The president doesn't exactly balance a chip on fiiH shoulder, but he gives the Veylerltes several vigorous punch es In the ribs, and Intimates they may look for more. . The President's Message. It will be the general Judgment that Mr. Cleveland's last message as presi dent of the United States was his best. There is breadth, dignity and sclf-P!-Besslon about this state puper which will command for It on ull sides a most respectful hearing and add greatly to the good opinion in the midst of which Mr. Cleveland will close his offi cial career. Very naturally the part of It which refers to foreign relations will receive the most eager attention. The presi dent with dignity sets clear the course of this government with reference to Turkey and between the lines adminis ters a merited rebuke both to those at home who by Intemperate speech embarrass and Injure the government's efforts for the protection of Its citi zens and of the dilatory powers of Eu rope who are letting mutual jealousy not ns accomplice to unspeakable bru talities. liut it is in his review of the Cuban problem that Mr. Cleveland is at his best. The one who will read this part of the message with care and fairness will (ind in it no lack of sympathy for the rlnhtful asplrutlons of the Cuban people, but also no wavering, In defer ence to uninformed clamor, from the straight line of executive duty. Ve are entirely five to say that we regard the president's statement of the case as all tliwt can with reason be asked for and quite all that the United States government nt this time Is in duty bound to fulfil. Mr. Cleveland 1ms evidently been Im proved by adversity. Mr. liayard has shown wisdom In de clining to be put on the British public's already large dead-head list. Fake Enterprise. The Tribune agrees with Xewspnpor dom and many other prominent author ities on such matters that the padded special edition, put out Bimply be cause during the holiday season mer chants me accustomed to spend money liberally on advertising, Is a form of newspaper enterprise more honored in the breach than In the observance. It was itself at one time guilty of this mistaken activity, but one year ago It repented and neither this year nor In a future year will It solicit advertise ments from the business men of Scran ton for a sham purpose. Of what possible value to the adver tiser is a sprawling advertisement stuck somewhere amidst twenty to thir ty pnges of similar advertisements all of them sandwiched In betwepn boiler plate reading matter or "chucked to gether" miscellany? Why should any advertiser pay to have his announce ment lost In such a waste of dreary and unread extra pages? Why should any newspaper properly sensible of Its obli gations to its patrons ask any business man to sink his money In such trans parent foolishness? During the next three weeks The Tri bune will find room for Us advertisers as well as for Its news and literary features without tax upon the popular patience. If It has to print twelve In stead of eight pages It will print twelve, but they will be as carefully edited and as regular In contents and arrange ment as any other dally issues of this journal. Merchants who wish to adver tise In such a way as to reach the buy ing public will appreciate the advan tage of space In regular Issues and shun the sham boiler-plate special edition which represents nothing but a waste of money and a perversion of enter prise. The electoral college of Pennsylvania will not assemble at Ilarrlsburg until the second Monday In January, per haps just in time to see the senatorial fur fly. For a Tariff Commission. Some very sensible and timely views In favor of a permanent tariff commis sion ore advanced by Senator Cullom, one of the ablest men In congress. "It seems to me," says he, "and I know that many friends of protection think with me, that it Is high time we should do something to put the tariff system on a stable basis. We are old enough and strong enough, and so well under stand the science of government, and have at our disposal a vast array of such statistics, that wc should be able to arrive at some conclusion, taking due account of both the revenue and protection view of the question, that would avoid the derangement of trade and commerce that rises from the con stant Interjection of opposlnsr theories into the national legislation. This par tisan hippodromins with the tariff has been of Immense damage to the coun try, and my constnnt wonder is that the evidences of the disastrous effect of It have not been made more apparent. We all know, however, that It has been replete with evil results, nnd t fur one itm determined to do what I can to pre vent the tariff question from being used ns a party football for uny longer In the future than can be avoided. "What Is my plan? It Is this: I would create a perfectly non-partisan commission. I would make it perman ent. Its duty should be to keep Itself thoroughly informed regarding the dif ference In rates of wages paid in tills and other countries, the nature of our commercial relations, gathering all sta tistic bearing upon the question,' sift ing them for the use of congress, hear ing arguments of tradesmen and manu facturers upon all sides of the subject, and making a report to congress at the beginning of each session, with such deductions nnd recommendations as they, the members, choose to make. The commission should be composed of experts, who, no matter what theory they might hold in the abstract, would engage In the work in a practical man ner, having in view existing conditions and th,e hlshest Interests of the whole country. It goes without saying that the committees of congress which hnve usually performed the task of framing the tariff cannot give that study to the subject which It demands, if legislation is to be thorough