SCRANTON, JANUARY 2, 1897.
For men who have Penroso licked It
looks us If the "NVunaiiiakor malingers
were doing a great deal of superltuous
The Senatorial Sltuntlon.
Whether Mr. Wnnamnker was per
sonally cognizant of tho exact destina
tion and purpose of every expenditure
made In his behalf within the past
twelve months may, of course, be
doubted. He could not know all the
details and he probably had no wish
to get too near them. It Is very clear
however, without reference to the evi
dence adduced by pending Judicial pro
ceedings, that he has represented from
the beginning an Idea repugnant to
decent sentiment the Idea that wealth
ulone warrants strife for public olllce.
Stripped of his money, ho would never
havo been mentioned for United States
senator. Ills claim now rests solely
upon cash cash spent Illegally, If we
accept sworn evidence: but In any
event simply the persuaslvo power of
millions. It was this that drew near
him the Leaches and the Van Valken
burgs; this that put defamers at work
to slander Penrose; this that bought
tip country newspapers by tho score
for tho manufacture of public senti
ment, and this that organized and pro
moted the largely artlllclal Business
Jlen's league, now revealed as a Wana
In a choice narrowed down to "Wana
maker or Penrose, we can see no valid
reason why an honest citizen should
prefer tho former. The latter, at least,
represents experience In legislative
matters, fine personal presence, dem
onstrated ability and freedom from
transparent cant. Ho does not poso as
a superior being. He does not affect
the look and metaphors of an exhorter
as a cloak to purposes notoriously secu
lar. He does not with one voice be
moan the degeneracy of tho times and
with another Issue directions to as un
conscionable a staff of "practical" poli
ticians as ever conspired to debauch a
state. Ho Is not a paragon; but as
men in public life average, taking them
as Lincoln used to say "coming and
going," he so clearly represents an Im
provement that honest judgment may
easily rest satisfied. He Is conspicu
ously superior to Hon. John Wana-
Sir. Penroso will bo elected. Ho will
enter the United States senate with an
unassailable title. Its members will
gladly welcome him. They will not
hope for a chance to throw him out.
It is tho opinion of the non-partisan
Washington Post that Mr. "Wnnamaker
made a mistake In his recent Interview.
"He ought," it thinks, "to attack
Quay on moral grounds. He should de
nounce hlin as a 'machine politician,'
as a man who uses money in campaigns
Instead of exhortations." If we remem
ber correctly we believe he did drop a
hint or two along this line. '
The Better Way.
We notice that there has lately been
a revival of discussion of the proposi
tion to change the manner of electing
United States senatbrs. It Is argued
by many persons that if senators were
elected as governors are, they would
more nearly represent a nopular choice
than they do at present and the senate
as a law-making body would more
readily respond to public opinion.
Some points often overlooked In this
connection are that a direct popular
election of senators would still leave
tho door open to bribery and manipu
lation at the party nominating conven
tion, which would then take the place
of the state legislature as the arena
for political fine-work; that the change
would in all probability Increase the
percentage of demagogism In the sen
ate, bringing It down permanently to
the level of the house; and that as a
matter of actual fact there Is not one
chance In 600 that an amendment to
the United States constitution provid
ing for direct elections could ever com
mand tho necessary assent of three
fourths of the several state legisla
tures. Consequently discussion of the
subject Is necessarily to a largo degree
academic and to some degree fruitless.
We wish to suggest a more direct
nnd effective method of accomplishing
tho purpose aimed at by those who fa
vor popular senatorial elections. That
Is to encourage the nomination and
election of trustworthy members of the
state legislature and to sit down hard
upon senatorial candidates who make
boast of their ability under the present
system to purchase seats In the senate
chamber. It has been shown In the
paBt that the system now in vogue can
produce good results If the people so
desire. Under it the senate of the
United States has been at times the
most august deliberative body in the
world. It therefore Is not the system
which is at fault today.
If a check is Interposed between a
faker with ability to deceive the people
and the goal of his ambition It is often
possible to strip hypocrisy of Its false
pretense In time to save the common
wealth from shame.
An exchange says: "McKlnley may
light congress." That will depend on
congress. Ho will not fight It without
A New Flying Machine.
The air ship, although somewhat
backward In coming forward, Is Btead
lly In evidence In the newspapers. Only
n few weeks ago we were treated to
vivid descriptions of a mysterious Call
fornlan mechanism which transported
Its Inventor on tho wings of the wind
for almost fabulous distances, In dead
of night. This machine, It may be
added, is still In tho dark. But a suc
cesses to It has already arisen, and
gr,e.dt aro Its possibilities on paper.
