Safety fenders on trolley cars would rrobably earn back their cost by ecal 1ns down damage verdicts.

The Wyoming conference will no doubt administer to Kev. J. C. Hogan, of Forest City, adequate reproof for his attack, made last Friday night, upon his immediate superior. Presid ing Elder W. L. Thorpe. The attack, as currently reported In the secular press, was of a character not . to- be lightly brushed, aside." The assailant's rfmarlt that the "fight for prohibition cannot be stopped" should not blind the conference to its duty to stop, or at least check, the tongue of a ministerial member who is in the habit of utter ing about those who differ from him in opinion language which, if used by one layman to another, would probably, In nine cases out of ten, be answered with a blow. It Is charitable io suppose that Rev. Mr. Hogan is in part the victim of a disposition which renders him at times morally unaccountable for his words. The language which he habitually uses concerning those who do not oc cupy his point of mental view, while it Is often exasperating by reason of the character of the office of him who ut ters it, Is by this time, fortunately, so well understood in this community as to be effectually discounted. We do not be lieve that any man, least of all a fel low clergyman o favorably known as is Rev. Mr. Thorpe, will be thought less of by reason of anything which may.be said about him by the reverend gentleman from Forest City. But in Justice to itself and to the character of ithe ministerial office, the conference now in session in Carbon dale should. It seems to us, stamp with the seal of its disapproval the language employed by Rev. Mr. Hogan, on Friday evening; require him to make publio apology or, upon his refusal to do that, divest him of the' functions of a minister of that gospel which teaches that among the virtues temper ance of tongue Is not less Important than temperance of other kinds. President Cleveland may be "tired of the presidency," as he alleges, but he Is probably not one-tenth as weary as he has made the American people. Too Many Bosses. A Pittsburg paper quotes one 'Will iam Spence, "whom ft calls past right worthy graftd master of the American Protective association, as having re cently eald, with reference to the anti religious garb bill pending at HarrlR burg: "We are working -hard for its passage, and Intend simply to give or ders that it shall pftas." William 6pence cannot, we suppose, be prevented from "giving orders" to- the legislature on any question, before It for considera tion;' but the legislature' will do .itself honor If It shall return those orders with tho , message, "declined with thanks." The "giving" of "orders" at Harrls burg has, in recent years, become quite a mania. The American Protective as sociation Is probably the worst of the secret organizations which presume to "give orders" to our legislators, but It Is by no. means alone In this habit of order-giving. Lobbyists, paid agents, promoter ahtl 'legislative committees"1 of various 'kinds have, grown to be familiar features of life in HarriBburg. Perhaps Mr. Spenoe thinks that he has as good a right to give orders to the law-makers as has any other of these numerous types of "third house", mem bership. We dare say, too, that he has. The one certain part of the, subject, however, Is that every mother's son of these oath-bound, secret society order- givers ought to, be notified to. betake themselves from the vicinity . of the capital during legislative sessions, and to remain away under penalty of seiz ure, disfranchisement and imprison ment at hard labor. There are entirely too many self -appointed "bosses" en gaged these days in the task of trying to legislate for the American people. Senator Quay will please observe that one David Martin has just been ap pointed to the Kansas supreme bench. - Growth of Silver Sentiment. Few Republicans in publio life are better informed or more conservative than Representative Hepburn, of Iowa. Mr. Hepburn has Just completed a tour of the western states, and lie declares that there is a general and growing public opinion throughout the west in favor of the free coinage of silver. "The educational process In behalf of free silver is," he declares, "having marked Influence upon the people. I believe that this year In every Demo cratic state convention held west of tho Allegheny inoiintalnsa position In favor of the Immediate, unlimited coinage of free silver will be taken, unless (lie In ternational conference is called and people are Induced to biMlove that there Is reasonable prospect of nn early In ternational agreement as to ratio and coinage. The Republicans of the west have always been In favor of the free unlimited coinage of silver as ti result of International agreement. I thought I noticed a stronger feeling among them on my last trip In favor of such use of silver Indepundtnlly of such agreement, but if the invitation Is made by Germany and accepted by the commercial nations of the world I have no doubt that Republicans will be con tent to stand on the declarations of the platform and wait for such Joint ac tion. I believe, however, that should the Republicans of the west become satlslled that there Is! to be no such con ference and that gold monometallism is to be the policy