INIERKO it THK POSTOrViCS AT HrRASTOH. PA.. AS SECOND-CLASS WAIL UATTIR SCRANTON. DECEMLSEK 1, 1S90. We conct'lve It to be due to the public that a complete report nhould be print ed of last evening's proceedings of the board of control; and this is done on another page. We shall be glad to Klve equal publicity to any statement which Superintendent Howell mny make. We cunnot believe that he was actuated by any either than worthy motives in his course with reference to Mrs. liooth; If he erred In anything It must have been In sivinff too much confidence to undeserving testimony, Ignored Business Principles. An Interesting light Is thrown by President Proctor of the Civil Service commission upon the cfllciency of Hon John Wanamaker as postmaster-general. The executive order putting rail way mail clerks under civil service rules was to have become operative on April 1, lSK'.i, but had for clerical reasons to be postponed one month . Says X'rofes sor Proctor: "Postmaster - General Wunamnker took advantage of this Interval and made 1,1100 changes In the ruilway mail service for the benefit of politicians, which I think was n great mistake, and the records of the service leave no doubt on that question. The reports from the railway mail service show that dniinp; the year- IShU before these l.l'OO changes took place the ratio of errors by rallwny mail clerks was one to Wr.4 pieces of mail handled. In IS'JO, tlie year following, the ratio increased to one error for 2.S24 pieces of mail handled. Since then under the merit system anil promotion for efficiency the ratio has decreased until it Is now only one mistake for 10,000 pieces of mail matter." Mr. Wnnnn.aker's candidacy for sen ator is being exploited by business men on the theory that he would rep resent and so far as he could employ business principles in official position. The foregoing record certainly does not bear this theory out. . .. . . .... . i The trouble with Ilev. Dr. Parkhurst Is that he has the troublesome habit of every now and then speaking the bald truth. That is very annoying to nil concerned. The American School System. An Interesting poinj of educational law has just, been decided in New York State. In West Troy the board of edu cation leased rooms in the St. Uridget's parochial school for public school pur poses and employed as teachers there in members of the St. Joseph sister hood, who wore their regular gall) while in the school room. It was claimed by the board that this arrangement saved the district considerable money, but there was objection among some of the people in the district, and the le gality of the arrangement was referred to State Superintendent Skinner for an opinion. His finding is of value as bearing upon similar cases elsewhere and ns tending to elucidate the attitude of the American people on this general ques tion. He holds that Inasmuch ns the Bisters have been regularly examined and commissioned they are duly quali fied teachers and cannot lie dismissed without sufficient cause, their religious belief not entering Into the problem. Put he holds also that the teachers in the public schools of the state might not to wear the distinctive garb of any religious denomination, order, sect or society, but dress in the usual costume worn by men and women generally; nnd that any other costume or usage Is inimical to the best educational in terests of the locality and should be discontinued. To those not satlslled with this complete severance of secu lar and religious Instruction he suggests that the private school is open. The leasing of rooms in a sectarian building surmounted by a sectarian emblem is pronounced Illegal. This may grate upon the nerves of some denominations which would like to effect a compromise tending to obvi ate the necessity of supporting two nets of schools, but it Is the plain justice of the situation. The state cannot with safety go Into partnership with any church or sect in control of public In struction. The moment It does, it opens the door to endless discrimination and favoritism. Major McKlnley was elected presi dent on a pledge to do what he could within reason to secure international bimetallism. Of course he will carry out his Instructions. Concerning Inter-State Commerce. A decision recently rendered at Cin cinnati, O., by Judge Sage, of the Fed eral circuit court. In a suit Involving the right of the Interstate commerce commission to fix a specific rate, holds with the United States Supreme court that congress has clothed that com mission with no such power. The sense of Judge Sage's ruling was that the commission may decide whether a par ticular rate is unjust or unreasonable, it mav ascertain whether rates und contracts show discrimination between either persons or places similarly cir cumstanced, and, In General, it may supervise, as an administrative and not ns a judicial body, the transpor tation