The eil'di't to promote the cause of
compulsory education in this state by
secret caucuses is unwise.-; aiul however
well meant, it will do more harm than
tfnod. The furtive gathering of secret
society lepreseutatives said to have
been held in llarrisburg this week for
the purpose of promoting this needed
reform makes a mistake to involve in
fictitious mystery a subject that needs
to shun no publicity, however conspic
uous. The proposition that children
should be educated in tho public
(schools, or in private schools where the
equivalents of a public school educa
tion are taught, requires of its advo
cates no resort to star chamber tactics
nor hocus pocus. It is a Irani;, plain
anil sensible proposition, to be seen and
studied of, by and for all men, the
more the merrier.
The platform of true Americans with
reference to this line of furtive advo
cacy is one of uniUalilied hostility.
There is nothing in the proposed re
form that calls fr bolted doors. The
notion tiiat obtains in some circles
that unless the progressive duties of
American citizenship be muilled in a
deal of secrecy and thimblerigging this
country will go to the dogs, is false
and ridiculous The patriotism that,
in time of peace, has to exact a hailiug
sign and a pass word from its votaries
is not the same patriotism that makes
men heroes. In the final analysis it
will be fouud to be not far removed
from Heltishuess and self-seeking.
Aluch more to our liking, much more
iu keeping with the liberal teachings
of our times, ia the kind of patriotism
advocated the other day by Theodore
IlooFevelt, when lie said at Chau
tauqua: I want to prench tlio doctrine of practi

It is tinio in theso matters for good
citizenship to coino out into the open.
The cause of truth and justice will
never be permanently injured by frank
ppeaking. If compulsory education is
of value, it is because it tends to make
citizenship manlier. It cannot be of
value along lines tliatcultivate strategy,
chicanery and self-deception. We are
of those who scout the idea that any
race or class or faith, anarchists pos
sibly excepted, is secretly plotting to
overthrow this government. We re
pudiate the suggestion that our Catho
lic fellow citizens harbor any such
design; just as we would repudiate a
counter suggestion charging nefarious
purposes to Protestants as a claws. Let
us get rid of theso miserable little
prejudices; let us, one and all, get out,

Henri Watterson turns away from
the nauseating spectacle at Washing
ton sick and sore at heart "There
was,'! lie says, "but one key to the
situation, and that was the Chicago
platform. If our leaders had trusted
to this, and this alone, they would
have electrified the country, have
forced the traitors to their individual
accountability, and, having lost a bat
tle that was destined to be lost, they
could Lave adjourned congress, ap
pealed to a united party and looked
without a fear or a blush to Novem
ber. As it is, and for the time being,
all is lost, honor included, and what
was a year ago a resistless and cenfl-
deut army, Hushed with victory, is to
day, a host without a lender, wander
iug aimlessly in the wilderness of fac
tion and despair." Wo are slowly
gravitating to tho conviction that our
esteemed blue grass confrere is au
idealist, whose measure of content
will never be tilled this side paradise.
Maine Hkithuvass, Iu renominat
ing Tom lieed, threw out a free hint to
the Fifty-fourth congress.
The Hospital Problem.
The contention of the state board
of charities that state aid to local in
stitutions of mercy is based upon an
erroneous principle is doubtless well
founded. It docs not seem fair that
the people of Nescopeek, for example,
should by obligatory taxation bo
forced to help defray the expenses of
maintaining hospitals in Wilkes
lliirre, l'itt.itoii, Ashland or Carbon
dale. The Ihvt duty of each citizen is
toward his own household; and, in
precisely similar manner, the Ihvt duty
of each community is toward tho un
fortunates withlu its gates. As an ul
timate proposition it should undoubt
edly bo decreed in so far as the state
board of charities lias jurisdiction in
the premises, (hat no funds belonging
to the state and derived by general
taxation, shall be voted toward the
establishment of local eleemosynary
institutions until the localities which
desire such institutions shall llrst have
exhausted every reasonable ell'oit to
establish them themselves. This is
sensible, fair and proper, and carries
out the familiar adage that "Provi
dence helps tlie.se who llrst help them
selves." JUit while this is the reform which
should be ultimately approximated, it
is not cue that can be brought about
in a day. The precedent of appropri
ating state funds for the erection and
maintenance, in whole or in part, of
hospitals for the accommodation, pri
marily, of workmen injured in the an
thracite coal mints has been estab
lished iu this commonwealth; and it is
no more than just that the people of
Scruntou, w ho have iu years past been
taxed to help maintain such hospitals
for the numerically smaller com
munities of Wilkes-liartv, Ashland,
Pittston and Carbondale, should re
ceive considerate treatment in return,
now that the overcrowding of the use
ful but limited Lackawanna hospital
lias presented them, also, with the neces
sity of providing amplified hospital ac
commodations. We are pleased to see
that Colonel II. M. Boies, this city's
representative on the state board of
charities, fakes this rational view of the
subject, and is disposed to use his in
lluence with the board in behalf of a
proposed appropriation of state funds
conditional upon the nmnifcslaliou of
a local determination to supplement
the state appropriation with liberal
' In this connection Tjik Tjunt'XE de
sires to express renewed confidence
in the availability of its suggestion
that instead of expending money iu a
dubious attempt to patch the old hos
pital into a semblance of convenient
dimensions, the butter plan would be
to move energetically toward an en
tirely new hoapital, to be located, if
possible, upou an entirely new site.
The forty thousand Scraulonians who
reside on the West Side, and who rep
resent a dominant proportion of the in
dustrial population of our city, deserve
the convenient presence of a first class
hospital. We suggested the other day
that a site at Bound Woods would
prove un attractive locution. This idea
was advauced without deliberation;
but it has already fouud appreciative
assent, and with, the right kind of en
ergy at work in the solution of the
problem, there is good reason to hope
that a new miners' hospital on that
charming wixidland kuoll could be

sycophancy of his subservient organs
will not meet such grave accusa

Monday agahmt the executive of the
nation. Tho Democratic party is
scarcely prepared to admit that its
mie-t trusted leaders are base liars
while, the president is immaculate."
A more siulcleii "turning of the tables''
