(I Wh can oordltlly ooDoarin unvraon tioii of the inline of Charles Emory Smith which hs for its ptirpoaw tbo oilliiiK of public attuntion to his titness for a United States eenutorsMp. W do not know that ill-. Smith is a can didate for eenator; nor tlint be would accept if chosen. But wo do know that it would on a happy day which should iee in the senate from tbil stato a Kontleinau of Mr. Smith's varied learning, irraoe, polish nod eloquence. Then indped would "the man and the occ:ision meet and match." Compulsory Education. Under the provisions of tho Pound law, which has recently been enacted by the legislature of New York, chil dren between tha ages of 8 and 10 years must attend fume public, private or parochial school, or receive noma train ing during tho entire school year; chil dren between the Bgei of 19 or 14 must rcoelTO schooling at least one-half of each school year; whlla children be tween 14 ami 10 must no either to school or !o work. Iu tho enforcement of these provisions penalties aro pro vided for daliberataly negligent par ants and guardians ; while Intneosss of inoorriglbU truants, certain magis trates uro clothed with the power of committment to special schools. Ia connection with this law tho fol lowing statistics, compiled by tlie Wil 1. .import Times, u Democratic paper, are ihtereatlng, particularly wuon it is remembered that a Democratic gov ernor of Pennsylvania one year ago vetoed a timilar bill, introduced by, Representative John R. Parr. With tho prefatory remark that "New York had need of some law to cimp-)l chil dren to attend Bchool,",tbe Times says: "Of the l,07ii. 01)o pupils enrolled in 1888, then was an average attendance ot 665,574, about CO per cent. This average attendance was less than of any state having a COmpullory educa tion law, Take Massachusetts ior instuuee: Its 333,210 enrolled pupils furnished inn average daily at tendance of 288,648, upon public day Bcboole alone. All its largest cities have parochial and evening schools, Statistics of which, added, would in crease tha attendance. AJ far as the sta tistics show, tho average attendance in Uaiaacboiettt ia SO per cent, of the total enrolim-nt, a Very siunific.ut ex hibit. Alter N'ew York's law lias bed i in operation as many years it onght to show as favorable results for that state. Pennsylvania stands next to New York in nnmbn- oi' pnpill en rolled, namely 1,032,118, with an aver age daily attendance oi." 70S, 719, or io per c?nt. spprox'.m itelr. It ranks very weli among states havint; no compui eory education law, and it might rauk very much better." The opposition to compulsory edusa tion iu this slate is based chieiiy upon the argument that compulsion is not the kind of force to employ. Yet these same opponents of compulsion in mat ters of education tiurtsorvedly favor compulsory arbitration without ex plaining their inconsistency Tha agi tation of tiiis Hiit'j-ct in other utates has Invariably had the effect of demon strating that along wise aud liberal lines state education, even witb com panion as n feature for those who re fuso to bo led, is a BUCOeufu safeguard of citizenship and ouo which the state may well insist upon in sheer self do fens Representative BbYAN of Nebraska tas a clever plan to m iko Uncle Sim the banker lor tho Nicaragua canal enterprise, by means of n big issue of iiat money. Unfortunately for Repre sentative Bryan, the Nicaragua canal fover has abated a great deal of late; and an application of worthless money will not tie needod to insure the pa tient's recovery. Literary Hallucinations. Mrs. Richard Raalf, widow of the Pittsburg poet and newspaper man whose writings iu verse have gained coneiidrablo renown, addresses an inter esting letter to tho editor of the Pitts burg Times Having noticed in that journal a reproduction of the versos, "What My Lover Said," with their au thorship credited to Colonel Realf, and doubtless stung by The Tri hush's ex posnreof that false crodit, Mrs. Rjalf now writes to inform the Pittsburg put" lie thaf'Richard lloali's literary ability is ton widely known both ia Amsrica and Europe for him to be accused of theft at this lato day. Thore have of late years been different individuals trying to use his productions ss their own. It is not my intention to rob uny individ ual of bis glory; yet, how dishonorable to try to rob the dead of tits glory I" In law this communication woulJ le oalled the retort evasive. It is shrewd enough not to claim for Colonel Realf the authorship of Homer Greene's beautiful poem, but by, n thoroughly feminine appeal to tho sympathies it seeks to create tho inference that Col onel Realf and not Greene really did write the poem. The point nt issue is n ptn'ull one in tfffct, for nobody of character iu literaturo longer doubts tiie genuineness of Mr. Greene's claims to the authorship-of the verses in ques tion. But in principle it illustrates plagiarism