Ex-5peaker Reed on Wealth.
Tn his speech before the graduating
class of Pierce's Business college, do
llvered In the Academy.of Music, Phlla
delphla, last Friday night, ex-Speaker
Thomns B. Reed revealed himself in
nomewhat new attitude. Laying aside
polities! he spoke most entertainingly
upon the subject of "Wealth" wealth
in the abstract; national, rather than
personal wealth. To this ordinarily
prosy subject he brought not only novel
ideas but also a gift of happy expres
elon which Illumined his address with
many readable features like that which
We shall quote:
How essential Increasing wealth Is to
Increasing progress this generation and
the one which has just passed away
nas nnd cotter enances to Know thun any
which preceded them for our century
the century of steam and electricity,
.Wealth makes possible steam cars and
electrical railroads and telephones. Notli
lng else can do It. If. in the old days of
Queen Elizabeth, all had ben known to
day, It would hu-,e. ben an utterly lisr-
)es knowledge. There was r.o' urealth
enough .in those days to make a rjilroaii
possible. Kverybodv was too pour to
travel, except the nobility ami gentry, and
they were too few to pay the enormous
cost of railroads. Let me give you a few
figures to show what I mean. The I'nion
Pacific railroad, which Is not very pros
perous, In the month of October lost past,
only one-twelfth of a year, took In J2,
600,000. Two millions and a half dollars
were the whole revenue of an entire year
of Queen Elizabeth. The people In that
pparsely, settled rettlon, beyond the Mis
sissippi and this side of the mountains,
were able to pay for one month's ser
vice the sum which governed the Iirltlsh
empire a whole year, three hundred years
ego. When I say to you that the gross
receipts of the railroads of the 1'nlled
Btates, even In this year of depression,
would have supported three hundred
kingdoms of Henry the Eighth, I have no
doubt I am ridiculously understating tho
facts. Why, your own Pennsylvania rail
road, on lines east of Pittsburg, In six
jiionths loBt by the business decrease,
twice two millions and a half.
We have not time nor space to fallow
Mr. Reed throughout his luminous and
lucid talk. We pause only to note that
he finds no room for 'discouragement In
the rapid rcent growth of the United
States In wealth. The fear that wealth
heralds decay he finds common to all
ages end civilizations. Yet wealth Is
the nursery of clvlliratlon. It not only
widens commerce and subjugates na
tural barriers to human progress, but.
to borrow the speaker's phraseology,
'wherever men, released from the sor
did pursuit of mere existence, have
striven to. satisfy 'their desires, the
struggle has called Into being Inventive
powers powers of intellect and Judg
ment, and the whole mental armory
and arsenal of progress. In your own
great state of Pennsylvania there are a
hundred great establishments which re
quire for their management and success
more brains than have been put Into
the governments of many an empire.
Nor U the eduoatlon and mental
growth confined ,to the heads of such
Treat establishments. What the fno
tory system and the meoh&nio arte
have done for the eduoatlon of the raeo
will bear full comparison with the wovk
of colloRes find churches. Not only lias
the accumulation of wealth rendered
possible shorter hours of labor, and
more leisure for all mankind, but the
still further accumulation will enable
the world, without loss of fulfilment f
its desires, to go still further In that di
rection In the not distant future."
This Is, in some respects, u new atti
tude for one to take who Is active and
prominent In politics. The traditional
view of the politician or the social re
former Is to grow fearfully Indignant
or gruesoniely lugubrious over the re
cent and rapid spread of a plutocracy
ind the .sure rush of our modern civili
zation downward toward degeneracy
and chaos. That Mr. Heed has the
courage and frankness to discard that
loose habit of demagogical speaking in
favor of calm candor and common
sense will, however, probably weigh In
his favor rather than to his detriment.
The Tribune does not agree with
Charles K. Daniels on the viaduct ques
tion; but It takes pleasure In testifying
to his worth and alertness, both as a
newspaper man und citizen. If Mr
Daniels Is a candidate for the common
ccuneil from the Fifth ward, we shall
hope to see him win.
Judges and Pensions.
There are picayune economists who
argue Dhat If judges are pensioned,
school teachers should be pensioned,
also. The comparison Is Inapt; if for
no other reason than that a pedagogue
Is at ample liberty to engage in busi
ness enterprises aside from his school
teaching, while a judge Is not at such
liberty, aside from his justice-dispensing.
Many teachers, without sacrifice
of their zeal or usefulness, become
well-to-do and even rich. Few judges
do, 'unless by Inheritance. They do not
save wealth out of their salaries; and a
wise publlo opinion decrees that they
must not earn it in channels likely
to lead to the courts In which they pre
The common sense of this judicial
pension movement Is well expressed by
the Philadelphia Times when It says
that "the man who serves twenty years
or1 more on the bench Is entirely un
fitted to resume the practice of his pro
fessions. If even his advanced years do
not preclude him from succeeding In
the practice of law, the labors and
methods inseparably connected with
judicial duties practically unfit him for
practice at the bar. It is not uncom
mon, therefore, to find judges who have
exhausted their manhood and physical
and mental powers In the faithful per
formance of their duties unfitted to
continue on the bench; unfitted for any
other pursuit, and without accumu
lated means to give them even a frugal
livelihood for the remainder of their
lives. This Is unpnrdonable on the
part of a great commonwealth whose
treasury Is overflowing with revenue,
and that expends millions in various
charities to provide for many who have
brought misfortune upon themselves
by profligacy or crime. The judicial
office is the most sacred of nil secular
positions In our government, and when
a man enters upon the duties of a judge
he should be entirely free from nil
temptation to seek political or pecuni
ary advancement outside of his' legiti
mate official ditties. If he were assured
of a competence after' having ex
hausted his powers In the administra
tion of justice, he would be entirely
free to devote his life to his responsible.
trust, and to perform Its duties In such
manner fls to merit the reward that a
great commonwealth should give to
those who have administered justice
between man nnd man with Integrity."
Whatever will tend to Improve the
fairness and Independence of our courts
will be worth Its cost, no matter what
the price. The position for Pennsyl
vania's to take Is that the integrity of
the bench must and shall be preserved.
The pensioning of judges after twenty
one years of acceptable service Is a
move prompted by well-considered mo
tives of public-Improvement. It should
become a law without opposition.
The 300,000 women of the west who
sent a petition to the sultan of Turkey
asking for the release of an Armenian
missionary who Is In exile on an oasis
In the Sahara desert, are evidently In
the dark In the matter of Turkish poll-
tics.. A petition of this nature not
backed by Oattling guns, would not

