SCRANTON. MAY 5, 1894.
Citizen COXBY snrreudered to the
law under proteit ami when all it over
will be ready, no donbt, to take hii
place with Corbett, Sullivan and the
other great actors.
Senator Quay's Speech.
It ia aunonnt'Hil that the aerial ipeeeh
Which Senator Quay ii now deliverins;
at odd interval on the tariff will be
the innst volnininoni and comnrtfhen
live treatment of thii mbject from the
protection standpoint aver made in thict
country. It will, it is said, mass to
gether a greater quantity of statistics
Bnd a larger variety of digested argu
ment, with evidence, than has ever
before been presented in a single dis
cnasion of this theme. In Its speclnl
field it will be what the recent speech
of Senator Jones, of Nevada, whs with
reference to the free coinage side of
the curreucy qnestion. This spoeoh, it
will be recalled, filled 44S octavo pages
In small type, exrltnire of an elaborate
index, and comprised what is said to be
the most csrefully compiled handbook
of the free silver theory today in print.
Very naturally the prospeet of hav
ing sncli a businesslike treatment of
protection presented to the OOOHttJ
does uot please the Democratic theor
ists, who are endeavoring by every dr
vicu permissible under the senate rules
to "choke Senator Quay off." They
re ridiculing the speaker because of
bis alleged lack of eloquence and hound
ing Mm for bis persistence, but the tin
milled member from Heaver pursues
the even tenor of his wiy, sustained by
the knowledge that though he be DO
pretentious orstor, h has the happy
fatuity of stating a purely btttiMM
question in a plain light that admits ol
no free trade legerdemain If as an
incident to the delivery of his spe.eii
he should retard the final vote on the
so-called Wilson bill until many of it
objectionable features liav been modi
fied in obedienco to emphatic popular
demands, it will not be a bad consum
mation Wliile it would have been letter for
the Uepublican senators, possibly, to
have faced the Democrats at the very
beginning with a challenge to pass the
bill or finally concede its defeat, the
new turn which the tariff discussion
has recently tsken in the senate wi x !
leetn to hold out hope that if a vote
can now be delayed for a few week,
the whole miserable free trade scheme
will be incontinently abandoned by its
sponsers' in favor of a bill which will
in effect be tno McKinley tariff re
vised and renamed It is apparently
Senator Quay's purpose, in addition P
presenting a ciear ami lucid digest of
the entire tariff question, to so lime
his remarks as to btlp along the good
work of iJemocratic conversion. W
assume ihat he has reason to believe
the Wilson bill can in this manner lie
effectually scotened, and upon this as
uuiptinn can cordially indorse his pur
pose. Otherwise, a vote ilioald to
reached aud tn uncertainty ended as
sooo at possible,
It WOULD be a public blessing if all
our county and state cooru ex-rcised
the wholesome authority over evil
doers that has come to be expected
from the federal district tribunals.
Tiif. Flnkkai, Directors' Association
of Pennsylvania which met hero last
year, was in snion Thursday tt Phil
adelphia. One of the subjects dis
cussed by its president, ft Frank Kirk,
was the growth of lbs II iwer nuisance
at funeral., and renewed argument w.s
advanced in favor of greatly diminish
log the nmnber, rest and variety of
floral trlbuUs. This reform, like cre
mation, will be of slow growth, but It
seems to be a wise one. It is at least
possible to urge the lavishing of anch
tokens of esteem during the life time
of its beneficiary, an innovation which
would make things happier all 'round
Nonsense Grown Dangerous.
Hepresentative H, the I'opnlist
Itatesman from Nebraska who has jnst
asked congress to "devise means for the
smployment of the Idle men of tho
country, restrict immigration, start np
the mines, increaso the currency and
prohibit the issuing of interest bearing
bonds without the authority of oon
greas,"isa remarkably modest man,
lite he would have included in his bill
a request for congress to abolish the
sincn bug, formulate a curative lymph
for tubercnlosis, compound a process
for the artificial manufacture of dia
monds, ordain perpetual motion and
rectify the eccentricities of the spheres.
The one sot of requests is no more er
ratic than the other, Only two of
Mr. Bell's ideas come within tbe proper
functions of government, that relating
to immigration and that to tbe cur
rency. The extraordinary prevalence at this
time of utterly false and quixotic con
eeptions as to what popular govern
ment is or should be does not speak
well for tbe thoroughness of our popu
lar ednestion In civics. One of the beet
leflnitions of the true functions of gov
irnment tbat we have recently seen
tomes from Colonel Robert O. Inger
loll, who is certainly sound in his pol
itical economy whatever may be thought
is to bis theology. Interviewed with
reference to Coxeyism, he said:
These armies havo been produced, I pre
rume, first, by hard times, by lack of work,
mt secondly and mostly by a false idea of
tbe government. These people imagine
ihat the government is under obligation
to do something for them. They think
the, government is a source of wealth; tbat
Ihe government can give money and em
ployment. Now, the fact is the govern
ment cannot support the people. The peo
ple have to support tho government. The
overnment Is a pauper and lives only on
ihe labor of otber collects taxes for
Its support, not for the support of the peo
ple, and the various officers that are
llected and appointed have certaiD duties
to perform for tbe people, for which they
are paid, and the money with which they
are paid comes from taxation.
