IMIRID AT THI !OSTO??iOB AT SCRANTO.f. A.. AS E1CCND-OXA83 MAIL MATTER. SCUANTON, DECEMBER 3. 1896. Since the street cars have begun to run on Washington avenue there has been an annoying Increase In the dust nuisance. Every car raises a cloud of dust and sends it whirling Into pedes trians' faces. What la the city going to do about it? Hypnotism and Crime. The hypnotic tY-ata of the Sages In this city during the present week are Hiifllctently convincing to call up the old question whether there may not be elements of danger to society in the development of hypnotic Iniluences; in other words, whether, in the hunds of the unscrupulous, power such as the Sages manifestly possess may not be used for public or private Injury. The relationship of hypnotism to crime has' elicited a voluminous discussion, but one of the best presentments ' of the subject that we have seen was recent ly published in the bulletin of the psychological section of the Medico Legal society and was from the pen of Dr. Sudduth, of Chicago. This authority first considers In de tail the facts In several noted criminal cases In which the hypnotic defense has been Introduced as, for example, Harry Mayward's murder of Katherlne fling at Minneapolis, the seduction of Mabel Brlggs and Alma Leonard at Kau Claire, Wis., the Kalb case at Co lunibus, O., and the murder at Conway, Kansas, of Thomas I'atton by Tom MacUonald and shows very conclu slvely by expert testimony that the claim of hypnotic Incitement to crime. whenever mad', was merely a clever bit of legal dust-throwing, on a par with what used to be called the "In sanity dodge," but further up to date, Coining from this phase of the subject to a consideration of the nature of hypnosis. Dr. Sudduth agrees with Pro fessor Sage that it Is simply a modified form of natural sleep, with the quail Heat Ion that notwithstanding the hyp notized person's apparent loss of con sciousness he Is really perfectly con scious of his condition. "He Is pos sessed," says Dr. Sudduth, "of what is termed a double or dual consciousness. He knows full well that he Is doing the bidding of another, but so long ns the suggested acts do not shock his sense of propriety, and come within the bounds of physical possibility, he will attempt their performance, because he realizes that he Is playing a part In an experiment, and is anxious to add his mite to the sum of knowledge upon the subject. Nevertheless," and this point Is one that all practitioners of hypnot ism are careful to emphasize, "he is as free a moral agent to follow the dic tates of conscience as he Is In the wak ing state. He obeys only In so far as the suggested acts do not antagonize the moral standard he has set up for himself; any suggestions that serious ly ulTroiit his moral nature. If persisted In, will cause him to awaken. Crimi nal or Imtporal suggestions made to a moral subject meet the auto-suggestion arising from his own conscience and confusion Is created in his mind. His Indecision Is only too apparent in the helpless expression on his face, and his incapacity to originate any line of pro cedure In the premises, and he simply remains passive, that Is, does nothing." In Dr. Sudduth's opinion, the ques tion of successful hypnotic criminal suggestion turns, therefore, on a point of morals, even as It does in the wak ing state, -and with a lessened possi bility of success,' for the reason that In the hypnotic state a subject seems to lose to a greater or less degree his sense of material relationship, and cu pidity and passion are less easily ap pealed to. The mind Is passive, not active', and the operator must supply the motive and the physical Incentive as well. Even when the suggested act does not cross the subject's ideas of right It many times fails of consumma tion by reason of this same law of In ertia. In brief, the personality of the individual "Is not materially altered In hypnosis; it is only modified; partially dominated, If you please, by the will of another for the time being, but only so far as his own ideas are not serious ly crossed. Any strong counter-current of Ideas will break the relationship and arouse the Individual from the hypnotic state. Faith In the ability and the good intentions of the operator is an essential element In hypnotism, and the sensational stories that go tlie rounds of cheap literature regarding theft, arson and murder committed in the hypnotic state, by reason of that state, are the creations of diseased or Ignorant minds. Unless a person Is any or all these at heart, he can no more be made so in the hypnotic than he can In the waking state." No plea of hypnotic suggestion has ever been Judicially