The reliability of the news sup
plied by the United Press is every
where conceded except iu the newspa
per omces which can afford only a
cheaper service. The Tkiuune does
not propose to mix up iu the fight of
rival news associations further than to
assure its growing circle of readers that
they will at all times be supplied with
the best and Jntest news that money

A Liberal Policy Is Best.
It ought not to take much delibera
tion to convince the Scranton Traction
company that it has everything to lose
and nothing to gain by a refusul to
keep faith with the city In the matter
of a suitably graded approach to the
Elmhurst boulevard. The cost of fin
ishing this grading Is cbmparatively
small. The driveway will be one of
the finest In Northeastern Pennsylva
nia, and many persons who may feel
too poor to drive upon it will, when it
shall be completed, take the street cars
to Nay Aug falls and make pedestrian
The completion of the driveway will
further swell the revenues of the Trac
tion company by the home-builders
that it will inevitably attract to the
wholesome and picturesque building
sites that lie beyond Webster avenue.
Scranton is bound to extend its resi
dence growth in this direction; the
sooner Mulberry street shall be made
presentable the sooner will this growth
materialize. From the standpoint,
therefore, purely of self-interest, the
small expenditure needed to put this
thoroughfare In good condition is a
prudent and a profitable investment
for the street railway company to
More important, however, than any
of these considerations is the fact that
the traction company has already
pledged itself to do this thing and can
not arbitrarily break faith without in
curring consequences most undesirable
to itself. Without going into auy dis
cussion of the internal workings of
that company, it may be said that a
policy of liberality toward its patrons,
such as we believe the present general
manager has been disposed to pursue
to the extent of his ability, is the only
policy which Scrantonians will appre
ciate. If officials at a distance think
otherwise, let them become familiar
with the situation.
The manner in which candidates
in the "hands of their friends" occa
sionally hustle seemsto indicate that
the world is losing faith in the bonds
Overcrowding the Common Schools.
The school directors of Wllkes-Barre
liave decided to send a committee to
New York, Philadelphia and Toledo,
O., to investigate the system of Indus
trial training in use in those schools.
They have also decided to add type
writing and shorthand to the course of
study in the commercial department
of the high school. It is evidently the
aim of Superintendent Coughlin to
make the public schools of Wilkes
Barre as practical as possible, bo that
the pupils who graduate from these
schools may, if not able to pursue the
higher studies in loftier schools, have
sufficient expertness in everyday bread
winning requirements to be more than
mere ornaments on the surface of so
ciety. We do not know what Superintend
ent Coughlin's belief is as to the de
sirability of expending public revenues
in the attempt to make the free public
schools equal to endowed colleges. We
do not know whether he regards with
favor or disapproval the popular ten
dency to load upon the teachers in our
public schools duties ranging all the
way from clay modeling to calculus
and from phonetics to French. But
we half suspect that he is wholesomely
old fashioned upon this subject, and
would prefer to have a few practical
things well done than to make a mess
of many useful and many useless
things in the impossible attempt to in
elude every known subject of human
interest in the public school curricu
Bo this as it may,
howevor, we are
in the age of addition aud multiplica
tion; an ace where people are not
contont to be taxed for the teaching
simply of the elementary branches Dut
must have the frills and the fol de rol
added thereto, with a new fad each
change of the moon. What any per
son would want or not want in this
matter must yield to the demands of
the masses, and it is perhaps well that
the tendency to increase the duties of
the school room 1ms of late taken
paternalistic but withal practical turn
in the direction of manual training and
of bread-winning clerical pursuits, in
preference to a turn for the useless
The surprise which visitors express
because Scranton has done little or
nothing In this direction is natural iu
view of the progress so common else
where; but we hold it to be a point in
Scranton's favor that Individual and
orgaulzed philanthropy is hero ready
to do its proper duty in this matter
without foisting it upon the great mass
of taxpayers. The purposed establish
meut of night industrial classes by the
Young Men's Christian association is
an instance in point. The endow
nient, here, of an Institution similar to
the Drexel institute in Philadelphia,
would be another, aud this is not an
impossible expectation. In many
ways our churches and charities are
reaching into this field of industrial
education and accomplishing, each
year, a greater work. We believe this
to be a superior method of reaching
the desired end than to add new bur
dens to the taxpayers through the
overcrowding of our free public schools.
It comes natural to expect the elective
school directors to doeverythliig asked
of them; but is not the habit of asking
new things getting pretty large these
The letter of George B. Smithing
in last nigut'8 rruiu condemning the
Printing committee of the Scranton
Board of Trade forgoing to a Delaware
firm of advertising hucksters to get the
Dounrs annual report printed is timely.
If this course was decided unnn l.
cause of the belief that half-tone print-

