A special session of Council will

During the past few days a num
ber of newspapers have been flour
ishing headlines predicting a na
tional catastrophe of hugh dimen
sions; in (act, a civil war, engulfing
the entire country, with Labor and
Capitol as the opponents.
Assuredly, conditions at the
present time are strained in Phila
delphia, Bethlehem, and other pla
ces, but it is too radical an opinion,
it seems to us, which is being ex
pressed by some contemporaries.
Furthermore, it is dangerous.
While it will not influence the
country as a whole, it is just such
sentiments which tend to incite the
more anarchistic classes.
While there is no doubt trouble
ahead, we believe that the better
thinkers of the country will in time
solve the labor problem satisfactor
ily, and that such conditions as
have been predicted will not come
to pass. It were better to be opti
mistic, and refrain from sensational j
journalism, which, aside from sell
ing papers, can serve no other pur
pose than that of encouraging vio
lence on the part of the irresponsi
ble and the unthinking.

THE DOLLAR GUN TAX.
To be Paid by Every Man Wbo Hunts.
A matter that the state gamecom
missioner will lay before the next
Legislature will be that of the resi
dent gun tax or a tax of one dol
lar to every man that hunts. Sec
retary Kalbfus, of the commission,
said: "A tax of one dollar would
maintain thirty game preserves
such as the three now in the state,
would pay a competent force of offi
cers and would make possible a big
ger bounty than ever before in
Pennsylvania. It would also create
a fund that woull make possible
the payment of farmers who would
winter quail and then open their
farm land to hunters who are reg
istered. Such a tax would make a
hunter's paradie of Pcnnsylvinia
and there would be ten times the
amount of game in the state that
there is now. The tax would
ipla-ethe state in a position to re
I stock its forests with more game.
I 'Hunting is a necessity as well as a
! sport,' continued Dr. Kalbfus.
I 'The state owes it to the boys of
! Pennsylvania that there be good
hunting.' There must be game if
I the state expects them to do duty
1 as soldiers when called upon, they
must be expert shooters. I believe
I that boys under fourteen should not
j be taxed. A tax might be object-
