I In tariff legislation, as In aft other
matters, the Republican party moves
forward, not backward. The McKlnley
bill is a milestone of the past. It Is not
worth while Quarreling over ancient
history. Those Republican leaders who
are transfixed In adoration of the past
tense in the grammar of protection
should be loused from their useless
reverie and gently notified to move on.
Murder In the First Degree.
For the first time in the history of
Lackawanna county a jury on Satur
day returned a verdict of "murder in
the first degree." The case was that of
the commonwealth against Franz
Bezek, and there is every reason to be
lieve that in this case the verdict was a
Just one, entirely In accord with the
law and the evidence. It was nowhere
disputed that Bezek murdered the girl
whom he said he loved, but in his de
fense It was urged that he was insane
and that he killed Maria Kerzlc acci
dentally while she was endeavoring to
prevent him from committing suicide
because she rejected his suit.
The plea of Insanity does not appear
to have been taken seriously and the
fair weight of the evidence was against
the presumption that the killing was
accidental. On the other hand, there
Is every reason to believe that the mur
der was cool and premeditated. Bezek,
on the night before the murder, nego
tiated for the purchase of a revolver but
declared that the price was too high
and left the store. The next morning
he was apparently strengthened In his
murderous purpose and he returned to
the store and without any parleying
purchased the weapon and straightway
proceeded to the home of Miss Kerzlc
and killed her.
Never in the history of the county
lias there been it case that pointed more
clearly to deliberate, premedltatd tak
ing of human life, and it Is to the credit
Of the Jurors that they allowed no senti
mental reasons to sway them in the per
formance of their sworn duty. Jurors
are human and they hesitate long to re
turn a verdict that to them appears like
signing the death warrant of the ac
cused. It Is such considerations that
have swayed Lackawanna county
juries In the past, otherwise the hang
man would not have been cheated of
several murderers whom he hud a just
fight to claim.
It Is a false view for Jurors to take of
a cobo. The sentence the court may im
pose ought not to be considered In the
Jury room. The law and the evidence
should be the guides of the twelve men
who are sworn "to well and truly try"
a case; with the penalty that may fol
low their verdict they have nothing to
The moral effect of the verdict ren
dered Saturday will probably be bene
ficial. Human life Is held far too cheap
in this county by many of the foreign
element who feel thut every slight of
fered them calls for the employment of
a deadly weapon. They should be made
to understand that while the spirit of
the law In the United States Inclines to
the side of mercy. It can be stern and
unbending when the peace and safety
of a community thus demand, and can
mete out punishment commensurate
with the offense.
' The dollar that is invested in a hos
$ltal is a dollar put where it will do
untold and inestimable good. No mean
man ever gave a penny to a hospital.
Mo cynic, no misanthrope ever endowed

do these things a gentle man who has
a heart as well as a head, and a sense

' Out of fifty-seven names signed to the
petition of contest In behalf of Judge
Sittser, In Wyoming county, it is said
Upon excellent authority that forty rep

that of the fourteen persons who swore

pays taxes on real estate. In neither
list does there appear the name of a
Single Democratic leader of prominence,
the leaders evidently preferring to pull
their chestnuts out of the fire by means
pf other people's paws.
When It Is remembered, In this con
traction, that Judge Slttser's candidacy
ten years ago was distinctively par
tlsan, the failure of his present claim
to receive substantial, non-partisan in