passed upon in an American court. Perhaps the nearest approach to an opinion on the subject was reached in the Hayward trial at Minneapolis, when Judge Smith, in rul ing against the Introduction of testi mony calculated to prove that Hay ward had his accomplice Blixt under hypnotic control, said: "I do not think that hypnotism should ever stand as an excuse for the commission of crime." For this opinion Judge Smith will And abundant indorsement. Possibly Piatt is going to Canton to ay he was only joking last June. The American Economist has com pleted a census of 13S8 Industrial estab lishments In forty-six States and Terri tories relative to the condition of labor throughout the United States In .the months of July, 1892, and July, 1896. It shows that in these establishments there was almost 30 per cent, less work for American labor, after the Gorman Wilson tariff had been two years In operation, than there had been after the McKinley bill had been the law for two years. The decrease in the earnings of wages wan 26 per cent, under the Democratic free trade tariff, the total loss of wages to labor being at the rate of (19,214,448 a year, under free trade, In the 1,388 establishments, where there were 52.448 idle hands this year who had been busily employed un der Mi-Kin ley protection. This Inquiry justifies the country's present eagerness for genuine tariff reform. . j Senator Sherman Is sal t to be angry at the thought of being asked to enter the cabinet. There are plenty of good Republicans, however, who don't share his sensitiveness. Coming to Their Senses. The recent adoption In Mississippi and South Carolina of state constitu tional amendments so restricting the suffrage as virtually to disfranchise a large percentage of the male citizen ship of those states has had one unex pected effect. It wus done largely with a view to perpetuating Democratic su premacy since the disfranchised ele' ment was mainly Republican, and it was doubtless supposed that the entire South, being hitherto solidly Demo cratic, would ns a matter of course cheerfully acquiesce, l'ut lo and be hold! the decent states of the South are beginning to perceive that such an arrangement Is uiifnir all around and are already protesting against it. For example, the Galveston News, one of the most influentlhl journals in the Southwest, after pointing out to what extent the educational and poll tax voting tests In Mississippi and South Carolina have reduced their vote, contends that the fourteenth amend ment to the constitution of the United States makes It mandatory upon con gress that Mississippi's representation in the national house of representatives shall be reduced from seven to two. and South Carolina's from seven to three. Likewise Mississippi's repre sentallon in the electoral college should be reduced from nine to four and South Carolina's from nine to rive. The News says congress should take this action under the constitution In "justice to the states of Texas, Missouri, North Caro Una and the other commonwealths whole there is no restriction of suf frage." To show how unfair the pres ent arrangement is, a few fig ures are interesting. In 1S9I tin- average vote for congressmen In South Carolina per district was 9.092; in Mississippi it was 6,6.13. The same year in Indiana it wns 4.1,000; In Texas 31.000; In Illinois 38,000;' in Ken tucky 32.DO0; In North Carolina, 30,500; in Connecticut SS.r.00; and In Pennsyl vania, about 32.0W). The congressional returns from the presidential election are not all in yet. Jut it is safe from what are in to conclude that the dls proportion in 1896 was fully as great as in 1S94. The mere statement of the case shows on its face that something is radically wrong In a system which permits less than 6,000 voters In Miss isslppi to exert the same power In choosing a president or In making fed eral laws that Is exerted by 30,000 to 40,000 voters In the more thrifty and intelligent Northern stutes. Heretofore, whenever a Northern journal or speaker has called attention to this gross and glaring disparity he has been howled down by the cry that such protest is the prompting of par tisan and pactional prejudice. It Is therefore prophetic of better things that the first objection entered this year to this munifcHt inequality of repre sentation (mould come from a Demo cratic source in the South Itself. We undoubtedly owe much to Southern Populism for thus breaking down the old barriers and letting in the light. Hut whatever the cause of the South' 3 present renascence of hanlty and fair ness, the next administration should not fail to look for a remedy for the existing disproportion. I'erhaps no