and intelligent. Even while they are engaged In the work their attention Is diverted to a thous and other thine, and much of the re sult of their labor gives evidence of carelessness or Ignorance. After the passage of a tariff bill, and when con gress is not in session, no thought whatever Is given to the great question. "Unconsciously to them, conditions change, new relations spring up, new industries are created, old ones take new forms, and for the discovery of all these things committees must plunge into the question blindly. In the midst of the melee of legislation upon a my riad of subjects, and give such perfunc tory study to the matter as Is possible. With a question so vital as the tariff, this Is a policy that must constantly keep the Industrial and commercial In terests of the country in a condition of alarm. One party may set up a sys tem ever so good, but no investor or producer can know at what moment an other party may come Into power and disarrange everything that has been done; and so factional organizations go on, alternately playing shuttlecock with the problem and capital Is kept always In a condition of nervousness and timidity. With the question In the hands of a commission, though that commission would be In a way only advisory, the case would be entirely different. The commission would sit permanently. All of the arguments of the various Interests could 1 heard by It. There would bo no complaint from citizens that their views had been un heard or ignored. The whole system could be reduced to a science. The commission would sfand between ex tremists of all parties. It would mako the arguments of the mere theorist, the dreamer and the ignorant, blatant dem agogue of no effect. While congress would, of course, review anil analyze the commission's work.and legislate ac cording to Its own judgment the way to an intelligent legislation the country has never yet enjoyed would bo blazed, the labors of the committees and of congress vastly relieved, nnd the coun try would be satisfied that conclusions were thoughtful nnd Impartial, and not for the purpose of sustaining a mere party cry." A provision for the appointment of such a commission should be incorpor ated In the next tariff bill. Mr. Cleveland's "say" Is interesting and In places valuable, but It would have attained a far larger audience had it been conveyed In one-third its num ber of words. "Money in Politics." "Fighting Jack" Robinson, of Media, addresses a breezy letter to the Phila delphia Times in reply to some stric tures which that journal had volun teered with reference to the recent Ulair county senatorial primaries. The Times had Intimated that the Irrepres sible Median had been Instrumental In attacking John Wanamaker's char acter. Mr. Robinson denies this with characteristic energy and then adds: Whilst on this subject, there is a graver peril even than scandal-mongerlng. This can only hurt individuals. The mutter I refer to affects the state and goes to the very foundation of our government. It is the Inordinate, enormous and princely sums of money that are being expended, and will be yet spent, to secure the prize. If the entrance of the "business man" In politics is to mark and empha size the fart that no one who cannot com. mand the "weulth of Urmnz and of ind'' has any show in such a race It will be a grievous hour for the commonwealth. As a candidate for the "Millionaires' Club" I may never reach the goal, but I will have the satisfaction of knowing, If de feated, that the race was not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, but that he who conquered did so by the ex penditure: of a fortune that would have purchased a dukedom on the other side of the Atlantic. Nor do I say this from any chagrin born of probable discomfi ture, for I recognize the necessity of very large legitimate expenditures In u campaign for the I'nited States senate in a state like this. But, 'Mr. Editor, are not 1u and I as good patriotic, citizens bound to preserve the virtue of the state; to sound the alarm for good government when we believe that all which makes for it and for the continuance of our cherished Institutions under the sway of self-government and civil liberty is en dangered; to smite the foe, who, In any guise, much less the hypocritical gulsa of business methods, shall spread the lure and bait of the golden hand befjre those who shall have voice In deciding tho composition of the so-called Ameri can House of Lords? Those who have had opportunity to examine the Inside of the present sen atorial struggle do not nepd to be told to what Mr. Robinson alludes nor with what Justice and timeliness his words are freighted. But we cannot think with Mr. Roblns,on that he "golden hand," despite Its manufactured senti ment voiced in high-sounding resolu tions adopted ostensibly by Intluen tiol business men's organizations, stands yet In much likelihood of win ning the race. The total amount paid by the govern ment in tensions and the cost of dis bursing the same for the Inst thirty one years is J2.034.817.7CH. This lacks only a little over $.14G.7i:!,500 of being equal to the high-water mark of tho interest-bearing public debt. But no decent American begrudges the money. - Lax Citizenship Laws. In speaking of tho success of a recent proposition to amend the constitution of Minnesota so as to restrict the light to vote In that state to those who have resided in the United State's nt least five yenrs, become American citizens and resided In Minnesota more than sis months, the Philadelphia Press men tions a fact not generally known when it says there are 17 stales In which nn Immigrant fresh from Europe could ar rive within Just a little more than twelve months of a presidential elec tion, declare his Intentions' and Vote In the following national