of European na tions and of our own men of wealth, they will prefer silver monometallism to gold. "As for myself I favor the Republi can position on the unlimited coinage of sliver, but I feel perfectly certain that an International agreement as to ratio and the opening of all mints to silver will soon be reached. It may be to the interest of a few very rich men to limit the money of ultimate redemp tion to gold, but It is the interest of the great mass of people to have the great est possible amount of money of ulti mate redemption. The latter ari rapid ly finding out that this Is their inter ests, and, as they are a thousand to one of the others, ken they do learn this they will prevail in any contest. This interest is the same on the part of the Englishman, the German and the Frenchman as the American, so that It Is only necessary that the same meas ures of education should be had in other countries a3 here to bring about the same results. With an interna tional agreement there can be no ques tion about good results of the free coin age of silver. With an agreement the market Is unlimited and the value is fixed without the possibility of fluctu ation so long as the ratio is main tained by law. The unlimited coinage by the United States Independently of agreement Is but an experiment. No man knows that it will succeed. His belief-is but a speculation, so that 1 think it Is better not to be precipitate, but to wait for a certainty that with proper education must come." This is an eminently conservative view. It probably puts too much re liance upon the likelihood of an early monetary agreement among the nations. But It Indicates at least that those persons who think the silver question will have lit tle bearing upon the politics of the near future are unfamiliar with the real condition of public sentiment west of New York city. , We notice the omission, recently, of so-called Scranton correspondence, from the Milton "People." Has the Foresjt City abuse mill been shut down permanently? A Declaration of Dependence. Every argument, made by Charles Emory Smith at Harrlsburg Wednes day night against silver monometall ism becomes, by Inversion, an equally powerful argument against the anti thetical extreme of gold monometall ism, which Mr. Smith champions, in effect If not In name. Mr. Smith hnd a good deal to say about "honest" and "dishonest" money. But somehow he forgot to reply to Mr. Clark's pertinent questions: "Is It honest money that grows more valuable day by day? Is It honest money that records a debt of ten bushels of wheat and compels payment of twenty bushels? Is It honest money that makes our national debt far larger, In terms of wheat or cotton, than It was originally, and that after more than half the debt, In terms of dollars, has been) paid?" It would have been well had Mr. Smith also said something touching Mr. Clark's remark that "we have no CO-cent silver dollars, but' we have a gold dollar worth about $1.35." He talked too much about sil ver . monometallism, which scarcely anybody of consequence seriously be lieves in. He omitted to talk sufficient ly about honest bimetallism, to which the Reublloan party Is frankly pledged. I "Money j" Bays Mr. ,'A . J. . Balfour, "snnuld' be a fair :and bermaheht obli gation over long1 periods of time." When gold and silver were UBed as money upon a parity, forming together one standard of values, they formed mutually a "fair record of obligation," because the market value of both metals remained relatively stable. But when silver was struck down, gold flew up like a rocket, and debts contracted upon a bimetalllo basis by that same appreciation of gold very soon grew per ceptibly larger. Mr. Smith does not dispute this. He professes to recognize the great necessity for rehabilitating silver upon an international basis. But he hesitates to take a direct Btep toward silver's rehabilitation in our own country because the gold standard countries for obvious reasons discour age It. If we can do It', is lit not time that we proceeded to work out our own destiny Independent of Great Britain and Germany? Can we not do this, if we make up our minds to try? The Initial number of Scranton's new magazine, tho American Age, Is out. Tho mission of the American Age may perhaps be best explained In tlx lead ing editorial paragraph of the current Issue: "Thtt American Age will always aspire to be truly American In the broadest and most patriotic sense of the word. And it will bo the firm standard bearer of true American prin ciples In politics, finance and religion, for the best Interests of the greatest number of our citizens." The contents of the magazine seem to be in accord with the sentiments expressed above. Among tho good things within. Its cov ers are an artlelo upon "Education and Its Inlltience," by Cardinal Gibbons; "The Esoteric or Secret Doctrines of Christ," on extract, with comments, from Dr. Daniel H. Strong's new work, entitled "Christianity Restored," which Is now In press; poems by Hon. John E. Barrett and AVI11 Irving Finch; special articles by other well-known writers; editorial and personal comments, re views, etc. The American Ago appears to have entered a distinctive field hitherto uncultivated, and if continued upon the broad principles upon which It has been founded, seems