other cure would be more efficacious than to base the ratio for congression al representation not on population but on the number of votes cast at the last prior general election. The estate of Henry E. Abbey, who In his day spent millions, amounts to just $200. Truly this Is a world of change. As to Foot Ball. The Rochester Democrat and Chron icle has compiled a partial list of young men killed or seriously injured during the foot-ball campaign of 1896. The list is half a column long, too long to re print, but its totals are 4 killed and 25 severely wounded. From Its list the Rochester paper has excluded all cases of injury such as those received dur ing fights and riots growing out of foot ball matches for which the game itself is not directly responsible; also all such comparatively unimportant Injuries ns sprained ankles, wrenched knees, brok en noses, blackened eyes, torn lips, nos trils and eyelids; also all the Injuries of which it knows nothing except that the players were so disabled that they were unable to continue the game, and, in many cases, had to be carried uncon rcions or otherwise helpless from the field. It further explains with some care that the list Is by no means com plete; that it Is made up simply of those cases which came readily into recollection, and its conclusion is that football doesn't pay. Before discussing that opinion It may be worth while to note that there is a good deal of conscious or unconscious hypocrisy In the public sentiment which bans the prize ring, with Its far smaller risk, and elevates the equally bloody gridiron Into a social function. It is true that the present associations of the prize ring are vile; but it is also true that If the same classes which support football would take It in hand, strip It of Its brutalizing features, do away with finish "mills" and encourage scientific sparring In the same manner that they encourage special dexterity and pluck on the gridiron, the result would be a distinct gain to athletics. Give football the age that prize-fighting has and we dare say it would become quite as disreputable, unless saved by the social safeguards at present sur rounding It. Now for the main question. Does football pay? We cannot see a nega tive side to the question. That the game may be pushed at times to an extreme does not signify that It is therefore wholly unprofitable. Thpre is no blessing In life which cannot be turned Into a curse by excesses. The argument for football is precisely the argument for the properly conducted prise ring and all other manly sports; it develops the human body, teaches the necessary philosophy of give and take, engenders pluck, cultivates self reliance and broadens the whole basis of existence among its devotees. No nation ever amounted to a rap which discouraged athletics. No nation will ever achieve a noble destiny without active amateur sports. There is, more over, a moral side to the question which upon the whole far outweighs the Inevitable penalties of athletic com petition. Moials to a large extent are associated with physical health. The well-developed man, physically speak ing, is almost always the good-natured, generous, peaceful citizen. On the cotrary, the man with the disabled lung or the rebellious liver is nine times in ten the felluw who plots mischief and raises Cain generally. Football, among other sports, juakes for good and virile citizenship, reduces the percentage of crime and raises the standards of the race. Our only regret is that those who encourage it do not also deal in equal fairness with several other ath letic pastimes even belter lilted than football to achieve these desirable re sults. The excitable Wllkes-Harre Record joins with several excitable local com men ta tors on the Mrs. Booth case In premature condemnation of Superlnten dent Howell. It flies off on a tangent after hearing only one side of the case, Mr. Howell's request for a suspension of Judgment until he can be heard In his own defense Is eminently fair; and from what we know of the facts we in cline to the opinion that his defense will be likely to acquit him of wrong motives and place the entire matter in a more favorable light. Verdicts should always be withheld until all the evidence Is in. The Philadelphia Press "definitely announces" that Senator Quay's prefer enee among the candidates to succeei Senator Cameron Is Hon. Boles Pen rose, of Philadelphia. This may be; indeed, so far us newspaper specula tion roes this Is the surface indication. But Senator Quay himself will need to give public testimony In the matt before doubt can be wholly removed. When Wevler started to crush the Cuban rebellion ho promised