election for pres ident. Four years late r he could vote a second time for president and then If he chose he could change his plans and return to Europe without ever having become a citizen of this country, al though ho had exercised one of the highest privileges It grants, namely, the right to help elect its chief magis trate. The Press is eauil;' within the truth when it su)8 this laxity of state legis lation upon so vital a subject Is not only a public scandal, but also a gross injustice to American-born citizens who are compelled to reside in the United States twenty-one years before they ac quire the right to vote. When the re formers next work for uniformity of slate laws with reference to bankrupt cy, marriage and divorce, let them also Include in the list laws conferring up on aliens the use of the suffrage. It Is manifestly an outrage that the present discrepancies should exist. In Michigan this winter an effort Is to be made to abolish the ofilce of cor oner and put its duties, when any du ties are necessury, under the jurisdic tion of the district attorney. This ap pears to be an eminetnly sensible proposition and It might well receive consideration at Harrlsburz. - A new cabinet dark horse has been trotted out In the person of Joseph Choate, whom the boomers propose for secretary of state. He is not our pref erence, but he would undoubtedly make a good one. The Scran ton Tribune seems to derive great enjoyment from Indulging its snap ping, snarling propensities ut the Record. W'llkes-Hurre Record. Xot at all. It only rips open sham when impelled to do so by duty, and then never with relish for the task. Mr. Bryan will lecture and write a bunk, but It is hoped he can yet be dissuaded from undertaking to elevate the stage. Those who say the tariff cannot be taken out of politics forget that the party which fools with it can. It is a pity Sir. Cleveland didn't strike his present gait earlier in the race. Jiisf a Word op Tuto of Castial Mention A gentle man who but recently had ar rive! in this country from Germany en tered the West Side police station the other iiijjht. He wanted to communicate with Dr, I'Vlnberg, of tho central city. That physician was called by telephone anil Lieutenant Williams, of the police, tiiriirtd to the man from Germany. "Here's the doctor, now; speak to him," said the lieutenant. "Yon Letter do It." said the gentleman from the Rhine, "I can't talk English." lie thought that the machine wouldn't accept uny other language. The man who hammers the snare drum In Bauer's band we can't mention his name out of respect to his recent nnr rlage was riding on a street car toward Hyde Park some time ago In company with a number of equally light-hearted West Fillers. They were telling stories and as the car turned the corner of West Lackawanna avenue and Ninth street (the old line was in operation then) Mr. .M., of the band, benan to contribute Ms part of the entertainment. Certainly, it was funny, and the snure drummer was congratulating himself upon his success ns the car rolled on toward Main avenue. It happened thut the car stopped just ns Mr. M. finished his story, and before the auditors could laugh the cur conductor yelled "Chestnut:" lie referred to the street. They who had heard tho story saw the humor of the coincidence and the laugh turned from the story to tho suave drum mer. He was choked. And as the conductor reached his hand to the rope and gave the go-uhead signal the snare drummer, referring to the con ductor, exclaimed: "He not only roasts my story, but he has to ring the bell on it." And the car rolled on. -O- One of the candidates for alderman of the Fifth ward is earnest, but he Isn't much on orthography. While at work In tho mines one day this man chalked "Danglr" on one of the gangway doors. Some one corrected him: 1 "That's not right, Benjamin; you shsuld spell it 'danger.' " "Of course." suld. Ben, as he changed the spelling, "of course; I wag thinking of 'stranglr.' " Itev. Thomas De Uriiehy surprised his audience at tho Jackson Street Baptist church Siinduy night, when he preached his lirst sermon to the Hyde Park public, ills method Is far from the conventional. He told Irs ncdiors that short sermons would be tne rule and he encouraged laughter nnd llght-heartedness In the house of the Lord. The significant part of it Is that when leaving the church everybody seemed to be greatly pleased with "the new minister." -O- A novel race was witnessed In the Twelfth ward Saturday. Patrick TulTy and Hick Ryan are the "Two Johns" of the ward, the. one weighing 311 pounds and the other 3tr. They happened to meet at Morgan Sweeney's barn about S o'clock and found there a group of ud mlring a new team of stalwart chargers that Morgan hud just purchased. The "Two Johns" got Into a dispute over horseflesh in general, and .Morgan's team In particular, and the upshot of it was that they agreed to put their relative judgments to a test by racing the two' horses. TnfTy led out the animal he hel l was the better and Ryan took his choice to the middle of the road. With the aid of the crowd und sundry barrels anl boxes they munaged to mount, and start ed around the block nt the wold from Morgan. But the crowd never got the treuts which were bet on the result. Iloth horses refined to make the circuit of the block. The race had to be declured off and the "Two Johns" had their estima tion of the worth of Sweeney's lior.1t 3 greatly lessened In consequence. -O- Thnt there Is something In a name is shown by an Incident narrated a day or two ago by a local cigar dealer. Several months ago a certain manufacturer of cigars who was also something of nn ex pert on prize-ring subjects, conceived the Idea of naming a brand of smokers after a famous (or infamous) pugilist. The stock In the cigars was first-class, it was made to sell for VV) per thousand nnd retail at 10 cents a piece; but the picture and the nnmo of the fln,hter on the lid "queered" the whole project and the en tire lot of cigars had to be auctioned off to the hlchest bidder, who got them so cheap, he Is now eelling them for a nickel apiece. -O- N'nrr.lier on of Inmmore's new paper, t'V? It.inclan!. I.ub vi , tr.'