destined to become an important factor In the work of 'elevating humanity. Before the Ktato of Pennsylvania de cides to cripple Its philanthropic insti tution by means of meager appropria tions aud deprive Its National guard of summer brigade encampments, It ought to be sure that It Is In such financial straits as to warrant these unusual economies.' How much money has It lying in Its restrve fund or apportioned out among favored banks? Why not first put some of this dormant capital out into channels of public usefulness, bofore yielding to financial fright? Our esteemed contemporaries. Edi tors Smith and Clark, will doubtless learn with pride that In the opinion of many able judges they both "wiped up the floor" with each other, so to speak. THAT SILVER DEBATE. Thero Is a deal of quiet exultation !n the Manufacturer's edltoriul reference to what it calls Hon. Charles Eniory Smith's "eloquent plea for silver." "Some Ameii run bimetiillists," it says, "will probably liu.'lino to becomo Indlgnunt at llntllng a brilliant public man adverse to them, and who has Indeed criticized them with great severity, now standing behind their own breast-works and still alluding to them (is enemies of the public peace. When men who have been until lately widely at odds are at last enlisted in a common cause, It would seem to bo time to stop shaking flst3 at one another. But, while the bimetal lisms may have a Tight to feel angry that one recently antagonistic to them persists In representing them, now that ho Is upon their side, as dangerous men, they cannot fail to admire the strategy with which this shift of position has been conducted, nor should they neglect to rejoice that the good cause has acquired so valuuble a champion. There Is not a gold standard man In the United States who will read Mr. Smith's splendid rhetoric without gnashing of teeth. All men of that class know that heavy loss has come to tholr cauHe when so gifted a writer and orator commits himself outright to the principle of bimetallism. And, while discourage ment must befall among the gold mono metalllsts, what can there be but high encouragement among blmetalllsts upon perception that public opinion favorable to the restoration of silver has become at last so fotccful as to produce this result? Three years ago there was little else than obloquy for the man who dared even to suggest that the gold standard was not the best and only honest method of measuring values. Themcndous has been the growth of popular sentiment which Irresistibly forces able antagonists of the silver move ment to colncldo with It; and immense tho gain which turns resistance Into help fulness!" NEED AN EXTRA SESSION. From the Washington Post. Just what Is to be done with the income tax law has developed Into a serious and perplexing question. Tho supreme court has already cut off fully half of the reve nue that was expected from the tax, and It has left under suspicion and open to chal lenge all the rest of It. One might say, Indeed, without tho least exaggeration, that the action of the court has actually Invited resistance and antagonism; that It has suggested proceedings on the part of the taxpayers that will Indefinitely delay, if it does not wholly prevent, the pay ment of more than the most Insignificant fraction of the sum upon which the treas ury otllclals have been counting. The tW, 000,0(10 of public revenue estimated as a re sult of the operation.of the law will, there fore, bo reduced to practically nothing, while the expense of the machinery of government will continue, and to this must be added the enormous cost of tho litiga tion that will soon spring up In every city, town, vlllnge, hamlet and country neigh borhood within the Union. Instead of be ing a source of revenue, tho law wHl be nn agent of depletion. It will yield nothing but a deficit. The budget will be Bhort by the 130,000,000 estimated, plus the other millions that will bo required to maintain the ofllclal establishment and to meet the expense of litigation. Really, It seems to us that If ever thero was a situation Justi fying an extra session of congress, we have It confronting us at this moment. The Truth Concisely Exprossod. From tho Scranton Truth. There Is no excuse whatever for any fur ther delay on the part of the Scranton Traction company in equipping Its cars with fenders, under protence of "determin ing the best." Tho expert commission that made the tests for Baltimore rec ommended twelvo out of seventy as effec tual; and four of the twelvo have proven so In that city. If the Traction company docs not Immediately put safety fenders on every car of Its own accord, Scranton councils must sen to It at once that they shall be compelled to do so. Also Object to Trolley Murder. From a Press Dispatch. N Brooklyn, April 11. All South Brooklyn wont to a mass meeting at Prospect hall last night to dovlse means for stopping trolley murders. The resolutions adopted charged the corporation with un!ng ques tionable business methods with public of ficials, urged Mayor Schleren to forthwith take effective steps to stop tho slaughter; declared that the speed of the trolleys should be limited to six miles an hour In the c'.ty proper, and that no car be allowed to leave the depot after June 1 next with out a first-class fender.