at its worst and calls re new, d attention to that peculiar possi bility of the humuu iniud which, as a re ml) of fruj-.iaut repetition of a given falsehood, gradually ltliplrei the fal sifier with a belief in the truth of his own deliberate Imaginings, Munchausen, it it- said, lied so long and earnestly that ho eventually be e :r.iii a convert to hi own romaucea. Dsudet, la bis inimitable Taniscon ie ries, has, in the person of the delight fnl Tartarin, given us a capital dopll citoof ainucbauwn in this respect. Bun are "light in the upper story," :s- perchance thay would not be so raadiljrjeiMeoelvad, Ami it is poani that iu ths cu3 of several claimants of Homer Greene'i laurels there is less of criminal intent than of nufortnoate hallucination. At tho aaitlJ linn it would bo uujmt to all concerned to permit this speciss of imposture to at tain its ends. Yhn an author works f o well and so steadily aa Homer Green has workfd and is working in litera ture, be deserves the full credit for bis labors, whether the man who would tilch them from him be an Inspired en thusiast or merely a mean thief. Even the Ditnocratic Philadelphia Record is compelled to admit that a duty of one cent per pound ou sugar, raw una refined, would "pull the claws of the sugar trust" nud lot the Demo cratic party on: of the "coil in which corrupt schemers havs contrived to en mesh it." This ia equivalent to con fessing that as the thing itandl, the corrupt schemers nud tho sugar trust have li shade tho beet of It. Ic may bs important to bear this in mind. -v Why Not Robinson? A dispatch from llarrisbnrg an nounces that unless either ilurrity or lleusel can be persuaded to sacrifice blin.Mlf.tba Democratic nomination for governor will ueod to go to some one like ex-Sheriff Robinson of Lacka wanna, who can afford to sustain the expense of n losing campaign, in rec ognition of past favors aud us a proof of party loyalty. Inasmuch as Uarrity and Ilaassl ex hibit no frantic eagerness to stop up to thoir medicine, it would soein to be Rabinion'l opportunity. He has long wanted to be governor. Inasmuch us ho cannot bo thai, th next nearost thing would be to be nomiuated for govern r and jet roundly beaten. Iu the roie of martyr, our Charles Would look itatneinue and pretty; an 1 the or ganization, whatever that is, would remain intact. This is really the time for Licka W.;un;i to get bnother high place on the roll of larae. We should naturally prefer to see this stiggsstion emanate (rem o Democratic tH.urc): but if it cannot do that, then we'll start tho boom ourselves. This coy and shrink ing modesty role does weli in plays and novels, tut it will not declare divi dends in polities. Now ia Robinson's chance to drink deep of the acrid wa ters of ambition; now is bis time to Light, Llto i and dio. It will be exceedingly difficult to make the numerous friends of Eraatni 'Vv'imau in Sernnton believe that he has been guilty of deliberate foriiery, with full foreknowledge and criminal intent. That the uiau liuy not have practiced as prudently as ho preached is possible, if not probable, That he my have be"a cureless in money mat' ten is elso plausible, But so far as cau be judged from evidence thus Isr available it certainly does not appear that he haa been ;t hsart a hypocrite aud a deceiver, The cage against him, on tho contrary, b ars symptoms which make doubly uecesparv a sus pension of harsh judgment until the defense ebali have I - en complete! After the Tariff, What? Judge Qroesoop, of Illinois, says he believes the tariff question has been taken out of party politics to a largo degree, by the instructive action of the Democrats in seeking to ovi r throw pro tection. For another generation, at ieasf, he thinks the American people will permit no departure from a protective tariff basts. The next issue to which he espucts to see the Republican party address itself will be tho solution of the wage earner's problem; in other words, tho institution of such wise and Balutary reforms as will tend to check the growing tendency in this country toward a ;dtstructive secutniic war be tween the chassis. Dut perhaps we cannot do better than to qnote s por tion of the instructive! address which he delivered at Gnlesburg, on Memo rial day last: I havo uo quarrel with tho labor unions as organisations, but the rwht to accumu late nud the right to work is the right of each person as an individual. It is not de rived from the state nor from society, but trum laws higher thau eiiher. It. is a personal iig':t, not becnuse of cit iz-nsinp, but because of manhood. Mo government, no aggregation of Individuals ean right fully interfere with or restrict this right, E-aeor simply turns into the uses of ctvil bullion what tba Creator baa laid at onr door, and the individual right to do tbil ami to use unrestrictedly its fruits lathe primary ami highest Inheritance of man kind. It will