TBEBE may he a distinction between
what The Tribune attributed to Mr.
Dickie ill hit recent Third 1'arty speech
in this city, and what Mr,
a letter printed elsewhere, says he said,
but there is comparatively little real
difference. In any event, Mr. Dickie
WSI obviously talking for effect.
One Neighbor's Delusions.
The curious genius who misdirects
the political utterances of tho Wilkes
Tarre Record ia again evincing his
inherent propensity to make that oth
erwise estimable' p iper supremely rid
icnlooa The Tribune approaches nny
discussion of this propensity with feo'
ngs in which pity for tho putative
"god father" of tho Record's political
opinions is tempered by sympathy for
those allied with him in the relations
it lit r of CO-pnrtner or employe. We
have long since grown Inured to the
hilarity which this man's perennial
nsslnlnity lends to any enterprise, from
participation in which lie cannot by
some means be barred, and ordinarily
a smile is his only tok m of dismissal.
Hut when the exhilaration of bis ig
norance impels him to utter untruths
about Tbe Tribune we feel constrained
;o say a few words, "from the
shoulder." Referring to this journal,
be says it "was conoeived, bom and
reared for the ipecial purpose of sow
ing the K'eds of discord in the ranks of
the Republican party of Lackawanna,
'downing Joe Scranton' and elevating
one of its millionaire godfotbers." if
it were wortli while to take the Record's
political utterances seriously, we should
any that in this assertion it plainly.
Bat ly and deliberately lied, Weehould
add, by way of "(i nnctnring" the fore-
;oin;; hallucination, that The Tribune
was founded as a legitimate business
enterprise, for the singla purpose of
printing the best daily newspaper in
Lackawanna county; and that, so for
from towing ".-eeds of discord" among
Lackawanna Republicans, it has, since
it got (airly going, bad tbe supreme
felicity to look hack upon an unbroken
lift of Republican victories, where once
the record Was painfully rigged and
irregular. This may be, of course,
mi rely a coincidence ; but if it be, it is
not, to the average mind, snggastive
of implanted discord.
The Record follows this falsehood up
with a succession of similar falsehoods
touching what it conc-ives to be the
relations between the proprietary in
terests of this paper and those of its
Republic m morning contemporary. It
,s a tradition in Luzerne county that
thc particular fraction of the Rocord to
which wo are now addressing ourselves
never looked at any fact in connection
with politics without getting things
mixed. The tradition, in this instance,
is certainly verified. TOI Tribune
.-tanua today, after an existence of less
then three years, fairly and firmly
planted on an ondnrinc business
basis. It asks no odds of any competi
tor, and in tbe fair fights of business
competition it is prepared to give no
qnarter. It proposes to print the news,
sttond to its own business and knock
very pompons i 1 lot's head that sticks
op to do it a wanton injury.
If (hern are any further points con
cerning which tbe R-cord drsireg en
lightenment, we are at its service. It
is a real pleasure to accommodate so
diverting a contemporary, to which
wo perhaps proffer an injustice
when we even momentarily treat it
If THESE he an impression in any
quarter that tho Eoramton Tribune is
not standing fairly and squarely on its
own merits as a livo newspaper, whose
business support nnd influence ero con
stantly growing, it had better ba dis
missed before summer sets in,
Thc Concern of All.
Tho estemnd Wilkes llirre News
Dealer can scarcely have woighed the
full significance of its words when it
intimates that tho residents of one
county have no proper concern in the
political activities of at'othor. If to
'jffer well-intentionod ndvico without
expense be "a piece of impertinence"
we should dislike to bo assigned to
compute the number of pieces of im
portinenco stocked np by tbe sprightly
Nows-D.-aler In its ever readable com
ments on Democratic politics in Lacka
wanna. Infallibility is not claimod
for any resident of either county; but
it ofton occurs that nn observer of
events who lives beyond the influences
of local prejudice or other causes of a
warped vision can discern features in a
distant political fight not yisiblo to
those immediately engaged. This is
particularly true when politics takeB
on the opera bonffe aspocts invariably
imparted to the politics of Luzoroe by
certain Wilkes-Iiarre political writers
with whom tho News-Dealer itsolf has
many times bad rare sport.
Recurring, however, to the original
poiut, we beg to dissent from the prop
osition that a Rpuldican constitueuey
in Scranton, for instance, has no in
terest in, let us say, a congressional
fight in Wilkes-Barre. It occurs to us
that any turn of events which should
seem to decrease tho chance of electing
in either placo a first-class champion of
protection and honest money ought to
be a legitimate topic for discussion, not
only in the other place, but In all places
where Democratic incapacity, dishon
esty or seotioual prejudice has precipi-
ilnctiona iind decreased employment

Next Monday morning wo shall bi
gin the publication of a new serial
stoiy of uncommon interest, bearing
the above unique title. Not since THE
TRIBUNE gave to its readers thst telling
masterpiece of Dr. A. Conan Doyle.
