Law DEFIANCE rests Itl eiime on a
slander found ution when it offers an

The Strike Settled.
The ttrmioatioo of th bitnminous
miners' triko lust evening, ai a remit
of the C'olumbua conference, is n vic
tory for the pnbllc of greater liynifi
cance than it is lor eitiior of the par
ticipant, We in the anthracite region
can bhv this with the jjro.iter sincerity,
iuustnncii as the continuance of the
B'riUe would in bpiuo directions have
r edounded to our profit. Such an in
tereit, however, is infinitely surpassed
hy tho ifaueral lutertsts of the public,
Including the hundred of thousands of
woikmen in all pirtaol the country,
Who, by the strike had been thrown,
nt a time of already flerions depression,
Into Involuntary idleness and want.
Considering the strike's magnende
bu 1 complexity, it is apparently fair to
confecs that it has been managed with
unu'uul success. But it is a success
that ut beat is qi:ivalent to, if not
worse than failure, The sceni of vio
lence and bloodshed that have attendtd
it might easily have been worse; but
such as tiiey wore, they have afforded
n renewed eviilenco of tile utter bar
beritv of the strike as a wenpon of eco
nomic warfare; and have, it is to be
hoped, greatly accelerated the day
when all sucii differenoii shall be
beard in the eourli of arbitration rubor
than in the camp, the hospital, the
alm-homi sod the prion.
V" do not wish to imply by these re
marks that we regard tbo ni"jrity of
the nm tbemrelvea as deserTiu;; of tho
chief censure ,.f tho unhappy incidents
that iiave characterized the progress of
their strike. Hack of all that they have
done, behind all their errors and, in
some instnncos.crims-'.cau be discorned
tho crowning atrocity of an economic
policy that is indefeasible. Let it- bo
clearlv understood that there is, among
iust men, no sympathy with and no
tolerance for tile greed of those cap
tains of capital and industry who have
been responsible for the introduction
Into this country, under contract,
of large numbers of ignorant work
men from countries where only the
Wrong nrm of the militia is able t0
maintain a semblance of law and
order. The honest, self-supporting
and law-ubtding foreigner will always
n-celve a welcome in this country, no
matter whence he comes to it. But it
is high time to put a firm foot down
npon the vicious and the criminal im
migration which, in this luteal war of
employers and employed, has again
feiz d hold of each recurrirli: occasion
lo throw off tbeyogeaod take up trie
pietol and the torch. And if, in the
ndoption of tuis course, it should bo
come nt oeaiar to m -teout justice to
the agents of their importation, regret
will be snrdl and tears siturco.
Another phase of this vast difficulty
which should not be permitted to pass
without careful investigation is the re
peated charge of daring and fliirrant
discrimination by curtain soft coal car
rying railroads. We have bad instances
of this thing in our own territory; and
nnd they have been sufficient to inske
entirely plausible the contention that
nnfalmeai in the matter of freight re
bates has had much to do with the de
moralization of wages iu the bitumin
ous regions. To compel tho interstate
carrier systems to observe fair and
honest schedules of chargoi is a
difficult if not an impossibla task. But
it ought to possible at least to limit
the enormity of their past and present
discriminations, and to reduce to a
smaller margin tlian tho present one
ihe range of their rate shadings and
ilnctuations. If the two evils of
vieiouB immigration and vicious dis
crimination could in some manner be
scaled dowu, it woald perceptibly re
duce the liability of frequent strikes,
with all their vast volume of attend
nnt annoyances, loss and misery.
By common consent the Democrats
might give Mr. McDonald, of Kings
ton, the cold comfort of a gubernator
ial nomination that nobody else seems
Let Us Have No More Trifling.
