land Reciprocity applies in small as well

of over-officious police brutality can
hardly be placed too emphatically un
der the ban.
An intkhkstimi rumor is that which
credits Hauators Hill and Murphy with
threatening to rosicn in case Poclum's
nomination ihidl be confirmed. It t.
unquestionably miochryphal ; first, be
cause the . New York legislature has
passed out of Hill's lianas. and secondly,
because the "vindication" blntf has
never appealed strongly to Knpir,
state favor. It may ba that if the
echemo had all its datftltl tix-d in ad
vance, with a complacent legislator
ready to st'iid thu two I Bnd4 senators
Kleefully back, the Conkllog-Platt

hard to swallow. The more credible be

who, with equal facility, kidnap cliil -dren
or make off with inanimate valn
ables, were to be brought roundly to
book. The protection which society
enjoys in this quarter is none too effic
ient. As an evidence of the civilizing in
fluence of the daily presi comes the
conviction of Shaw nnd Bates, two of
the country's most expirt confidence
men. They attempted to bunco a
farmer out of. five thousand dollars. If
that tiller of the ioil;bad not been a
regular reader of the newspapers he
would today have five thousand dollars
less to his credit at hit bank, aud two

The latest diplomatic blunder of
the Cleveland administration involves
less serious consequences than some of
its predecessors, but, if all reports be
true it is just aa glaring a breach of
diplomatic etiquette. That an intelli
gent representative of this government
should commit the extraordinary indis
cretion of Niinming dictatorial airs to
ward a friendly independent power is
almost incredible. We must assume
until the facts are clearly established
that Minister Smythe's oourse has been
It IB not the wish of any consider
able portion of tbia community to in
sist upon auch severity in the punish
ment of local offenders as would turn
justice into revenge. Nevertheless,
when an officer of the law violates that
law in performance of ita behests, it
would be trilling with n serious off mse
not to administer exemplary correction.
If there be any characteristic of the son -tenoe
imposed on the Brothers Woelker
yesterday, it is that It inclined toward
AS TO HAWAII.
It is no part of the American pol
icy to pronounce at this tints against
Hawaiian annexation. The element of
partisanship intro.ln set by Otttkoo
senators forced to defend a blundering
executive is nns emlyin a discussion
of foreign policy which involves con
siderations weighty to our nation's
future Since It was not tho wish of a
Democratic president to favor Hawaii's
manly appeal, and llnoa in the exer
cise of bis undoubtedly constitutional
prerogative Mr. Cleveland has with
drawn the annexation treaty from the
senate, it is pertineut only to discuss
the wisdom or unwisdom of such with
drawal lo the light of established facts,
but not pertinent nor seemly to seek
to tie the hands of future presileuts
who may be confronted byoonAtiom
now wholly unforeseen.
In this view tho resolution of Senator
Tnrpla committing this government
to a steadfast policy of cold neutrality
toward the aggresive yonug It-publicans,
sons of our own bloj I and thsli
of our rlesh, who have successfully es
tablished government by the people
upon the ruins of a rotten throne, is
untimely, ill-advised and exceedingly
offensive to predominant smitiment.
Ssnator Torpie'e obvious endeavor is to

