BCBANTON, MAKCH 8, UM ti of a Sunday edition The Tribune on Saturdaus BOW prints a special turlee fage edition, with content! selected especi ui(; or fireside perusal. There is no better paper for the home than this magni- flent Saturday edition, which is screed to regular svtiseribem without extra charge, and which is for sale at all neU'S stands for the ordinary piice of (too e$nt$ per copy, THE FIGHT AGAINST VICE. At ii went session of tliw Presby terian Soci.il Tuioti of Pittatmrg) Rev. Dr. Joe?ph Strong of New York who, it m.iy be interesting to notr. in pais inc. is ft nephew of Judge Strong of Starrncca ami a first cousin of Dr. Dauisl 13. Strang, one of The Tribune's v.iHiel contributors spok in such glowing terms of the "Institutional church" that a reporter, v!io -was prejJ ur, was ndaotd to seek for explana tory light in a snbseijufnt interview. Ilo was th:u, as we loarn from his ver Bion of the talk, print id in tb- QiipatcQ, told that the Institutional enured is a species of mission obnrob, ettftblUhed outside of denominational divisions, teaching only th cardinal points of Christianity, ami reaching out for the jre.it mass of buy toilers in our large ,i tie who art) not drawn into relig loot life by the wealthier and more ex clusive wotarlan cburcbsi in more fiisliiousble district & Continuing, Dr. Strong said that tho greatest Institutional chnroQ in the I'.iited States is Dr. Uainsford's. Wlisu he took c'aargJ it was an im jneuse broken down chnrcli, with no attendance to spjak of He s.mply turned it into an institutional church, the first in the country, for the people of all sorts and doctrines, and now it Is tha biggest and int active in New York. The Parish II mse tiloni coit 900,000. It has a gymnasium, bath rooms, school room?, kindergarten, popular lectures. domeatio training achool, boys' clubs and brig ides, and is almost in itself a social settlement iu, the line of Hull EloUM, Chicago. Au propos of tht effect of bathing on the physical and moral nature, Dr. Strong told how, after Hull H mse bad turned its cellar into "tub" rooms, men and women stood in long lines outside the doors waiting their chance to get a bith. In all that district, with a pop ulation of 6) 0)0. thre wis not one bath-room It is with a view to the reclamation, not only spiritually and morally, bnt also physically, of these great outside masses of men, these home pagans, as they have been sug gestively called, that institutional churches are buil ling in all populous parts of the country. Thut they hav a great mission to fulfill, who can doubt; in the current nnmberof the Cosmopolitan Magazine, through the medium of an Ingenious story, T. C. Crawford depicts the daily labors of a bonneted lassie of the Sil vation Arrnv, in the soiden by-places of vice-begrimed London He pictures, in eloquent fssbnn, tho continnal her oism of her tolf sacrificing ministra tions in tha very midst, touch and pres ence of fonl diseas-', pitiable squalor, depraved women, outcast men, suffer ing and starving children. It is a pic ture whoie scrupulous filelity almost sickens the reader, and yet the organi zation wLich polite Christians, in easy cirenmstances of leisure, crjifort nnd wealth, affect somHims to sneer at is the one Protestant Organization which today is going at the battie with urban poverty, crime and vice as if it meant business nnd was determined to win a victory. The institutional church will be an agreeable token if it shall signify a now recruit in this hand-to-hand fight against vice. Pension si.asiiixh as a method of debt avoidaacj is a distinctive Demo cratic expedient. - COMKOPOBI SlHOUtLT declares that the only thing he "roaily desires is the securing of a Dsmoeratio party in this state." Then the oomtno lore should hasten to get the straggling remnant that masquerades under that title in honest touch with thepiopK divest its mind of the nn- American mania for free trade, pnrga its emaciated ranks of Grover Cleveland cuckoos and nurture in those ranks, with nil the energies of his able mind, individual, political manhood, virility an 1 inde pendence as taught by that honored apostle of true Democracy, Samuel J Randall. The Kandall type of Dunce racy was something that even Republi cans could at tiro's respoct. Ic has uothlng in common with the blunder ing, blustering Confederate Democracy of Cleveland, Wilson, and Dan Voor hees, It is possibly because he is a dove of pesce that Pacificator Singerly is now flying so high among the Hawaiian cuckoos. BOGUS REFORM. Fixed by a treasury deficit which its free trade statesmanship bus been either unable or unwilling tonrfjtit upon a basis of increased federal reve nue, the Cleveland administration has instituted rigid retrenchments.often nt the sacrifice of the civil ssrvico. its policy, at times, Iias been painfully parsimonious, but this could bo endur ed, in the general Interest of sconomy, were thoro visible a manifest disposi tion to retrench fairly, and not to make this necessary cnrtailment a pretext for malicious and un patriotic stabs. The truth of tha matter is, however, that n considerable portion of D-ino cracy's economy has been practiced