It will be agreeable news to progres

are bright for the city soon ito have a
first-class paid fire department. On
another page The Tribune explains how
this Important forward step is likely to
be taken, and that, too, with little if
any exitra expense to the city. Hut
even if the expense were larger than It
seems likely to be, the enterprise would
deserve unstinted commendation, as an
investment which would return itself to
the Investors tenfold.
The establishement of a paid depart
ment would not mean that the present
volunteer lurce nau noi uone magnitl

the warm gratitude of all our citizens,
It would merely mean that Instead of
expecting these heroic volunteers to do
manly service at great risk without pay
they wouAl be regularly and even more
effectively organized on a business
basis. If to 'this should be added, in
course of time, a pension system for dls

Meaning of Free Coal.
The Canadian Manufacturer pub
lishea an (interesting review Of the past
year operation of the Dominion Coal
company, nrra 16,500,000 Corporation
which re-echoes Mr. Cleveland's im
. passioned demand for free coal. In ten
and one-half months, according to the
Manufacturer, the Dominion company
mined 834,019 tons of Nova Scotlan coal
Upon this output, ."whjch cost $93S,
236.73. a profit of $231,162.71 was made
and an additional profit of $103,267.93
was matte in transporting the same

enormous profit, particularly when it is
remembered that these results were
obtained In the operations of the first
year, when the business must have
been attended with many difficulties."
The Manufacturer adds:. "Another no
ticeable fact In-these reports' is that
the product of the mines of this com
pany can be placed at tidewater, ready
to be loaded Into vessels, for $1.11 per
tonf for Mr. Whitney states that the
cost of thus placing his 834,019 'tons
was $929,278.52. That Nova Scotia coal
will be a powerful competitor with

lowing: The dlfrtance from Loulsburg,
Nova Scotia, to Boston, is about equal
to the distance from Newport News,
Va., or Norfolk to Boston about 700
miles. The average price of coal at
Newport News for the past four years,
1890-1893, was $2.38 per ton; the average
ocean freight from that shipping port
to Boston during the same time was
98.8 cents per ton, and the average
price of coal free on board ship In Hob
ton was $3.30. These figures are based
,! on $1 per ton, the Belling price of coal
free oh cars at mines In West Virginia.
At a valuation of $1.11 per ton at LculS'
burg, and the freight from there to
Boston being tlhe same as from New
port News, and all other expenses the
same from either place, It is evident
that the Nova Scotia coal can be de
livered In Boston for $1.27 per" tori less
than the Virginia coal! but from this
must be de'ducted the ilury Imposed
ujmn the foreign article."
Mr. Cleveland's demand for fre coal
would, If heeded, be a line thing for
this Nova Scotia syndicate, undoubt
edly; but It is not ru: pHwlns that tho
people vf 'the American coal fields do
not relish' It.

More Reapportionment Tacts.
Our esteemed contemporary, the
Wllkcs-Uarro Record, discussing the
milng reapportionments, hus this to
say concerning the pnaent allotment
f senators: "The population of the
tate being S,248..r.74, the ratio for repre
sentation Is 2C.;4.'. I, sing this l.ttio
Allegheny county would have Us repre
sentation Increased from sixteen to
twenty-one. Ulair, Cumbria, Clearfield,
efferson, Lackawanna, I.uxcine an !
Northumberland would be entitled to
one ndilitional representative. i ne
counties -of Adams, Bedford, Bradford,
Chester, Crawford, Columbia, lluuliiig-
ton, Lancaster, Lawrence, Mercer,
Schuylkill and Wayne would be re
duced one member in their representa
tion. Seven counties would gain twelve
members, and twelve counties would
lose twelve members. The legislative
apportionment, however, presents none
of the striking features which ?o
trongly urge a new apportionment us
do the Inequalities of the antiquated
senatorial apportionment of 1874, under
which we are now represented. These
Inequalities are best illustrated by the
following table, which shows the pres
ent senatorial districts with the coun
ties of which they ate comprised, the
population of each district and the
average population of tho several dis
tricts where a county includes more

