Until kous are conquered and rail
way tracks apportioned so that two
trains will never meet, wrecks will
need to b. accepted as inevitable, and
loss of life viewed in the light of a
toll to civilization. This latest terri
ble crash seems from information now
at hand to beloni to the list of acci
dents, pure and simple.
It is .not through any eteess of sym
pathy with (trover Cleveland's im
perialistic conception of the executive
function that the public regrets the
failure of the. Ilornblower nomination.
It ll due, instead, to a profound and
growing lack of confidence in the be
liefs and practices of those to whom
Air. Ilornblower is politically distaste
ful. TBERI IS AN incipient dnire on the
part of the Democratic press in this
state to open their psrtfosn mud-batteries
on 'ialusha A. Grow. Sime al
ready have givon currency to a cam
paign lie about .lr (Irow's coal mines:
and it is seemingly hard for the re
mainder to keep back from the old tac
tics. At this juncture, therefore, it is
timely to inquire if thn game is worth
the defilement" Mr. Grow will win in
any event. If lied about, ho will win
by two hundred and fifty thousand
majority, but if he be let alone, the
fiuures may fall as low a two hundioj
thousand. Why, then, not save the
lies for a more vulnerable ticket?
THE BOARD of trade of Portland, Ore.,
has signified its intention of trying to
get the national board of trade to in
dorse the principle of federal aid to the
construction of the Nicaragua caual.
We trust it will not succeed. The gov
ernment of the United States bag re
cently done enough meddling with
other people's business to justify a
thoughtful pause. If the Nicaragua
canal is feasible, at all, it will not neod
to be saddled upon congress. Private
capital will gladly enough seek the in
vestment, on a private basis. If it is
not feasible, this era of deficits and
panics Is n poor time to apring another
big congraislonal "job" like some
whioh history tolls of, and like one,
especially, which cam i to griof when
the Nicaragua Canal Construction com
pany because a memory.
The PACT that business depression is
co-extensive with civilization supplies
no justification for American tariff
smashing. In the possession of ino.it
culablo resources, unhampered by a
great military burden anil with work
ingmen skilled in their respective Hues
of trade, we ought, with reasonable
turilt' protection, to be very materially
more prosperous than any European
nation. The simple fact is that we
were progressing toward a new dig
pensation of industrial thrift when uu
Inflamed Hopulistic revolt arrosted this
forward stride, and the hostile hand of
amateur revenue reformers turned the
bait into a backward rush. Let con
gress give credible assurance of contin
ued tariff protection and of the mainte
nance unimpaired, of a sound and am
plo currency, and see how quickly
American brain and American enter
prise will sknke off this oppresjive stu
por, and stride forwarl, a;alu, to
gTtatei and braver deeds.
OCR rcQlf ACIOVa friend, the editor of
the Lebauou Report, thinks that Tin:
TRIBUNE "has bsnn commenting in
eloquent ailtmce upon the fact that a
man with ex-Attorney General Pal
mer's record on the saloon question
ami his gener illy good r potation as an
upright, Indaptndant sltiteo failed to
sfcnre the Republican nomination
for congresjmanat-largiv" Oaf Mind
will excno us for suggesting that we
fail to catch the point. Mr. Palmer is
not a candidate for any state office,
never wanted to be a candidate for
congressman nt-large, and had no other
purpose Rt Hirrilbnrg the other day
than to mime and work for n man in
every respect his peer, and in point of
age, experience and renown, decidedly
his superior. The journal which should
comment, audibly or otherwise, upon
the fact that a man who was not run
niug for office, and who refused to run
for it, didn't get it, would lay itself
open to mero and jnster charges of
Idiocy than The Tribune would oaro
With a sublimity oPnwvi which
would inspire admiration if one could
recover Sufficiently from the shock, the
leading organs of Democracy are be
ginnlag to speak of those who stand
opposed to the hybrid Wilson tariff and
who take occasion to expose its hurt
ful crudities and havoc-working effect a
as 'panic mongers " and ' alarmists."