The Lingering Embers.
The Eichmond Times is nothing, if
not frank. After taking exception to
IIeuryVatterson's eloquent speech at
Pittsburg inviting the Grand Army of
the Republic to hold its next national
eucampmeut in Louisville, the Times
This subject should not be diseased at
11 unless it is treated with entire frank
ness and candor, and this leads no, there
fore, to Bay that we serious 7 Question
the propriety of the Grand Army of the
nepuouc uoimng iu meetings in a south
ern city. The Confederate soldier has en
tire respect for the Union soldier, and he
(rives bim credit for the courage which he
showed In battle. Not only so. but when
an individual Confederate soldier meets
with an individual Union soldier thev
commune together with that cordiality
wmcn always exists Between men wno re
spect enoh other. But a re-union of the
Grand Army of tbe Kepublia is a marshall
ing in ranks of what was once the armed
force that met ns in hundreds of battles
and finally overcame aud anbdued us.
When that occurs in a southern city it is
a presentation to us again of the hand
that smote us. Tbe individual Union sol
dier presents no such idea, but tbe seried
rauks of tbe old army, with Its tattered
banners and ragged uniforms, inevitably
recalls to the miud the triumph of the vic
tor and tbe humiliation of the vanquished.
The graveyard of one's enemy Is not a
good place for the celebration of one's tri
umphs over him. We cannot, therefore,
solicit tbe Grand Army of the Repuulio to
bold its re-unions iu a Confederate city, as
tbe place where it will find "the most ab
solute obliteration of nil that we want to
forget." without sacrificing a certain
amount of our self-respect without invit
ing an occasion which will be necessarily
humiliating to us, and one which must
necessarily arouse feelings that would not
be welcome to our guests. ,
Having said this much, the Times is
disposed to relent a little ou Colonel
Wattersou, and to concede that the
following extract from his Pittsburg
oration contain "noble aud patriotic
sentiments" which have its "heartiest
The purpose 'which brought me hero, the
thought and hope of those who sent me,
is wholly, purely national. We, like you,
love our country. Our dearest aspiration
is to see it great and strong. It has weath
ered all tbe dangers that In times past as
sailed feudal systems and dynasties. It
has weathered all the dangers that sprang
from the peculiar 'conditions of onr being,
tne aark suaaow 01 slavery, ana tne oale
ful Influence of disunion, tbe conflict of
jurisdiction between the state and tbe
federal power, and the confusion attend
ant upon disputed Interpretations of tbe
orgauio law. The issues that made a war
of sections possible have passed away.
They cau never be resuscitated, But every
age, as every individual, has its own prob
lems to solve, ha own crosses to bear, and
those who are to oome alter us who have
already arrived upon tbe scene will need
to meet, as wt have met, the responsibili
ties of life. The best heritage that we can
leave to those into whose hands we must
ere long commit the future, is this good
knowledge, that wnat ainerenoei exist
upon tbe territory embraced by the United
States, vast as it is, are purely looal and
external: that Massachusetts and Missis
sippi are, in reality, convertible terms, and
that it needs but ten ,uays ana a change or
change of raiment to convert a typical
Vermonter into a typical Texan. I deolare
this as the sum of my own observation
and experience as the result of great and
varied opportunities for reviewing and
studying the character of our people from
ocean to ocean I declare It simply, earn
estly and shall maintain it always, Should
any one ask you whether I believe It, I beg
yon to tell him that I know it, and have
seen it pat io the'test and proven many
and many a time. Upon it I rest the case
of the nation against it bigots. If the
future is to be as glorious as tbe past, it
must be universally realized and .conceded,
illustrated by common consent and asso-
elation, illuminated by a nationality going
back for its inspirations to Bunker . Hill
and Yorktown, and taking Up the old,