The Inventor of this latest aspirant
for aerial honors Is nPittsburgtnechan
lo named Dorsey. He, likewise, has a
few dllllcultles to overcome before the
full splendor of his achievement can
dawn upon the public. Ho proposes
to construct an alr-shlp of aluminum
which, under tho propulsion of electric
ity, will speed through the heavens nt
the rate of 90 miles nil hour. It will bo
clgar-shnped us of course, all well
regulated ships arc and will overcome
gravitation on tho prlnclplo of Darius
Green's celebrated ilylng machine
slightly amplified; that It, by a seiica
of big paddles which are to be whirled
about at the rate of 7,000 revolutions
There Is n, romance In connection
with Dorsey's experiments, lie Informs
tho reporter that about six months ago
ho let loose a model ship constructed
on the foregoing lines. It was provided
with a smnll storage battery for the
purpose of generating the necessary
supply of electricity as a motive
power. It sailed away Into tho heav
ens nnd disappeared, nnd he has never
heard of It since, although ho placed In
the little ship a box contalnig his name
and address, so that he might ascertain
Its fute in case It wnB captured or any
body came across Its battered remains.
And yet, why shouldn't Dorsey's
principle work? Aluminum Is conced
edly tho proper material and electricity
the proper motive power. Tho suc
cessful llyer must be olgar-shapod and
have wings or else It will ruthlessly
violate all traditions. Let us continue
to be credulous until the genuine article
There is talk In New York state of a
law prohibiting the giving of employ
ment to thut state's 20,000 harmless In
sane, through fear of hurting free la
bor. It would hurt free labor far worse
to have curable patients converted by
enforced Idleness Into permanent
churges upon the taxpayers.
The Complete Popular Vote,
An nnalysls of tho complete olTlclal
returns of the last presidential election
was recently made by the Philadelphia
Press. It deserves to be studied. We
give it herewith. I3elow are the totals:
JIcKInley nntl Hobart vote 7'1,:,J51
lirynn, and Sewall vote 0,303,751
Uryan and Watson vote 152,412
Palmer and Biickner vote 132.5OT
Straight Prohibition vote 127,
Silver Prohibition vote 12,
Socialist voto 40,S.'Jl
McKlnley over Bryan and Sewall. 710,720
McKlnley over Bryan, Sewall and
McKlnley's majority over all 27J,K)7
Gold standard majority 791, S01
Total voto 13,'j;0,3C5
This, observes tho Press, is an In
crease of about 1,810,000 in the total voto
over tho voto cast in the presidential
election of 1S92, an Increase which would
have been considered a respectable to
tal vote in a presidential election fifty
or sixty years ago. The plurality of
McKlnley over Bryan and Sewall Is 740,-
730; over Bryan, Sewall and Watson,
D94,318, and McKlnley's majority over
all Is 271,597. This, however, does not
give a fair Idea of how the people voted
on the question of sound money and free
silver. To get at the sound money
strength the vote cast for the McKlnley
and Hobart ticket, the Palmer and
Buckner ticket and the straight Prohib
ition ticket should be added together.
The total vote cast for these three
tickets was 7,372,583. Against It should
be placed the vote cast for tho four
other presidential tickets, which aggre
gates 0,577,7S2 and leaves a sound money
majority of 701.S01. This can be justly
claimed to bu tho size of the verdict
the country gave against free silver.
When tho verdict Is viewed In the
light of the Intelligence of the popula
tion of the states which voted for sound
money and free sliver It becomes much
more emphatic. Twenty-three states
voted for McKlnley and twenty-two
slates for Bryan, although Bryan may
get one electoral vote from California
and Kentucky each. But as this hap
pened only through defective ballots It
does not change the number of states
each candidate carried. The following
table gives the population, the white Il
literacy and school expenditures of the
McKlnley and Bryan states:
Elec. Popula- illltcr- cxpendl
States. vote. tlon. utes. tares.
McKlnley .. 272 39,022,033 822,071 $107,413,050
Bryan 174 22,492,770 1,197,003 30.4S7.0S7
This Is a more significant showing
even than that made by the popular
vote. It proves that the intelligence of
the country was largely on the side of
sound money. The McKlnley states
have nearly C4 per cent, of the popula
tion of the country, a little over two
fifths of tho white illiterates over ten
years of ago anil they spend about $2.71
per capita for educational purposes.