within its purview but the rail roads retain full power within these limits to make their own rates. They continue "free," as the Supreme court says, "to make special contracts look ing to the Incrense of their business, to classify their traffic, to adjust and ap portion their rates so as to meet the necessities of commerce, and generally to manage their important Interests upon the same principles which are re garded as sound and; adopted in other trades and pursuits." This ruling accords with common sense. It can hardly be held by the most enthusiastic advocate of federal regulation of railroads that officers of a national - commlssloa should have power not only to prevent discrimina tion, but also to fix an arbitrary max-' itnum limit to charees for transporta tion. The latter power would be equiv alent to taking from the owners of the road the management o'f their o.vn property, und would warrant . them. should their business sustain a loss, in crediting that loss to federal interfer ence and In suin the government for damages. The' I'nlted States govern ment is an important Institution and it has ri::hts which merit respect, but iven it is not big enough nor strong enough unoy-r Its laws to force a loss on such of its citizens as are living wholly within their rights. There is much need of intelligent fed eral regulation of Interstate commerce to the end thut the little shipper shall have fair trout me lit us well us the big and that neither shall have his rights menaced by combinations on the part of carriers for the purpose of "doing" the public. The present law can with profit be amended so as to give the in terstate commerce commission ampler authority along these lines. Put it must not be clothed with urhitrury or legislative powers; it must at all times be an enforcer, not a muker of laws. In IStil Nevada cast 16,420 votes und In 1ST, 1!,6.U votes, but since then th total has steadily diminished until this year it amounted only to Sr,u" votes, or S-5 votes more than wire cast in the First Legislative district of Lackawnn na county; 577 more than were cast in the Second district und 2,01111 less than were cast in the Fourth district. And yet this beggarly state has one repre sentative anil two senators in congress, and there is no known way to remedy the inequality. In Reply to Weyler. Signer Yarona, the Cuban journalist who has undertuken to reply to General W'ejier's recent statement, does so ef fectually. Weyler-, il will be retnem bered, claimed that the Cubans enjoyed home rule, possessed a free voice In tin enactment of laws governing them selves and Were not In any particular warranted in resisting Spanish suprem acy. To this Signer Yarona answers: Permit me to state thut the Cuban rep resentation of which the general hoaaU was iiiul is no menu than a sham ami : hollow mockery for two reasons: I-'Ii-m because the number of Cuban electors is limited In saeli a manner that they rcpiv sent only about It per cent, of the popul.i Hull. Scroll, I, the law was framed in such a manner that tile resident Spaniards would always have tlie major proportion of the representation. I'p to the present time the average membership of Cutia'is In the parliament has been three, the highest number ever reached helm? s.eveii. The same state of affairs exists in the municipal and provincial novel lililclitH, s:o mill h so that it is a fact that in the Ha vana city council it lias occurred that there was net one single Cuban member; this, notwithstanding that throughout the entire island. In tin- city and country dis tricts, the majority of tin- population Is by an ovciwhclmiiiK number native . li bit n. As to the alleged freedom of speech und ot the press, the Siynor remarks: Tile Spaniard wants the world to be lieve that the mere fact of the enactment of a liberal law carries with It the full ap plication of that law. Ucncral Weyler tol I nothing about tlie couiitcrlaws which make it possible for the Spaniards to vio late the liberal laws on one pretext or an. oilier. Has It not happened that despite the existence of the law guaranteeing, ab solute freedom of the press, liberal Cuban editors have, for the writing of a simple editorial regarded by that government as obnoxious, been compelled to submit to a drum-head court-martial'.' Has it not hap. pi ned that editors have been arrested and deported by the captain general? The government interferes In all public meet, lugs. llovernment officers me present with full authority to close the meeting and all manner of pretexts are found by which the meetings are summarily closed. For example a meeting was held In a building which had been used for public purposes for years. I'p to the clay of the meeting the building was regarded ns per fectly safe ati'l sound, but during the meeting to which the Spanish governme nt objected nn engineer in the employ of the Spanish government