Nov, i Tin: law against theft i more tbtn IghtMU litinilrtnl yenra old; but it has its good points. Thursday Is Flat; Day. Next Thursday, it should not ho for gotten, is Flag Dsjr, and the patriotic citizens will do well to recoKiiizJ it by a Irtvlih display or Old Glory, lo the Bcbools appropriate exercise will fit tintfiy ropplement tho lofty teaebingi of Memorial Pay, and there will be no plico where inu shall gather that will not be tho b?ttor for sum moments of ntteotire study directed to the princi ples which that emblem typifies, It would be especially appropriate if the meaning ot the 11 ix could be ex plained, or partially explained, to all those persons who come here from other countries eipsottog to see a laud f onbonoded liceusa, where eacii man is privileged to do exactly as he pirates, Liberty is a uuuin doar to every truo American; and it should never b abridged. The American Sag, the anniversary of whose adoption will doou be commemorated, is peerless rbovs all otber emblems as the type and symbol of the freest liberty known to man, But it is a liberty that is not ignorant, b sotted, selluii or bestial. It dues not overstep tho bi Tinds of wise decorum and of neces sary self restrain. Ahova all, it does not insist upon its own exeriso at tiie expense of i he general aooi; mid it imver forgets that we liHve. better checks upon our people than ma-:'sive standing urmies and higher destinies for our humble citiz mis than tho abject helplessness which makes them an un complaining prey to official extortion gnd cImss prejudice. If this lesson could ouce be made clear, it would do away with many perplexities in the general outlook. It would then be no longer necessary to eoud the armed militia hand in hand with the employe w.io go:s to taka work that another has voluntarily abandoned. Neither would we have many oases hkii that in Alle gheny connly where the owner of a coal tipple recently sued the county to rSOOVer damages for the loss of that property at the hands of an unchecked mob. Tho tuition would teach the su perior tElcacy of reason, conciliation and coolness over sheer physical force; just as it would on the otber hand teach employtrs to be liberal, humane and slow to let fall the hand which would cause u fellow sovereign and citizen to experience undeserved pain, AS IHHtBSSION exists and is OSre fully fostered by demagogues that the present Sun 'ay law prohibits works of necessity, This is not true. The Inw itself is F.peciac enough on that point; but if it were not, common sense would yet remain the great court of appeal. m Has Carried Its Point. The satirical Washington Pot is hiving a vast deal of fun these days at the expense of Mr. (listen, the Wilkes Usrre wire manufacturer, It is forced fun, and has numerous sng -stions of insincerity. But it is clvr, for all that Even Its victim will enjoy a hearty lsUgh at the artistic manner in which the Post throws public senti ment off the scent by inch ludicrous buffoonery as this: Air. (install, then anonymous, was atnp ping at an op-town hotel, Retiring early, after the manner of virtuous Pennsyl vania wire makers, be was awakened "in the first sweet sleep of nili'" by voices in thnoext room. Of course tbsy were loud voices. Everybody with tho very smallest experience of conspirators knows that tho Invariably talk with tempestuous vigor bo that persona within forty feet can henr t hem. They hide in n secret chamber, to be rare, because that is conventional, That iS always done 0U the stage and in dread ful novels, and naturally it was done m this occasion; but having made that concession to the dramatic verities, the conspirators began to shout at each other so that the wholo hotel Oould hear them. The wire maker lav there, palpitating with emotions too powerful to be eubdusd and took In the plot, in its grisly details. Ho knew that senators were present for their voices be trayed them, ile knew, also, that agents of the sugar trust Were there for ho recog nised that unmistakable accent which, even through n closed door, betrays the sugar trust official to the most careless listener. And so, next morning, he rushed forth to find a congressman or n corres pondent to whom he conld impart his in formation before it exploded and hurst him Into fragments, He found a congress man and told his story. Tho congressman subsequently passed it on to a newspapor man so the great sugar scandal was launched. Wo repeat that this is clover, abom inably clever; and that if tho sugar scandal rented on no firmer basis, the Post's sarcasm would suffhn to Inugh it out of mind. Unhappily for the honor of the American senate, and also with dne deference to Mr. (iaston, tho testimony of the "palpitating Penn sylvania Wire-maker" is the smallest item in tho chain of damaging suspic ion which has coiled Itself about the nondescript senate edition of the VVI1 Bon bill. We have more than Mr. (las ton's insomnia in evidence. We have Secretary Carlisle's opn confession a confession little weakened by bis de nial of criminal intent. We have, in addition, the confession of the sugar trust's own chief lobbyist, who was "spending the winter in Washing ton because of its delightful climato nnd because to reside in such a city was a perfect pleasure to him" a con fession between whose honied lines i ih truth sticks nnt with vividness. And finally, lis damning a fitting i cliuinx, wo liuvo the c'lunotnr of the Democratic pirty ita df built up into symmetry on it diet of falae- j hood, treachery, corrupt bargainiu ! and wantonly violated pledges and i typified in a senate bill which had its i schedules framed in secret, by uection l alists yet reeking with the taint of re hellion, ant) unionism ami avowed purposes of rove:';;.'