Law at Last Victorious.
We must confess to a feeling of In
difference whenever sentiment seeks to
soften the fatu of a convicted mur
derer. Capital punishment may nut be
the highest expression of human wis
dom; but in any event it Is the law of
the land, and those who deliberately
take, human life deserve to be punished
ns the law directs. No doubt the nice
proprieties of the situation would have
been better subserved In this locality
had outraged law seized upon an earlier
und better domesticated violator for the
purpose of setting an "awful example,"
Instead of seizing upon the murderous
newcomer, Franz Uezek. But that Is a
delicate point of speculative philosophy
quite foreign to the rough law and the
Errors of the past cannot be corrected
by the commission of new errors of to
day. The unpleasant truth is that mur
der, during the seventeen years of
Lackawanna county's separate exist
ence, grew under the stimulus of re
peated acquittals from an uncommon
to a common crime, and the whole com
munity suffered accordingly. Whether
a local hanging or two will obliterate
the economic and social conditions In
which this crime Is generated remains
to be seen; but there can be no possible
questioning of the assertion that it will
materially benefit the county to have
the knowledge go forth that law Is tit
last taking measures to obtain tho mas
tery over crime and that the sympathy
dodge has finally been played out.
The personality of this fellow Bezok,
in this connection, is Infinitely unim
portant. It would have been better, no doubt,
had some of the pioneer murderers of
our fair county been introduced to
twisted hemp; but since wise Jurors
thought otherwise, let us not begrudge
what late justice the gods deign to
The Nicaragua Canal.
The Xicuraguan Canal company is a
private enterprise, badly managed and
notoriously impecunious. Its organizers
were not philanthropists. They were
men who enjoy a considerable reputa
tion for sleekness and cunning in the
manipulation of bonds and stocks. It
has been intimated, from time to time,
that much of the apparent popularity
of the Nicaragua canal scheme, under
the management of this company, could
be traced to gifts of stock to editors and
legislators. We do not know that this
Is true, although we are half Inclined to
suspect It to be true. It was true of the
Vnlon Pacific railroad at one time. It
was true, in France, of the Panama
canal; and human nature is probably
the same today as it was in the early
seventies or In the early eighties. In
any event, the Nlcaruguan Canal com
pany possesses an Immense amount of
self-conlldence when it goes to congress
with a proposition virtually asklngthe
United States government to guarantee
Its bonds, fertilize Its now -worthless
stock and All Us now empty pockets,
for no other reason in the world than
that a canal across the isthmus of Nlca
ragua would be a good thing, and
should, therefore, be pushed along
blindly and without thought of ulMmat?
We are not insensible of the fact that
both political parties have in their plat
forms declared in favor of government
control of this canal; that President
Cleveland first and 'President Harrison
afterward, in messages to congress,
have strongly advocated the indorsing
of this private speculation's securities
by 'the federal government; and that
today the oanal company finds able
champions at Washington among Ite
publicans and Democrats, alike, with
out distinction of party. The eminence
of this support, however, does not deter
us from planting ourselves squarely and
obstinately upon the proposition that
the United States government ought to
kick these bond-mongers out of Wash
ington and consider the canal question
Independent of their selfish interests
If they have embarked in a losing In
vestment, vainly expecting to tap the
treasury at Washington whether they
ever dig; a square foot of earth in Nica
ragua or io$, lef them pocket, their
losses and know better next time. The
people have about got sick and tired of
tholr Incessant raids on congress, none
the less raids for being cloaked behind
the spurious plea that If Unclu Sum
does not dig this big ditch some other
It should not be inferred from these
candid remarks that we are opposed to
the Nicaragua canal. We are not. On
the contrary,, a trans-lsthmlan water
way wt or near the route now proposed
Is a vital necessity. It should be built,
owned and bossed by the United States
of America; and not a penny's worth of
Is should be built, owned or bossed by
any otiher power. In building it, own
ing It and bossing It, this government
should admit no partners. Least of all
should It be asked to stand godfather
to a pack of Wall street promoters who
have tried their level best to make the
canal an outlet for federal funds, to be
drained eventually into their own pock
ets. The essence of our proper policy
In this direction, as regards Its inter
national aspect. Is well voiced by the
New York Sun, Which condenses Secre
tary Blaine's celebrated letter of Nov.
19, 1891, to Lord Granville, then English
Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.
as follows: "The xeluslve control of
any trans-isthmian waterway between
the Atlantic and Pacific states of the
Union, Is clearly recognized in this
country as the first and most obvious
necessity of national policy. It is a
Ight founded on the laws of national
existence, and as long as the itintlnct of
self-preservation is left in our people. It
will contine to be asserted and main
To control such a canal means to own
It, directly.- It does not mean to waste
time, honor and money oil a lot of otock-

