Today's Conference of Presidents.
It is truly to be hoped that today's
conference in New York of the sales
agents with the presidents of the prin
cipal anthracite-carrying railroads will
result In a definite adjustment of points
of present difference and be the means
of a permanent settlement of anthra
cite trade conditions. The problem he
fore this meeting Is simple enough
theoretically, to occasion surprise nt
the time required In Its practical solu
tlon. It comprises only two great fac
tors; the coal supply, a fixed, decreas
ing quantity: and the popular demand,
which Is subject to fluctuation In ac
cordance with the temperature, bit
uminous competition, and minor but
palpable Influences. Almost any school
boy could fit these two factors together,
if the railroads would keep their word
It seems as obvious as a plain fact
can be that the railroads cannot profit
permanently by a policy toward ship
pers of hard coal which means loss lo
the latter. With anthracite a diminish
ing natural resource, to throw It Into
an unprofitable market merely to swell
freight receipts Is like robbing the pil
lars of a mine. It Is dangerous nt the
time; and doubly harmful to the fu
ture. That railroad presidents, In a
moment of slack miscellaneous traffic,
Hhould wish to meet the operating ex
penses of their railroads by sapping the
financial vitality of their mines weulil
seem, upon its face, to be utmost an
Incredible statement to mako concern-
'lng experienced business men; but It
Is, alas, the oft-demonstrated fact
Should the time come when the mines
would no longer be nble to lubricate
their car wheels, what would these
presidents think of their policy? And
what would railway share holders think
of the presidents' stewardships?
In a word, what the presidents ought
to do today Is to agree to co-operate In
needed restriction, and then to keep
their agreements. The momentary
losses In freight revenues Incidental to
this policy would, In the long run, be
repeatedly compensated In the fair
price thus obtained for the railroad
companies' coal and In the bettered
prosperity of the mining regions which
must Inevitably mirror Itself In the rail
way traffic reports. It is the case of a
dollar earned now at the expense of
live dollars tomorrow, agalnnt the, loss
of a dollar In freight revenues now, to
be eventually offset five and ten times
over, by gains in both freight and coa
Bales. Who could not choose between
the horn of such a dilemma?- '

Secretary Gresluim may not be th
most popular man In America, at this
writing, but he would nevertheless hnv
the support of every decent citizen If
were to stiffen his back bone and tak
fewer clouts on the ear from foreign
powers. America has outgrown Its
fantlle period in diplomacy, notwlth
standing that some of our recent state
secretaries have apparently not real
lzed the fact.
The duty of this session of congress
j.i iu gei mrougn witn its routine work
ns fast as possible and drop hi to ob
scurity with a dull thud.
A point to be considered In the next
apportionment of congressional dis
tricts at Hanisburg Is that Laelci
wanna county contains, In Scranton,
cme of the most rapidly growing com
munlties In the commonwealth. While
the district ratio must be based upon
the last preceding decennial census,
which shows the Eleventh district to
be apparently 31,813 under size, the
collateral fact need not be overlooked
that Scranton Itself has, In the four
years separating It from 1890, grown In
population almost If not fully enough
to onng Lackawanna's population up
to the requisite 173,901.
In 1890 the federal census jrave this
city only 75,213 population. That may
have been correct, at the time, al
though we suspect it understated the
truth. But today, two different enu
meratlons one upon the bnsls of the
school attendance and another based
upon last spring's city directory
vass estimate the population of Scran
ton at 103.000. This sraln of 2S.000 would
. of Itself, bring the Eleventh district
almost up to the requisite ratio; but
there remains to be mentioned the very
gratifying growth In population of Car-
bondale. Dunmore, Arohbald, Olyphant
and a dozen smaller boroughs in thla
district, the aggregate of which, we
feej quije sure, more than lifts Lack
awanna county up to an equality with
the best-ap'portloriPil districts,. In the
state, without counting the natural "In-'
crease lit the townships. '' -
On. Saturday, . for the purpose of
arousing interest In this Important
phase of the legislature's programme,
we suggested the possibility of the an
nexation to this district of a portion of
Luzemp. ... It , Is . scarcely probable,
though, that the legislature would
lew favorably a carving of counties,
nU'ss where absolutely unavoidable.
It Is more than likely, we suspect, to
save Its Huccessors a deal of trouble by
letting the Eleventh district remain as
It is, upon the plea that It already has
enough population to make a goodly
dlstilct, and that each year adds thou
sands to Its size. The question of re
ducing Luzerne and Schuylkill counties
to smaller proportions Is one for the
members from those counties them
selves to solve. As It Is, Lackawunna