private munificence in this direction
still has a clear field.
Don't Be in Too Great a Hurry.
AVe are not so sure that a short
session of the' next legislature Is as
desirable as Representative Lawrence
and some of his western colleagues ap
pear to believe. If the next legislature
intends to run away from Its duties, tin
adjournment about April 1 would be in
order; but If It desires to toe the
scratch, man-fashion, It will have
plenty of work to keep It thoroughly
busy until the middle of June or the
first of July.
Under Ihe biennial system, In a state
the size of Pennsylvania, it is little
short of madness to Imagine tnat a
collection largely of new legislative re
cruits, so heavily Republican In the ag
gregate as to form a most unwleldly
majority, can be "broken Into" the seri
ous business of reapportioning the
state into congressional, senatorial,
legislative and judicial districts; of dis
tributing fairly and equitably the large
surplus funds now idle in the state
treasury; of passing satisfactorily upon
the accumulated mass of bills for or
ugainat the state's multiplying corpor
ations, and of transacting the ordinary
legislative routine, all in three months.
There will be bills before this next ses
sion of unusual Importance. Compul
sory education will once more arise for
settlement. The new revenue measure
upon which the tax conference has
spent years of time and thought will
be presented for discussion. The ques
tion of pensioning judges, of erecting
new counties, of making Important al
terations In the laws governing mining,
of more effectual guarding the dairy
interests; of forest and cattle protec
tion -these, and scores of others of
equal Importance will come before the
legislature, in one form or another, and
ought not to be slighted.
It is, of course, a familiar remark
that the fault of legislatures lies In
their excessive industry. While, in the
abstract, 'this may be true, It remains
Indisputable that if we are to have any
new legislation whatsoever at the ap
proaching Harrlsburg session, It should
be carefully considered, and not bolted
through In art unthinking eugerness to
force an early adjournment. The Re
publican party, by the practical una
nimity of Its control of this session,'
stands committed to give to the people
of this state the best session's work
they have yet had. The purely parti
san aspect of the session's deliberations
has, by this Immense Republican pre
ponderance of public favor, been to a
large extent canceled in advance. The
people, therefore, will expect careful,
earnest and painstaking work, along
common sense lines; and plenty of it.
The talk is now that Colonel John
A. Cockerlll will become general man
ager of the Asssoclated Press. The As-
soclated Tress doesn't deserve so good
Senators and the People.
Senator Turple believes that the elec-
tion of senators by a direct vote of the
people would purify legislation. The
logic which reaches .this conclusion Is
not without fault. A popular ballot
theoretically should be clean and pure
but practically It is probably quite as
corrupt, proportionally, as are the state
legislatures which It is proposed to de
prive of the elective prerogative. If
the people cannot be trusted to choose
faithful servants ut state capitals it Is
not easy to see how the matter would
be mended by giving there a direct
voice in the selection of all their serv
ants at the national capital.
The very purpose and spirit of the
American constitution would be sub
verted by the proposed change. More
than a century's experience In self-government
has confirmed the wisdom of
the fathers in providing checks and
counter checks upon the often untamed
violence of the electoral mob. The di
vision of congress Into branches, one
directly responsible to the people and
charged, under the constitution, with
the Introduction of nearly all really Im
portant legislation directly affecting
the people the other responsible to the
legislatures of the various states and
Invested with the power to exercise the
calm and sober "Becond thought" which
Is so often the safety of common-sense
government, was not the hasty Impulse
pf a moment. It was the deliberate act
of men who had ransacked the constitu
tions of all ages and studied carefully,
In every available direction, the prob
lem of government of, by and for the
people. Before this careful work Is
torn down, let us be certain that we
can chunge it for the better.
It has been charged that the present
system of electing United States sena
tors Is responsible for the presence, In
the senate, of men who are Ignorant or
venal; men who have pandered to the
prejudices of the rabble or else bought
their preferment with gold. Assuming
that there are such men In congress, let
us ask ourselves which kind Is the more
dangerous the Ignorant rich man
whose only touchstone to political sue
cess is his money, or the unscrupulous
demagogue who flaunts any and every
principle likely to tickle the fitful popu
lar fancy of the hour? Taking the
worst types of each system, and com
paring them the "moneybags" sena
tor under the present system, and the
blatant senatorial demagogue who
would climb Into office upon waves of
popular prejudice which would be.the
more desirable? Which would be the
safer reliance In an hour of crisis?
Very obviously, it seems to us that the
mediocre Croesus would be less1 likely
to sanction revolutionary and ill-con
ldered measures of legislation than
would the man who would owe his po
litlcal existence to the constant satisfy
lng of Inflummable mob prejudice. By
nature and training, the former would
incline toward moderation and con
servatism while the latter would Just as
unerringly be predisposed toward erra
tic and extreme policies, A change
from the present system, conceding for
it the very worst that Is anywhere said
of it, to the system of direct election
would thus be simply a leap from the
frying pan Into the fire.
The trouble with the senators today
Is not In the manner of their election.
bad as that system may seem upon oc
casions. It is rather with the public
sentlmont which, by its prolonged in
difference to lax Immigration laws and
suffrage abuses, makes possible a po
litical condition which often prefers
wealth without brains to brains with
out wealth. The people can remedy
this trouble without tinkering with any
constitution other than their own.
"The judicial pension system is prac
ticed In almost every other civilized
country, it has been adopted by the
government at Washington In dealing
with the judges of the supreme court,
and It should be the rule of action In
every state which values the highest
standard of judicial honor. No narrow
conslderatons of parsimony and no old-
fashioned provincial notion that a
Judge Is simply a hired man. who should
be turned out as soon as he Is unfit for
duty and allowed to shift for himself,
should again Influence the legislature in
passing upon this wise and Just
measure of judicial reform. A good,
upright judge, who has held the scales
of Justice In even balance for twenty
one years to the honor and satisfaction
of the community, Is quite us much en
titled to the liberal treatment from the
commonwealth as the men who give up
their active lifetime to the army and
navy; and Pennsylvania will place It
self abreast of the intelligent senti
ment of the time regarding the Ju
diciary, If the Rlter bill shall become
the law of the state, as It should have
been long ago." Philadelphia Bulletin.

