The short session of congress which mill onnvono tnrinV Will do all that IS seriously required of It If It shall pass the necessary appropriation bills, wind UP the deferred business of the last session and adjourn. For Reform in Politics. In view of the nearness of the next legislature lr. Is timely to recall the resolutions adopted last year by the Republicans of Pennsylvania In state convention assembled, upon motion ol fienutor Ouav: We decry the prowlng- use, of money In politics, and corporate control of lealsla .uru, munlclpul councils, political prim Bjles and elections, and favor the ena.t- mnt of leuisLi.tlon and the enforcement of laws to correct such abuses. We earn estly insist upon a form or civil serum which will prevent the enslavement of public otllcera and employes and the com pelling of those uppoinie.1 to preserve mo jjeace to conllno themselves to their du tles; which will Insure absolute freedom and fairness ii bestowiiiK state und coun v ajid municipal contracts, and .will nunlsh any form of favoritism In Kraut lug them: which will forbid the grant of exclusive frunohisea to deal In public necessities, comforts, conveyances and sanitary requirements; and will Insure the recoKnltlon of ability und fidelity In the. publlo service, keeping service to the country ever furiinofit, when accompanied liy ability ulel Illness. We demand that Dublin olllee shall be for public luuetlt and i:s term In subordlnnte positions shall be during goii.l behavior. No public em pluye or ottlccr shall be permitted to In- llueuce primaries or elections nor upon any pretense be assessed upon his salary and ail unnecessary positions and salaries Should be abolished, and expenditures an 1 taxation reduced. There should be tini f irm valuation of property for public pur poses, corporations enjoying public privi leges siiuuld pay for them, and sc-noma fdiould lie dlvoived from polities and kept absolutely free from political Inlluencc and control. Hy adopting; these resolutions In Au gust, 1X1)5. and by reallirmlnsr them this year, the Ilppulillrnn party In this state fins committed Itself to the entire pro gramme of reforms outlined In them and must keep Its faith. It does not matter at least it should not matte In this connection whether the resolu tions were drafted In a spirit of sin cerlty or hot; they have ceased to be Individual property, they are now par ty creed and doctrine, and party honor demands that they be honestly, impar tlally and .effectually enforced. Two measures have been drafted for presentation to the legislature embody ing some of the purposes of the Quuy resolutions. The one establishing the civil service of the state, of the cities, and of counties having more than 1"0,- 000 population upon a merit basis has been formully approved by the party In state convention and also meets with the favor of the Pennsylvania Civil Service Reform association. Its provi sions may be summarized as follows: Section 1 provides that the governor, with the consent of the senate, shall ap point three sulurled commissioners, who "hall constitute the civil servlco commis sion. Not more thun two of said com missioners shall be members of the same political party, and 'the term of one com mlssloner shall expire each year. Seo- tlon 2 provides thut the commission shall classify the public employes; ami excepts elective olllces and some others from the operation of the ant. It ulso directs that rules and regulations shall be prepared by the commission subject to the appro val of the governor. Secllon 4 provides for open, competitive, practical examina tions of applicants, and requires appoint ing ofllcers to select In each case from the three graded highest as the result of such examinations. It also directs that when ever practicable vacancies shull be tilled by promotions bused upon merit, and that when other iiiiulitlcutlons are equal pref erence shall be given to veterans. It fur ther provide for certain noncompetitive examinations, ami regulates examinations of laborers. Section 5 directs that public notice shall be given of rules and exam inations. Sections 7 and 8 provide for sal aries for the examiners and other em ployes of the commission, and for Its being furnished with offices, etc. Section 9 di rects that complete records shall be kept and be open to Inspection. Section 10 gives to the commission the necessary powers for supervising the enforcement of the act. Section 13 forbids solicitation on behalf of applicants. Section Pi forbids absolute removals except for some cause, which shull be p'ut In writing, and shall be neither political nor religious. Sections IT, 18 and ID prohibit political assessments and the use of corrupt inuence. Section 2U provides penalties for violations of the act. The other measure alms to prevent corrupt practices at general and pri mary elections, to limit the expenses of candidates anil political committees and to provide penalties and remedies for Its violation. It has evidently been outlined with great care, for it fills twelve printed pages and leaves no visi ble loophole. It first defines as guilty of bribery at public or primary elec tions Every person who shall, directly or In directly, by himself, or by any other per son on his behalf, give, lend or agree to give or lend, or shall offer, promise, or promise to procure or endeavor to pro cure any money or vuluable consideration to or for any