The beautiful ceremonial which the
Elks nnnually observe In their Im
pressive lodges of sorrow for their
departed brothers was locally illum
ined last evening by the reading, by Its
gifted author, John E. Barrett, of a
poem of exquisite sympathy and ten
derness, elsewhere reproduced in this
morning's Tribune. In this feeling
poem Mr. Rnrrott has admirably voiced
the principles which dominate all Elks;
the principles of Charity, Justice and
Brotherly Love with Fidelity surmount-
ng all. Nothing could ba better flitted
for an occasion of Its solemn, yet not
unpleasant character, than was this
pt token of fraternal esteem penned

Speaker Crisp talks very boldly about
the ability of "the majority," which
passed the Income tax, to enforce It.
Has he so soon forgotten ivvliut hap
pened to that majority only four weeks
According to the truest available In
formation, our state department has
been guilty of a bad error of judgment
at one point In Its dealings with China
and Japan. We are freer to say this
because, while we do not sanction par
tisan criticism of any administration's
foreign policy, the fault in this instance
appears to be common to both parties
and a blemish of long standlnc upon
American diplomacy; the blemish often
of Inexcusable timidity. The facts In
the case, so far as known, are these:
When- Japan declared war on China,
there were 1,600 Japanese residents in
Shanghai. Our government," through
Minister Deuby, offered these, as well
as other Japanese, Its protection and
friendly services In getting them out of
China, to a place of safety. The Chi
nese officials understood this; but
claimed that two of these 1,500 were
spies. Consul-General Jernlgan com
municated, through the Pekln legation,
with Secretary ;Gresham and, after
some delay, received orders to surren
der the pair. They were seized by the
Chinese, subjected to Indescribable tor
ture and afterward beheaded. The
whole point to this episode lies In the
fact that while It Is reasonable to sup
pose that the two victims were spies,
as was alleged, the United States con
sul-general was not permitted by the
secretary of state at Washington to
hold a fair trial of the accused men,
but 'had to take merely the accusation
6f the semi-barbarous Chinese as proof.
In precisely the same manner, China
could, had It been so disposed, have
demanded every one of the 1,500 civil
lzed Japanese who had sought the pro
tectlon of our flag; and could have shot
them, mutilated them, burned them or
Inflicted any other outrageous treat
ment upon them, ' upon' Its single,' un
substantiated assertion that they were
spies. In such a case the blood of
these people would have been on our
hands, and we should, as a nation,
Justly have deserved the opprobrious
name of cravens and assistant assas
sins. As It is, we have only the blood
of two men to answer for; and can, as n
nation, presumably snap our fingers at
criticism, just- as Secretary Greshnm
does, when confronted with these facts.
In this connection It is Interesting to
fullotv'some remarks of Julian Ralph
the famous correspondent, who5 has
Just returned from Shanghai:
I am sorry to have seemed to be per
sonal In what t reported from China, but
I Insist that the time has come that our
government learn something outside the
boundaries of this country. If w are go

there was such a place as Korea until

for when we have the boundless west to
populate and till?" This sort of thing is
what the Europeans tell about In Asia, and
more humiliating. It is a story of how,

