Anarchy in Pennsylvania. For some weeks a strike has been in j progress al the works of the Pressed Steel Car Company at .VlrKees Rock*", Pa. All efforts to adjust the differences between the workers and the company have failed. The company has endeavor ed to resume operations through the'em ployment of strike breakers, but with lit tle success, owing to the vigilance with which the strikers have patrolled the ap proaches and either dissuaded their suc cessors from continuing or physically prevented them from going to work- i Troopers of the state constabulary have J patrolled tlie streets of McKees Rocks in J conjunction with the local police, but j ha\?e been unable to prevent disorder | from time to time. I.ast evening the ? tiouble culminated in a pitched battle be- I tween the constabulary and the strikers, : with the resylt that six are known to j have been shot to death and two others | are believed to have been killed. A 1 dozen men are in the hospitals fatally injured, while at least two score men, | women and children are suffering from bullet wounds and injuries inflicted by clubs and stones. A dispatch from Pittsburg this morn- i ing. explaining the origin of the collision, , says: "For weeks the strikers have been holding up street cars and ordering the occupants of them out. Heretofore all have be.-n obeyed. I.ast night, however, three troopers and a deputy sheriff were passengers, and. being armed, refused to be ordered about by the strikers. They insisted, and for twenty minutes a battle ensued." In other words, for weeks past the | strikers at McKees Rocks have been practically running the town, doing as they please, arming themselves for bat tle, interrupting traffic and ordering peo ple. even officers of the law, about as , they wished. The show of force made by the state has been, as usual in such cases, inadequate, and only of a charac ter to spur the lawbreakers on to further deeds of violence. Last night's riot was not the result of an effort on the part of the authorities to enforce the law, or to maintain order, or to protect property and the right of men to work as they choose. It was simply the consequence of four men determining to protect them selves alien beset by a mob. It is the almost invariable rule in in dustrial disturbances of this character that the authorities begin by temporizing and end with the adoption of drastic measures. Probably now the state militia will be ordered to the scene, unless yes terday's trouble brings the strikers to a realization of their responsibility. Then there may be more encounters, possibly with scores of lives sacrificed to the in sensate fury of the mob and the tardy determination of the authorities to main tain their prestige. It would seem as though Pennsylvania had had enough experiences of this char acter to guide the officials of both state and cities in handling a strike situation. The coal fields have furnished numerous examples of the folly of waiting for a sense of law to return to the belligerent workingmen. In both Pittsburg and Phil adelphia there have been street railway strikes necessitating the use of force, which has been almost Invariably applied too late to be effective with the least possible cost In life. The situation at McKees Rocks now calls for the exercise of the utmost measure of strength in the state, not merely to enable the corporation affected to operate its plant, as it has a perfectly legal right to do. but to demonstrate that it is not possible in this country and In these times for a mob to overturn the statutes and to defy all the principles of public security. Park-Seeing Vehicles. It is just as well that the proposition to run large sight-seeing automobiles through Rock Creek Park, for the ac commodation of visitors who lack their own means of conveyance, has been abandoned. These great vehicles would probably injure the roads and perhaps also the foliage. They certainly would not add particularly to the attractiveness of the park. The suggestion has been made that a tally-ho be adopted of a design similar to those used in other cities. This would be an excellent equip ment for park-seeing facilities, and would probably draw a sufficient patron age to render a comfortable profit on the investment. It is to be hoped that some enterprising person or company will seek and secure the permit to main tain such a line of coaches, connecting with the car lines and traversing the main roads in the park. If, however, no offer is received of a satisfactory char acter from the outside, the Commission ers might possibly find authority in law to equip a public line under their own auspices, the fares received to defray expenses and in case of a profit, as is altogether likely, to effect improvements in the service. It is to be remembered in this c onnection