IghtMU litinilrtnl yenra old; but it has
its good points.
Thursday Is Flat; Day.
Next Thursday, it should not ho for
gotten, is Flag Dsjr, and the patriotic
citizens will do well to recoKiiizJ it by
a Irtvlih display or Old Glory, lo the
Bcbools appropriate exercise will fit
tintfiy ropplement tho lofty teaebingi
of Memorial Pay, and there will be no
plico where inu shall gather that will
not be tho b?ttor for sum moments of
ntteotire study directed to the princi
ples which that emblem typifies,
It would be especially appropriate if
the meaning ot the 11 ix could be ex
plained, or partially explained, to all
those persons who come here from
other countries eipsottog to see a laud
f onbonoded liceusa, where eacii man
is privileged to do exactly as he
pirates, Liberty is a uuuin doar to
every truo American; and it should
never b abridged. The American Sag,
the anniversary of whose adoption will
doou be commemorated, is peerless
rbovs all otber emblems as the type
and symbol of the freest liberty known
to man, But it is a liberty that
is not ignorant, b sotted, selluii
or bestial. It dues not overstep tho
bi Tinds of wise decorum and of neces
sary self restrain. Ahova all, it does
not insist upon its own exeriso at tiie
expense of i he general aooi; mid it
imver forgets that we liHve. better
checks upon our people than ma-:'sive
standing urmies and higher destinies
for our humble citiz mis than tho abject
helplessness which makes them an un
complaining prey to official extortion
gnd cImss prejudice.
If this lesson could ouce be made
clear, it would do away with many
perplexities in the general outlook. It
would then be no longer necessary to
eoud the armed militia hand in hand
with the employe w.io go:s to taka
work that another has voluntarily
abandoned. Neither would we have
many oases hkii that in Alle
gheny connly where the owner of
a coal tipple recently sued the county
to rSOOVer damages for the loss of that
property at the hands of an unchecked
mob. Tho tuition would teach the su
perior tElcacy of reason, conciliation
and coolness over sheer physical force;
just as it would on the otber hand
teach employtrs to be liberal, humane
and slow to let fall the hand which
would cause u fellow sovereign and
citizen to experience undeserved pain,
AS IHHtBSSION exists and is OSre
fully fostered by demagogues that the
present Sun 'ay law prohibits works of
necessity, This is not true. The Inw
itself is F.peciac enough on that point;
but if it were not, common sense would
yet remain the great court of appeal.
Has Carried Its Point.
The satirical Washington Pot is
hiving a vast deal of fun these days at
the expense of Mr. (listen, the Wilkes
Usrre wire manufacturer, It is forced
fun, and has numerous sng -stions of
insincerity. But it is clvr, for all
that Even Its victim will enjoy a
hearty lsUgh at the artistic manner in
which the Post throws public senti
ment off the scent by inch ludicrous
buffoonery as this:
Air. (install, then anonymous, was atnp
ping at an op-town hotel, Retiring early,
after the manner of virtuous Pennsyl
vania wire makers, be was awakened "in
the first sweet sleep of nili'" by voices in
thnoext room. Of course tbsy were loud
voices. Everybody with tho very smallest
experience of conspirators knows that tho

that persona within forty feet can henr

be rare, because that is conventional, That
iS always done 0U the stage and in dread
ful novels, and naturally it was done m
this occasion; but having made that
concession to the dramatic verities,
the conspirators began to shout at
each other so that the wholo hotel
Oould hear them. The wire maker
lav there, palpitating with emotions too
powerful to be eubdusd and took In the
plot, in its grisly details. Ho knew that
senators were present for their voices be
trayed them, ile knew, also, that agents
of the sugar trust Were there for ho recog
nised that unmistakable accent which,
even through n closed door, betrays the
sugar trust official to the most careless
listener. And so, next morning, he rushed
forth to find a congressman or n corres
pondent to whom he conld impart his in
formation before it exploded and hurst
him Into fragments, He found a congress
man and told his story. Tho congressman
subsequently passed it on to a newspapor
man so the great sugar scandal was
Wo repeat that this is clover, abom
inably clever; and that if tho sugar
scandal rented on no firmer basis, the
Post's sarcasm would suffhn to Inugh
it out of mind. Unhappily for the
honor of the American senate, and also
with dne deference to Mr. (iaston, tho
testimony of the "palpitating Penn
sylvania Wire-maker" is the smallest
item in tho chain of damaging suspic
ion which has coiled Itself about the
nondescript senate edition of the VVI1
Bon bill. We have more than Mr. (las
ton's insomnia in evidence. We have
Secretary Carlisle's opn confession a
confession little weakened by bis de
nial of criminal intent. We have,
in addition, the confession of the sugar
trust's own chief lobbyist, who
was "spending the winter in Washing

nnd because to reside in such a city
was a perfect pleasure to him" a con
fession between whose honied lines

