The Reward is Cffared.
In finally deciding to offer a suitable
reward for Medala's apprehension the
county commissioners have wisely de
ferred to a strong public sentiment.
ThisBcutiment may bo vain in its hope
that the proposition of a ;cuniary
prisa will have a teudu.icy to quicken
the processes of detection in this in
stance. I!ut the fanlt would, in that
eYent, fall on the peoplj tlieineeivs,
und no ceusure could reasonably at
tach to the commissioners.
When it is remembered that iu near
ly a score of years, with all the crime
that has been perpetrated acting as a
prod to more determined repressive
effort, there has not been a single exe
cution in Lackawanna conuly. tho
need of yot moro decnive work on tbo
part of those charged with law en
forcement becomes plain. Much of
this growing volume of crimes and
misdemeanors originates, no doubt, in
the encouragement offered by the large
percentage of prior criminals who es
oapH with lijrht icntencea or get away
altogether. If the offering of a reward
vfonld have a tendency to notify the
public that bencoforth the law will
mean business in the case of foreign
born criminals who seek protection
among their countryman or got it
equally well through the inactivity of
some constables, it would be a good
lnova whether it resulted directly In
the capture of Aiedala or not.
While the delay of the commissioners
may have been misinterpreted, it is
sufficient to kuow that they have now
reached B safe position. There was
and is no occasion for them to feel ag
grieved because the public wanted a
reward advertised. The public, in any
event, must pay the piper; and it has
less fanlt to liud with the commission
ers, now that thuy have permitted it to
have its way, than it would have had
had the original refusal beeu prolonged.
The work of tho psace officials in this
case has been, for the most part, painir
taking and energetic. It has, however,
been performed under disadvantages.
Now that there is money in locating
Medala, perhaps some man in need of
money will win it. In that hop, the
reward question is loft to solve itself.
"Xo man knows," says Mr. Sing rly,
philosophically, "how many friends he
has until he is named for a public oftic,
nor the number of his enemies until
tho votes are counted." After all, is
such knowledge worth the price?
The Lottery Swindle.
It need not have surprised anybody
to learn from yesterday's Philadelphia
Times that the drawings of a celebrated
lottery company which annually drains
thousands of dollar out of this com
munity are regulated with care by tho
lottery officials, who place the big
prizss where they will do the most ad
vertising. This has long been a subject
of scspicion. Now it is to all appear
ances confirmed in a letter openly
written by a New Orleans firm of gen
eral lottery agent! to a gentleman in
JHiiladelnhia whom it thought to In
veigle into acting as its local represen
tative upon a commission basil,
In tins letter appears tho following
significant paragraph : ''We stand iu
a position to use our judgment as to
where the prizes will do the most good,
and wishing to establish a permanent
ngency with you, as we are satisfied
yon will make us ti competent agent,
providing we jive you a good start,
therefore have conclude 1 to let you
have a prizi in the July drawing of
$3,000, this being two-tilths of the sec
ond capital prize of 0,000. In order
to get the very beat 1 suits from the
advartiiment we wish you to
sell om-fifth of tbo ticket, which
is enclosed in a small envel
ope, to some well known promi
nent person. and keep the other fifth for
yourself. Enclosed you Will find 115
ticket", for which you must remit
$100.00 and have the remittance reach
us at least three days before tho date of
the drawing, otherwise the numbers
sent you will to cancelled. Wo are
satisfied that with the advertising
you will get you certainly will ha
able to sell at least from l.UOO to
2.000 tickets monthly, oa which we
will allow iyou the regular commis
sion of 10 per cent."
Certain other information unearthed
by tho Times is valuable in its bearing
on this monumental swindle. Ti oue
ot their own circulars, naturally a
"Confidential" one, it is sail that even
if every prize offered by the lottiry in
its monthly drawings reached tho pur
chasers of tickets, only $205,400 would
lie paid out, as against receipts amount
ing to $500,000 This would leave a
monthly profit ot .134,000 if the draw
ing! w-ro all fairly conducted. Wheth
er or not they are fairly conducted may
be iuferred from the previously quoted
Since the mails have been closed to
the lottery bueiuess it is exceedingly
difficult to arrive at an approximation
of the amount of money annually sent
Oat from !?cr.iuton towird the swindle's
coltre. There wus onee a time wben it
was claimed thut fully $150,000 was
spent each year within the two comi
ties of Luzirne and Lnckawnnna npon
worthless pasteboards bought in ,,e
Imp of suddenly Acquiring wealth. If
this sunn drain oxists today, it must be
evident that the profits of the business
1 an iari;e, musinucu as noiuing sqaai
1 in:; 150,000 a year has been returned in
I the form of prizes. Those who bite and
;.;et caught nTi, however, no claim to
sympathy. Thrf hooli is Daitea piainiy
before their vorv eves.
FBOBADLYTHI most infamous of all
trusts is tba bread trust that is about
to bo formed in Naw York city. A
bread trnst is aimed directly at the
elass of unfortunates who can least af
ford to stand the pinching necessary to
fill tho coffers of tho syndicate Money
wrung from tho starving in this way
ooght to carry a greater curse with it
tbaa tho "thirty pieces of silver" that
bought tho betrayal or the S ivior of
Stout Democratic Blows.
It is possible that lveir Hardie. the
English D'mocrat, went to extremes
in his so-called "sensational" scoring
of royaltv iu the commons Thursday
evening while discussing the motion to
address congratulations to the queen
upon tho birth of 1111 heir to the Duke
of York. Y t what he said seems com
mon enough to American ear, and
would 8,0m to offer small excuse for
the intemperate hullabaloo that is oe
ing made over it. Let us examine
some of the things that Mr. Hardie
is credited with having said some of
the things that brought down such a
hornet's nest of reproaches upon his
bared Ilea I.
