The same conditions exist in cearly ever; state in the anion. The efforts of each papers as the Scran ton Truth should be sustained by every newspaper in that etate and in every other state. The press of the land should join together, not in asking for better laws, but in demanding them. It is quite within their power to obtain laws that are equitable to the public and the press, and if there is bat. a con certed action taken' to obtain them. The- Truth in its article says : The need of a just libel law in Penn sylvania is, illustrated almost daily in the eager haste with which the litigious and the unscrupulous seize upon the slightest pretext to proceed against honest and painstaking newspapers un der the pretense of being damaged by the publication of the most colorless and unbiased record of the news of the day. Rascals who, if they had their real deeerts, would be in the rogue's gallery, are permitted to pose as injured plaint- 1 9 Just Received a new line of T i r in sizes to fit big and little. Greene The Hatter. Fleming Block. Rambler Bicycle ? Aw July 4th ? Summe Shirts iffs under our lax libel laws, and there is no scarcity of thieving shysters in any considerable community who are willing to take up euch cases either for revenge because they themselves have been the subjects of honest criticism for the public good, or because they expect to profit personally by' prospective plunder. There is not an honest man in any community who does not know that his reputation is safe at the hands of every honest newspaper, and there Is not an honest newspaper that is not called upon frequently to make room in its columns for information, in the interest of the public, concerning the shady antics of scallawags and knaves who are anxious to be known as reputable citizens. Fellows who would not scruple to separate husband and wife, to rob a poor man of the proceeds of his prop erty, to swindle the widow and the orphan, and even to "steal the pennies off a dead man's eyes," are usually among the first to declare they are libeled if an unbiased notice of their knavery appears in the columns of a daily newspaper. As a general thing, the press has no more for or against such creatures than it has for or against the respectable skunk, saving the skunk's presence : yet there is such a thing as a Iibe! law to be appealed to, and so these savory characters, acting upon the advice of Hamlet to his mother, when he tcld her, "assume a virtue if you have it not," proceed in their virtuous indignation to vindicate their moth-eaten reputations. A FEMININE BOYCOTT. The women of the Kansas Equal Suffrage association are highly indig nant at the way in which their cause was snowed under at the last election. At a picnic held this week a vote was passed that amounts practically to a boycott of all the men who were indif ferent to the suffrage measure. Because 117,000 declared themselves against woman suffrage and 31,000 showed their opposition by remaining silent, it was resolved, on motion of Miss Susan B. Anthony, "that it is the duty of every self-respecting woman in the state of Kansas to fold her hands and refuse to help any moral, religious, charitable, reform or political association until the men oi the state shall strike the adjec tive "male" from the suffrage clause of the constitution, and thereby declare that woman's opinion shall be re Bpected and counted at the ballot-box as are all men's opinions outside of the state penitentiary, the idiot and the lunatic asylums." In the meantime the women of Kan sas will permit things to come to a standstill and will punish the apathy of their brothers by a passive assault upon charitable and religious work, which could have had no hand in the defeat of woman suffrage. All the women of Kansas, we are pleased to say, are not engaged in this boycott of religion, morality and char ity; only the "self-respecting women," who, by the way, seem to be acquiring respect from no other direction. The determination of the council yesterday to codify and compile the city ordinances was timely, though it might have been profitably done ear lier. The trifling sum which the codi fixation will cost becomes more trifling in comparison with the present incon venience, uncertainty and risk, to say nothing of the absolute loss to the city and individuals in litigation growing out of the jumbled condition of the or dinances. The work is fortunately placed in the hands of City Attorney Evans, who, beside being an able and skillful lawyer, has had extensive ex perience in this particular kind of work. Having finished his campaign in be half of "sound money," Secretary Car lisle can now devote himself to the preparation of another series of bonds, as the gold reserve has begun to dwindle, and it will be necessary to sell more