TIIE SCKANTON TKIBTOE-THURSDAT MORNING, JUNE 7, 1894.
Id this age of multiplying trolleys it
may not be wituont interest to Soran
toniaus to note tbo development in
homo of the larger cities of the belief
that undentrouud iron pipes are in
juriously allected by thorn. The first
discovery of any importance of this
tendency of lost electricity to destroy
gas and water mains whs made in Jr
ey City a few weeks ago, according to
'Holland," and it was found that pipes
whioh were presumed to be practically
impervious to chemical influence were
eaten through, and in many places cou
jiletidy dfstroyod, by tho iuflaence of
i-onio corroding chemical. Experiments
have been made recently with other
metals brought in contact with thes
i-ul -surfacj currents, and it has bten
ilemoustrated that they are Immedi
ately Hinl severely affected by them. In
r-oms of the cities of the west, especi
ally Omaha, these injurious lnntumoai
liavo ueeii found to be very costly. Io
Omaha, it is sa'.d, that the damage
done to some of the mains already rep
resents a loss of some twenty thous
and dollars. The scientists are
now hard at work trying to
devise some means for overcom
ing this str.ince and wholly unex
pected development following tho DS6
of the trolloy system. Some of them
lwlieto that it cannot be overcome, un
".ess the metallic circuit is m;ide com
plete, as it is in tho caw of lor.? dist
ance tolephuues. Of course, this would
considerably iritroiise the expense of
the plant, and yet it may be that
municipalities will fnsl compellol to
insist upon it us a condition of the con
tinuance of characters. They certainly
will, unless some other means can bo
discovered for overeoming the trouble.
This danger is now so thoroughly
recognized and well understood that
the scientists have givtn a name to it,
calling it electrolyse.
Activitv in tho anthracite trade is
confined just at prvseut very largely to
ihe filling of orders received prior to

Creditors of the Pennsylvania and
"Maryland steol companies have practi
oally reached an agreement looking
;oward a speedy reorganization'. Th
;ilan embodies two nuthods of settle
ment. One is known as tho auiicablo
jlan and tha other the judicial reor
ganization plan. Tho first plan con
templates a settlement between the
creuitors uud tho company on a mutu-
illy accepted basis. Should this fail
the second plan would throw the prop
erties into court an 1 a settlement made
jy n judicial sale under foreclosure of
existing mortgage and liens. Tho ami
cable plan provides that the companies
;ihnll pay to the creditors 40 per cent. of
ho indebtedness in cash, C'J per OtQtin
liondi on tho joint properties of the
Maryland and Pennsylvania companios
.ind 15 per cent, in the stock or scrip of
"he Pennsylvania company. It Is also
provided that the stockholders of the
.Pennsylvania company, whose capital
is $4,700,000, shall surrender one-half
of their common stock holding. Of
it. e amount surrendered 1, 500.000 is
o be returned to the subscribers of n
-ike amount of preferred stock, to be
noll nt par. If this amioablo plun can
.iot be carried out on the basis as out
lined, both properties are to be sold.
TBey would then bs purchased Dy the
creditors subject to existing indebt
edness as regards bonds and common
ptock. In the event of purchase under
he judicial reorganizttion plan the
creditors agree to increase the capital
01,500,000 by th issuance of preferred
i-tock. This additional capital is to bo
used in operating the works of the
companies. It is generally agreed Dy
the creditors that the companies will
accept tho amicablo adjustment plan
whenever it Is taken up for considera
tion by the stockholders.
Lunch house 'keepers along the line
of tb Lehigh Valley railroad are dis
satisfied with the new excursion lunch
car which has been adopted by Passen
ger Agent Lee as a feature of the
road's summer passenger Irnflic. They
claims it evinces contempt for their
tmsiuess. Nevertheless, the idea meets
with much approval among travelers.
The appointment of J. Lowrie Bell
ns general traffic manager of the Jer
ney Central is regarded in railway cir
cles as presagine a spirited campaign
oetween that Hue and the competing
systems that crowd it for tonnage. Of
recent months, the monthly statements
of earnings by the Central have indi
cated ths existence of more determined
competition in the traffic department
than had been encountered in previous
years. The Central's business has in
creased, but tho margin of profit, or
the "net," as it is called, has shown
that the other roads were not resting
on their oars. Mr. Bell's thorough
mastery of this department and his
widespread popularity pointed to him
us the exact man for the position; and
ne was therefore ssenred. It is to be
expected that he will "make things
In denying the reported sale of the
Carbondale Traction company to the
Carbondale and Forest City 'fraction
company, the Lender takes occasion to
remark that Judge Wilbur P. Sadler,
of Carlisle, the largest Stock holder in
the Carbondale Traction company, is
much averse to parting with his hold
ings, even undor tempting oircuin
atances. The road, it adds, is paying
handsomely. In spite of the tie-up dur
ing the first winter caused bv the heavy
snow storms the road carried 700.000
pssssngers during the first year sur
prise not only to the general public
but to the men who invested their
money in the enterprise, who would
have been satisfied ff the first year's in
come had been sufficient to cover tho
ixpenses. With so fine a showing it is
reasonable to expect that in the course
of a few years the line of the Carbon
dale Traction compauy will be one of
the -most valuable franchises in the
state. The Forest City people.it Is Mid,
are yet talking over the "project of a
belt line, to connect with Crystal lake,
Dnndnff and other points.
