Failure on the part of several com
mon councllmeii to attend last even
ing's Joint session of councils has
caused another delay In awarding the
contracts for the two new bridges. The
names of the absent members are
printed on another page. The con
stituents of these men are entitled to
ask for explanations. The tendency of
n certain element in common council to
block the progress of the bridges is a
fair subject for Inquiry.
The Christmas Holiday.
The happiest of holidays known to
the Christian world dawns upon us
again. The glad season that Is hailed
with delight by the rising generation
never falls to awaken pleasant mem
ories In the minds of those of riper
years, who live again the delights of
Christmas of long ago as tho festivities
commemorating the birth of the Savior
of mankind are repeated on each suc
ceeding season. As the world becomes
more liberal and Christianity is based
upon broader Ideas the Christmas holi
day becomes more sacred and Chris
tian people throughout the universe en
deavor to celebrate In a spirit of tolera
tion and with decorum the day that
marks the beginning of the Christian
era. It is pleasing to note that the
spirit of bigotry and Intolerance among
Christian people, which like the ancient
unseemly revelries at Yuletlde made
the sacred holiday a mockery, is gradu
ally fading away and that with each
returning Chrintmas there Is a disposi
tion on the part of religious wockers to
pay less attention to various creeds and
give more thought to the common cause
of all Christian people.
With the signs of returning prosper
My at every hand the Christmas of ISM
In America Should be a merry one and
a day of thanksgiving s well. While
all conditions are probably not as we
would wish; while there are instances
of suffering and want about us on all
sides, It is safe to assert that not one
of the most abject would care to ex
change places with the down trodden
of other countries who know not the
joys of liberty. Let ust therefore, be
thankful that we live lu a land where
man may worship the Creator accord
ing to the dictates of his own conscience
afe from the frenzy of fanatical fol
lowers of this or that creed; that our
heritage 'has been a land whoso institu
tions have furnished examples of pro
gress and liberality which have re
dounded to the benefit of humanity the
vorld over; and that with each re
iturnlng season the interest in the holi
day of Christianity Increases rather
Thanksgiving was a day of family re
Jolclng. Christmas means that all man
kind belong to one family, and should
have one faith and hope.
vvniie Kepuollcaiis generally will
wish for the Incoming governor the
compliments or tne season, many who
expect an ofllce In return may safely
count upon being disappointed.
It Is not; a new thought but It Is cor
talnly a true one that genuine Christ
mas cheer Is unselfish.
'One of the greatest dangers which
men encounter while new to politics Is
the danger of playing too fine a game,
A good deal of the extraordinary finesse
and phenomenal adroitness that we
read about as If they were common
features of political manipulation
exists only in books and in the over
wrought Imaginations of novices. Some
of the best politicians that this country
has ever produced have been men who
have practiced pretty much the same
principles In politics that they would
have practiced had they been engaged
let us say, In a mercantile pursuit. We
mean by this that a fair promise once
given they have kept; and that when
they could not give such a promise they
have frankly said so.
It Is altogether a pernicious Idea, and
one much too prevalent, that to sue
ceed In politics one must necessarily lie
like Ananias, dissimulate like Moplils-
topheles and practice, the consummate
knavery of a Talleyrand. Some very
fair successes have been attained In
this country by men who have scorned
to copy the defects of great men Instead
of trying to Improve upon their strong
points. The advantage of a political
success thus honorably won is that It
does not lead to the penitentiary or the
If a word of advice may be permitted
to those who will soon, in this state,
occupy public office for the first time,
we should say very plainly: Don't
Btoop to deception. It doesn't pay.' It
may serve your purpose for a time, but
eventually you will be found out and
put down among the Common liars who
rattle around tho outer edges of Ameri
can politics. Promises should not be
made without forethought and deliber
ation. When made, they should be
kept. If it 13 impossible to keep them,
say so and ask to be released The
notion that to bo a shrewd politician
necessitates tho systematic suppression
of all the attributes of common dc
rnticv nml rnmntnn manliness is n
wrong one, and the person who bullda
career upon It will awaken some
morning to find himself a repudiated
Charity, rather than bestiality, Is the
meaning of today. i
Calling fellow-polleomcii liars will not
Indicate Gotham's Implicated "ilncxt."