bonds to keep it intact. This backing and filling process isn't exactly finan ciering, but it serves the purpose of the gold and bond syndicate, which appears to be the great aim of the administra tion. An Oakland man, who seeks a cheap notoriety, sleeps in a coffin and has the fact published to the world. If he really wishes to mortify his body and prepare his spirit for its separation from the body, he ehould abide in a Carthusian monastery, and when his weary body ia at rest his bones will serve as paving stones for weary feet to walk upon. Thure is no notoriety in this, though. A well-known MINISTER sends a very lengthy communication to a contem porary complaining about the great in justica to bicyclists that the bicycle ordinance does, and censuring in severe terms the bicycle police for simply doing their duty. Did it ever occur to the gentleman that all the evils of which he complains coald be cured by prohibiting bicycles on all sidewalks? There will probably be a rise in sugar and in cigars in the early autumn, because the rebellion makes it impos sible for the Cubans to secure money to harvest more than halt their crop, and unless the. deficiency shall be made up from South America and Mexico, it looks as though there would be a- short supply. Gladstone appeals to the liberals of England to "vindicate the rights of the house of commons as the organ of the nation, and establish the honor of England," by conceding "the just con stitutional claimB of Ireland." What a grand old man this Grand Old Man is ! " 'The West' does not begin, nowa days, until the middle of Ohio, at least," says the Boston Traveler. It is 6afe to say that the west does not begin until the Mississippi is crossed ; and it is not quite certain that it begins until the Missouri is crossed. Every paper in the country has sug gested a name for little Miss Cleveland, but not one has suggested that it be called Frances. The Republican sug gests this name for her, a name honored by the whole American people. Mr. Cleveland may or may not want a third term, but he is not such a tyro in politics as to have his secretary of war feel the pulse of his party on the question when cn an official tour of in spection over the country. A Boston paper says that the "De fender" has strained her braces. Why not be up to date and say she hae strained her suspenders? There may not be any such letter writers today as Mme. de Sevigne was, but the modern typewriter is a very satisfactory substitute. Ex-President Harrison has followed the example of Tom Reed and taken to the woods. It 5s a wise step and will prove delightful. The motto of the Christian Endeav orers seems to be: "At first you don't succeed, endeavor, endeavor again." There is good ground for asserting that death lurks in a kiss. Whoever kissed the Scottish Maiden died. The president is as great at writing letters in praise of domestic felicity as in praise of the gold standard. The "new woman" has more rustle, while the "old woman" had more bustle. G. A. R. Cheap Kailroad Excursion. The wisdom of the national commit tee in selecting a city eo centrally lo cated, easy ot access, as. Louisville, Ky., for the twenty-ninth annual encamp ment of the Grand Army of the Repub lic, September 11th to 14th, if fully justified, judging from the numerous inquiries received from all parts of the country relative to transportation facili ties, passenger rates, limits of tickets, etc. In anticipation of a very large atten dance, the Baltimore & Ohio South western railway (formerly the O. & M. B'y), the leading route to Louisville from the west, north and east, has made preparations to afford visitors every facility, both in the way of low rates add fast trains, handsomely and comfortably equipped, from all its ter minal points. Three daily trains St. Louis to Louisville; two trains daily (except Sunday) Beardstown and Springfield to Louisville; three daily trains Cincinnati to Louisville; two daily trains Parkersburg to Louisville. Rate via B. & O. S-W R'y will not ex ceed one cent per mile. Tickets will be on sale September 8th to 11th, in clusive1, good returning until. October 5th, 1895. One of the principal events following the close of the encampment will be the dedication of the Chickamauga Nation al Military Park, Chattanooga, Tenn., to which excursion rate from Louis ville, Ky., will not be higher than one cent per mile. In addition there will be cheap excursions run from Louis ville to the various battlefields in the vicinity. The citizens of Louisville are a unit in their expression of according to their guests a royal eutertainment during the encampment. Any further particulars desired will be cheerfully furnished on application to A. C. Goodrich, passenger agent of the B. & O. S-W. Ry., Kansas City, Mo., or to J. M.