to do It within 60 days. He has been at work for over a vear and still the rebellion is uncrushed. As a crusher ho seems to be verv far from a success. But that Is no reason why the United States should let him have his own way in definitely. The time for this govern ment to act is drawing nigh. There Is consolation for the anxious. Mr. Cleveland, it Is said, has decided not to put the 6i,000 fourth-class post- oiiices in the country under civil ser vice rules. In other words, whin Mc Kinley gets in there will be a pie counter. The statement that ex-President An drew D. White has already been prof fered the next secretaryship of state is very improbable. Election day Is only one month old, and secretaries of state are rarely chosen in a hurry. Now that Senator Quay has said de liberately he would not accept a cabl net position, look out for Mark Hanna. The cabinet needs at least one "nod politician, William D. Bynum, the chairman of the Sound Money Democracy, already wants to form a new party. William should pause awhile and get rested. Jfosf a Word or Tu?o of Castial Mention Down in Mlnooka there lives a harilv citizen, who has seen twice thirty winter suns return, unci from appearances bids fair to see a good muny more winter suns come and go. When the Uraveyard lnsur unco company was at its zenith in this valley, a lurse number insured this man and felt conlidcnt thut his days on thU spnere were numbered. True, he wus not very rugged then, but he had been possessed of an Iron constitution; and his insurers culculuted thut when once a vig orous und ublu-bodied man beidns to de cline, he goes down the toboKgun swiftly and surely, not like one who drags out a lingering existence. But the mouths went by and there wus no slun of hit aa- proaching dissolution. The collectors came around frequently and took up the premi ums, nml so much hud been puld in on the man thut the polity holders got alarmed and feared thut it wouldn't be long befoic they would huve more paid in than they would get out when he died. Demijohns of the worst grog that could be "rectilled" were presented to him, and he received them with thanks and duly con sum en tho contents, but his heulth did not uppear to suffer. Eventually the policy holders sot together, mid this Is no joke, and they subscribed a purse to send him to Ireland on k visit to the lund of his birth. They sent him across the ocean in the middle of winter, thinking thut the strain on him would eventuate In his death. Kor several months the yostolllce was visited every night In the experatlon that a letter would arrive announcing his death, but none came. At last.one biilmy day the fol lowing spring, he walked into Mlnooka rejuvenated In health and looking for nil the world as thouvh he had found Fonee de Leon's fabled fountain of youth. He celebrated his return not long after by getting married, and It wouldn't be wise to take a policy en him today. Su.flee it to add that he nacrlbe his relnvigoratioti to "rot cut'' whiskey and a steerage voy age to Ireland. For those of us who are only moderate ly supplied with this world's goods there is always a fascination about guessing flt how much rich men are worth. The av erage guess Is rarely accurate, but it em. ploys the mind. The sight In yesterday's Philadelphia Inquirer or a paragrapn con cerning Abram Nesbltt, of Kingston, "the reputed owner," as It says, "of more tan gible wealth than any other man In the commonwealth," recalls a conversation once had with lending Wllkes-Barroans on this subject. It was on the occasion of the visit to Spring Brook of a party cf the officials and guests or the Spring Brook Water Supply company. Sir. Nes bltt was In the pnrty and tho talk turned to the subject of his wealth. There were various estimates nil the way from $8,ffK,- H to $17,CW0,UU0 but all agreed upon one point namely, that Mr. Neshitt li the wealthiest citizen or .ormtusiern i-cnn- sylvanla. The street light at the corner of Quincy avenue and Vine street would be a good subject for Investigation, it Is dark more than half of each night, and no resident living near It any longer expects It to be of any service. Wllkes-narrf ans tiaven't lost confidence In Seranton push notwithstanding occa sional suggestions to the contrary. The Wllkes-Barre board of trade banquets to morrow night at the Wyoming Valley House. Captain W. A. May. president of Ecranton'a boHrd of trade. Is going down in response to an rhvitatlci requesting him to respond to the toast '-low Can a Board of T'arte be Made as Successful as Bcranton's Board." That isn't exactly the title of the toast, but It Is to that ef fect. Wllkes-iiarre comes to Seranton