It were useless to quarrel with our
Richmond contemporary over its dis
like of the symbols of a preserved
union. It is old in its faith and it will
not be converted this side of the grave.
Like the Rev. Dr. R. C. Cave, of St.
Louis, who, at the Richmond Memo
rial Day exercises last spring, deified
disunloulsm as a righteous cause sub
dued only by might, and who, at St
Louis one week ago, repeated the same
thoughts in a new verbal dressing, it
belongs to an expiring generation.
The new life and the new thought of
the new south which has arisen upon
the ruins of slavery and under the
shadow of the Stars aud Stripes, will
have larger views upon this subject
and fewer sores to heal.
Indulgence in quinine will pro
duce a ringing sensation in the head.
This fact may explain some things
that have seemed, at times, mysterious.
Before the campaign is over friends of
Candidate Merrlileld will no doubt be

Chairman Robert P. Robinson, of Wilkes
Bnrre, has issued a stirring appeal to the
Republican electors of Luzerne county
urging upon them the necessity of making
aotive preparations for the fall campaign.
After eloquently reviewing the national
deceptions and shortcomings of tbe Demo
cratic party the address coucludes by ask
ing, "How, indeed, can this party, which
bus by incompetency to deal with public
questions and perfidy in the discbarge of
Bolemn obligations, and d ishonesty in its
dealings with individuals, brought ruin
upon tbe manufacturers, farmers, lumoer
men and planters of the United States,
and paralysis of death upon all business,
have the face to appear before an Intelli
gent people to ask for anything, much
less an endorsement of their imbe
cility aud crime!1 You, as voters, owe a
c uty to yourselves and your country. It
it to put aside all business and record
your ballot as a solemn protest against the
Democratlo party and its works. Your
brethren In Maine and Vermont have
spoken it in tones that cannot be mis
taken. Let ns do our part, and hundreds
of honest voters, who have heretofore
been identified with Democracy, stand
ready to assist us in swelling the tremend
ous vote that will inevitably sweep this
dishonest and imbecile party into the
depths of oblivion." -
The Harrisburg Patriot of 'Wednesday
said: "Lieutenant Governor Watres came
to Harrisburg yesterday from his home at
Scranton to secure a charter for a mining
company in wbieh he, ex-Congressman
Amerman and other residents of that pro
gressive city are Interested. The lieu
tenant governor is giving up all his time
to the practice of law and directing the
affairs of the multitude of private enter
prises at Scranton in which he is inter
ested, and rarely comes to Harrisburg un
less for the transaction of poblio or pri-
vaie Business. 1119 nepuDiicans 01 Lacka
wanoa county will hold their primaries
next Sntordiiy for the nominntlon of a
senatorial candidate to succeed Senator
McDonald, Democrat. There is a strong
sentiment among tbe party workers iu
rnvor or the nomination of air. Watres,
He has been in public life the past twelve
years first, as senator aud then as lieu
tenant governor and prefers to retire to
private iifo at tbe expiration of bis term
in January. If he is nominated it will be
against his advice, but it is thought he
will not refuse to accept. He expects to
make a few speeches in the campaign this
fall for his friend, Hastings."
Two days ago Thomas C. Piatt aaid at.
Vice-President Morton would be nomin
ated ror governor or New York on tbe
first ballot by a vote of 533. Next dv
part of the prediction was verified. Mor
ton got 532f. Speaking of Piatt, a Scran
ton politician yesterday drew this com
parison: "They sometimes liken Piatt to
Quay. In point of organizing ability,
however, Quay can give Piatt ace, face
aud trumps, and yet beat bim out. Piatt
is unrivalled during the excitement of a
convention ana can manipulate thinus
that other men would deem impossible.
He lacks, however. Quay's steady and
systomntic grasp on the work of organiza
tion, yuay never loosens to:d of the
reins, flatt takes things easy between
campaigns and executes a Garrison finish
at the proper moment. Piatt is lynx-eyed,
sharp-tongued and dramatic. Quay Is
silent, cool and imperturbable. Another
funny thing. Piatt couldn't be elected r mrl
supervisor; Quay could win any elective
position wituin tne girt or Penn6ylvaninns.
There is a feeling of sympathy and ad
miration for Quay: for Piatt the feeling is
wholly one of dread and wonder."
The state convention of the Democrat!.-
society at Altocna, called for October 11
12, will be a monstor affair according to
the present arrangements. Secretary John
D. Worraan states that tbe attendance
may run over 2,000 in number. Candidate
William M. gingerly has signified hi in
tention to be present, anif those on tin,
state ticket will also be there, with hea d
quarters at tbe Logan House. The local
commiteee is hard at work preparing for
tbe reception of leading Democrats all

up hotel quarters at Altoona and will bj