'Total population, 1890.
"A few moments' study of this table
will show the glaring Injustice of the
present apportionment, a relic handed
down from 1874. During the Interval
that has elapsed many of the counties
have grown rapidly and some bate
retrograded in population, until there
Is no trace of any relation between
population ana representation. For
example, the Twentieth, and Twenty
first, which include Luzerne and Lacka
wanna counties, have a total population
of 342,937, or an average population of
171,499. The Seventeenth -, district,
Lebanon county, has a population of
only 4S,05l. The citizens' of Luzerne
and Lackawanna counting, if given
representation in the- state senate In
proportion to Lebanon, would have
seven senators Instead of two. This
may seem an extreme case, but the
Thirty-first district is nearly as bud,
the counties of Milillii, Perry und
Juniata, with a combined population of
but 62,897. Luzerne und Lackawanna
on this basis would have five Instead of
two senators. Crawford constitutes a
single district with a population of but
63,203." . l
me itecoru suggests a scheme for
reapportioning the senatorial districts
that, exclusive of Lebanon county
which is under a kind of constitutional
ban, would leave Bucks county, with
0.248 population, the smallest district
in the commonwealth, und Schuylkill,
wltih ir.3,7f7 Inhabitants, the largest
while eight districts would have almost
exactly the one-fiftieth ratio, 104,971
The Record's plan would give Luzerne
two senators and Lackawanna one. It
wouiu yoKe tnose two oni-tlme ene
mies, Bradford and Susquehanna, to
gether imto one district; would put
Wayne with Carbon, Tike and Monroe
and Wyoming It would Join -with Sulli
van, Columbia and Montour. Such nn
arrangement would be eminently non
partisan! and it is evident that the
lines of suggested division would ma
terlally Improve the present inequall
ties of senatorial representation.
This subject, even more lmportan
thun the congressional reapportion
ment, will come before the Incoming
legislature for revision; and it will need
attentive and experienced considera
tion. Our contemporary does not over
estimate the Inequalities of the present
apportionment. The territory now em
bruced in the Twentieth and Twenty
first districts should have at least three
senators; anything less would const I
tute a needless Injustice.

Mr. Cleveland suys the treasury will
this year be $20,000,000 "shy;" but the
liunces are that the deficit will reach

VIEWS OF THE .MESSAGE.
Philadelphia Press: "President Cleve
land's latest message will completely dis
appoint those who expected a striking,
suggestive and uggresslve munlfesto. A
more dull, tepid, sterile, Inane paper It
would be Impossible to Imagine."
Philadelphia Record: "Tho message Is
very plain, everyday document, written
In the usual style', but hardly with the
usual care und finish of the president's
previous state papers."
Philadelphia Inquirer: "It is useless to
argue with u mini so stone blind that he
iinnot see. President Cleveland has
nothing to lose. His political career is
about run, ami he sticks by his wild und
destructive theories In the face of the
tremendous blow administered through
the ballot box"
Philadelphia Times: "The one para
graph on thi! subject of maintaining the
credit of the government will do more to
Inspire confidence throughout the world In
the Integrity of the Ainerieun people,
than any deliverance that has rnme either
from congress or the executive dining the
Senator Brlce: "There are, I believe,
thirty-eight pages of the message, of
which thirty-seven pages are figures,
while the remaining page Is given up to
urging tho adoption of the Baltimore
lliianclul plan. 1 have not had time to
verify tho figures, but as for tho Balti
more plan It strikes me as a pure dream.
Its adoption would certainly demoralize
the finances of the country."
Rochester Post-Kxpreps: "If the gov
ernment wants to provide a new currency
for the people, let It leuve the Issuing of
circulating notis to private enterprise, or
lso Issue Its own notes directly und be
directly responsible for them. Let It not
lend its credit to banking corporations.
Senator Toller: "I cannot see that the
message offers any relief to the country,
and It appears to me as If the president
fulled entirely to comprehend the iina'i-
clul or pulltlcul conditions."
Senator Chundler: "The message is a
very commonplace document. It Ignores
the fact that we have a great silver ques-
Jon on hand und It utmost Ignores the
'arlff question, exrept ill referring to tho
'popgun' bills anil In making the absurd
proposal of admitting free ships In older
to help American shipping."
Senator Hansbrougq: "I had heard
that the president was suffering from the
gout and tha message ennliruiH II. lie
recommends a decrease In the turllT, not
withstanding the deficit, and makes no
recommendation for the Increase of reve
nues." Representative Dalzell: "(.'lie president

whoso Importance to tho country can
