McKinley's Counter Attack.
When the Ohio Democratic convert
tion pronounced for free silver coinage
ana bragged that it was a Democratio
administration which repealed the
Sherman silver-purchase clause. Gov
ernor McKiuley saw a splendid chance
to counter; and he has improved it by
asking the Democrats what their ad
V. ministration has done to restore silver
to its old place as a money metal. Thus
ne corners them and they dare not an
- The Democracy is trying desperately
to straddle this currency problem. Out
In Nebraska Thursday the Democratic
state convention split outright, one
wing going for free and unlimited sil
yer coinage, and the other declaring
just as radically for a sold basis. " In
such a situation, with the Democratio
president firm in favor of gold mono
metallism, Is it not absurd for the De
mocracy of Ohio to try to pose as the
mend of sliver? What can it do for
silver? What hope can it offer to the
, producers or the white metal?
It is noteworthy, as a trend or the
times, that Governor McKinley, in
nearer touch than are we with west
ern Bentiment, does not underestimate
that sentiment's strength. He merely
says tnat the Democracy is trying to
deceive the west; and declares, what is
clear to all fair observers, that "free
and unlimited coinage of silver is not
the crystallized will of the Democratio
party, and it will not be. The party
that has struck silver down and given
it the severest blow it ever had cannot
be relied upon to give that metal hon
In the utter absence of any reason
for such action, common council's
threatened prohibitive tax on theatri
cal performances looks very much like
&4 invitation to be "seen." Common
cduncil, it strikes us, has played this
burlesque far enough.
Sophistry's Day Ended.
'It must be kept In mind." writes
T. F. Monahan, "that wage earners do
not sell commodities: they sell labor
In order to buy commodities. If the
price of those commodities are in
creased by protective tariffs, so-called,
their wages are to that extent de
creased. For instance, a workingman
receives $2 a day. That is his wages
in money. But money is only a me
dium for making exchanges. He did
not actually work for that money, but
for what that money would exchange
for food, clothing, etc. Now, if the
thing for which he exchanges his f 2
were increased in price 50 per cent by
the McKinley law, his actual wages
were reduced by that measure. And
that Is ut whatMcKinleyism has done
for the American laborer."
Indeed? Then how comes It that
the senate commission, composed
equally of Democrats and Republicans,
found that under the McKinley law
while wages were high and labor pretty
steadily employed, the prices of com
modities were the lowest in our history?
It doesn't take much to refute Mr.
Monahan's false premise and equally
false conclusions. He is dealing with a
preconceived theory, to accommodate
wnicli he distorts the facts. The Amer
lean wage-earner, more practical, turns
to his cash book and his ledger and
finds that whereas, under the McKln
ley law, he got steady work at , fair
wages thus earning a comfortable liv
ing; since Democracy came into power
those wages have fallen, that employ
ment has slackened or stopped and it's

One year aoo, Senator Voorhees,
as clmirmau of the finance committee,
was making the welkin ring with his
denunciations of the free silver pirates
of the west. Now, out on the Hoosier
hustings, he is unleashing the scor
pions of his wrath against the avari
cious gold bugs and heartless Shylocks
of the east. Senator Voorhees never
tethers himself permanently to one
side of a debatable issue. All Uesh is

Idyllic Innocence Abroad.
There can be no particular objection
to Professor Wilson feasting at the
expense of the London chamber of
commerce, notwithstanding the im
policy of the event; but Americans
have a fair right to object when the
professor tries to settle his score by un
settling scores of industries in tills
country. When free lunches have to
go baud in hand with free trade, it is
time we should keep our itinerant
Democratic statesmen on homo rations.
Nothing else quite so idyllic; nothing
quite so blissfully and unconsciously
disingenuous aul idiotic lias been
printed in several generations us is the
published synopsis of Chairman Wil
son's speech of Thursday evening.
am quite sure," the generous chairman
re quoted as Having said, "that our
protective policy has already served to
promote the trade of other nations
and, if continued, it would still further
promote such trade and pre-eminently
your own. Our protectionists have
been building defenses to keep you and
other nations from competing with us
n our home market. The tariiF re
formers are breaking down the de
fenses. Let us compete in all the
markets of the world."
This is the essence and the purport
of ail his long and supremely child
like address. It reveals the professor
at his best as a philanthropist whoso
charity begins everywhere except at
home; and whose idea of governmental
duty takes in every nation except the
American nation. We are sorry for
the professor's sake that he should be
thus impractically given to interna
tional good hearted ness; for, if he could
only be persuaded to care for his own
family, his own community and his
own countrymen, we are certain he
would make an excellent citizen. We
are sorry, too, for poor Mr. Merriiield,
whose protectionist bluffls thus made
twice as difficult to execute.
But when this is said, all is said.
For the party and the policy that wan1

Americans keep only the shells, there
can be but one emotion; and that

Stop Obstructing the Streets.
The streets of Scranton belong to the
people of Scranton. It is to the ad
vantage of the people of Scranton to
have better street car tracks, better
heating appliances, finer business
blocks and all the other accessories of
municipal progress. For that reason,
ordinances exist giving to all who wish
to obstruct the streets for advantageous
public purposes, the privilege of doing
so, subject to reasonable restrictions.
But it was never contemplated that
these obstructions should become gen
eral and permanent
There is a tendency just now to over
do the upheaval of these streets. This
tendency has become a nuisance. No
doubt those responsible for it have not
realized how greatly they annoy the
public. But the decision . of Street
Commissioner Klrst to inforce the law
uniformly and consistently cannot be
regarded as unfair to any particular
offender; and it will be most heartily
sustained by a long suffering but at
last impatient public.
It would have been better for
Banker Iiockafellow bad he made no
explanation of his losses, if the one
which he has wrltteu is to be accepted
as his best possible effort along that
line. To say that he let $200,000 or
more dribble through his fingers with
out knowing when, where or how it
went is to confess to a degree of incom
petency even further removed from
business principles than Mr. Rockafel
low's system was supposed to be. One
could sympathize with a banker who
had lost after doing his best to win,
but there is little patience for the man
who loses confidential deposits because

The Wilkes-Barre News-Dealer tries
to evade the point by such sorties as

That being the case the esteemed editor
is nanny to blnme for defending their in-
e res is. .
No one complains against "equal
taxation." The income tax, however,
is unequal taxation. It f-ets honestly
acquired wealth up as a target for spe
cial and unfair legislative spoliation,
e will suppose, for sake of illustra
tion, that the Income of the editor of
the News Dealer is only $3,999 a year
ot course, it really Is more than that
Would he then claim it was right for
him to "deadhead" his way through
the tax-collector's office while his next
door neighbor, whose income is a dollar
greater, has under the new tariff law
to step up to the captain's office and
lay down eighty hard, round dollars?
Nothing can be fairer than justice,
It is just for all men to be taxed pro
portionally. But it is not just for
one class to levy legalized blackmail
upon another class, simply because
they have a little brief authority. Tho
masked burglar with his pistol is in
majority when ordering the frightened
householder to stand and deliver. But
burglary is not justice; and the class
income tax is nothing more nor less
than bold burglary with the penalties
temporarily left off.