It is announced in certain prominent
Republican newspapers that by mans
of a fusion with the Populists tbo Re
publican campaign managers at Wash
ington hope to capture several more or
less doubtfu'. Southern states. We
trust that this rumor is untrue. Wo
bope that tho active management of
the next Republican congressional cam
paign will not beconn so eager for
party snccess as to offer or accept any
overtures looking to the placation of
t o Populist movement as it is now
The Domocrats can outplay the Re
publicans in this kind of demagogism,
This is a good year to nail the colors
of tho party fairly and unflinchingly
lo tho masthead; a good year to stick
flitly to honest principles. We have
no hesitation in saying now, without
hesitation or equivocation, that the
masses of the party are in n j mood to
ratify any bargain which exaota as its
price a compromise with the ignorance,
the viciousness and the illimitable
political vagaries that form the Popn
llitlo movsment. The intelligence and
the, conscience of the p?ople nre today
turniDg to Republicans for help. They
are holding to it the outstretabed hand
of renewed conndanoe and offering to
it once more the pledga of their frank
trust. It would be suicidal to spurn
this overture by proffring a hand be
fouled with the heresies of socialism an 1
Republican leaden mnst not repel
the great present opportunity.
The occasion culls for etanch nnd
stilling patriotism, tor unyielding
foulty to established principle. Ooly
along this Hue will tho party regain its
former strength uurt prestige. Only
by such a course will tlwro come to its
support that growing incitpindent ele
ment which casts its vote, not us it
father did, but as its own reason dic
tates and as its own CDiissienoe ap
proves. This Dots not appear to be Richard
Croker's lucky year.
The DEFEAT in the Fifth Luzerne
district of Captain John T. Fiannery
for renomination by the Domocrats
was caused by n combination of the
other candidates, upon W. II. Rut
ledge, a gentleman of excellent
reputation and much builneil ex
perience. Individually, both Mr. Rut
ledge and. the captain are energetic
men. who would creditably represent
their constituents at II arrisbnrg. But
the circumstances of the l itter's re
tirement are such as off-r strong
hops to tho Republicans of the district;
and if they should match tho enemy's
candidate with one equally popular,
there would be more than common op
portunity to reclaim the district.

To Stop Railroad Tie-ups.
Reference has already been made to
certain proposition? advanced at
Washington by congressmen who hone
to nbridge the erowitic tendency to
hurtful railway strikes. Some of these
measures ure obviously extretii", but
one has been jointly formed by Repre
sentative! Tawney, of Minnesota, anl
Hartman, of Montana, which appar
ently oilers a good bnsis for expsri
mnt. The general intent of this bill
is to eornpel tho arbitration, before the
federal district courts, of such wag)
disputes as are calculated to interfere
With interstate commerce The bill's
detailed provisions are thus outlined in
a Washington diipatoh:
When a controversy exists between a
coi. pany ai.d its employee which Impedes
or threatens to impede the transportation
of passeugeii or property or uiniK wither
party, by Uliug a petition, may secure from
the circuit court a citation directing the
Other party to the controversy to appear
nu.i answer. If neither party exercises
this rik'lit either before or within a rea
sonable time after the strike occurs it is
made the fluty ot tLe district attorney or
the United sut', upon the request of
any hoard of ira'.te or of any ten citizens,
to luing tho parties into rom t for tliu set
tlmeut of the dispute, Upon the consent
of the parties it becomes tho duty "f the
I court to hear and determine tho contro-
! versy in the same manner that it would
hilar aud determine any matter properly be
j fore it. Jt the parties do not content to the
court hoariag ;ho controversy a board of
uruitratton is to be appointed to wnoni
tho matter is referred. Within three
daya after the award ii hied either party
may move to have it vacated or modified,
but only on the grouud of its having been
procured by fraud or corruption or upon
errors of Law materially uffuctins tbo
rights of either party. When confirmed
the award become! the decree of the court
and is to be conclusive. Severe penalties
are imposed for a failure or refiir-al on the
part of the company to comply with tho
judgment, provided inch refusal causes a
strike. But if the company complies with
the Judgment so long as tho conditions in
force when it is rendered remain un
changed it is declared to b a misdemean
or for two or more of tbo employes or for
any outsider to combine or conspire for
the purpoHO of caustug a strike or for tho
employes to go upon a strike on account of
uuy matter previously determined by tbo
judgment. This is an offense which must
b proved by a jury trial.