during the recent months of tinanolal strinaency at the direct expense of pensioned veterans. Tho records of the pension department, covering the period from July 1, 1891, to March 1, 1804, Bhow the following significant iMti: In July the pausion expenditures were $14,700,000 as against $11,200,000 for the corresponding mouth of 1891 i'i August of 1893 there was u reduc tion of over $2,000,000. Iu September $.',000,000 less was expsndod than for thd corresponding month of tho year previous. In October ttire was a re duction of one ah 1 a quarter million ;. En November jl, 000,000, in December $1,000,000. iii January nearly $5,000, 000, and in Febrniry $2,0)0,000. The reduction in the payment of pensions for the period olos(ng with yesterday, if compared with the eight mouths of the pre coding lisc il year, a 118,000, 009, At this rate of curtailment thecu l of the year will have seen a saving of $20,000,000 effected In tho matter of pensions, under tha policy of Secretary Hoke Smith whereby veterans are sus pended from the rolls, pending a moid; examination, nnd then re-instated with no recompense for tho undeserved sus pension. An extra internal tax of a few cents per gallon on boor nnd Whiskey would bare more than made up for this unpatriotic 'economy," and would not have been felt, or if felt, begrudged, by the consumers of thsso liquors. The Dunooratla reveuus re formers, however, iu their original Wilson bill refused to levy this extra tax, preferring rattier to make a new deficit of 78, 000,000, created at tho ex pense of American industry. ' All that tho Lehigh Valley Railway corporation apparently needs to do, under this Democratic administration, la to drop a recommendation into the lap of Postmaster Geuer.il Biaiell and pull out u brand now postmaster, Lynch law is never excusable until the orderly processes of the regular courts have failed. They havo not yet failed In Monroe county. IN MARCH, CLEAN UP. It is timely, nt the very beginning of spring, to direct attention anew to the need of a very general and thorough cleanting or the city us soon as possible utter tho disappearance of snow. Dur ing the period whtn the soil has been l icked together iu a compact mass by frost and ice, and when the snow iias formed a porous coating that absorbs all kinds of dirt and tilth, there has iieen accumulating a dangerous quant ity of refine, in lawns, on sidewalks, and wherever traffic or travel has left its trail of dust and wast. The more conspicuous accumulations of this character we are accustomed to remove, largely bfOBUM of prid. But the msny little traces of winter's danger ous bequests too often remain until licked up by the March sun and scat tered broadcast by the March winds, From this neglect wo inherit a great percentage of thj fevers and contag ious tiiat mak-t every spring season dreaded in advance. Prudeuce in cleanliness becomes, therefore, an in dispensable requisite to health. Another fruitful source of sickness at ibis season is the unclean cellar and the defective plumbing that is a linger ing evidence of winter's severity. It is commonplace, but it is nevertheles true to say, that even in an intelligent city lika Scranton, with its schools constantly impressing lessons in sunita tion, a very large proportion of pro perty owners each year neglect their cellars and drainage ways until warned by rubel'iing nature that grava conse quents are impending. The stored vegetation that remains of the winter supply is too ofteu left to decay in moist and noxions corners, and thence to spread doadly exhalations.throughout tha bouse and its uoiguborhool. Tue collectod garbage and miscellaneous domestic refuse that are thrown care lessly into empty boxes and barrels too frequently stay there a day or a week too long, thereby hastening the approach of an epidemic or miking un commonly dangerous the possibility of one. It would be uninteresting to cata logue the many ways in which winter carelessness leaves big and little heap of menacing waste all about the hotne; it is enough for pressnt purposes to call attention to tho general neel of a com plete cleansing, followed by a thorough fumigation and freshening, of calkin, stables, drainage ways, gardens and lavus This nesd, although genoral, is a personal one to each householder. It is not one that can under ordinarv circumstances be reached by municipal ordinance. It is one that appeals dimply to individual enterprise, com mon sense and discretion. It it merely a clever artifica by wtiioii to economize on doctor bills and funeral expenses, and an- effective sid to wholssouvi liv ing. If that is not a sufficient induce ment to n careful and widespread rono- I vation of Scranton s individuil homes, the case will then become one for municipal intervention in behalf of the pnblio health. This is tne time for the good work to begin Start it now. . Lawn aOAtMI huzing should be on the statute books of every state; but more than that, thsy should b in tha minds of all collegians who expjet to pose at gentlemen. A-; a BSTIUtVXB, Mr. Cleveland will never equal one of his trained bird dogt. GOVERNOR MORTON. Three facts bearing upon the R publican