The motion, he declared, "was made
becauso the child was born in tho royal
family, and the houm has a right to
ask what particular blessing the royal
family has conferred upou the nation.
What special blessiug has the Prince
ol Wales conferred upon tho nation
that we should rejoice with him';' It
strikes our cruda and unemotional ear
that this was a very natural and proper
theme of interrogation, despite the
anxiety of Colonel Sa undersoil, the
Orangeman! to have Air. itaruio
squelched. It is what we ask iu this
country when 1111 administration
either doeiu't suit or else shows
tendency to be unuecesearily
ccstly. This, however, was not the
only pertinent point made by the plain
spoken member from Wettbampahire.
'The home," said he, "is asked to re-
joice bee iuse a child is born, but, up
to tho present, there le no means or
knowing his qualifications to reign
over this great empire. It is strange
that people who have so much to say
about tho hereditary element in an
other place should be so willing now
to indorse it In this particular instance.
As the house has not found time to
vote condolence with the widows, or
phans and others who aro suffering
from the terrible calamity in Wales, I
protest against the present mummery. "
The dispatch! inform us that when
Keir Hardie's level headed protest was
put to vote, its author was tne only
uiio who supported it, while all the re
maining members, toshow their cuckoo
loyalty, ehonted and stamped and
yelled themselves hoarse because the
kiugdoui remained intact. This heroic
victory of loyal royalists is truly touch
ing; it is as if an American congress
should desist from it labors to go into
mass meeting of congratulation over
an increase in tho census of tho white
house. Yet tho bluff Westhampshire
democrat struck telling blows, and
some day the people of Eagland will
appreciate the common sense of them.
A CURIOUS condition of things is re
vealed iu the sympathy strike now
"on" among western railroads. Em
ployes in the Pullman palace car shops
at Pullman, 111 , have a disagreement
with the management in relation to a
question of wages They struck ;
which was their legal right, so long as
no violence was exhibited. Then
cniiH the question of handling Pull
man cars on other roads; and the
American Trainmen's union decides
that a member of Its organisation most
not work on a train that lias a
Pullman car attached to it. The
commercial activities of two thirds
of the country aro suddenly crippled
by this sequence of events; car
wheels cease moving; mail and express
and freight fail to roach their destina
tion; the business engagements of ner
sons in nowise connected with the Pull
man Palace Cir Company nre necessa
rily broki'ii through mutual inability
to transport or travel; and throughout
the greatest strotch of hustling country
on tho world's map men , women and
children aro inconvenienced, and some
starved pirhapi, because a few pariom
at Pullman do not agree 011 a schulnln
of wages. Wo do not know anything
about tho merits of tba Pullman dill r
euce; but it is an easy thing to s.-e who
gets the worm of the big Strike which
has grown out of that small seed of
trouble. The am izing thing is that
the victimized pnblio UOMo't take bat
ter steps to protect itself.

SlOfiV OF THE STEEL RAIL.
Ch tCQQQ In fCf" C'C'M a.
Prior to 1870, the tarilf duty on steel)
rails was so low, and the wages of Ameri
can laborers iu that business were so high j
iu comparison with those of English la
borers, that it was impossible to compete
With the British iron masters iu that
business, But in i.sto congren laid a duty
of S-S a ton on steel rails and Ingots, ai.d 1
the result! have been eveu more wonder
fnl Hum In the wool industry. In lbTu I
only JD.i.ou tons 01 steel rsiia were uiaue m
this Country, but iu 1 tiS-b we manufactured
1,880,277 tons of steel rails, and from 1677
to WM, inclusive, wo mado 10,708,116 tons
cf steel rails, enough to build or relay over
150,000 miles of railway, and over 5,500,000
toi.u of Bessemer steel ingots for other in
The average cost of this T.2, 3(0,00(1 tons
ot steel wus about WO per ton ninouuting
to the enormous sum ot 81,115,0UOiO0O,
Bnppo! we allow 188,000,000, or about 10
per cent., bs pioiits to the manufacturers,
a pri tlt probably much larger ihan the ac
tual prolit, we shall have left 11 balance of
(80100,000 to the credit of the laboring
men who converted thut great mouiitniii
of iron ore into llrst-cluss hteel. Who can
say that protection bus not tieeu a benefit
to the laborers of this country!

Again, suppose the American Congress hud
followed the advice of our Pee-trade
friends and not put on that duty of 188 par
ton, nor any other protective duly, tf
course, we should have bu ll obiitd to im
port from England all thai enormous
quantity of steel, 'the froi- trader ask) 1
What difference woull tlii plan hive
made with our wnrkingmen, our capitalists
and our country -"
This: The British workman Would
inivii received nearly iJuO.oou 000, or its
English equivalent lor that labor, instead
of the American; the British capitalists
would have pocketed that 12120,000,000 of
profit!, its English equivalent, iuitead of
the American, and Ureat Britain would
be hugely enjoying that $1,110,000,000, or
ils Eui'llsh equivalent, instead of the
United States. True, we would have had
our rails and our ingots, but the resulting
benefits to our nation would have been as
follows: On the ouo hand, free trade,
plus the ateel, bat minus 1280.000,000 1 1
profits, and minus 1805,000,000 of wage-;
and on tho other, protection, plus tiie
steel and plus 1830,0110.000 of profits, nad
plus 8805,000,000 of wages.