visional government by committing

whose only fault was its too-implicit

THE CASE OF SIBLEY.
A good deal of unjust criticism ap
pears just now to be hurting at
the uneasy head of Representative
Julius 'AiMar Sibley If those who con
demn him for his so-called political
vagaries would pause to consider all
the fscts in the premises it is possible
that they would be more lenient in
their estimates of the man aud of li is
perplexities. Mr. Siblev is a fair type
of the enthusiasts who believe in per
forming what campaign platforms
promise. He w is nominated ou u ua
tional platform, which declared that
protection in any form was fraudulent
and unconstitutional, which threw n
l.i. metallic sop to the white metal
maniacs of the silver producing west,
and which directly and even anxiously
solicitated the co-operation of all the
discontented Populistic rabble from
Androscoggin to Sin Dieiro.
He has been foolish enough to con
sider himself bound by these protnisas.
Hu has been vsin enough to fancy that
the southern theorists who dominate
the Dsmocracy of t iday would liva
up to a strict interpretation of tho
pledges upon which thslr amazing
success was dishonestly won. With
the ardent toinp"nnent of most impia
stoned reformers, and with possibly a
somewhat hazy idea of just what the
country needed, be had rushed eagerly
in the arena, buoyed up by the hope of
naving dragons to slay and of basking
in the favor of applauding and tumul
tuous millions That the dragons
failed to fall in response to his political
thrusts was his misfortun, but not
his fault That th popular temper
has since veered from its abnormal
restlessness of tho halcyon autumnal
dnys of 180U, and has awakened to a
sober realization of tho gravity of its
stupendous blunder, Is to be credited
to Sibley's mishaps, but not accounted
as his deliberate misdemeanor.
Wo have no doubt that to a man
of Mr. Sibley's impulsive tem
perament there was much of rapture
and incitement in the prospect which
dawned upon him nt tho beginning of
bis congressional career, We have no
doubt that he actually saw bold rob
ber barons waiting to be toppled over
by the patriotic lance tin mis of Dsiuo
popullstlc reformers. It is quite pos
sible that his vision was intoxicated
with the fancy picture of oppressod
homes he would liberate; of mortgaged
farms he would rescue aud of down
trodden lu boring men whom he would
exalt into independence und blooming
thrift. As he says: "Prosperity was
promised by Mr. Wilson and hie
friends" in consequence of their policy.
"Bnt only paupers and prisons aud
gravel have followed it," The spectres
of idleness and want sit today where he
had hoped to substantial happiness
nnd joy. Is it not enough to make Mr.
Sibley tired .'
It has certainly wearied his compa
triots. MINOR FACTS AND FANCIES.

I'ai r's I'ourb'r-l'rogre.ss when it calls itt
teutiouto the fact that even WIN the
preaent police force doubled, there would
need to be individual effort ioi the part of
each citizen to suppress lawlessness aud to
volunteer In the general euuipaign agalBlt
orimo. Hut it will strike a good many
resideutiof tins city, who ure also taxpay
ers, that they should not bu expected to
do all the battling. When ureal ureas of
the City, because of He insufficient patrol
men, remain for hours exposed to the dep
reciations ot promiscuous prowlers, it is
proper lli t to iucreuse tho force bet ore
calling upon eltiSIUI to voluuteer u mili
tiamen. Senator flerriug is recommended to take
a goo i, square took at Bcranton uud then
to consider where else hucuM do ouu-
half so well. To be suru, there are places
that don't have tho woo lea blot'K pavu
luuut; that don't permit cows to patrol
the lawns aud parks; that give more than
ouu lone policeaiau to three square miles
or so of costly aud baudsoinu homes; that
do not permit great heaps of ashes, cast
off tin cans and brush to decorate the vn
cuut lot where somo day the Thirteenth's
new armory Will rear Its lofty dolus; and
that are not atll.cted with kidnapping
oi'uan grinders with a penchant for play
ing "Daisy Bell." But every community
has its foibles and its faults. Wheu the
senator gets to know us he will learn to
dismiss these minor traits; for be will be
profound, as are all visitors, in bis appre
ciation of the real Sorauton, as exempl tried

Able Deinocratio Statesmanship.
Wonhiny'uu Poat (.ncO
The secretary of the treasury iraml to
think that the govurnmeut should have an
income of some description, but that ouly
proves how sadly he is behind the times
aud bow hopelessly commonplace are bis
ideas. The Deiuocrutlc leaders in cougi es
will show bun a trick worth two of that.
They are goiug to abolish reveuue as a
means of maintaining government and tell
us h.iw to live sumptuously ou the True,
the Heautiful und the Good. Confronted
by the emergency of uu inadequate iucomu,
they have light-heartedly doubled the do
tlcieucy. Told thut there aretoo many ar
ticles ou the free list already, they humor
ously retort by adding to it. Asked to
consider the slguillcunce ot an issue of
bonds, they illustrate the folly of that
course bv destroying the borrowiug ca
pacity of the republic.
Boom the Bridge Improvement.
Scronfoa Free Prca.
The wonder is that Sorauton has not
loun ago awakened to the importance of
better communication with the West Sidu
aud the South riide. It is wonderful that
the people of these populous and impor
tant tenders to the prosperity of the city
shonld so long submit to the insufficient
and dangerous means of communication
with the central wards which now exist.
There have bean no addition to the bridge
facilities since Bcranton was a compara
tively insignificant village, aud while the
accomodations then might be tolerable or
even creditable, they are Insufttcieat aud
intolerable when the needs of a city of
luu.OJU people are taken into account.