that the more attractive the service the larger the patronage will he, and it behooves any one who under takes this work of affording access to the interior of the park to provide the most comfortable and best looking ve hicles possible and to establish as low a iate of fare as is compatible with the reasonable requirements of business. There la something strange in having a President who can take a vacation with out keeping the correspondents on the tiui vive concernlns his fishing or gunning record. Slates that adopt prohibition may hope to escape a great deal of mental wear and tear over the query, "What Is whisky?" Mr. Harriman's Home-Coming. Mr. Harriman's confidential secretary is quoted as follows: "Mr Harriman is one of the most demo cratic men I know, and has no desire to evade the public. It will he his desire to land as any private citizen might. One of the big tugs of the southern Pacific fleet will meet the Kaiser Wilhelm II in the lower harbor and take Mr. Harriman without demonstration to the Krie rail road station, where, unless bis plans are , hanged, he will meet reporters and they can judge of his condition for themselves. The talk of his being met at sea by h private yacht and hurried to his homo at Arden under such close guard as sur rounds only a czar is bosh.'' Thh Is a fair proposition, and presum ably the newspapers will accept it. But, clearly, the assignment is not otic f??i" | the average, regular reporter. He could 1 only tell whether Mr. Harrlman was pale or rosy, walkerl with or without assist- 1 anee. looked fit or otherwise. An opinion j from such a source would settle nothing J as re.-pects Mr. Harriman's real physical condition. If a report of this kind and in this way i is to be made, why not by experts? Why ! should not specialists bp put on the job? Mr. Harriman, we are told, lias can er of the stomach, an affection of the spine, in somnia, and several other grave ills. Be fore the country will be satisfied on the point, there must be sinned articles from professional sources. As an illustration, the Bazoo, to pre serve its reputation for enterprise, must commission Dr. Quick, an authority on stomach troubles: Dr. Keen, an authority on the spine; Dr. English, an authority on insomnia, and several other doctors, to cover the case for it. and give their re ports each over its author's signature. Only in that way will its readers be as sured. Of cours >. Mr. Harriman must be ad vised of the arrangement and braced for ' the ordeal. It will not be a matter of ! saluting a score or more alert young men ; with something hearty, like. "Well, boys, j I'm glad to see you. What can I do fot j you?" It will require a different manner | and tone to face a score or two of spe- | cialists, the majority of them spectacled. [ and all looking; serious and determined, j He would be glad to escape with saying, , "Gentlemen, I am in good condition, and j hop? you will so report me to the public." j But he may be asked to stop, and sub mit to a little thumping and sounding, and to show his tongue. The confidential secretary has probably committed his chief to a new and trying experience. Showing a man to disprove alarming reports about his health calls for a competent jury, and for a first rat? "front" on the part of the "ac cused." The newspapers will attend to the jury, all may believe. Assignments will be made with care, and that a few specialists will find employment is much more than likely. How will Mr. Harri man stand the pressure? That he Is under the weather is not denied. Will , this challenge develop his fighting quali- ; ties and make him appear stronger than ! he really is, or depress him for the mo- | mjnt below his actual condition? It is! going to be a remarkable home-coming, j Auto Slaughter. Five lives were sacrificed last week at Indianapolis in the course of a series of automobile races on a track course, j These races demonstrated nothing what- j ever in the matter of automobile manu- ; facture or development. They were of no particular value to the manufacturers of motor cars. They were held as a means of public entertainment, and pos sibly with the idea of interesting the people in motoring as a sport. Whether they did as much good as harm to the prestige of automobiling is a question. The five lives that were destroyed will surely reckon heavily in the final equa tion, and it is to be doubted whether the public will feel as kindly disposed toward the automobile, either as a prac tical device or as a means of enter tainment. as it did before. In an effort to prevent in the future the recurrence of such accidents as those that happened last week at Indianapolis, certain rules are to be adopted, it is reported, governing the construction of the tracks and the placing of the pub lic. as well as regulating the number