Now of all the designation! which a
prefervid and squirming, press, weight
ed d iwn with the accumulating bur
den of popular censure nlong all lines
of Democratic- poliov, could utilize to
ease its pitiable chagrin, these suroly
are the most utterly gratuitious, the
Have the Democratic editors no re
collection of a time, less than four
years ago, wheu evory eagor one of
them was raising a hue and cry about
the "calamitous" MeKinley bill? Do
their excited minds retain no memory
of the tremeudous strain to whic h they
were put prior to the congressional
flections of t'0, in the endeavor to
prove that American fartni were being
abandoned by wholesale, American
farm mortgages plastering the snrfaoe
of the thrifty west, and the American
laborer bowed down under the stress
of war taxation without end? There
had never, in tue history of American
politics, been a calamity cry equal to
this; nor had there ever been au equal
instance of panic mongerinir so system
atic, persistent, and consuintu itely un
scrupulous. We all know the sequel. The cry
heightened the excitable element in
our citizenship. There was a rush to
i get iu tho tariff reform procession.
Schemes and propositions, the most
preposterous, born in the heat of men
tal panic and economic lunacy.and em
braced in smoking warmth without in
quiry or pause, quickly dotted the field
of American legislation as mushrooms
dot the snrfaco of fermenting soil.
And yet, with all this chaotic Popnlis
tic revolt impeding it and turning
men's mitiibj from the equipoise of saue
politics, the Republican party bore up,
averted panio and started the indus
tries of the country npon a now career
of profitable activity, which was not
interrupted until the Democratic ama
teurs, having deceived the masses into
a lemented misbestowal of trust, took
hold of the helm, tried to steer the
craft according to the misty lines of
their confused economic day dreams,
and wound np, before half under sail,
by precipitating the most disastrous
panic in thirty eventful years.
And now, for sooth, the Republican
who expresses himself with regard to
the contemplated prolongation of this
disastrous and well-nigh imbecile
policy must say nothing of ihe harm it
has already achieved, lest he saould be
called an "alarmist,'' or crushed under
the sarcasm of the appellation, "panic
mongirl" The men who for three de
cades made panic mongering a fine art
now rise to remark, from the soft v in
tage of entrenched political authority,
timt the tiling must atop. The poli
ticians whose sole claim to consider
tinnatallis the amazing proficiency
with which they fool the mass's, hav
ing gained their coveted end, now pos
sess the eftrontery to decree thut criti
cism must cease.
It ia a beautiful study in the poni
bilitiee of human nature; but as a
check to outspoken public opinion we
surmise that it woo l work,
HIS SENSE OF RIGHT.
It remains as the crowning anomaly
of this utterly annmabus and unprece
dented Hawaiian Lininoss that Stphn
Grover Cleveland still believe himself
loftily right. Wo cannot entertain for
a momont, iu connection with this
man, the IDipUlon which would in
stantly be directed at many another,
that tho repeateil allusion, in thn offi
cial correspond"c, to "the president's
high sense of duty'' ami his "exalted
conception of equity and honor" are iu
serted in a connciom and deliberate
spirit of hypocris, with a view to the
tiding ot a moral and a political crime.
It occurs to us that a policy of pre
tence, carried to the extreme which has
characterized the present policy, would
suhject the conscious pretender to the
danger of confinement iu o lunatic
asylum. Only upon the supposition
that Mr. Cleveland is Belf-decmved can
his course appear other than incompre
There have been iusUnees iu history
to which tho course of Mr. Cleveland
bears approximately parallel. Those
mediaeval zealots who marched to
Jerusalem against the infidel Mos
lem, encountering inestimable
dangers of famine, pestilenco
and aword, gave to mistaken
faith energies that wonld have raado
a similarly earnest performance of
their real duties fruitful of incalcula
ble good. Even the stnrdy Puritan
fathers, though they burned witches
with a sanctity which permits no smile,
are believed by certain contemporary
chroniclers, to have had u mistaken
zeal, in Mr. Cleveland's mind, nar
rowed as it has been by the iuiossant
adulations of an able but rhapsodical
class, we are quiet prepared to believe
that duty, as he view it, holds a su
preme place, just at it unmistakably
did in the active brain of Don Cjaixota
de la Mancha. But there is cumu
lative evidence that giants oan turn
iuto windmills as well, aa wind nulls
into giants; and it la decidedly as a
wiud mill that the presidential espou
tul of Liliuokalaui will Agar in our
To houest Sintho Punzji, despite h la
crednlcua complaisance, the fair Dul
elnM was nothing morouor less than a
common chamber maid, in spite of the
fait that the crack brained burlesque
knight sWore she was a princess
in disguise. Is it not possible that
when Mr. Cleveland rushed impetu
ously to the support of Q.ieen Li I, he
lookup the came of a blood-thirsty,
foul-behaved heathen, instead of a
lovely sovereign smarting under an
undeserved hurt? There has been no
single point iu Mr. Cleveland's Hawa
iian course whet-4 one can Bay with
certainty that tho policy is that of a
thoroughly level headed man. From
the first of it to the last, there is en
countered the ludicrous and yet pitia
ble trace of a diseased sense of right,
Times like the present call for per
sistent generosity on the part of our
wealthy men. Hunger that is supplied
with food is persistent; and so Is suf
fering from cold and exposure), when
there nrnno means of procuring clothes
and shelter. Privation, hunger and
want are persistant iu such timo. and
there is need that charity and geueros
ity should be as persistent also.