canal shall iimoiint to after they have

An Excellent Example.
The example set by Arthur Frothing
ham in presenting to the county a full
grown muple tree, which hus been
planted In the court house square near
the Columbus monument, 13 one worthy
both of commendation and imitation.
If every resident of Lackawanna coun
ty who has held u county ofllce, from
the ex-Judges down to tfle present re
tiring officials, would each present a
similar tree, and plant It properly, the
court house square would, In a year or
two, be In real fact a graceful park.
There are doubtless many citizens
who have never held office but who
would be suflkiently public spirited to
donate memorial trees In their own
names, or in honor of children or
friends. If each secret or other frater
nal society in the city would provide a
tree, planting it with appropriate dedi
catory exercises, the cause of arbori
culture would receive a most desirable
Impetus, while the city or county would
be the Immediate gainers. We talk a
great deal about the poetry and spirit
uality of Arbor Day. Are we prepared
to practice what we preach ?
Mr. Frothlngham, with his character
istic enterprise, has pointed the way.
Will his initiative avail to give Scran
tonlans a shaded, central park?
Pltitston is at last a city in name.
Let It also become one in fact. The
first step will necessitate a thorough
cleaning out of the political spores
and mollygrubs who now drain its
Stop Petty Prosecutions.
The Wlllinmsport Sun opportunely
observes that there "Is a remedy under
the state laws for the evil that Is found
in every quarter sessions court, and
which comes under the head of bar
ratry. Barratry Is where an Individual
has un abormal tendency to bring suits
at law without having just cause of ac
tion." The Sun says of the Lycoming
county court what Is equally applicable
to our own court. It says "there have
been several cases In which the prose
cutor had not a scintilla of fact upon
which to base his prosecution. The
court was annoyed by the presenta
tion of these cases and the taxpayers of
the county must pay the costs. The
remedy for this fooling with the dignity
of the court should lie promptly ap
plied. The prosecutor who brings petty
nnd senseless suits to grutlfy his spite
or annoy his neighbor should be
mulcted in the costs or be sent to jail
for a period long enough to prove to
him that a court of justice is not a
plaything for his especial delectation.
Tho magistrate when lie knows that a
suit Is brought through spite, should
refuse to become u party to this sys
tem of making tho court ridiculous. If
the magistrate fails to nppreiilate the
matter in its proper light the court
should tench him his duty In whatever
way seems most effectual to the court
It costs tho taxpayers a large amount
every term to dispose of the legitimate
business of the criminal court, and nil
business that partakes of anything else
should bo kept out of It."
To tills lucid presentation of the case
little need be added, except that a
geneial stiffening or the judicial back
bone In this direction would be hcartilv
appreciated by an overtaxed public.
Non-partisan management of muni
cipal affairs will come slowly in this
country; but H will come. And when
it gets lure, It will stay.
The fleanest Man.
The Individual who recently duped a
lot of poor working girls In New York
city by a bogus employment agency Is
probably the meanest scamp on record,
and the -girls who gave 1 each as
security that they would be on hand to
accept positions that they had been
engaged to fill have just cause for
wrath in finding that the rascal has
skipped with their money. The ex
perience of the swindled servant girls,
however, is but another Illustration of
the folly of trusting one's money in the
hands of strangers. It Is generally a
safe rule to shun any position that re
quires cash in advance. At this period
labor Js not so scarce as .to need a cash
guarantee that a person engaged for
a position will accept at the proper
time. And the more lucrative the po
sition gives promise of becoming the
more careful one should be about ad
vaiK'lng money upon expected returns.
The malls dally, it is said, are flooded
with letters, answering the tempting
advertisements by which this or that
fraud Is baiting d,ures, and hundreds of
dollars In small sums weekly go to sup
port the rascals who exist upon the
gullibility of poor people who arc seek
Ing to better their condition. The un
fortunate who is seeking a market for
his labor will do well to pass by the en
gagement that can be secured only by
the advancement of cash. In ninety
nine cases out of a hundred the prom
ised position is a myth.
Dr. Shattuck, a Harvard overseer, de
fends foot ball by saying: "Rather let us
sacrifice a few bones than give our young
men the idea tluit they must be strong
but careful not -to expose themselves to
the danger of getting hurt. The time
may come when Americans may again
be called upon to contend against other
nations and If we are to make babtes
of our youths the imprint of our coun
sels will be plainly seen upon them.
Lcit us rather make a point of seeing
that they learn to play fairly; that they
learn to govern their brute instincts,
that only ithose who are liable to do
this are permltited o Indulge In rough
play." All of which Is very interest
ing, but alas, Irrelevant. Foot ball, as
played in this year of grace, does not
di-scend to such line discriminations.
It breaks bones quite impartially and

CHATS HY THE WAY.
Did you ever consider that there Is one
great American amusement In which Eu
ropean specialties have no plane? That is
the national giimo of base ball, in tho-
atrk-ul, operatic, gymnastic, racing, boat
ing and other enterprises we look across
the water for models. In the operatic an!
theatrical world enpeclally the cream of
the business Is monopolized by foreign
artists, mutineers ami companies, and In
many sports of the field America patterns
al ter the mother country. Hut In the live
ly game of base ball the foreign artist Is
unknown. The sporting men of other
lands know nothing of the delights of the
bleaching boards, ami the inspiring sen
tence "play ball" has no charm for their
ears. It is true that base bull, like the
stage, needs elevating In some respects.
Itowdyism often predominates on tho
Held and grand stand alike; but of lute
there has been a disposition on the part of
the management of various clubs to frown
upon the touirh element, and It Is now nec
essary for an upplicant to behave like a
gentleman upon the diamond If he wishes
to retain a position upon a nine, in any
of the recognized leagues.
Scranton was particularly fortunate last
seanon In securing good players who were
evidently not drafted from the slums, and
the gentlemanly behavior of the State
league club, ns well as the nine that
Joined tho Eastern league, caused favor
able comment everywhere. If there were
some means of curbing the local enthus
iast who finds it necessary to fill up on
poor whisky before he considers himself
in condition to enjoy a gnme, base ball
would be the most pleasant of amuse
ments. It is to be hoped that during the
coming season even greater efforts will
be made to preserve good order upon the
ground, that lady admirers of the game
may feel that they can enjoy the sport
without being subject to Insult by being
obliged to listen to the foul language by
which the vagabond betrays his Identity
In a moment of enthusiastic forgetfulness.