voter, or to or for any per son on behalf of any voter, or to or for any other person, in order to Induce any voter to vote or refrain from voting, or shall do any such act astaforesaid un account of such voter having voted or refrained from voting at any election. Also every person who shull, directly or Indirectly, by himself or by any other person on his behalf, give or procure, or agree to give or procure, or offer, pomlse, or promise to procure or endeavor to procure any olllee, place or employment, public or private, to or for any voter, or to or for any person on behalf of any voter, or to or for any other person. In order to in-' dure such voter to vote or refrain from voting, or shull do any such act as afore said on account of any voter having voted or refiatntd from voting at nny election. Also every person who shall, directly or Indirectly. Ly himself, or by any other per son on his behalf, make any such gift, loan, offer, promise, procurement or agreement, as n foresaid, to or for any per son. In order to Induce such person to . procure or endeavor to procure the elec tion of any person to a public office, or the vote of any vi.ter at any election. Also every person who shall, upon or in conse quence of any such gift, loan, offer, prom ise, procurement, or agreement, procure or engage, promise or endeavor to procure the election of any person to a public of fice or the vote of any voter at any elec tion. Also" every ;ierson who shall com mit any of the acts 'hereinbefore referred to In order to secure a nomination for of fice, either for himself or for any othr person, by any political party; ami lastly every person who shall advance or pay, or cause to be paid, any money to or for the use of any other person with the Intent that such money, or any part thereof, hall be expended In bribery at any elec tion, or Who hall knowingly 'pay, or cause to be paid, any money to be expend ed. wholly or In part, in bribery at any election. Upon ' conviction the man found guilty of any of the foregoing misdeeds Is to be subject to Imprisonment for not less than two months nor more than five years; and for every such of' tense he shall also forfeit the sum of W0. with cost of suit, to the person instituting the prosecution; "provided always that the foresolng enactment shall not extend to any reasonble sums paid or agreed to be paid in or about any election for printing and actual traveling expenses, for dissemination of Information to the public, for polit leal meetings, demonstrations and con ventlons, for the employment of watch era at elections to the number provided by law, or on account of any bonafide legal expense Incurred at or concern Ing any election." All such legitimate expenses, with names and dates, must however, be published under oath, un der severe penalties. Section 2 of this act makes guilty of bribery and subject to Imprisonment from one month to a year the man con vlcted of receiving any kind of bribe for bis own vote or for the vote of another but exempts the recipient who takes the bribe In order to secure the conviction of the briber. Section 3 pun Ishes by $23 fine any candidate convict ed of paying or promising to pay for meat, drink or entertainment for an other or others, with a view to lnllu encing votes. Section 4 gives from a mouth to a year in jail to the man con victed of tampering with voters In any way such as by threats, Intimi dation or fraud. Section 5 provides strlgcnt penalties for personation : voters and relating; section 6 re stricts legitimate expenses per candl Uuto to 100 for the first 5,000 voters, or less, plus $2 for each additional 100 voters up to 2.1,000, $1 for every hundred above i!5,000 and up to 50.000 and HO cents per hundred above CO.inni; and sections 7-2;! Inclusive relate to meth ods) fur securing a thorough enforce meat of the foregoing provisions. The two acts uru worthy of careful nnd detailed study. Copies of each may tie had on application to the Civil Ser vice Reform Association of Pennsyl vania, nt los South Fourth street, I'll i 1 adelphla. . ... Mr. Pollock, the Philadelphia bust ness mun who is booming John Wuna- inaker, admits that he insulted Sena tor IJuay at Erie, but thinks Quuy shouldn't mind It. Pollock Is evidently a good man for the honorable John to shuke. Restrict Immigration. The Immigration Restriction league, which Is working for the passage by congress of the Lodge literary test. Is taking pains to rectify the impression left by many newspapers since election that the so-called foreign vote is what saved the cause of sound money. It docs not dispute that the German, French, Welsh, Scotch und Scandina vian Vote was very generally cast for McKlnley, nor does It deny that the record of these citizens by adoption on the questions lately nt Issue com pares favorably with the record of the native American class. It merely de sires to direct public thought to a prop er discrimination between desirable and undesirable classes of immlgra tlon to the end that the latter may In time be excluded. The Lodge bill, it may be pertinent to note, especially In view of the fact that It has right of way In the senate this week, alms to accomplish not the ox elusion of foreigners generally, but only of those who are Ignorant alike of their own language, of an occupa tlon and of the standards of living and character which distinguish the Amer lean people. Its provisions were