outlook in Now York colncldently call for comment. One is Senator Hill's letter to an Amsterdam friond declining to bo a candidate for governor nnd intimating thnt Governor Flower must be renominated. Another is the pointed declaration of the New York Sun, that only a lunatic would seriously propose that the Democratic party of Now York state "shall ontar into this year's can vass with tiio reont recird of tho na tional administration as its solo or chief claim to confidence," And the third is an Admission by ex Vice President Levi P. Morton that if tho Republic ins of the BupirO State dssir t him to b their gubernatorial candidate, ho will be happy to HCOlpt, The tleollon of Mr. Grow by a plu rality of 188,29i when throe months previous a Republican plurality in thi) stalo of 53,00') less was oonsl lrvl amazing end phenomenal sustains the calculations of those who have lately asserted tho existence of a steady ratio of Republican gains throughout tho north, the culmination of which need not be expected until next autumn's congress elections. The average Diin orratic plurality in New York state, nt gubernatorial elections, is lens by many thonsnnds than is the number of m m thrown Idle In single congress districts in that state under the Democratic di penaitlon of soup home tariff reform. Tho election of Mr. Qnlgg to congress lu tho Fourteenth district alone ihowc 1 a popular reversal of more than 10,00 I votes. Tho sam ratio of rsvc-rsal throughout the stats would not only undo tho .10,000 plurality by Which Flower was clectd governor over Faii'ett, but furthermore roll upnR' publicau plurality greater by 100,000 ti'iin that DtmnoraUa tidal wave whloh in 1888, made Governor Grover Clcve land a foregone presidential conclusion. Tho adverse plurality of 100,000 agalnft Maynard, last fall, appl iea also as a warning of what Governor Flower himself may expect, should the bene ficiary of Mayuar.l's crimn and its psr sistont and audacious apologist come a second timo before tho votes of ths indignant citizenship of Now York state. Iu view, then, of theso plain indica tions, it requires no extraordinary penetration to unravel Mr Morton's willingness to be tho Republican stundard bearer in the gubernatorial battle of next November. Hut there remains an even greater reason for this willingness ami that Is the fact that he, alone, of the candidates thus far sug gested enjoys the cordial esteem of both the Piatt and anti Plntt Republi can factions, ns well as of hundreds of Democratic busiuesi meu who would vote for him beoauss of their faith in his fairness, firmues? and shrewd, practical seii3.'. In the symaathy, to, of those Etepoblloatts who thmk that iu ttio substitution of rVbitolaW R'id for tho uble and affablo prosiding officer of the senate of the Fifty-first and Fifty -second congresses, the Minneapolis convention made an inexcusable mis take, Levi P. Morton would have a con siderable political resource. Governor Morton sounds prophetic, THB CONCESSION by Sullivan county Republicans of the judicial nomina tion, in the Fourty-four th judicial dis trict to Wyoming eonn ty, has nstur ully caused more or less discussion of possible Republican candidates again .t .Iu Igo Sitser. Oae gentlemin promi nently mentioned, S. Leroy Tiffany, of Nicholson, asserts that he will make little, if any. effort to secure the noml nation, but would presumably accept, if chosen. Mr. Tiffany studied Latin in t lie Montrose Normal schonbuuder Bon. Alfred Hani, of this city; and Utor, at Franklin aoademy, was a class mate of Supreme Court Justices Mu Collum and Williams. While it is probable that the present nomination will go to either Henry Harding or B. W. Lewis, of Tunkhannock, the selec tion of Mr. Tiff my would bs an equally strong one, calculutjd to bring out the best support of the best oltilSOJ of the district. In huantinu only four of tho 108 now applications for liquor license in Luzerne county this year, Jndgs Rico has proceeded with commendable con servatism, ltutthe logic of his uioler ation In this direction points clearly to i more relent'ess prosecution than ever of tho unlicensed groggeries. No other county in the state exhibits in more glaring hideousness the many and varied crimes that grow out of the il legal sale of intoxicants than does Lu zerne. Tho growth of its court costs snd the crowded condition of its court dockets, already occasioning talk of radical reforms, testify to tho fur reaching effects of this o immon form of law-evasion. Until it can be shown that th rejection of an applicant 'for license means something more than a new "speak easy," any curtailment of the license list will be of doubtful ad vantage to tho community. It is scarcely u-'cassary for frienlt of Gsntral Hastings to deny the trans it trent story that 'he has bsen en leav oring to prevent the instruction of delegates with rsfereOOO to the. lieufen ant governorship. (! 'tieral Hastings is far too old h campaigner, as well us t. n fair a one, to mix up unnecessaii. in other people's business, . MONBOl and QuiHOT avenues just now are beautiful illustrations of how city streets ontrht not, to lie pnvod. JOOKS And Authors.