Tho Vindication of Parkhurst.
Ah one of the journals which very
early espoused t o cause of U"v. Dr.
Parkhurst in his tight for a municipal
purification of the metropolis. THE
Tribune views with uncommon pride
the extraordinary shocks which his
heroic initiative hat already won. In
every great battle against Vlco there
have to be martyrs, Dr. Parkhurst
voluntarily assumed this role when, in
response to a call of duty, he milled
his garments by Intimate contact with
tho ovUs ho sought to suppress, and
lor that strong action, necessary to tho
complete accuracy of his testimony,
was derided even by some well-meaning
Christians, as a hynoorite, a note
rlety seeker, a Pharisee and a fool.
The end crowns the work, if it does
not in every instance justify the
method. Thanks to that one bravo
man, who for fifteen years prior to
February, 1892, had lived a retired life
among his friends, pnrishoners and
books, but who, in that month, went
out, single handed, to fijht the hydra
liendsu abuses of a century's develop
ment, wo have, iu scarcely more than
a ecoro of m Jiiths, seen the entire po
lice system of Now York city ar-

have been brought about by some other

of tho man and the method! that did

Tho Progressive American Party,
The organisation of now political
partien la a epcies of gambling that
never lacks fascination, It is usually
a retempting of fate or chance by men
who, while in other org iniz itloni, have
playod and lost. Enmotimes it has
more substantial basis; but these times
are few. It will bo detno'iatr itol in
due season whether the SO-oalled "Pro
(.ressiyo American Party," secretly or-
ganized in Pittsburg last week, shall
have to be enrolled among tho organi
zuions that fate refuses to favor, or
among those whose principles, if not
whose nniiie, become part factors iu
tli" nation's growth.
If tho new dispstobei b correct,
this alleged new national party intends
to draw for voters upon the member
ship o.' four s'cret fraternal orders.
These orders.it is estimated, racluds
300,000 voters in Pennsylvania ulono,
half of whom reside in Allegheny
county. This is of itsolf would con
demn the tff jrt as a hopslsst one, for
the obvious reason that no pirty
founded upon secrecy could hop) for
success in a county whose oitlBash!p
fights its battles in tho open. A plat
form appealing strongly to the common
sense need not bar tho doors of the
room wherein it is debated. When
those doors are barred, the fact at ouce

Another urges the enactment of n pro
tective tariff with u constitutions!
amendment permittingitto be modified
only once in tvventy-fivo years, Tho
present national banking system is de
nounced, federal control of railroads It
urged and a uniform pension Of $3 to
each veteran ia demanded. It will ho
seen that this is a curious hodge podge,
I flavored liberally with socialism; but it
may bo merely conjectural. We prefer
to await the arrivul of more definite
information before worrying about this
particular political infant.
Citizens of Altoona have jnst or
ganiled a law and order league; Wash
ington and Baltimore are to be "Park
hursltd" and even Chicago is insorling
a thin wedge of reform in the shape of
a crusude against the deadly cigarette.
Systematic law defianco is evidently
falling into disrepute.
It is announced that a large delega
tion of Pittsburg business men is pre
paring to go to Washington, to urge
prompt action on the pending tariff
bill. Such a journey would be labor
wasted. This congress doesn't care
what business men think; if it did, it
would instantly adjourn without day
It was to have been expected that

such excellent service at the H. 1'ay
Mills revival in this city. Every voice
has been tested by the conductor, Mr.
Morgan, and nearly 500 has been nd
milted. This chorus has held weekly
rehearsals from the time of the
Mills meetings up to the present time,
and the average attendance bus
been over " 10. It is simply wonderful
what improvement the singers have
made, for it must bo renumbered that
nearly ull the members of this chorus
never before sang iu any choir. It Is
said by those that know that inch
faithfulness on the part of linger in
attending the rehearsals was never
known before in this city. Not only
are the evening rehearsals well at
tended, but the day rehearsals also.
Every afternoon at -1 o'clock about 1G0
young ladies moot for drill march ;',
and two or three of tho choruses ulso
meot. That the production will be a
great success both musically ami
dramatically is certain, nnd it is not
likely that half of the people who will
want to see the performance will be
able to secure seats, since the house
can be secured for only two nights.

music selected for the festival was
classic, and included works lrom Hos
sinni, IJich, Qounod, Warner, Meyer
beer, I'Totow, Mendlettohn and other
lights. It gives us much pleasure to
state that our orchestra sustained
Scranton's musical reputation by some

was the recipient of many flattering
Of tho good work of his men sp"cinl
mention should I'm made of his siring
quartette, consisting of Messrs, Hem
burger, first violin ; Alfred Hippard,
second; B J. P-.uer, viola.and Thomas
Hippard, 'cello, whoso playing much
pleased tae audience. The obligato
work of Professor Hemburgtr on the
violin, to Mm". Blauvelt'l rendition of
"Arietta do RomtO et Juliette," by
Qounod, was n masterly piece of work,
and called forth great applause. The
obligato ou the 'cello by T. Hippard lo
Miss Edmunds in her singing "Alls
Stella Confidante," wat faultlessly ren
dered, as was also the obligato ou the
flute bv Theodore Bausobman to Miss
Edmunds' rendition in "Ojd's Acre,"
by Jules Jordan.

with the work of tho ( rchestra nnd