The call for more funds Is an appeal
that the wealth and conscience of
Srranton cannot atl'ord to disregard.
Men who have contributed once with
generosity may, perhaps, naturally feel
that they should not be called upon
again to contribute. Hut persistent
need must be met by persistent chnrity.
It is the only method by which it can
le relieved. Spasmodic giving is not
enough. Tho time sails for incessant
and systematic generosity.
It OUOHT to be worth a good leal to
Mr. Cleveland juit now to know that
bis "lofty sense of right,'' and his
"high conception of duty" are the only
things of their kind in the whole
FACTS AND FANCIES.
The election Inst night of Mr. Dolph
Alherton as secretary of the Scrauton
board of trade is attended by only oue un
pleasant circumstance, which is the fact
that it displaces an official who has
brought care, fidelity and I varied famil
iarity with Bcranl m's development to the
discharge of his office. Mr. II. A. Kings
bury retires with the unanimous respect
of the board's membership aud of the
community at large, and Mr. Athertou
enters accompanied by the lt wishes of
everybody for tho successful prosecution
of his new dutios.
The Harrity newspapers are roundly be
rating Howard Mutchlcr for his "unsound
ness" ou the Wilson tariff, sad are seek
ing to frighten him inside the traces by
ridiculing his chances for re-election. No
tloubr, Howard Is accustomed to this sort
of thine. Ha ought to be, having been in
journalism long enough. The trounlo
with him is that ho duesn't know exactly
where he does stand, economically, a diffi
culty which reflects itself in tho tariff
editorials of bis Easton newspaper.
Carboudale merchants ure represented
as greatly aggrieved nt the disposition of
the fire underwriters to increase the pre
miums on mercantile risk9. lJossibly
their grievance is au exceptional one, but
if it be of a piece with that which is gen
erally encountered, the fault lies pretty
close to their own door. That, with all
the improvements that are being made iu
tho building trades, and with the increas
ed safety experienced iu modern methods
of lighting end heating, Americans can
not prevent the percentage of fire losses
from rising, year by year, is a disgrace
which they ought to pay for, if they de
sire to be insured at all.
it occurs to me casually that those Re
publicans who seem disposed to make a
great ado over tho McAleer-Markely side
show are pursuing an erroneous policy.
To begin with, there's uothniff in it. And
in the next place, the intimation that,
their party is hopelessly rent asunder will
give the regular wing too tine an excuse
for getting caught in the Grow avalanche.
The glory of whipping a consolidated
Democracy out of their boots ehould pre
vent auy Republican from seeking to per
petuate tne present dissension.
It will be seen from thn synopsis of
Rev J. C. flogan's last Sunday sermon
that this eueriiotic For.-st Cay pastor has
abated none of his ardor as au enemy oT
the Sunday newspaper. The remarks
which he levels at the) congressman iu this
district will loubtless provoke n spirited
rejoinder. Rev. Mr. Hogau is fearless and
Impartial in the performance of the duty
that his conscience discloses to him. He
smites and spares not. A tilt between him
and the knight militant of the Scrautou
Republican would not lack interost.
How the Plum-fall Wai Bsosived.
Tho local Democratic politicians wpro
becoming very much disgruntled with
He Cleveland administration. Had not
they labored hard to roll up for him an
extraordinary majority in the county, aud
what evidence had been given as yet of
liis app'.-ciation of such service" They
bad all beeu promised office and for ten
months with an expectant look their gaze
had been turned towards Washington.
They are rertninly to be excused for be
coming hltartuni on Monday, when the
announcement was made that the collec-
tnrship plum hail dropped into Seustor
Herring's lap. It is really the first ocular
demonstration to them that Cleveland Is
ensconced in tho White house, unless the
soup houses throughout the country are
proof of this fact.