On the other hand the Uryan states
have 30.2 per cent, of the total popula
tion, about three-fifths of tho illiterates
and thoy spend only $1.37 per capita of
the population for educational purposes,
or less than one-third as much as the
McKlnley states. It should be remem
bered that the colored population Is left
out of this calculation. If it were In
cluded the showing for the Bryan states
would be much worse than It Is given.
With sp large a proportion of the In
telligence of the country In the McKln
ley states there can be no doubt as to
what the verdict of last November rep
resents. American journalism loses much
through the death of Kdltor Joseph 13.
Mao Cullagh of the St. Louis Globe
Democrat. He originated the present
system of Interviewing; made of his
paper a power In the land, nnd literally
worked himself to death. He was a
wonderful man, whose service to the
public will never be adequately appre
ciated. Governor Black of New York enters
upon his new trust under auspicious
circumstances. He has the confidence
of the people; he Is not politically mort
gaged for old debts Incurred during
prolonged activity In politics; and he Is
believed to possess a good back-bone,
These advantages ought to make his
administration a success.

Tho idea that "reciprocity is an
proach to freo trade" is the mero babble
of superllclal trillers with the question.
The absurdity of this contention is quick
ly apparent to anyono who investigates
for himself the reciprocity law of 1S90
and who is familiar with the true prin
ciples of tho protection theory, Jteei,'
procity is a great big question. The pub.
lie has a very inadequate notion of what
It meant as applied to our foreign trade
under the law of 1S90 or what it will
mean when applied upon a broader and
more comprehensive scalo under the new
tariff law of 1S97. It is a new question
bocauso it Is a new development from
now Industrial conditions, and hence Us
consideration at the hands of tho Plfty
lltth congress will call for the exercise of
tho broadest and best statesmanship. Con
trary to tho .popular notion, it is by far
tho most important feature of tho tariff
question at this time and is tho least un
Reciprocity Is not a contradiction of
tho protective policy. It is a logical ex
pansion of protection because It is frco
trade of dissimilar products only. The
protective-reciprocity plan not only pro
tects what wo produce, but secmes In
return for the freo admission Into this
country of articles which we do not pro
duco markets in foreign lands at favor
able rates that aro not accorded to our
customers there. Tho protective features
of reciprocity are easily discerned when it
is remembered that while our own custom
houses exact protective taxes on Euro
pean imports that aro similar to our own
products the custom houses of countries
with which we make reciprocity treaties
prevent equal competition from Kurope
In those countries with our exports.
A reciprocity arrangement between two
countries that produce similar products
would be not only destructive of reve
nues without compensation, but would de
prive labor of Its earnings and cause in
dustrial depression in each country. This
principle Is best Illustrated by our coffee
trade with Brazil, which country was the
first to sign a reciprocity treaty with us
under tho McKlnley law. For years the
republic of Brazil spent tho $03,000,000
which she received annually from tho
United States for coffee In Euiopean mar
kets for supplies which American manu
facturers and agriculturists could have as
readily furnished. The McKlnley law put
into practical operation an arrangement
by which Brazil, Instead of taking tho $03,
000,000 for her colfeo all In gold, actually
took the most of It In the products of our
farms, dallies and factories. The treaties
made with Brazil, Spain, Germany, San
Salvador, British West Indies, Nicara
gua, Guatemala, Costa Men, Honduras,
Franco for her colonies and Austila
Hungury, Involved no sacrifice of a slnglo

Ho who loves joy will surely be
A student of biology.
Him will bo amoeba much delight,
And protococcus capture quite;
The gleocaspa he will find,
And protoplasm of wiry kind,
While strange bacteria will astound
Him, on his mlcrocosmlc round.
At times ho must discriminate
Invertebrate from vertebrate;
Keep clear his eye, his lens Inspect,
Be classify and re-dissect.
When hydra and dog-fish disappear,
And liver flukes, and things more queer,
Ho will bo wonder-struck and dumb,
And huppy to delirium.
Some dny he'll spy, with dreadful fuss,
Gastrocu and bathyblus;
Boldly will hunt, In peace or strife,
A myriad hidden forms of life;
Seek vortleella day and night,
And gregaiinao bring to sight;
And what In all the earth can be
Hlcher thun this hilarity?