nations would become sources of In
justice If applied to Turkey. The im
mutable law of evolution foredooms
this barbaric government to demolition.
Why should the present powers try (o
postpone that Inevitable collapse?
The partition of Turkey among the
Christian powers is the only sure cure
for these barbarities, .
, The Philadelphia Press think the
state "will haw to movs with con'
sideratlon In the matter of granting
more judges, for the nggregdte number
Is already too large. No additional
judgeship should be created for any
district until it has been made indis
putably plain that the condition of the
court business therein Is such that an
other judge Is absolutely necessary."
Such a condition Is Indisputably plain
in Lackawanna county.

to present itself to David 11. Lane and the
State Senator Ilardenbergh, of Hones

Congressman Myron II. Wright will be

The Typical American City.
From the Chicago Mall.
Why should not Philadelphia be taken
as a typical American city? It Is a city
of homes, of rich historic associations,
of patriotic memories, of solid und sub
stantial trade ami business. Its people
are cultured and intelligent, without l-
Ing snobs and Anglo-maniacs or self-
satisfied cranks and dreamers. Pharisa
ism and Philistinism are foreign to Its
soli. It follows its own ways without
seeking to dictate the ways of its neigh
bors. . No mantle of self-conceit Is
wrapped around it. Probably less ex
tremcs of wealth and misery are coL
lected within its borders than In any
equal population In the world. Many of
the problems for tho more even distribu
tion of human happiness with which
other countries Rre struggling almost
hopelessly seem to have been solved by it.
Americans everywhere may he thankuil
that Dr. Doyle designated Philadelphia as
the typical American city.

of such a I'toWa was air inviting one.

With streaks of sliver shooting throujjh.
Life's autumn touches with Its frost,
The calmer days Its dreams Inspire,
Vntll my heart Is full of peace
This Christmas eve, before the fire.
The homestead old, the faces there,
The blazing chimney big ami wide;
The moonlight falling on the snow,
The music of the bells outside;
A gentle form beside my own,
Love's sweetest conquest and desire:
Ah me, how troop these happy dreams
This Christmas eve, before the tire.
Nor time, nor age can dim his sight
Whose heart retains Us youthful glow;
What fale denies, she more than pays
In glimpses of the long ago.
Thrice blest Is he this winter's night,
Whose soul secretes no mean desire,
Who, with his pipe, can sit and dream
This Christmas eve, before the fire.