. tf the sugar trust got its Interests : protected without OOSt, so much tho cleverer, it I The main Tact is that it hue carried its point. I'm Aiu.r. editors of onr esteemed Sunday contemporaries should endeav or to keep cool this warm weather. Their ardor In misrepresenting Tin; TttlBDNE might otherwise bring ou prostration. Tho Vindication of Parkhurst. Ah one of the journals which very early espoused t o cause of U"v. Dr. Parkhurst in his tight for a municipal purification of the metropolis. THE Tribune views with uncommon pride the extraordinary shocks which his heroic initiative hat already won. In every great battle against Vlco there have to be martyrs, Dr. Parkhurst voluntarily assumed this role when, in response to a call of duty, he milled his garments by Intimate contact with tho ovUs ho sought to suppress, and lor that strong action, necessary to tho complete accuracy of his testimony, was derided even by some well-meaning Christians, as a hynoorite, a note rlety seeker, a Pharisee and a fool. The end crowns the work, if it does not in every instance justify the method. Thanks to that one bravo man, who for fifteen years prior to February, 1892, had lived a retired life among his friends, pnrishoners and books, but who, in that month, went out, single handed, to fijht the hydra liendsu abuses of a century's develop ment, wo have, iu scarcely more than a ecoro of m Jiiths, seen the entire po lice system of Now York city ar- raigneu, piuoriea nut convicted as beneficiaries of protected vie; have witnessed prominent pillars iu the pol itical temple wherein those evils were planned whipped into ex le, resigna tion or jail; and hav viewed at work, in a dosen othpr communities, the wholesome influences of his diring ex ample. All this, to bo sure, might have been brought about by some other man employing 8o:u other methods; bnt we are content to be the legatees of tho man and the method! that did achieve this victory. Irrespective of line spun Quibbles or finnioal casuis try, astoiiow ho achieved th:m. We nre cotiteut to thank (iod that when that "suine other man" did not ehov. up, Chnrl-s II. Parkhurst did. lf. is, after all, a diminutive thin1; to do to close one's eys to great moral it llu'tics because there are real or im- aginary fly sp?cks on tue outer vest ments (if the immediate instruments. Progress, in any cause, moves along medial lines; but to reac'.i that con servative resultant there must bo ex- t. emistson either side. Tue citizen whose instincts are true will not per uiit ulmself to be lashed into a frenzy because thoro are many who grow ex cited over minor details of reform. He will remain co.il and calm, fully as sured from the ouiset that tho right result will inevitably appear in due season. TliE ESTEEMED Sunday journal which regaled its readers yesterday with column ot bcrlptiir in nurente.l un common defer 'tic" to tho day. Tho Progressive American Party, The organisation of now political partien la a epcies of gambling that never lacks fascination, It is usually a retempting of fate or chance by men who, while in other org iniz itloni, have playod and lost. Enmotimes it has more substantial basis; but these times are few. It will bo detno'iatr itol in due season whether the SO-oalled "Pro (.ressiyo American Party," secretly or- ganized in Pittsburg last week, shall have to be enrolled among tho organi zuions that fate refuses to favor, or among those whose principles, if not whose nniiie, become part factors iu tli" nation's growth. If tho new dispstobei b correct, this alleged new national party intends to draw for voters upon the member ship o.' four s'cret fraternal orders. These orders.it is estimated, racluds 300,000 voters in Pennsylvania ulono, half of whom reside in Allegheny county. This is of itsolf would con demn the tff jrt as a hopslsst one, for the obvious reason that no pirty founded upon secrecy could hop) for success in a county whose oitlBash!p fights its battles in tho open. A plat form appealing strongly to the common sense need not bar tho doors of the room wherein it is debated. When those doors are barred, the fact at ouce excites suspicion. Thero is much uncertainty, apparent ly, as to what the new platform is. I: is said that one of it planks pledget the party to resist all attempts at sectarian interference with the publio schools. Another urges the enactment of n pro tective tariff with u constitutions! amendment permittingitto be modified only once in tvventy-fivo years, Tho present national banking system is de nounced, federal control of railroads It urged and a uniform pension Of $3 to each veteran ia demanded. It will ho seen that this is a curious hodge podge, I flavored liberally with socialism; but it may bo merely conjectural. We prefer to await the arrivul of more definite information before worrying about this particular political infant. Citizens of Altoona have jnst or ganiled a law and order league; Wash ington and Baltimore are to be "Park hursltd" and even Chicago is insorling a thin wedge of reform in the shape of a crusude against the deadly cigarette. Systematic law defianco is evidently falling into disrepute. It is announced that a large delega tion of Pittsburg business men is pre paring to go to Washington, to urge prompt action on the pending tariff bill. Such a journey would be labor wasted. This congress doesn't care what business men think; if it did, it would instantly adjourn without day It was to have been expected that the Pennsylvania grango would oppos all efforts torepoul or amend the auti oleomnrgarine law. Nevertheless the interests of food consunvrs will even - ually prevail, It scienoe oau underbid the udder of the cow, law will no; long prevent science from doing it. It WOUMJ relieve uncertainty If tho in!miuitr,itio:i would kindly indicate when It has reached its decisive deci- lion with reference to the Kingston Mtoffleo.

