in this campaign, the uiathamaticUns

by tho way, is an tdmlftblt assistant.
The old saving of "pouring oil upon
thu troubled wators" wbos.t antiquity
extends far beyond that of the Now
Testament scripture has received ad
ditional significance recently from tho
number of vessels wbich hsvn been

thrown on its beam ends, and its bal

Tin: kuu. text of the income bill
which was published in yesterday's
Titiiti'Xfc shows essentially that in
coujes above four thousand dollars
are to bo taxed and that the classes
of incomes e.xnnpted are comparatively
insignificant. Y do not b-jlieve that
this bill will become the law of the
land. One reason is that there are
enough Democratic representatives
whoso incomes txoead the amount
named in both houses of cougress who
will vote against the measure to do
aos to lose any monetary vlii9 that
wise employment would give it. Tee
loss of tini is donbly the Iosj of money
wheu the economy of lime woold

its cost. Ic is to be hoptd tint City En-giae.-r
Phillipi will further his inquiry
as to exactly what proportion o( the
contemplated expenditure would re
main in this city. It will afford the
vtv strongest argument In favor of a
quick ratification of the work.

It will take an entirely new crop of
fools to make possible another such an
Democracy's platform demanded a
revenue tariff, branding anything el so
s fraudulent and unconstitutional.
Democracy's leaders respond with a
tariff which neither raises revenue nor
abates, save in spots, "unconstitution

ible opportunity to do mischief. The
brand of Cain is growing too popular.
The senate committee on pensions
made an adverse report on the bill
providing for an increase to the extent
uf one hundred dollars a month on all
pensions granted for the loss of both
eyes. The reasons given for tbe re
, fusal at this particular juncture in our
financial affairs seem to lie ample.
Although if times were thriving and
there were abnndant sums in the treas

Tut; two rvaiUSTS in Florida who
both declare they want to fight but do
not seem to be making heroic efforts to
get at each other, may not be exactly
like the two boys of whom it was said,
"one is afraid end the other dassent,"
but there is a prevailing belief that
under all the adverse circumstances
which surround them the fight either
will not come off or else will be a fizzle.
In either case the public is to be con
gratulated. The nomination of Wheelorn. Peck
bam of New York, to be associate
judge of tbe supreme court of the
I'nited States, it Is understood, is in
pursuance of aud conforms with the
President's action In the Hornblower
sase. It will be difficult to see how the
lenate can give a valid reason for re
jecting this nomination, as Mr. Psck
aam has always figured with the
StmtMl J. Tilden wing of the New
York Democracy and has been promi
nent in all efforts at purifying politics
sud has an uncommonly clean record,
ilthough a pronounced Jeffersonian
Democrat. As a representative of the

