
iuiojthir of better roputo, did not stop
.llio epidemic, tho reason being, as was
discovered later, that thore was a fre
quent flow of water between tho two
and hat their contonts were thoroforo
The state ollicials havo now found the
typhoid bacillus in this water, as it has
been, doubtless, from the beginning, and
efforts are being made to porsundo
everybody to boil all wator used for do
.njtjstic purposes. A general cleaning up
of tho city is also in progress, and it
seoms that this was very badly needed
' so ,badiy tbnt in some cases residents
omjng home after tho health employees
Jiad been nt work there, found it diffi
cult to recognize their -own jirnporty.
There have been in Scranton sinco the
first of December over a thousand eases
of the fever, and the number of deaths
has passed seventy-five, with no present
improvement in the situation. The mon
ey loss hns, of course, been enormous.
This is a big price to pay for what it is
,,iin exaggeration to call criminal neg
ligence on the part of the municipality
as a whole and on tho part of all the
Inhabitants even ordinarily well inform
ed as to sqnitary matters. Of all dis
eases, typhoid is perhaps best under
stood and most easily, though not least
Expensively, prevented. With tho know
Jed ge at hand no case of it can be called
xi misfortune, and still less a "visitation
It always results from the neglect by
Somebody of precautions pf which nei
.iher.the necessity nor the utility can be
denied by anybody not densely ignorant,
'and for every epidemic, if not quito for
every ease, thero is a resjHinsibility that
can and should bo fixed. In several in-
stanqes damage suits have been brought
against towns by those who contracted
the disease or by tleir heirs, and thero
is no reason why these suits should not
be successful. None of them has been,
yet, ,80 far as wo ran recall, but sooner
or later the adequacy of tho cause for
action will be judicially recognized and
then it will bo realized that belated ac
tivity such as that of Scranton now
cannot win forgiveness for gross care
lessness of human life.
REFORMS IN THE STATES
The messages of tho governors of va
rious states roveai very clearly tho gen
eral demand for reforms, especially in
dealjng with corporations, says tho
Washington Post. The dissatisfaction
with existing conditions is pronounced,
and numerous remedies are suggested by
the executives of the states. Tho most
cursory glance at these messages tends
to support Secretary Root's suggestion
that the states have been neglecting tho
oxerciso of their powers. Either this
conelusiop must be reached or it must
-be admitted that tho states havo been
unable to copo with the evils that havo
grown up. Js it neglect or incompotenco
thaafqicts so many of tho states? It
.would bo highly ungracious to suggest
that anything but integrity has ruled
the action of tho state govornmonts.
But this .integrity appears to havo been
.Weak, either in vigilanco or resolution.
Govornor. Folk of Missouri makes so
many recommendations that, if laws
.were to bo enacted accordingly, it might
,k? MJ that tho state would profit by
churning its existing statuto books and
printing new ones. IIo advocates re
forms in tho insuranco laws, tho punish
ment of lobbying, and makes recommen
dations as to child labor, bucket shops,
botting un horso races, regulation of cor
porations, railroad fares, taxation of
corporations, income tax, anti-bribery
laws, public utilities, amondmont of the
federal constitution, and a few othor
Governor Guild of Massachusetts nt
tacks railroad consolidation, bucket
shops, divorco laws, etc., and recom
mends nu inheritance tax. Govornor
Floyd of New Hampshire asks that rail
road passes bo abolished. Govornor
Warner of Michigan Heals with pure
food, railroad fares, prison regulations,
lobbying, banking and Insurance. Gov
ornor Sheldon of Nebraska asks that
legislation regarding Corporations bo en
acted in accordance with ante-election
pledges. Governor 'Higgins of Rhode
Island asks for legislation forbidding
campaign contributions by state or mu
nicipal employees, recommends that
stricter identification bo required of per
sons applying for umrringo liconscs, sug
gests that state officials bo prohibited
from becoming interested in public
works, points out that members of fra
ternal benofi'. associations should bo pro
tected by JaW, and asks that the gov
ernor be given the veto power. Gov
ernor MclHinald of Colorado usks for
anti-trust legislation on tho lines of the
Ohio law, and adds: "Our president
hns done much in behalf of anti-trust
legislation, mil we should sustain him
in his work."
There is very little in the messages
of the governors that furnishes food for
congress. The national government is
abreast of most of the states in work
ing out reforms, if not ahead of thorn.
Instead of recoiving support from the
states in anti-trust and kindred legisla
tion, the national government is in a
position to point tho way iu which the
states could travel with advantage.
JUDGES NOT SUPREME
Common People Aro Inclined to Rate
tho Executive Higher
The sooner our judges and lawyers
get rid of tho notion that they jksscss
despotic authority ovor tho co-ordinate
departments of tho government tho hot
ter it will bo for tho public welfare
The supremo law of this nation is the
many-headed Demos, tho vulgar hord,
the common people, and tho department
of government which they find most use
ful to thorn and which thoy are inclined
to hold in highest respect nt present is
"Great, wiso and good judges" are
no more essential to tho country than
great, wise and good congressmen, and
not half so important to the nation in
mass as a great, wiso and good presi
dent. Wo must havo good judges; that
is a mnttor of eourse; but we must also
have good mon in othor public offices.
Good judges alone will not keep the na
tion from min. Tho fact of the case
is that if we could got laws made wftieh
wero perfectly adapted to tho public
needs, they would bo in a great decree
self-intorproting and solf-exccuting. Tho
need for those dangerous "unwritten
principles" which Judgo Brown talks
of will tend to disappear and tho work
of courts and lawyers will be reduced
to a minimum when tho business of
government is placed where it belongs,
directly in the hands of tho people.
Germany's now famous captain of
Koponick comes of a calling which has
given the world some very great men.
One authority asserts that tho majority
of cobblers have exceptional braius
that their attitude when stooping over
their work tends to cranial development
in the part where the intellectual facul
ties are seated. Someone has written a
book on illustrious shoemakers. In it
aro Sir Cloudoslcy Shovel, Gifford the
Terrible, Uloomfield, author of tho well
known "Farmer's Boy;" Carey, the
Oriontalist; Admiral Myngs, George
Fox, founder of the society of Friends;
John Kitto, tho Biblical scholar; Stur
geon, tho electrician. Tho list of illus
trious shoemakers runs into scores.
'Possum Nearly Kills Cow
Leo Crow, Harry La Roch, Nick Wag
ner and Will Phillips, woll known young
men, were on the hills back of tho city
when they saw a large opossum vicious
ly attacking a cow.
Tho animal was jumping viciously at
the eow, biting it about the nose and
throat, from which blood was streaming
freely. Tho cow wns holplcss to dofend
itsoll from tho attacks of tho opossum,
which would havo killed it had it not
been disturbed. It was so engrossed in
its fight that it did not notice the ap
proach of the trio. They rushed in,
killed it, and brought tho body to town,
where it was weighed, tipping the beam
at ten and one-half pounds. Bollairc,