The statement is made that it costs
only about $25 to make tho change in
an engine so as to fit it f6r burning oil.
This ohsnuo consists simply in putting
in an oil tank in the space now used
for coal. The change can be made in
less than a day. Bituminous coal is
deoidediy the safest and cheapest fuel
for railroad engines in communities
where anthracite is not available, as in
the west. But the strikers have f oread
the price of bituminous up about 100
percent If oil is substituted, a tank
sufficient to carry about seventy gal
lon of oil will be filled on each engine.
This amount of oil will run an engiuo
atout 150 miles.

ONE LETTER AND A REPLY.
Editor or Tur VttBumi
Dear, tin Wo thought we had gotten
through with explanations of our position,
SO far as WO are concerned in tho "Sabbath
crusade, but the communication by the
Kev. James MrLood in yesterday s issue or
Tub Timn'.fK cii'.ls forth further remarks
from ns on tho subject. The reverend
gentleman says: "ilcUurruh & Thomas
have a line let or bru.she.innd combs, per
fumeryund cigars, ho ips and candies, and a
host of other commodities in edditiou to
soda water, which would require uviolont
stretch of the Imagination to call drags."
Wo agree with tho reverend gentleman
that it would, indeed, require a violent
stretch of the imagination to class the
tilings enumerated as drugs, but as "a
collar is not always evid-nco of a shirt"
it need not tollow because we carry cigars,
soaps, perfumery, brushes, etc., in stock
thai we tell these articles on Miuuay.
Prom tho beginning of this crus
ndo we have studiously endeavored
to avoid th criticism inferred by
Rev. Dr. JleliCcds communication
by refusing to sell cigars, perfumes,
brushes soaps aud other ariicles that ap
parently coino under tho head of non
necessities. We conscientiously contend
that soda water has become n necessity,
just as much so as tea, coffee or mill;, and
it simply remains lor iuh court loucciuo
whether we ore justihed in so main
taining. We assure tho public again
it wo aro violating a statute or thisom
monwoalth, wo aro doing so unconsciously
and unintentionally, and no one will bo
more ready to comply with its reipure
meats. We do not infer, should tho court
sustain us in the stand we have taken iu
relation to the snlo of soda water, that it
carries with It the right to soli on Sunday
things that may construed as non-necessi
ties. Yours respect lolly,
McQaurah & Thomas.
Dit m'lkod'h reply.
liy the courtesy of Messrs. McUarrah t
J. homes, the above letter was sent to me,
mat my reply muzm accompany it.
If their former letter, which I ventured
to criticise, bud boon as specilio as this
one, there would have been no occasion
for any misunderstanding.
The point I made is now conceded, name
ly: A drug store.il open on Sunday, should
pe used, exclusively, for tho sine of drugs.
Grocers lteop a good many ariicles which,
to say the least, are ns much necessities as
soda-water. Theroforo grocers should
open their stores tor tho salo of such ne
cessities. Lngor beer is, Jin the
judgment ot n good many of
our fellow-citizens a far greater
necessity than soda water and it is certainly
ns much a drug. Therefore, saloons ought
to ho open on Sunday for tho sale of luger
beer. Tho truth Is that thus- who run
nr;da fountains on Sunday whether they
bo grocers or confectioners or Cigar dealers
(1 have soon a soda foiiutniu in a rigor
store) run thtm for the profit that is io
thrt truffle. If tho businons wore unprofit

ONE IDEA Or" JUSTICE.
Editor of The Tririnb:
Dbar Sin Inasmuch as your columns
have been open to the discussion ot tho
Sunday question, I take tho liberty of tree-"
passing upon your Bpaco with tho hopo
that my views on the subject may direct
thought in an hitherto unoxpected chan
nel. It is unnecessary to recite tho statute
under discussion. Suftice it to say that
there is n law on our statute books which
makes it n misdemeanor to transact any
worldly business on Sunday, and thnt to
day in the city of Scrauton u large number
of men who are tho lending dignitaries of
tho churches nro zoslously engaged i:i the
prosecution of all men violating this law.
The Htatute is on tho books nnd as long ns
it is there those officers empowered by tho
people to administer the laws have tho
right to nrosecuto offending purties. When
a law becomes obnoxious to a ponplo either
it is repealed or it fulls into InoOUdUS de
suetude, Whether or not this law has 08
como Intolerable to the ample at large is
not at present tho subject of dircus-iou.
In fact it requires but hltlo nrgument to
dispose of that proposition, and tho mo
ment a definition of justice iB reached tho
solution bus been found.