GREAT BOOK OFFER.
Never before in the history of news
papers nor of literature has there been
such a L'enerons offsr as that whioli
Tin: Tkihi'ne makes to its readers to
day. On another page will be found
thu names of a vast numbsr of books
in standard Enirlish and Amrlcan
literature, works by the very best
i authors which are almost giveu away
and, in fact, furnished to TlUBUME read
I ers for a mere song. These books were
uot constructed on a cheap scale for
tbe purpose of selling cheaply. They
belong to three regular aeries aud were
originally intended to be sold from a
large publishing house of the highest
respectability, guaranteeing ouly the
Thrse volumes are comprised in three
series known as th Oxford, the R'uby
and the Columbus series. The first
one, consisting of the most complete
lines of standard works, contaius two
hundred aud sevonty-fiva titloj. The
fifty 'cents each, but
The Tribune offers them for twentyfive
cents. The Iiugby series embraces u
list of one hundred titles and contains
the best works which bate been writ
ten for boys and girls. The regular
price is seventy-five cents, but The
Tribune offers them at twenty cants.
The Columbus series contains standard
works bound in strong cloth, printed on
good paper and in clear type and, briefly,
is of such an exctllent ciiaracter as
would adorn any household. At the
prices lixed no parson in this commun
ity is so poor that he cannot bs with
ont a library of which any man minlit
well bo proud. These books will be
sold at fifteen cents each.
The coupons accompanying each set
needed, with the prices named, are few
in number, and it behooves our readers
to set about the work of cutting them
at once, as the demand in advance of
I the arrival of the books which will be
placed on sale tomorrow indicates
a great rush, and therefore it is
Impossible to tell how soon the
entire series will be exhausted. No
such offet was ever before made
and is unlikely to be repeated. The
pressing emergencies of the times com
pelled the compauy from which The
Tribune made its purchases to part with
the works at such figures as enable us
to make this unparallelled offer. Now
is the time to coins or send to The
Tribune office for the books you most
in rather hmi verse but with a tumultu
ous wave of earnest oss that compensates
for any rhythmical defects, the disap
pointed Democrat WbO condui ts the poet
ical department of the esteemed wAkt s
ISarre cews-Dealer lets Hy this soulful
The boys who wn.tid for Urover
Thinking they would lie in clover.
Are much put about
liecause they're Htill out,
Uut hisreijcn will shortly bj over.
Only tho sublime patience of tli Amer -ieau
people prevents them from I islng m
their mii;ht against lirovrr and those who
Connect him, even in wibl Itights of poetic
license, with so melitlaous, soothing and
dreamy a thiut; as clover.
From political doggerel to tho serio
comic crudities that otieoftou encounters
in eleKii'.c literature is somewhat of a step
but it must be taken. Possibly the one
extreme will neutralize the other. At all
eventa,tu au Ontario county N.Y. cemetery
stands a tombstone with this unique de
"In memory of ,
Who died May IS, IbH;
In the ti'i year of his at;e.
A 1,000 ways cut short our Days,
None ure exempt from Death.
A Honey Uee, bysiinKiua Me
Did stop my mortal breath."
If there is another Democrat who feels
like the poet-editor of the Wilke-i-barro
News-Dealer, let him keep away from the
sting of the fno trade bee while lolling iu
fields of "clover."
An excellent suggestion touchiug the
problem of relief was made by a writer in
the New York Tribune the other day. He
railed attention to the large number of
little household repairs that are ordinarily
made at this season of tho year but which
are withheld by certain thoughtless laud
lords and property owners because of the
prevalent epidemic of exaggerated econ
omy. The cost of these small alterations
will have to be met, sooner or later. It
can better be met now while labor is will
hut t accept a low wage, in preference to
idleness, thuu it could when the revival
shall restore things to a normal basis.
Those wbo have to pay the bills In either
case usually buvethu money with which
to do the paying; and the relief which the
aggregate of these opportunities for neces
sary work would afford, If improved now,
would be considerable. The suggestion is
just as good In !crantou as it is in Now

One point brought out at Monday
evening's meeting of the city boards of
trade, called to consider the projctd
bridge improvements, is deserving, it
would seem, of especial emphasis.
While the maximum csst of the pro
posed structures. Including riirht of
wny, is only 1839,086 03, nccording to
Councilman Roche's estimates, or
nearly a round $80. DUO less than had
hepii generally suppised, the major
portion of this expenditure, if author
ized next month and immediately aft
erward nettoliated, would go directly
into the hands of Hcranton's unem
ployed and thence into tbe channels of
locnl trade. In other words, tho city
would be a double gainer by getttag
this work done quickly : that is to say,
it would get it done more cheaply than
at some remote day, and its constrnc
tion, by the effect it would have iu ac
celerating business, would be a more
appreciable public benefit than would
be the case were nil workers busy at
good wagea and all storekeepers cheered
at sight of steadilv accumulating prof
its. Tho two contemplated bridge!, it is
generally conceded, nre public neces
sities. We must have them some day.
Oni natural growth, lately swelled by
the vast accessions of contributory ter
ritory nniif xed to the city in a commer
cial sonee by the expanding network of
electric street railways, which feed
Increasing thousands into the thor
oughfares of this thriving nietrop
olis, points unerringly to better and
surer facilities of quick inter-commu
mention. At best we could do without
them for only a brief tim- liy spi
ting our own Interests, wo might man
age to shove the expense over a few
more months or a few more ynnrs.
But in the end, and that do distant
one, we should be compelled to accept
the commercial login of the situation,
go into our pockets for the necessary
price and have the sorry rofl-ction that
years of opportunity had been squan
dered nil to no pnrpose.
True economy, therefore, ories ont
against delay. Time is money as thor