'A Study ia Scarlet," hag there ap
peared a romance wbioh in our judg
ment equals that whesi publication
wo now take pleasure in announcing.
It is a complex story of a most peculiar
mystery, involving crime, passion, oc
cult mental processes, deduotive reas
oning of mark"d aCUtensss and the de
scriptive quality to a rare degree, the
whole so deftly interwoven in tho
fiction's narrative as to form a most
effective work.
Ii is sai l of tho author of this re
markable story, Charles Howard Mod.
tague, that he is tbe lineal,
so far as literary kinship it cone irnel ,
of thnt Inimitable muster of plot and
dramatic incident, Wllkle Collins.
That this is no exaggerated eulogy will
be aj p irent when the reader bus fin
ished perusing "Tho F.ic of Rosen
fel." Wo have chos in this particular
novel for serial publication only after a
careful weighing of the merits of many
manuscripts. We are con fi lent that
our preference is not misplaced. Re
member, the opening chapter will np
pear next Monday morning, to be fol
lowed by dally instalments, with the
exception of Saturdays, until com
pleted. Do not miss this real literary
PITTSBURG, THROUGH onn of its news
papers, declares magnanimously that
it doesn't want tbe Republican state
convention to meet there, because it
has no adequate ball to j ut it in. In
that event, let's siy Philadelphia and
Scranton. Come to think of it, Pitt: -burg
is a triil slow.
Mr. Archer's Resignation.
The minora that have circulated
freely for tli nr-st few weeks relative
to a jomilde tciminatiou of General
Manager II. H. Amber's official rela
tion with tho Scranton Traction com
pany proved yesterday to havo bad
real foundation in fact. His resigna
tion, proffered heosuse of ill-health,
tins, as may be seen by a news article
elsewhere, been accepted by the owners
of the local trolley system; and the
changes and readjustments incident to
Mr.Archer'o retirement have baen, tea
certain extout, airoaay ueoiaea upon.
Mr. Archer, during bis brief rosl
deuce in Scranton, occupied a singu
larly onerous, ixacting and delicate
position. It is probably not too much
io say that no other railway manager
in the United States had a greater va
riety of complicated details to deal
with. In the degree of mental appli
cation required, if not In the magni
tude of the sc lie of bis operations, Mr.
Archer labored under a strain that few
men can realize We believe it will be
the general verdict of Scrantonians
that, in view of all these circum
stances, no lef-s than in consid
eration of tbe general monetary
stiiugency which befell during
his administration, Mr. Archer
acquitted himself with uncommon
success. Ho was liberal in his policy
and lavish in bis expenditures npou
plant and (qnlpmont; but he bad cor
rectly gauged the wishes nnd tho tem
per of the community with which he
was dealing; and h) knew that small
methods, pursuod in a pinoh-psnny
foshion, would not be tolerated. The
notable quickening of local trauo ac
tivities that was being experienced up
to the time of the panic of one year ngo
was due in no small degree to Mr.
Archer's fxpansivo policy in reaching
out for snrbnrban connections, and in
adding rapidly to the iofl wing chan
nel of quick and cheap Intercommuni
cation. Wo shall extend to Mr. Archer's suc
cessor, whan he shall bo permanently
domiciled among us, the same greeting
that was accorded the retiring man
ager. Wo shall judge him by bis
works. If they bo liberal, generous
and in touch with the public Spirited
ncss of this rapidly growing city and
community, ha will receive the praise
that will justly bo his due, If not, ho
will bear things that will not be pleas
ant. The people of Scranton have ex
tended to tbe Scrantou Traction com
pany, npou the plodg of a good and
cheap service, privileges worth many
buudrods of thousands of dollars, That
service they propose to havo. If Mr.
Archer's successor Is u man equal to
the emergency, it will preveut a iarge
mount of friction and unpleasant
ness. American inoknuity has just evolved
a scheme for tbe creation of new lauds
when this old enrth go's overcrowded.
If it isn't novel, it's close to it. The
inventor is a New Yorker named Coen.
Inasmuch as there isn't a pleasure
island in the Atlantic bandy to the
metropolis, he proposes to make
one. He will Htaud it ou stilts,
so to speak, and ventilate it by
robust breezes lured from the
vrv dren. The inland, to be called
i Atlantis, will stand on piles mads of
steel cylinders f grnt diameter, filled
with cement. Upon thosa piers a fbor-
Ing will be laid and a series of pavilions
j constructed with roof gardens, band
stands, promonadeH and every other
means of pleasiire-aeckiug approved by
i fastidious modern tastes. Atlantis, on
paper, will readily accomodate 5t),000
i persons; and inasmuch as to trot H on
stilts will cost only f?3,000,000 there's
1 yet a chance for the schema to ma
! terialize.