Tho fatal objection in most schemes
ot compulsory arbitration by action of
tbo state, that of a lack of enacting
piwer, would saem to be avoided in
this bill. There uiuy be exceptions,
yet as a rule it is concedod that when
a dispute of this character gets square
ly before a United States court the
finding of that court will be obeyed. It
is. n habit of our federal tribunals to
tolorateno nOMSni As a rule, too,
the decisions of the federal courts are
fair, candid and just. The cry that
the corporations could unduly influence
them is for the most part false. If tills
particular bill is ever accorded an hon
est test It will undoubtedly prove so
satisfactory to the general public as to
become thereafter an accepted function
of the courts and a valuable protection
against wags wars in which the most
victimized class is that which, at

People who believe in the effect of
evil omens found ample illustration to
sustain their views in a scene that was
enacted on Washington avenue yes
terday afternoon. About 5 o'clock H
covered wagon drawn by u handsome
span of dapple gray horses rolled up
Spruce street in the vicinity of the
commonwealth building at an easy
gal'. The vehioie boro inscriptions
that indicated that it contained wares
from tho establishment of Bros &
l'iro, macaroni manufacturers. There
appeared nothing nmisi about the
turnout except tho driver. The youth
who held the reins had the languid air
or a Venetian nondollar, nnd seem1
lll-tittsd to guide a four-wheeled era!;
on tho lively streets of Scranton,
As the team turned into Washington
avenue an evil omen appeared in the
shak)e of a white dog. The cur mined
into tho street and barked fiercely at
tho maccaroni equippago. Tho team
did not appear to be affected by the ac
tions of the dog, but the gondolier WUS
vitably moved. Ha gave one of the
most remarkable exhibitions of horse
manship ever wltneilid on the avenu".
Lty a turn of the wriit tho team was
guided down the embankment between
Frank Johnson's paint shop an I Bick
ns' saloon. Miking a eircle the team
came out with the wagon riifht si le Up
on tho sidewalk in front of Baokna's
place. Af a "iitle, pac the Jehu then
directed tuo steeds t the street pay ment
again, but Iu an Instant had them
over the sidewalk on the poatofflct plot.
By this time the spectators about the
street begin to realizf that they were
not acquainted with the curvss of
the driver, and when the horses
were turned into tho street again
Ilia pedtstriaus began to fl;o in
every direction. The team was
turned up th avenue and dippod an
acknowledgement to thu statue of
Washington as itpussed on two wheels.
At this period tho companion of the
gondolier lost his affection for maca
roni and dropped out of tho wagon In
the endeavor to describe another eircle
in the vicinity of Browning's market,
the driver encroached upon the laws of
gravitation iu gnoh a manner that there
was a Visible fall in macaroni. As the
wagon, driver and all went over in a
heap, th dapple grays freed themselves
and galloped for the undeveloped town
lots of North S:ranton.
When ho emerged from the wreck
the driver looked nrouu 1 for a white
dog. But the animal tied vanished
There were no white dogs about Wash
ington avenue. Tho mystery as to the
identity uu I ownership of the dog lies
not hewn solved. The good official! of
the court house, who witnessed the ex -blbltlon,
hava tried in vain to aooount
for the appearance and disappearance
of the cur. Many thought that there had
boen no dug in t.ie case, but Attorney
George, Davidson corroborated tin
driver in his statement that u dog,
spectral or otherwise, bad cross -d tli
path of tho ill icaroni seller. At th
prothoaotary's oflloe trie opinion is
unanimous that he who disbelieves in
ihe sign of disaster as given in the
strange appearance of the spotless can
ine will do well in future to beware of
la the general hnlub nnd smudge
that will continue from this date until
July 4, many of us will pro baby forget
that we onci were boys. It is well that
national independence should bo given
a proper send off once a year, but the
prolonged period of rejoicing ou part
of the enthusiastic small boy has a
wearing tffect upon all stva dealrs in
fireworks. Nervous people regard with
apprehension the prolonging of the
Fourth of July tsasou with each re
turning year. Iu olden times the pat
riotic yonth contented himself
with making it racket for a
period of twenty-four hours ; but tho
ever glorious iu this age that, does not
all rw a fusillade of crackers and
bombs for at least four weens is not
considered much of a Fourth. The
memory of the events which havo oc
casioned tli j annual dim, however,
should reconcile nervoue citiz'ns to the
infliction of today and aid them in en
during the results of young America's
