INCIDENTALLY, Mr. Ilornblower'a re

very mad. It makes uioro debts to pay,
and at this rata the settlement of ac
counts between the two Democratic
factions will be a serious affair.
THESE is something due to the cour

eveu if they are known to be personally
opposed to him, in making important
appointments in the states they repre
sent. A CURRENT dispatch credits the trus
tees of Dr. Tnlmago's new Brooklyn
tabernacle with considering the ad
visability of charging stringers an ad
mission fee of ten cents to help lift the
church debt. It is to be feared such a
fee would cause many to stay nt homo

MR. GKOW AT LANCASTER.
The voter who is privileged to read
thocompleto tut of Mr. Grow's opening
speech of the spring campaign, da
livored Thursday evening at Lancas

news associations, will bo impresso.l
with thu speaker's remarkable lucidity
of thought aud his equally indisput
able sincerity ot expression. There is
no trace in it of the enthusiast or the
! demagogue. Not a linn of the address
can by any jugglery of misrepresenta

aa part ot one of the mojt symmetrical,
straightforward and effective cam
paign ntterincei ever voiced in this
uotntnonweaUb. To those who. in re
cent years, have not had evidence of
the vigorous mind of the sagacious
war-speaker of the American house of
represen tatives.this masterly presenta

most agreeable surprise. Nous but a
mind in complete mastery of vigorous
and varied powers could have con

In nu adjoining column we present,
this morning, some striking excerpts
from this remarkable address, regret
ting the lack of apaos which prevents
its reproduction entire. The roundness
and lores of Mr. (irow's nota'olo talent
for epigrams is well shown in these
quotations, but not the strong power
of his consecutive utterances, each
strengthening and re-inforcing the
other until the argument reaches its
completed symmetry and cumulous ef
fectiveness. It may be said that there
is no new thought to be contributed at
this late day to an economic discussion
which has busied our ablest economists
for more than threo-score years.

CHOOSE GOOD MEN.
inasmuch as affairs are already shap
ing for the making of legislative Domi
nations in tho various districts of
Lackawanna county, it is pertinent to
call atteution to one or two facts that
sometimes receive leant consideration
in distr lot conventions. The commun
ityof which Scran ion it the eenter has
.Town to be, in point of population,
wealth and importance, the third in
tho state. It has interests which rrf
quirsthe most careful and experienced
attention, not only here but at Ilirris
bnrg. Such attention is paid at the
capitol by persona representing Phila
delphia and also Pittsburg; but in this
region the impression has been too
general that tho selection of candidates
for representative is not of particular
moment, provida the nomine! has an
ordinarily harmless record.
Not only are Philadelphia and Alle
gheny members retained term after
term in legislative poiitioni, where
they show a watchful interest ovtr th I
needs of their respective com nu'iities,
thus gaining a familiarity with their
work and an adroitness which render
one "city" member n, match for tw I
dossnraw "country" recruits, but they
are additionally ro-inforcod by the
frequent presence of what, for lack of
a better name, may be called legisla
tive expertt, or meu who know every
"in" an "out" of the state house from
roof to cellar, and who lose little time
in putting to Its final sleep any bill
calculated to hurt the business inter
ests of their constituents. It is well to
he plain in this matter. For a city ot
Scranton's magnitude, having the
varied interests that Scranton liar, wo
have been upon numerous occations
very poorly defended against the ig
norant or nwddlesoinn oflicioutnets of
distant members, intent upon gaining
notoriety at tho expense of ttie anthra
cite region. The theory that "any
body Is good enough" to go to Harris
burg has worked ur infinite harm and
can work us vastly greater harm in
th future, if it shall be much lotigur
The point of the matter, and a point
equally applicable to both parties, Is
that it is time tottop permitting indi
vidual ambitions or mere partisan ne
cessities to hamper tho efficiency of our
legislative represantatioi. When a
member thows keeu wit, rea ly com
mand of the situation, in nhortgool
staying qualities, it is timi be wer
kept where he can do the most good,
not only to his party but to his district
and hlssr ction. When he fails to show
thcte qualities, no matter what his
wealth, or bounty or SDecial "pull," he
should be tnrned down. If the conven
tion will not do it for him, the people
should, and in the end all parties and
all classes will be the gainers by such
brisk methods. The importance of
Scranton and of the county in
general demands that men adequate
to the situation b'.i kept in the legisla
ture; and it is decidedly more import
ant that they should be adequate than
that they should livo on this street or
that street, train with this crowd or
that crowd, or voto this ticket or some

W Buy In th Butt Market.
Me. drew ot LjneitsUi.
The free trader objects to all attempt.
by legislation to secure tho home market
for home production, because tho xreai
law of trade, he claims, is to buy where
you can buv tlie cheapest. That is true.
Bttt the consumer in ull cases buys cheap
est when he pays easiest. The stute ol
things which gives to the laborer the larg
est employment at the best wages enable
him to pay easiest, and in tout way be
buys cheapest, no matter what the nomi
nal price ot the article may be, for without
employment ho could not buy at all, and
with scant employment must buy scent
Supplying the home market by homo Utboi
gives to home labor the largest possibl
employment, aud the nearer the produce)
and consumer are brought together th
better for both, for each thereby saves :l
trie cost or aouble transportation.