"Fall of Babylon, wbtoli takes placo at the Frothingbam on the 28th and 29th of this mouth. Three ! i -""Tjif and four rehearsals ! ir'iL' t f are being held with vun ... i oi nuiiiiiv. each day, and t in' finest performance ever given by local talent is promised. The oratorio is by Bntterfield mid is of TAI.I.Ii: vouoAN. intensely dramatic interest and power, while tho music is both pleasing mid Of high order. Tho Sacred Music soci ety, which will give the work; ii tho n - rganlssd uosp- i cnoir, wtitcn gave such excellent service at the H. 1'ay Mills revival in this city. Every voice has been tested by the conductor, Mr. Morgan, and nearly 500 has been nd milted. This chorus has held weekly rehearsals from the time of the Mills meetings up to the present time, and the average attendance bus been over " 10. It is simply wonderful what improvement the singers have made, for it must bo renumbered that nearly ull the members of this chorus never before sang iu any choir. It Is said by those that know that inch faithfulness on the part of linger in attending the rehearsals was never known before in this city. Not only are the evening rehearsals well at tended, but the day rehearsals also. Every afternoon at -1 o'clock about 1G0 young ladies moot for drill march ;', and two or three of tho choruses ulso meot. That the production will be a great success both musically ami dramatically is certain, nnd it is not likely that half of the people who will want to see the performance will be able to secure seats, since the house can be secured for only two nights. Bauer's Orchestra arrived home at an onrly hour ou Saturday morning from Blnghntnton, N. Y at which place they played a three days' engage ment under Messrs. Clark and Dslavan at tho Btone opera home, under the leadership of Professor Jules Jordan, of Providence, It. I , and nccoinpanio I the several urtists from LSoston nnd New York in their singing, also too large chorus or 800 voices in their ren dition of Haydn's "Creation. " The music selected for the festival was classic, and included works lrom Hos sinni, IJich, Qounod, Warner, Meyer beer, I'Totow, Mendlettohn and other lights. It gives us much pleasure to state that our orchestra sustained Scranton's musical reputation by some line work, and that Professor Bauer was the recipient of many flattering remarks. Of tho good work of his men sp"cinl mention should I'm made of his siring quartette, consisting of Messrs, Hem burger, first violin ; Alfred Hippard, second; B J. P-.uer, viola.and Thomas Hippard, 'cello, whoso playing much pleased tae audience. The obligato work of Professor Hemburgtr on the violin, to Mm". Blauvelt'l rendition of "Arietta do RomtO et Juliette," by Qounod, was n masterly piece of work, and called forth great applause. The obligato ou the 'cello by T. Hippard lo Miss Edmunds in her singing "Alls Stella Confidante," wat faultlessly ren dered, as was also the obligato ou the flute bv Theodore Bausobman to Miss Edmunds' rendition in "Ojd's Acre," by Jules Jordan. s e Tho management was well pleased with the work of tho ( rchestra nnd stated that if a festival was given nxt year, Prof. Bauer may consider him self engaged The orchestra of eignt pieces will leave today at 1 110 for To wanda to take part in tho high scUooi exercises ot that place. Tiie season of comic opera at tho Frotbingham has thus far been a sue cess The box office receipts during the past week far f scaedjd the expec tation! of the m snagement and dem onstrated that Scranton looks upon summer opera with favor. While the Msckay Kenny Opera company does not claim to equal in excel leiio, the combinations tnat charge $1.00 per ohalr, it is no disparagement ti otner troupes that have Visited this city to say that the work of the Mackay Kenny company is sup 'dor to that of any populai-prloe opera combination tnat has performed iu Scranton, The rendition of the sextette from "Lucia" introduced in tho second net of "Fra Diavolo" on Saturday evening wan an artistic effort tiiat has seldcm been ex celled by tno beat of high-priced com binations that have visited this ciiy. Miss Jean Slee, tho new contralto at the Ssoond Presbyterian ohurob, is winning the admiration of nil by her excellent work.