re cently explained In The Tribune, but lest that explanation may have been overlooked, we repeat It herewith. The bill excludes from entrance to the coun try all persons above 14 years of ago who cannot read or write one language but excepts all aged persons not ho able to read or write who are parents or grandparents of an admissible Im migrant, and allows them to accom pany or be sent for by the qualified immigrant. It proposes a test which Mr. Lodge thinks most practicable and efficient In excluding fraud. It gives the following directions to Inspectors For the purpose of testing the ability of the Immigrant to read and write, the Inspection oltlcers Khali be furnished with copies of the constitution of the United States printed on numbered uniform paste board slips, each containing five lines of said constitution In the various lan guuge.4 of the Immigrants. These slips shull be kept In boxes made for the pur pose and so constructed as .to conceal the slips from view, each box to contain slips of but one language, anil the immi grant may designai. the language In which he prefers the test shall be made. Each immigrant shall be required to draw one of said slips f;o:.i th box. and read. and afterward writo out In full view of the Immigration officers, the five lines printed therton. Each slip shall be re. turned to the box Immediately after the test Is finished, and the contents of the box shall be shaken up by an Inspection officer before another drawing Is made. !.o immigrant failing to read or write out the Blip thus drawn by him shall be ad mitted, and he shall be returned to the country from which he came at the ex pense of the steamship or railroad com pany which brought 'him. The inspection officers shall keep In each box ut all times a full number of the printed pasteboard slips, and in the case of each excluded mmlgrant shall keep a certified memoran dum of the number of slips which the Im migrant failed lo read or copy out In writing. It Is clear that such a measure would operate ndvantngeously in the case of all Immigrants whose admission to this country would add to the country's se curity. Indeed. If any fault is to be found with It It Is that It proposes too simple a test. American citizenship ought to be valued sufficiently high by American legislation to moke It an In centive fur careful preparation on the part of thbse in other lands who would enjoy Its privileges. There is nothing narrow or bigoted about such a propo sition. It is the obvious common sense of the matter. The necessity for a lit erary test is Indicated by the fact that whereas, in 1880, nearly nine-tenths of our Immigrants were able to read and write at least one language, toduy a third are illiterate, and the tide of un desirable Immigration, instead of re ceding, Is steadily growing. No other fraternal ceremonial of which we know represents a more fit ting; form of tribute to the dead than the Elks' annual Lodge of Sorrow. The gathering, once each year, of the mem bers of this influential and growing or der In a public place to signify by elo quence, poetry, song and prayer their sense of loss for departed brothers coupled with their sense of that hop of immortality which is Inherent In each human breast and which alone reconciles the living to the dead. Is so clearly an occasion for sympathetic in terest that we make no excuse for de scribing it elsewhere in detail. Our Duty and Spain's Peril with Reference to Cuba. The Washington Post Is a journal which has been a consistent and ag gresslve friend of Cuba, but It presents from official sources a forecast of the probable consequences of American recognition of Cuban belligerency which tends to shake one's confidence in the wisdom of such a stey. The Spanish government, it points out, now Insists that peace reigns In Cuba,- In the sense that no constituted government exists In opposition to the sovereignty of Spain. The logical se quel of this position is that no block ude can be declared of Cuban ports, American property must be protected on the Island by the exercise of the po lice powers of Spain, American fit I zens must be tried for alleged offenses by the civil tribunals, and American merchant vessels cannot be Interfered with unless they are actually engaged In the landing of munitions of war for the purpose of treasonable attempts against Spanish sovereignty. Our po sitlon. the Post contends, would change for the worse under Interna tlonnl law in all these particulars the moment we saw fit to recognise that a state of war existed In Cuba, and thu the government of Spain was no longer responsible for the maintenance pence and order In the island. Spain would acquire, under the law of nations, the right of search of all American vessels unthu high sens for contraband of war. Spanish gunbouts would be justified lu hovering about the port of New York, and every other American port, nnd In ordering every vessel which left the harbor to heave to nnd be searched for contraband ar ticles. The question what constitute! contraband, and the question how fur the Spanish officers should go in their search would be likely to arouse flic tlon with American captains and per hups even provoke the interference of some hot-headed liavul officer of the L'nlted States. "The rule regarding what constitutes contraband of war his," Buys the Post, "never been fully settled in the courts ut international law. The