.red, with l. HatiR'aey editor. Jn Its salutatory the Star .lard rays: "I.ocnl Journalism, which a fi w years ego was made a butt of ridi cule by metropolitan nnd urban newspa per.", 1".:'S at last become ns great a neces sity as Its collateral advancements made, by electrical science. The electric; light now competes with gas monopolies and oil trustsj'the trolley cir Is now a favor ite rival to the railroads. In a local wiv; ur.il there Is no reason why local Journal ism, when competently conducted, may not make It presence Indispensable to the biiBlnet-'s Interests, ns well ns to the moral good, of all within Its naturally ruescrllied limits. We do not hope to re. dure the tubxcrlptlon list on any other Jciirnal, however remote; nor Is It our In tention to become n destructive rival to any paper, however near. ill we want and hope for Is the putiomifcv of our own people, and no decent effort l our part will bp scared In order to secure this." We wish the Standard success. Tilt: SI'f CIAI, EDITION. Rochester Democrat anil Chronicle. ' Newspaipenlom today regards the "spe cial edition" as a confession of weukness. It is usucliy I: sued on sume such anniver sary as Decoration Day, the Fourth of July, Ksster, or Christmas, entirely lr relavant to ihe puper or Its history. Th first step In Its making is to send forth an army of advertising golicitois to both er the life out of every actuul.ur passible advertiser within reach with efforts to coax or bulldoze them Into taking extra space at extra rates. Kvery . victim Is freely offered uny Inducement that seems likely to "fetch him." Promises that -'an-not by any possibility be kept are made by solicitors working for "a record." Marvelous yarns ure told about the enor mous size of the edition to be circulated. Kvery advertiser is id have the best po sition und the newest and handsomest display type. A. Is assured that his rival In business, II., has taken a hulf-page, and. ufler lie has thus been deluded into renting space thut he doesn't want, the face is used as u lever to pry the half page order out of It. So, by hook und by crook, a "good showing of tfds." Is se cured, und then, save for the labor of res urrecting and dusting the cobwebs off of old and forgotten display type, all the real speelul work on the "fpeclal edi tion" is done. When the "special edition" finally ap pears It Is generally a ridiculous illustra tion of "vaulting ambition that o'erleaps itself," the worst-looking, worst printed, most carelessly made' up, most unreadable, most unsellable, und, for udvertlsers, the most worthless puper ever Issued by lis publish rs. Appearing on a holiday, when people have less time at'.. I thought than usual for newspapers, its genuine circula tion is apt to h rather less than greater than the normal circulation of the paper. If un attempt is made, by gratuitous dis tribution, to ostensibly keep the promise of enormous circulation, the Increase of circulation Is, of course, bogus. The paper in so bulky, awkward and unhandy that njbody attempts to read it through, no body cures to lug it home, nobody wants it uround, nobody keeps it. It is glance.! at, thrown uside and quickly linds its way Into the ash barrel. It never comes up to the expectations of even Its pub Ushers in any respect. Jt is a disappoint ment to every one Interested In it, es pecially to its advertisers, for no one of them ever gets quite the position or dis play promised him, and an advertisement in a "special edition" was never known to produce any l ognlzable results. The "special edition" Is pretty thorough, ly played out, S U'Lta AR1 STATE Fl XDS. Prom tho Philadelphia Press. Would It not be wise and proper for the legislature in malting appropriations to charitable Institution to require that vouchers in detail for the expenditure of every dollar be returned to the auditor general? Such vouchers are required from tho heads of the various state de partments when there is the least ex penditure. Why should not each Insti tution to which money Is appropriated out of the public treasury be required to lender a similar accounting, and to show by vouchers for jusl what purpose tho money has ben used? We cannot see that there could be the slightest objec tion to such a requirement on the part of tho managers of an Institution properly using the money given it by the state. Those unwilling to return vouchers to show for what purpose the money waj spent would ut once declare themselves as not entitled to any consideration from the state. These vouchers for any one year would bo a great help to the legislature In de termining tho needs or any particular In stitution. They would enable the legis lature to discriminate with greater Jus tice, to give more where there was real need for it, and less where It was shown that less would be enough. These vouch ers would also serve us a protection to the stale and to tho institutions; they would proect the state In cases where the money, or uny part of .It, has been Im properly expended if there ure such ami It would protect every Institution from the possible Injustice of charges of extravagance or dishonesty, because the vouchers would show whether such charges could hold or not. From both .Ainta f vino... therefor, the aonllcatlon of such a method of accounting seems de sirable, quite as mucn so us in tne sev bimI stiife .lenartments where the strict est accounting Is required for the ex penditure of every dollar.