declared the building unsound and in clanger or collapsing at any moment. The officer in charge there upon ordered the gathering to disperse. And so on through the list. At every point Weyler is refuted nnd shown to be a special ndvocate who suppresses and distorts facts, or as one is more Inclined to put it, u deliberate and wilful liar. The sympathy of the Fnl te.l States was with Cuba before, but It will be strengthened by this muslerly unmasking of the Spanish eaplaln getiernl in bis characteristic effort to falsify the records. Report has It that it cost W. K. Yan derbllt $15,000,000 lo have his daugh ter become Duchess of Marlborough. If he paid that he got cheated. For Secretary of State. According to Walter Wcllman the most difficult problem which President elect McKlnley hns to solve In the for mation of his ministry is to find a man suitable In every way for the state department portfolio. "Jt Is," says he, "a remarkable fact that there Is not in tlie lEcpuhlican party today one man who meets all the requirements of this post. According to the tradition, an Incoming president should choose for his secretary of foreign affairs the most conspicuous, or at lenst one of the most conspicuous of his rivals for the nomination. If this tradition be not followed, then the choice should alight upon a party leader of undoubted abil ity nnd prominent service. In addition to these requirements the secretary of state should be a man who has had contact with diplomacy nnd executive work, who knows international law nnd the history of nations, and who is In learning. In brain power. In tact, in force of character and In judgment in the front rank of public men. Again, he should have a certain temperamen tal fitness for the work nnd for tlie modt intimate relations with his chief. It Is not enough that he be a man of prominence and ability he must be fitted to work side by side, tlay by day, with the president himself, without danger of friction or Jealousy. Where In the ranks of the leading Republicans today w ill President -elect Mc Kinky find such a man?" Mr. Wellmnn passes' the eligible names In review Harrison. Reed, Sherman and Allison and finds some fatal fault In each. Harrison, he thinks, is too frigid and too prone to jealousy to sustain with the new presi dent thut personal as well as official Intimacy whb-h the position demands. Keed Is loo rugged, too outspoken, too Undiplomatic. Sherman Is too old and Allison too Inexperienced In matters of International concern. The result Is that Mr. Wcllraun Ih wis every possi bility over save ex-President Andrew j P. YVliite. and ex-Secretary of the Navy ti. I- Tvney. We think he ie somewhat tiffin. Hfeil til hix .iKMiOfit. of ..v-lVest- dent Harrison. The suggestion of his name in connection with the state port folio still commends Itself to us as emlMidylng the one bit a! solution of the wluilc proliltui; but If he shall persist in his declination to re-enter public life, there remains the name of Sen ator Cushmnn K. Davis, of Minnesota, a robust und virile American, who has ni.icle diplomacy a life-study und who wouKl measure up to the highest re quiri monts of the so-called "premier ship" of the cabinet. The objection to Mr. White is that he Is by temperament too excitable. It i.-, doubtful if be could endure the phyyii-al strain which the position would Impofe. Kx-Secretary Tracy woul I do; those who know him best claim that his full stature has not yet dawned upon the public mind. The engineer nf tlie government building ut Denver, William It. Morley, who lias Just been bounced for "per nicious political activity." once resided in liufYiilo and claims to have brought Crnvor Cleveland out In politics. If that was his activity, it certainly was pernicious. Hut doesn't Morley's claim Infringe on Colonel K. 11. Puller's lights? The one interesting feature of Secre tary t' Internal Affairs Latta's annu al r-.-port is Its showing that the capl tulizution of the steam railroads in Peiinsj Ivanla Is nearly one-fifth of the entire stock capitalization of the rail ways of the country. Forty-nine per cent, of the Pennsylvania stock Is dividend-paying, whereas In the Fnited States ut laig only 29 per cent. Is, Tiuly, this is a great state. Central Wcyler's military movements would make a good subject for a Gil bert and Siilliviin comic opera. Jtisf a Word op Two of Casual Mention Concerning the evidence of Sam Hudson, one or the invent proprietors of the Seranton Times, before the senatorial In. vestigators la Philadelphia yesterday a dispatch says: "When the senatorial In vestigators resumed their Inquiry into th governmental una political affairs II wa with Sam Hudson, the defeated candid He for congress in the Third district of tho Free Silver pnxty, on the witness stand. Mr. Hudson has made n complete analysis of the vole cast In a large number of the election divisions, unci, according to state ¬ ments made by him to his friends, an air ing of the ligures in detail will show rather startling results. In fact, .Mr. Hudson does lint hesitate to express the opinion riiat the votes in many of the divisions as shown by the returns were east ufler the closing of the polls, ami not by the citi zens during the rcgnli.r anil legal Hoars prescribed for holding the election, and tills tact, he says, will become apparent as the liuimry proceeds. Cgly stories of po lice activity and Interference with tlin election in the wards or the Third district have already been made public through the medium of the senatorial comnil?!..'