Spanish government wouli undoubtedly Insist In the present case that provisions came within the dellnl tlon. because they wuuld contribute to keep the Insurgent forces In the field. It would 'go against the grnln' so acutely with many American mer chant captains to heave to at the man date of a Spanish gunboat thut It is feared that some of them might refuse to do so and Invoke a broadside from the Spunish guns. Such an event would so inflame public feeling In both countries thut the utmost spirit of for bearance by the two governments would hardly avert war." We cannot disguise the fact that Buch consequences as these would be more serious thun most thoughtful Americans would cure to Incur save as a last re course. The Information in possession of the state department at Washing ton Is said to be that Spain has agreed to end the rebellion within the present dry season that Is to say, before next July or recognize the right of the l'nlt ed States to view the uprising as one coming within the legal purview of bel ligerency. If this be true, our present cutirse Is, and the course of the next administration will be, to wait a reu sonable time, and then, If things be not better, to act In defense of imperilled American Interests. Under an act of the legislature passed two years ago it is possible to raise In this county by special tax for road improvement a turn not exceeding $60, 000 per annum. If there Is a tionulnr demand for such a levy and expendi ture, and It reaches their notice by personal Interview, letter or petition the present board of commissioners will no doubt gladly start the legal machinery In operation. There cannot be two opinions as to the need of good roads In Lackawanna county, but we are not sanguine that the public Is yet prepared to put its hand Into its pock et and lay down the requisite price. hen Mr. Cleveland on Saturday was introduced for the first time to Mark Hanna, we wonder if he did not intuitively regret the turn of fate which took from him at a critical mo ment the Democratic Hanna, Daniel Manning a loss from which he can truthfully date his own political de cline. There Is very little doubt among those whose business calls them fre quently among the local courts that if quiet steps were to be taken by the proper authorities to ascertain whether Jury-fixing has yet assumed a place among the lost arts. It would be an In quiry productive of good results. The Wisconsin state Republican com mittee has audited Its accounts and thrown open Its books. The Pennsyl vania committee could do the same but there would be little to show. It handled less money this year than dur ing any prior presidential year since the Republican party was founded. It Is announced that Toronto labor or ganizations will urge the enactment by the Canadian parliament of legislation which will prevent Americans from working In Canada. We guess such a law would do smnll harm compared with one returning the compliment. Mr. Cleveland's message consists. It Is suld, of 18.UD0 words, of which prob ably more thun 15.000 are In review of department reports. If Major McKln ley wants an easy re-election, let him set the example of boiling presidential messages down. It Is clearly unkind in Senator Quay to subject the Philadelphia Inquirer to the painful necessity of havlnir to house on the senatorial Issue between heavy advertiser and a personal chum. The London public is subscribing shillings and guineas to buy Ambassa dor Bayard a Christmas o.-esent. This very nice for liayard. But It is rather a weak testimonial to English discrimination. , Jlist a Word op Tu)o , of Casual Mention Select Councilman Lansing Is an enthu siastic believer in Scranton's future.-and yet ha Is not blind to certain dltllcultles in the way of Its complete realization. "The question 'What will become of Scranton after her coul gives out?" does not bother me a bit," said he in the course of a cas ual conversation the other day. "It Is the history of American cities that their transition from pioneer to varied and di versified Industries is accomplished utmost imperceptibly. Syracuse, for Instance, was reared on salt; Rochester on flour and Ilullalo on her lake wuter, yet toduy Biilt evaporation Is only an Incident of By in curs commerce, flour-grinding of ltdeh. esster's and Uuffalo. In addition to Its lake traffic, has become the lurg est railroad center In the east. When it comes time for Scranton to fall buck on other Industries besides rall-muklng and coal-mining, I dare say she will Hn 1 the new industries ready at hand; thut Is. if one objection can be overcome In the meantime. It is a fact that In compari son with many competitive places the prices asked here for factory sites are high In some cases disastrously high. I know of at least four manufacturing en terprises that within a relatively brief pe rlod have been deflected elsewhere by Just this one facial. There is too much unoccupied laud In Scranton under the control of nxencles that hold it at a fancy llgure and yet fall to pay taxes In pro portion."

"This Is a specimen of what we receive almost dally." remarked Assistant Cost master uslhuus to a Tribune man the other day, as he showed the contents of a letter Just opened without revealing the signature. The letter rend: "Postmaster, Scranton, Dear Sir: Will you please send me the ns me of un attorney who Is good liar?" "How will you answer thut?" nas askeil.