more humllltlng. It Is a story of how

Dr. Rothrocki secretary of the Penn
sylvania Forestry association, esti
mates that the Inhabitants of this state
suffer an annual, average, direct loss of
J30.000.000 because of their lack of suit
able forest supervision. When It Is re
membered that Pennsylvania has. In
round numbers, only 1,000,000 voters,
this Is equivalent to saying that every
male citizen robs himself of $30 yearly
by falling to Insist upon the preserva
tion of our wooded areas. This Is an
uncommon way of putting It; but we
are not prepared to dispute its truth.
The next legislature will have before
It, for consideration, many measures of
undoubted Importance. Kut what one
of these, apart from the Forestry asso
ciation's bill to lay out and protect
three state parks, will promise a direct
saving, to each voter, of $30? It Is well
to keep this thought In the minds of the
men who will prepare the next legisla
tive calendar. They do not see the Im
portance of forest protection mainly be
cause they have not given thought to
the subject. Let friends of the reform
see, this time, that they give thought
It is now or never with' the forestry
movement In- Pennsylvania. Some
other year will be too late.
The decision of the Traction company
to Improve Its car service on the Laurel
Hill Park line, which was carried Into
ffect Saturday by the adoption of a
new schedule, Is a thankfully-received
symptom of progress and good Judg
ment. It Is now In order to remind the
company that there are other lines
whereon additional cars, running
promptly on schedule time, would not
prove a bad Investment.
Only by assuming that poverty lm-
plos Indifference, to justice can the pre
diction be sustained that the Income
tax Is here to stay. . We do not believe
that the bulk of poor people are social
ists at heart.

WHY. THEY DIDN'T VOTE.
From tho Courier-Journal.
Kx-Lleutennnt Governor Marquis tells
a very amusing Incident of the lute cam
paign, w.hleh occurred ut his Ohio home:
1 never fully realized the Influence of
example until lust election day," said Mr.
Marquis. "I have been a working mem

mittee for thirty-four years, and, fol
lowing my usuul ciiHtom, wus out on elec
tion day to get our people to the poll-).
Just outside of town 1 came across four
or five Democrats husking In a corn
" 'Aren't you boys coming to the polls?'
"'Have you heard whether or not Mr.
Cleveland hus voted today?' was the

' 'Well, neither are We. We are Just as

"I have no doubt but that a great many
Democrats felt just that way about the

away from the polls on Nov. 6.'

A BIT OF HISTORY.
Colonel Alex McClure. 1
It Is known to but few of this flay how
the peculiar provision of .the uu) of 1S74'
directing the trial of Judicial contests wag
determined upon. Like many other gen
eral laws It was Influenced, without the
knowledge of the legislature, to meet a
particular case that was expected 'to arise
In the Judicial district then composed at
Franklin and Fulton. The .candidates
were Judge Howe, Republican, and ex
judge Ktmmel, Democrat, who had been
the first Judge of the district under the
elective system. It was confidently ex
peceted that Judge Rowe would curry a
majority In Franklin county, and 1t was
apprehended that Klftimel would receive a
larger majority in FUlton. Had the elec
tion resulted as wat anticipated, there
would have been a contest on the ground
that Franklin county, having the requis
ite population under the constitution to
give her a Judge, could not be controlled
in the choice of a judge by a small county
that hud been attached to It, and tha
question was carefully considered as to
how a friendly tribunal might be chosen
under a general law to determine that
constitutional question. By adopting tha
plun of taking the three Judges nearest to
the county seat It was believed that a
tribunal not unfriendly would be obtained;
but the glorious uncertainty of American
politics was demonstrated In this cape by
the two candidates being a tie In Frank
lin, and Fulton giving a plurality to Judge
Howe. Apart from the particular case It
was Intended to meet, the method is In ev
ery way a commendable one and Is as
likely to result In the honest determina
tion of such disputes as any other tribunal
that could be formed.
DON'T THINK SO.
From the Philadelphia Times.
The tendency of the times in both par
ties unmistakably points to the Increased
taxation of weulth. It is Inspired by the
spirit of the agrarian that alms to confis
cate wealth under cover of luw, and It Is
doubtful whether any of the greut par
ties In 1890 wll Incorporate In Its platform
a repeal of the Income tax. It Is popu
lar In the south for the reason that the
southern people don't pay It; It Is popu
lar In the west for the same reason, ami It
Is popular with the masses even In the
eastern states, where wealth Is most con
centrated, ueuii'.se an overwhelming ma
jority of the people ure exempt from It.
it is simply a. question of u large ma
jority putting some $20,000,000 or $30,000,000
of taxation upon a helpless minority thnt

ness, and it Is more than probable that by