It ought to be entirely unnecessary
to take such pains in tbe eluoidation of
self evident truths. Citizens ought ev
erywhere to have these fundamental
principles inculcated in them, from
bovhood up. No man ought to be per
mitted to have a voice or a vote in the
regulation of government who does not
have an approximately lucid idea of
what government it. Yet it is very ev
ident these days tbat ignorance iu this
particular is widespread, if not gen
eral. The reeent long era of political
pandering to prejudice and illiteracy
has culminated, it seems, in the pre
dicted chaos, which should no sooner
be ended than steps should be instituted
to prevent a recurrence of similar epi
sodes in the future. The ignorant man
and the venal man must be eliminated
from our electorate. We have, as a
nation, fiddled and danced to the kind
ling fires of our own possible destruc
tion; and now tbat we begin to per
ceive the danger it Is tirao to stop fid
dling and get down tostern buaiuedi.
General Harrison need not worry
yet over newspaper rumors with re
spect to 1896. In tbe dull days of sum
mer, the space fillers of the metropol
itan press will probably have a uood
deal to sav about his future, but It will
not affect things one way or the other.
The next presidential nominee of the
Uepublican party will be chosen in the
regular way, in obedience to the clear
wishes of the massos of the party, and
will be elected tecanse the people will
want him.
Definition of Prize Fights.
In a community where much atten
tion is devoted to prize lighting ami
much more to sparring for amti-n-ment's
sake, it is interesting to have
clearly fixed in one's mind the exact
legal difference between the two
Judge Uordon, of Philadelphia, in
charging a jury, recently defined th
law in tbe following explicit fashion
"A prize fight is any fiatic eneotinter
in which violent blows are ttruck for
the purpose of reducing tbe physic il
strength of the opponent, to injure or
harm him In anr way by such forte,
provided thsy were to receive any ps
cuniary benefit or any money was
wagered on the result either by them
selvut or other parties, or if any oth r
persons were to lie ben, fitted by the
Outsat If tht encounter w is one In
which mero skill, mre dexterity was
employed and wiiat was to be doiit w it
not harmful, meiely light tone ties, and was to be DO money wagered on
the rvtult and they worn to reoeiva no
ben. fit, it would not be a violation of
the law."
It it to be regretted that Judge Gor
don did not elaborate hit meaning in
the nte of tbe phrase 'pecnnlarv bene
fit." If thereby he purposed to include
medals and tropin!, at well as fixed
stunt in actn.l cath, it It obviout fiat
his definition would iirsafter outlaw
all such tournament! as that recently
given in tint city by the Kiceltior A'h
letic elnb, in which "violent blowt"
Were certainly "atiurk f r the j nr:
of reducing the physical strength of Ihe
opponent" Some of tbe bouts in thii
tournament bordered to near to brutal
ity, ss that term ia commonly under
stood, that it would not bt worth wlr.le
trying to dittiugulth the difference.
It seema to ua that according to Judge
Gordon's ruling these vntertai in t
are hereafter placed clearly outside the

Mr. Jones-Smith didn't make an at
tempt to go to St. John's Field Thura
day afternoon and tays he doesn't think
be will attend to any more this season.
Isn't it horrldT You atk if I go to see
tbe gsme. No, thank you. I see
enough of the lunacy of man in the of
fice. I have no desire to behold Mr
Jones-Smith, and all the other official
high mightinesses divested of every
shred of dignity they possets dnring
business hours, and to have my illu
sions as to their importance dispelled
by hearing them yell like Comanches
when there isn't anything to yell about
It is base ball that helps to nuke the
hard times harder. I've been studying
it all out. There are a ntainber of
women of my acquaintance who have
had to cut down with their loe cream
sodas and new gloves on account of the
money their husbands spend nt base
ball games. It's a sin.
It must be n dreadful thing to be n
man on account of the bnrbering he
must undergo. I've never thought
much about the matter until lately,
since that building on the corner of
Washington avenue and Spruce street
took to spreading all over the tbe side
walk. Hitherto, when ebanee and con
venienee has led mn punt n barber shop,
I've always lookod industriously the
otber way; it seemed so immodett to
gaze in at the gbattly row of men
with their heads hanging off backward
at a more or less perilous angle, and
with themselves in a more or lest state
of dishabille; but now that glass bona
on Washington avenue really obtrudes
Itself so importunately upon the passer
by that perforce one mutt look in,
whether oue would or not. And, deal
me, bow tbe custom teems to growl
Men are very vain creatures Just note
the eagerness with which they flock
to that particular shop to get
shaved and to lay themselves like
o many corpses before the view of tbe
populate. How In the world a
mail can serenely sent himself
and appear to fall asleep, per
chance to dream, while a person of
whose ancestry and hereditary traitt,
the victim must of necessity be ignor
ant, stands before him brandishing a
glittering weapon in dangerout prox
imity to hit throat, is more than we
women can comprehend. Suppose you
are a millionaire and the barber by
trade is an anarchist in belief, and sup
pose he it in favor of equalizing mat
i ere. which in his mlud seem to be
awry what ii to hinder him from be
ginning on you? Did it ever occur to
yon what a fortunate tblng it it for so
ciety that barbers do not seem to bo
imbued with socialistic sentiments
and that tbey are seniible, quiet
folk who do not go around
stirring up reforms iu which
blood and razors are prominent fea
ttiies? Not quiet, did you savt Ob,
well then, talking doesn't smack of
bombs and Walking delegates. How
ever, 1 do believe that barber shops
should be provided With scream like
salouns, so tbat we can't see the pro
cess that makes our adorers beautiful,
any more than the one which makes
them silly. It's a great shock to a fas
tidious girl when she carelessly glances
in at the window to there behold a
listless, costless, collarless, wild look
ing individual engaged in the procett
of being biikily powdered as to his
viaairo aud perfamed at to hit hair -and
to realize that he it her pet ad