.' but it is asserted that these will pule into comparative liisignltleaiicc before some of the tales of the operations of the blue coats, which will be related by ex-l'andi- date Hudson when he unfolds Ids exteii slve budget of information. The frier. Is of Mr. Hudson iirgiie that the develop. meat of the cdst beforp this committee will alii the contest against Congressman elect .MeAleer, ami that the evidence which will be brought out today will be likely to exert on Influence on the rc xt congress, even though It will bo such a strong Itetuih.iean and sound money io ly that it will prevail upon the members to appoint a committee to go Into the met its of the contest and make a rigid investi gation." Sam always was adept la raising a breeze. The Thanksgiving Hay servlco at the Ninth street Itaptlsi church, Cincinnati the church of which I lev. Warren 15. Par. trldgc Is the pastor was unique In re spect of the decorations. Says the Trib une of that idly: "The pulpit plat form was beautifully decorated with sheaves of grain and shocks of corn, sent by ex press Into the city for this purpose. ANo milts and vegetable, and groceries w.-e heaped up in profusion. The effect was like ii great harvest home festival. The Uoys' lirigade were present in large num bers In their uniforms. The church has live line companies. The balconies were tilled with the girls of the seven Industrial schools and Kitchen Carden. Thev were Iresseil in white, and decorated with the olors of the different stations. Their singing was an Inspiration." Hut this wis not all. "In the afternoon," the account adds, "hundreds of poor peoide wele given large baskets of provisions for a bountiful Thanksgiving. The young people went out two by two and carried these good things to the destitute fami lies." Jn his diseouta. Kev. Mr. Partridge gave n graphic statistical summary of America's resources, and contrasted the high average welfare of the American people with the misfortunes of the Inha bitant of many other lands. Altogether, it was a notalde servic e unci one that tes tified clocpi. nlly to the virility and practi cality of .Mr. Purtildge's pastorate. A novel way out of the postolllce prob lem Is suggested tiy president Proctor, of the Cnited States Civil Service commis sion, but it will hardly commend Itself to the political workers of either party. Whcnovi'r there Is a vacancy he proposes that eve ry patron of the office be asked to till out und sign a blank edition ad dressed to the' postmaste r-general, and setting forth, lirst, the d'staiue of his residence from tlie potollice; second, the iiverag- number of le tte rs be Is in then habit of receiving tier week; thirl, the number of newspapers hi!- takes, and. finally, the name of the man he prefers for postmaster. 1 his would tie equivalent to nn election, and wncld give the patrons of the "tiler the privilege, us well as the ri'Sponsibilty of selecting their postmas ter. If he turned out to bp a bad or inef tlclent man it would be the ir fault, but :l would, Mr. P'oetor thinks, remove the mail service from polities. Editor James P. Taylor, of th? Montrose I!e publican, Is one of the nrt enthusiastic tishermn In this section of the state, nnd takes great interest In the preservation of fish In our moiinain streams. l-Mitnr Taylor has on many occasion distribute,! trout fry. procured of the fish commis sioner. In the Susquehanna brooks, and he also assisted In the experiments with land- loeke'd salmon In the lakes In the vicinity of Montrose. Kclltor Taylor hns landed some of the llnest specimens of hass that swim In northeastern Pennsylvania wute-rs. and like the average disciple id Isauk Walton can always relate a good llsli story at n moment's notice. Another rite of 21 cents a ton In the price of anthracite is expected soon. The restriction of production practiccel during the past few months has permltleel sur plus stocks to dwindle anil the present eocl snap Is expected to do the rest. It Is now believed that this year's production will approximate to 4:Mio.iiuo tons as against IMrd. 44. tons Inst year. If this forecast Is verified the t-aele will begin the new yearln good shape and ought to have a recurrence of its old-time prosperity. roMTICAL POINTS.