be a mighty boulnvorsemont when tho owner of the biawny arm aud tho willing heart can uo longer employ then on whatever ho finds to do; when the poscssessor of a teeming brain shall have lis children taken away the moment they are born ordevelop useiulues; when the earnings of labor and brain, their stock of tavings, cense to be in the exclu sive touch and control of the producer. Would you mortgage arm ami intellect before they are bomt Would you bar them out of lields to which civilization has beckoned themf Would you paralyse tho uorve centers of civilization by re moving every inducement and inspiration io individual effort? Then listen to those dreams ot socinllsm that would level out with a heavy roll all individuality and personal manhood, and crush nil brains, arms aud hearts into the sodden mass called communism. Iu that day a man will no longer bo a man, no lunger even an individual unit, but blended into the mass will be shorn ot individuality aud robbed of incentive until li.'o aud effort have become without a note of hope to herald tbo dawn of a better day. From independent princes masters ot their per sons and belongings sent out on the con quest of greater things men will become spiritless slaves iu u gang of slaves. Dut the judge's plea for individual ity doea not end here. Ho very wisely and justly turns to the other side of the case, in language rem irk able for its candor: Neithor have I any qnnrrol with tho mobilization or capital wlncli Is essential to some of the great projects of Industrial development. The railroad, the telegraph, the steamboat a; d many of tun adjuncts upon which the movements of the present day are carried must, iu tlie necessity of their constitution, gather into a central management the control of individual capital. They aro tho legitimate objects of corporate existence, that intangible life to which tho stato gives birth iu the pro motiou of its great purposes, lint, it is time that wo should consider Whether corporate and all other consolidated mausumout of individual holdings should not be dcuiad, except in those necessary agencies witnout which industrial pro gress oould not, b- aobieved. It is unit, that we Hhould reverse, 1 think, the gen e ral policy crown up in the (Totted Btatea of conferring corporate existence upou any lawful project, The license thus ex tended has done more thnu anything alee to obliterate the individual from onr in dustrial system, it is especially time that in tho management of baataoM enterprleea the old privileges of competition should be re-establilbed and the heavy bund of im personal combination removed. The ex ercise of a power that prevents any man from tho pursuit of anon a calling aa his means penult, without subjection to the obstacles of unequal conditional ought to he us lawless as the imposition of restraint upon a right to work. These words are general, and do not point the way to particular remedies; but they are nevertheless sufrt.dently clear to serve as a guide to much fu ture legislation. That spirit is foreign to our people and to the igal purposes of the Republic iu party which seeks to bring into this country a repetition of the wage conditions visible abroad. Whatever it is that teudt to rob our workingtnan of his individuality as an independent citizen and civic unit is wrong and hurtful; and tho political party which lias successfully estab lished protection aud honest money need not shrink from carrying its good work out to its logical completion iu n curtailment of the tendency which seeks to sink the man in tho mass and to obliterate personality in dangerous economic aggregates. Choker's EUROPEAN trip was only his annual outing, of course, Dut it catno at a time so o pontine as to have all thu symptoms of a slide for liberty. MUSIC . .". and Musicians.

The young ladies oonnectsd with tho grand production, the "Pall of Baby lon," rehearse every afternoon at the armory under tho direction of Tallte Morgan. A glimpse obtained of the eborus yesterday afternoon as they moved through the intricate marches revealed the fact that the enthusiastic yonug people had gained n proficiency that was remark ible, considering the timo they have been engaged in the work of rehearsal. From present indi cations the "Fall of Dibylon" will be one of the finest exhibitions iu a spec tacular way ever witnessed in Boran ton. The concert at the Penn Avenue Baptist church tomorrow evening will he the occasion of the first appear nice of ssveral young voc I lists and elocution ists, araonir the number being Miss Lulu R-'ed, .Miss (irace Howard, Miss Mabel Howard, Janie Wilson and John Howard, jr.

Iu one tho discipline enforced leaves uo will but that ot the leader, no Individuality except that of the corps d'esprit. In the cither the loom of Consolidation is weaving into sin gle fabrics tlie individual holdings and personality of American proprietorship.