of men on a car. It is proposed to pro hibit participation by a driver in any race for more than 100 miles at a stretch and to examine him physically before permitting his re-entry. It is believed that these precautions will prevent such mishaps as those that cost respectively two and three lives at Indianapolis. It is to be doubted whether they will. As long as these cars are sent along race courses, either country roads or inclosed tracks, at express locomotive speed, tragedies will be enacted. There is no human possibility of preventing disasters when motors are worked up to from sixty to a hundred miles an hour. Neither the man nor the machine can stand such a strain, and the sooner tRe automobile manufacturers take a hand to put a stop to these frenzied exhibitions of speed the better it will be for the industry. Debs. Eugene V. Debs, addressing a large Boston audience yesterday, frankly ad mitted that it rested with the people whether he would be President of the United States. This makes Mr. Debs a receptive candidate. Will the people in sist? They have had several chances to call Mr. Debs to the post of honor, but failed to improve them. He is not grow ing younger, and if he is to be called at all it must be soon. From this latest deliverance it is clear that he does not intend to take the office bv force. It is now doubted whether the Marathon | race mentioned in Grecian history ever | happened. However, there can be no pos- j sible question about the Marathon being j a modern reality. No English alarmist will go so far as to suspect that America's war games have any shadow of significance for the British home. Edison has been quoted as saying our civilization is too rapid. The great in ventor has done as much as anybody to hefli hurry things along. Barefoot dancing has become so great a fad that the names of chiropodists may be looked for on next season's theater programs. Of course, Mr. I?oeh's duties in the col lection of customs will subject him to criticism. But Mr. I>oeb is used to criti cism. There is no denying that Mr. Taft makes life less interesting for tha popu lace of Beverly than Mr. Roosevelt did for the merry villagers of Oyster Bay. It will soon be time for E. H. Harri man to be back in his office seeing that his railway interests get their share of the prosperity. New York Car Disorder. New York Sunday disorder on the street cars and ferry boats has been a matter of general comment for some time, and decidedly uncomplimentary have been the references to the failure of the authorities in the big city to keep order on the Sab- j bath on the lines of public travel. It has been the habit of the rough element of the city to swarm to the resorts and places of amusement early in the day, lake full possession of them wherever i possible, behave with the utmost disre- ! gard of propriety and comfort of oth- j ers. and finally, on the way home, by surface, elevated ard subway cars, to range roughly through the trains and insult and even assault men, women and ! children, virtually with impunity. Yes terday an effort was made by the police I to maintain order. Secret instructions j were issued early in the day. and plain i clothes men were scattered among the | traction lines and on the ferry boats. Som- of the rowdies were arrested on the way out, with the consequence that much better order was maintained at the resorts. But the police were chiefly busy during the evening, when the toughs be , gati to return. Two hundred arrests were made. One hundred rolicemen in plain clothes co-operating with the trac tion people gave the toughs the warmest reception they have had in many years. \t the first sign of disorder in any car signals were given and the officers closed in upon the trouble maker. At each stop the prisoners were unloaded and bundled into the patrol wagons which were In waiting. The campaign worked so well that travel on the different lines was comparatively safe, though punctuated with frequent scrimmages between the police and the toughs. Half of the prisoners were under sixteen years of as;!. These were sent to the Gerry So i:et> for arraignment later in the chil dren's court. Others were stuffed into the pen of the Jefferson Market court, where a magistrate who was holding a special session worked overtime dispos ing of the cases. Workhouse sentences were iianded out liberally, while fines were administered in large sums. It is hoped that this lesson will be lasting, and that Sunday travel on the public lines hereafter will be safe and peaceful. But experience with the New York toughs suggests that one lesson will not suffice for a cure of the evil conditions, btit that for a long time plain clothes men pa trolling will be necessary to enable the people to ride without being pummeled and jostled and affronted with