The first question involved in the discus
sion of this matter is: Are the men who are
devout believers in the scripures commit
ting an error in Interesting themselves in
the prosecution of those found violating
this ISwf To my mind the nnswer should
beiutbe affirmative, and so groat is the
error aud it is fraught with conaequ-mces
so serions that it is impossible to under
estimate then. Intolerance aud fanatic
ism are tho si t roads to ruin
that any religion can adopt. This
fact is so potent that it is a shear waste of
time to multiply instances illustrating it.
Lot ns not attempt to lay the Battering
unction to our souls that wo live in au ago
of tolerance. There is only a difference iu
degree and not in kind between tbo spirit
of Torquemsdo and that of a man of to
day who insists that all men should think
as ho does. Religion is always inclined at
the outset to use mural suasion to bring a
man to its views, but when that fails,
force is Invariably used. How is it poss
ible to persuade a man to ndopt the religi
ous views of another by inculcating iu
him as a first lesson that it is absolutely
essential to Die force to compel a man to
believe with him. Let it bo understood
that my remarks aro wholly impersonal
and are made without rancour. To mo it
is a constant sourcn of amazement to seo
how men nro constantly disregarding tho
ultimate results and look only to tho prox
imate benefit of and act.
"In order thut wo may more fully com
prebend the situation as it is, let us for
the sake of illustration shift tho aceno of
action from ScrantOU to some romote In
land in the Pacific. Let us imagine that
there is a little settlement there number
ing forty souls thirty-nine strict believ
ers in the Scriptures, and one uitbrliover.
The unbeliever is tho proprietor of a small
-hep, uud on the first Sunday spent by th
little settlement lu its now home, tho un
believer's place is open lor business. The
tblrty-nine Delleter aro indignant, uud
waiting upon their deluded brother insist
that ho abstain from secular wont on that
day. If the unbeliever iu reply to tbnt
iuforms the committee that lie emigrated
to that islaud laboring undor the impres
sion that his belief in a Qod would not be
questioned, he will receive au answer
which tho fabled acumen of n Philadelphia
lawyer would bo unable to interpret. Tho
Una! result would bs that tho thirty-nine
would insist that the one should not shock
them with his open di leg ird ot the
Ssbbntb, and tbo one being in the
minority, would obey. Celery: Is the method
ud to bring tho stray and" erring lamb to
the flock a good one I In principlo, that is
tho fitu afion today in Scrauton and when
the action of nino oud thirty is denomi
nated ns harsh aud intolerant, the re
sult is virtuous indignation. Let us re
tort to our island for a moment. A change
has tnken place. Attracted by reports of
religions tolerance three hundred seventh
day adventlsta have arrived, Saturday
Comes and tho f rty original settlers nriso
With the SUn nnd proceed with their toil.
The new arrivals gate at each other with
amazomeut. Unheard of sacrallge. Toil
ing on the Sabbnth. The matter must be
attended to. Tho thro e huudred men
form a commitfoo and wait upou the forty
unbelieving settlers. They must not dese
crate the Sabbath, and tho reason urg.nl is
a most substantial one. It offends tho eye
of tho three huudred seventh day adven
lists. Can yon hear the thirty-nine men
who gloried iu compelling the one unbe
liever to outwnrdy couform to thoir views
emit a shout, intolerance ! Fuuatacism 1
Would you deny us the right to worship
Qod ou tho day wo see lit.
It was intolerance of this kind that lost
to Israel the spiritual rulership of the
world. It was intolerance of this Kind that
founded ii Spanish inquisition, and it is
intolerance of toil kiud that causes men,
aye, oven clergymen, to band themselves
together masking their true intontion un
der tho hypocritical cloak of patriotism,
calling themselves tho American Protec
tive association. The rules of absolute
ethics aro such that is impossible for man
in his pro.'out imperii ct nature to attain
fiiicliamoial attitude. Even justice is
hardly within tho grasp of human com
prehension, tut some idea of justice is lu
heront in most men, a priori, as it wore.
The founders of this government made a
noble effort to provide for justice. No
man has a right to interfere with tho ac
tions of nnotuer when the actious of the
other aro not in any manner limiting tho
rights of the iuterferer. The right to wor
ship l iod does not carry with it tho right
to compel others to do the same or to com
pel others to refrain from doing anything
but watch the worshipper in tho exercise
of his right. Tiuo religion does not con
template tho conversion of men by force.
How much more consistent would it be
with the teachings of the founder of
Cbistlanity tor men Instead of banding
themselves tot-ether for tho ouroo if

morul suasion, and if, nfter strenuous and
repeated efforts, that cannot bo accom
plished to leave them "more in sorrow
than iu anger" and to iutorcede with Uod
iu behalf of thoirerrina brothers. Religion
suggests this. Justice demands that no
man bo interfered with who is not inter
fering with tho rights of another. Tuese,
I believe, nro wholesome truths. They may
hurt tho feelings of some, but justice is in
oxorable, and lor her sake 1 ask every man
to lend his aid to repeal a law which is a
travesty on her, Nathan Vidavkr.
