It would be an irreparable mistake
should the board of control permit it
self; in this matter, to be placed in t
position of antagonism toward the re
sponsiDie citizenship of Scranton. Iu
most cities the difficulty is to get citi
zens to sanction necessary Improve
ments. Here we have the pleasant
contrast of taxpayers willing and anx-
prominent and capable Democrat from
Pike county, could have secured the
nomination at that time. The coun
ties of Monroe and Carbon with their
six votes were at all times willing to
cast their ballots for him, but Hart de
feated any attempt to secure the three
votes from Pike county, which were
necessary to make a majority Hurt
insisted that the votes of Pike should
be cast for Mutchler. This was subse
quently done and Mutchler was nomi
nated. It is a rare instance in politics
when a capable man is defeated
through the inability to get the dele
gates from his own county, and these
delegates are given to a candidate from
another county. Mutchler had no
claim upon Pike county at that time.
He was not the choice of the people,
aud yet Hart succeeded In defeating a
son of Pike and nominated Mutchler.

The Sixth district Republican conven

ex-Attorney General Kirkpatrick, of

things which Ilarrity shall demand.
This extract from tha Timnn vmtnr,lff

dently has one financial policy clearly and
nrmiy nxeu: --very candidate on the

who have 'been there' want the old stuff

Those Republican nominees In ilonro
county who have given the battle up an
hopeless, before a gun was fired, would
feel peculiar if the cominir tidHl w .
should submerge their opponents after all.
MAKE IT FIREPROOF.
It is stated that there are member nf
the board opposing a fireproof building.
These gentlemen should revise their oplu
ion at once. It would be an endless dis
grace to such a city ns Scranton to erect a
non-fireproof building for its high school,
especially on that site, in pursuit of a
penny-wise, pou ml -foolish policy that del
iberately risks tne lives of hundred nf
children and their tonchers.
The difference between a firenronf nnri
non-fireproof building is namsd hr t.li
lowest bidder as between $17,000 and $18
000., By the next lowest the difference U
a few thousands more, but tbe difference
between the two bids on a fireproof build
ing is just an even $1,000; tbe one making
the sum a little over tlH7,0O(, the other
just as much over $188,000, If th differ
ence botwesn this and the bids for a non
fireproof building were far greater than it
Is, that wonld make no difference In tho
absolute weight of the call for the erec
tion of a building protected against fire as
far as human wisdom and means can do
it The money of the taxpayers, whether
they bava children of their own in tbe
high school or not, cannot be more wisely
spent than in making this building to be
e res ted a safe one.
U there are members ot tha' board of
control who deli berately disregard the
warning of tbe city engineer that not
withstanding the filling up of tbe mine
cavities in order to mane a secure founda
tion for the building the risks of an awful
conflagration tbtre if Bra were once by
accident started, are of an unusually
dangerous nature then it is to be hoped
for Scranton's credit that these will be
thoronghly outnumbered bv thosa h
consider children's lives of somewhat more
rains than the saving of a few thousand
dollars on the chance that tire may not
coma, at least while they are in office.
Parents aud all public-spirited citizens
ot Scranton should make thmlvn h..rA
in one united demand that the new high
school building shall he a fireproof one.