politically, would, it Is believed, be more

any event, the chances favor a brisk and

AN UNWISE STATUTE.
No better illustration of the evil effects
of class legislation can be found any
where than In the operations of the law
prohibiting the manufacture and sale of
Imitation butter. It must be conceded at
the outset that the proper thing would
have been for the legislature to have re
quired the sale of the new product known
aa oleomargarine under Its true name,
but the suggestion that at this day any
one who buys It Is either deceived or de
frauded by the dealer as to Its true char
acter Is absurd. The great mass of pur
chasers seek out the dealers knowingly
and for the very good reason that they
know they can set a wholesome and pal
atable quantity of "genuine dairy" and
at about half the price. The truth is oleo
Is preferred to second or third rate but
ter, not alono by people In moderate cir
cumstances, but by the well-to-do middle
classes, who have reasons for using it
other than the mere matter of economy.
This prohibitory law wqb passed through
most selllsh motives. It was based en
the police power of the stute to protect
the people against unwholesome and
fraudulent adulterations of food. The
churge that oleomargarine was In any
way deleterious to health was openly
challenged by experts who knew what
they were talking about, and no serious
attempt wus made to show that the pro
duct was unfit fur food. Indeed, It would
nut have been dlliU ult to demonstrate thut
oleo wub freer from objectionable ingred
ients than much of the lower grades of
butter. The real objert was to prohibit
a formidable competitor to the product of
the dairy, and although the law has been
on the statute books for almost a decade
It has most signally failed to stop the
Hdlu which has been steadily on the In
crease. It did drive- the manufacture
(which had already been begun In the
state) to other parts of the country,
thus Interfering with a business recog
nized ns legitimate In other states, and

The law has been sustained by the
highest Judicial authority, not upun Its
merits, be It noted, but because lto pass
age was a proper exercise of the police
power. Tho presumption ' was that the
lawmakers knew what they were doing
and that they acted from honest motives
when they pretended that the statute
was necessary for the protection of the
public health and to guard against fraud
and imposition. The law Is an abomina
tion, and It ought to be blotted out or
amended so as to permit both the manu
facture and sale of oleo as such. It Is not
worth a rush to the dulrymen, and Its
perpetuation will only furnish an oppor
tunity for harpies and spies to levy black
