One Criiic Answured.
One of the enrioni complaints that
hare come to The Tribune from sub
Ferihore who ure dissatisfied with its
etumi for local law-euforcetnent is the
aster lion of a Penn avenue merchant
that ''wo want the buinss men's
trade but Rive them no protection,"
As this sentence stands it it enigmatic;
nnd our critic unfortunately neglects
to ii cc 'inn my it with a key.
In order, bowever, to wake olear what
we conceive to be his tniiappreheniioa,
wo shall tali " tliia timely occasion to
tay that tho Bobanton Tbibukb
''wants the business inon'si tr.idj" be
cause it believe! that for every dollar
of trado it thus ecur-?s it will Rive a

patronage is increasing is becsuse it
lias given and proposes to continue to
give good service at fair rates. Wuen
i vsr Tbb Tbisunb ceatea to Jo this, we
want those do not get their
motley's worth to quit doing business
with it. That's both their privileg'
nnd thiir duty.
Insofar, however, as our critic fan
cies that the convictions which this
journal potaeaaea on public questions
will or can he swayed by their failure
to esc ape criticism, it einn to be a
good time to remark that ho is ehsriah.
ini: a delusion. Tho best "protection"
which we can give to Bcranton busi
ness men is to supply them with a daily
newspaper which has opinions of its
own and is not afraid to print them
They cannot expect "protection" in il -legitimate
practices, and they will not
get it. If our friend object! to THB Tniu
I'NE because it believes in law observ
ance and law enforcement, we are
porry for him. But wo venture to
whi-per that he will lose lots of choice
news and comment if he shall permit
liis momentary pique to deprivj him of
the daily visitations of the favorite
morning newspaper of northeastern
If the Pittsbnrg pipers are to ba be
lieve I, the birth struggle of the new
"Progressive American party" which
was to revolutionize national politics,
proved too severe for its meagre vitality
and the movement has therefore ex
pired. Tnis does not sjein to be a
4 -d year for third parties.
On the Wrong Track.
Few features of those newspapers
which are published at a distance from
tho scene of the recent coke riots aro
more interesting than the comments
iiri-i upon the rioters, their omployers,
and mining conditions. To call inter -i
sting, for instance, the nsiertion of
the Iodiaoapolil Journal that "Henry
C. Frick's Homestead policv defeated
the It 'publican party in 1802.'' is cer
tainly not an exaggeration. Wo might
even go fnrthor and truthfully cill it
But this is not to what we desired
particularly to call attention. After
quoting the report that ninety p r cent
of tlni ntiiking coke rioters were un
naturallcsd foreigners, and that ninety
three per cent of them have uever paid
a cent to tiie support of this govern
ment, the Journal adds:
But when they are condemned the opar-
atort who put then into the m to mke
the places of r-tter men donerve the same
condemnation, Tiioyget into trouble with
their foreign workmen nnd then invoke
the law to protect them. (Standing out
against all efforts to restoro poaco ami re
lUtnt work on a fair basis, they invoke the
military arm of Pennsylvania and some
parts of Ohio to hold their ignorant nnd
vicioUB element in check. Popular govern
ment should not be subjected to such
strains and the people put to so much ex
pense. The ignorant and vicious foreign
miners who arc responsible for most of the
violence, ehonld be mado to obey the laws.
Furthermore, if the ctaB of coal op
erators who i. nve got these men about
their mines because t hey can live on lens
toi d and work for less wages than Ameri
can citizeuB insist on bringing the condi
tions about eV' iy year or two which lead
to these outbreaks, it seems that tlie state
el.' i, ;d ci uiPmn anil take the coal prop
ties m the interest, of law and order. Pri
vate property is thus taken for public
buildings and for railroads, It piivatu
property can be taken tor forts to defend
u country against external foes, why can
not it be taken to put an eud to internal
turmoil and violence much more luiuiiciil
to the aims of good government?
This ia a conspicuous case of g tting
the cart before tho horae, No donbt
the coke producers nnd soft coal opera
tors would readily sell their ovens and
mines to the government, and be glad
of the chance. lint such willinguess
on their part would not necessarily im
ply that the government would be jus
tified in buying. There is too much
dumping of individual cares on tho
government's shoulders as it is. Gov
ernment is the poorest thing to do DM"
iuoss with, known. It is ready to 1-t
its cilizuns do business and to protect
tbem while drlog it; but it has no
business trying to do iheir business for
them, and this is as true of eoal niir.os
and cck-i oveus at it i3 of railroad! and
telegraphs and grist mills and slab fac
lories. The government's business is
to mind its own business and not to so
seizing the business of its citizens. The
Indianapolis Journal, living so noar a
distinguished ex-president who has
clear views on this question, ought to
be bettor informed than to advocate
state socialism as a cure for ills grow

The temporary revival of tbo obso
lescent spirit of the Lost Cause has
come to bo an expected consequence of
tho annual Memorial Day afiUttU, Thit
year's observance developed no uncom
mon custom; it merely gave au unu
sual flicker in one or two places to the
dying sectional lires, the last, snappish,
rebellious glare, as it were, which pre
cedes utter extinction. One of these
pluces was Atlanta, (la , where cadets
at the (i"orgin military institute, on
the afternoon of May 'Jo, paraded the
streets behind a Confederate war flag,
That was harmless enough, iu inten
tion. It whs harmful because of its
luck of motive or necessity. The other
place of unusual belligerence was at
Richmond, Vs., where ou Ujv. Dr.

valve of his superfluous pyrotechnic
oratory In acclamation of accession an 1
state rights,

papers which afford a vivid coLtrast.

Jin. HaVBMBYEB, the president of
tho sugar trust, is proving a very r i
frssbing witness, He uJmits that the
trnst nosy have contributed largely to
political campaign funds, und Bays it
may havo expected protection in re

done by his wicked partners. He devoted
hie able energies to other parts of tiie

A Moral Victory.
Iu obedience to the written rt quest
of the mayor, thoje druggists in this
city who have losu resisting Iho Sun
day law of l?i)4 now announce their
willingness to yield. As we understand
their position, they do this partly out
of deference to the mayor and partly
out of deference to the sentiment which
is hostile to unnecessary labor q:i Sun
day. Only one drug.;ist is undecided as to
his future course; but it seems reason
able to suppose that he will yet maui
fi st a similar willingness to obey the
law, These various drug stores will
remain o;,ou, its before, for the sale of
drugs; but tlioy will case to sell such
merchandia as would bo generally
taken as involving unnecessary and un

This is a moral victory uot robbed of

amicable and conciliatory means.