shocking language and conduct. The question "After the airship, what?" is being propounded. A reliable para chute might be worth considering as the next numb r on the program of progress. Events have developed the fact that there is still a great deal of wealth in Venezuela that Castro did not manage to get hold of. In a short time theatrical producers will again be heard in melancholy depre cation of the public taste that demands shocking plays. SHOOTING STARS. BY PHILANDER JOHNSON. Conscientious Response. "What made you start in clapping your hands when that woman stepped on your foot in the railway car?" "1 was dozing," answered Mr. Cumrox. "1 thought mother and the girls were hav ing a musical and one of them was sig naling that it was time to applaud." The Merry Wag. "Did you say that was a Panama hat?" "No," answered the merry wag. "1 said it was a Colon hat." "A Colon hat?" "Yes. Colon is near Panama." Human Generosity. Hard work is something very tine And every one should have his share; Vet each says, "Help yourself to mine, 1 have enough and some to spare!" Handicapped. "Precocious children do not always grow j up to be geniuses." "No." answered Miss Cayenne. "Some-j times they are kept so busy thinking up odd things for their fathers to tell down town that they neglect the ordinary branches of education "De reputation foh a good disposition," said I'ncle Eben, "is sometimes de result of plain laziness. When I hears 'bout a: man who wouldn't hurt a fly, I can't help thinkin' bout how hard it is to git close enough to a fly to do any damage." A Picture. A line of hills and a billowing mist, A splash of waves on the pebbled shore Where the roots of the great trees gnarl and twist As a light wind flutters the surface o'er. A lake that has found a place so high That it can mirror without delay Each passing mood of its comrade sky In loyal sympathy day by day. How vain is the painter's splendid skill To hold enchained by his arts so strange The beauty that shifts and Is never still And grows more wondrous with every change! Eight Billions. From the Philadelphia Inquirer. Almost incomprehensible figures come out now and then in the reports of steel corporations, manufacturing interests, the carrying trade of the railroads. We read the returns from mines?gold,'silver, cop per?and because of the growing output we think of mines as the source of the greatest wealth. But after all. it is the farmer of the land who is of the greatest importance. The aggregate wealth that he produced during the year 1SHJ8 borders upon the unbelievable. Nevertheless, Sec retary of Agriculture Wilson is on hand with proofs of a nature that they must be accepted. The farmer turned out in dairy products alone last year nearly JSOO.iKXMXJO. His hens worked for him to such an extent that eggs and poultry were worth as much as the cotton crop or the hay crop or the wheat crop. He raised corn meal to the value of 000.onn. With such figuies to begin with, we are prepared to learn that the farm products of the crop >ear of 11 MS totaled the tremendous amount of *7,778,tNHl.imo. Would it be surprising to discover later on that for the crop year of !!*!!? the total was- fully eight billions. Save Automobiling. From the Xpw York World. ? The automobile should be a beneficent invention. Properly used, it is safer than a horse-drawn vehicle. It can be guided more accurately and stopped more quick ly. It knows neither fright nor fatigue. Of proper weight and speed and when unprovided with spikes or chains, it does not destroy the roads. For trucking, for use as a farm wagon, for omnibus work and as a pleasure vehicle the automobile should be invaluable. Such use of It al ready is made, but the speed-maniacs, who destroy the roads, who try to kill bridge-tenders and policemen and who do in so many cases kill themselves and others have badly hurt a great industry. Neither on track nor road has the high power auto any legitimate function. It is an express engine running wild, without guiding rails, protected crossings or safe ty signals?a thin;- unthinkable. Prudent men who use autos for pleasure or busi ness are at the mercy of the maniacs. Sweet Scents. I-'rom the Columbus Ohio State Journal. An English chemist says that half a million dollars may be made by any one who creates a new perfume, and we would give that amount if we had it to any one who would eliminate some of the old ones. An Unusual Woman. From the Pittsburg I>i*pat<-li. The New York woman who waited until a messenger boy came to button her baclf must have had more patience than most husbands would have thought possible. Rattles the Bones. From the Chicago Tribune. Connecticut has passed a law legalizing Sunday base ball. An examination of the puritan graves would show a commotion. Will Stay There. From t he Boston Herald.