for pointers once in awhile. A woman's edition of the Blnghumton Republican Is In course of evolution. The exact date of Its issue Is not fixed, but it will be nislde of a few weeks. Mrs. Mo. Uermott, the general manageress, is com ing to Seranton today to consult with Mrs. C. B. I'enmah, Miss Susan Dickin son and others of the editor and work ers of the Seranton Women's Paper, which was gotten out from The Tribune oltloe last spring. In addition to seeking advice from these ladles, who have experienced the Joys, etc.. of getting out a paper. Mrs. McDermott will discuss with them the feasibility of adding a Seranton page to the paper. As the proceeds are to go to the Commercial Travelers Home, In which Sorunton evinces a deep Interest, there is every likelihood that its Seranton page will be u reality. Attorney M. J. Welsh, although one of the youngest members of the bar, both In point of years und practice, is ulready attracting the attention of his legal prct.T ren. During the lirst three duys of crim Inul court he has been counsel in sevei cases and won every one of them, with the exception of one In which the defend ant was convicted with four others. Ills man, however, was singled out from the rest and recommended to the mercy of the court. Mr. Welsh modestly says it is good luck, but those who have been wutching his Ingenious handling of wit nesses and listening to his convincing stylo of argument before Juries do not agree with him in his explanation of his success. On every hand the whist revival Is in emphatic evidence- save In Wllkes-Harre. Rei.ated efforts have been made by Serunton experts to enlist the good peo ple of that quiescent burg in a whist tour- natnent, but without avail. Nobody In ilkes-Harr cares for whist. One the- ory Is that it is too Intellectual. At oil events, the favorite Luzerne game U re ported to be cuslno. A FAMOUS HUMORIST. Percival It. Benson Is tho namo of the Uetrolt 1 ribune 8 funny man, whose Jokes are laughed at the world over. As he Is about to leave Detroit for the east, the 1 ribune or that city reproduces from Its fill's some of Benson's brightest work, us ioiiows; Senator Sherman's two volumes of somewhat petulant reminiscences lie greeted with the following: Oh, John Sherman remembers that long ago bolt, und his boom thut was done up so brown; how they Jollied him on with a pledge of support and then on his neck threw him down. In that solemn old church yard, the senate, he Bits with a heart of the granite so gray, and, when he remembers the things that he thinks no hastens a few things to say. Of paragraphed .philosophy he has given much, as witness: There would be less room at the top If more were an elevator. He often uses the framework of the staple Jokes on social foibles, but the raiment he gives them Is always of his own design. An Instance Is found In tho following: l-'lrst Plebeian What do you understand the duke's motto, "N'on palma sine pul- vere: Second Plebeian Ah, that, I take It, re fers to his grace's matrimonial ventures, It means "No hand without the dust." Realism? Well, I guess yes. You never saw anything like It. Why, the leading lauy was a real lady. "John," called his wife, "are you putting tne oauy to sleep." The pugilist laughed bitterly In the darkness. "I've got him against the ropes," he an. swered, for there was yet hope. "You're a wicked, lazy tramp," shout ey the sharp featured woman. "I decline to be drawn Into any contro versy," replied the tourist haughtily, "but you will take notice that I do not claim to be a June bride." First Chicago woman And you had to get rid of FMo? Second Chicago woman Yes, he got cross and wouldn't let any strange hus bands come Into the house. "And did you lynch the miscreant?" "No," answered tho leader of the In furiated mob. "Ho took refuge In un apartment house and the janitor wouldn't let us In. He was afraid we would track mud on the floor." Old King Coal was a merry old soul. Ana a merry old soui sure enougn; Were It not for the slate and the shale in him He'd have been what Is called hot stuff. "Shrill T snv mi rovolr and not good bye?" he whispered soulfully. Her long lashes swept ner aamasa cheek. "I hnrdlv know." she faltered. "Your French is pretty rank, but then" REVERSED. My love was christened Isabel; Vpon her hair, her eyes and shrined j n maurigais ner oonneis. Her fair young face was held within My heart's most sacred cella; Her name was not half sweet enough; I called her Donna Bella. Now we are married, she who erst Was meek as Saint Sarona, Has poisoned all my love In life; I called her Bella-Donna. .Margaret Holmes Bates. IINNER SETS Over 150 Patterns to Select From.