Every accusation made In the teiiti
mony brought out before the Lxov
committee has thus far been speemo;
much too spectlic. In fact, to bo affected
by angry general denials.
The Pennsylvania railroad has been
entering Scranton for fully seven years'.
If It wants to maintain a ijcranlon
pact it will aiave to nurry up.
The confident prediction of prominent
members of the board of trade that dur
ing 181)5 Scranton will nttaln Its banner
r of growth seems a reasonable o:ie.
All the elements of continued and ac-
elemted progrc-.ii are In conspicuous
oval evidence. Th:- one drawback u
depression of trade that must soon
ceaae rur sneer unreasonauieness. in
dustries desiring an advantageous new
ocallon will find, In Scranton, the real
ization of .'heir most exacting require
ments. Jus', as soon as trade Improve!;,
many Industries now occupying un
satisfactory tftes, will cast about them
ur suitable new abodes. In such an
emergency It hi evidently the opportune
time for a grand revival of Scrantdnlan
energy and pu.m. we may not nave
the same large fund of tocksd-up capi-
al that Is possessed by each of several
competitive cities which are beginning
to augment their bourd-of-trade ac
tivities; but Scranton er.n lay Ju.ot
lalm, when It so desires, to having the
liveliest set of busln;93 men to be
found In any eastern city of cor-
espondlng size, bar none. When to
this substantial advantage is added the
uncommon natural resources of this
city, the result is a total Inducement
which few wide-awake managers of
outside Industries could or would re
sist. One of the good New Year resolutions
which every citizen of Scranton should
make Is to-lose no opportunity, during
ISiij, to advance the name, fame and
rating of re-awakened Scranton.
The St. Louis Globe-Democrat names
as It candidate for president, in 1S90,
the best Republican In Maine." Why
not the best In the whole country?
Governor Pattlson, like G rover Cleve
ind, should have been content with
one term. Had he been so, he would
have lived In history u.s a most excel-
ent governor, and might even have be
come president. As It is, the medi
oorlty of his second tenure will eclipse
the promise of his first term, nnd he
will relapse Into private" station with
rather more than the customary dull
It Is apparently fortunate that the
Republican politicians of the anthracite
counties are not asking for much this
The Factory Inspectorship.
It Is characteristic of Captain John C.
Dlaney that, rather than embarrass
the Incoming governor, General Hast
ings, by an Insistence upon the falrly
promlsed factory Inspectorship which
he could have had, had he Insisted he
has chosen, Instead, the etiually lucra
tive but less Important superlntend-
ency of public buildings and grounds.
Those who know the captain's Invaria
ble amiability do not need the assur
ance that this surrender of a personal
preference In the Interest of harmony
was made ungrudgingly and without
a tnougnt ot pique.
So far as Captain Delaney Is person
ally concerned this incident may, we
dare say, be accepted as settled. What
Is less clear to us is how his numerous
friends In this section of the Btate will
be disposed to view this latest Bhullllng
of the cards by the gentleman who tem
porarily superintends tho deal. If Cap
tain Dehtney had not received a speci
fic and unconditional promise of the
factory Inspectorship, the present sud
den transposition would not, pcrhap.s,
excite surprise. It has become a favor
ite trick of Philadelphia and Allegheny,
and more especially Allegheny, to mon
opolize, by belated bluster, the fruits
of victory at the expense of tho hard
fighters In other portions of the rtaie.
The fact that a certain plain promise In
the present Instance has virtually been
recalled occasions curiosity as to whether
Allegheny Is going, for the next four
years, to have all the say In matters
pertaining to Industrial appointments.
It will probably occur to General
Hastings, In the course of time, that
the appetite which he has deemed It
good policy to appease, Is Inappeaslble.
Then the state-at-large. Including the
anthracite region, may stand some
show. All things are possible, no doubt,
to the section that can wait.
The latest outbreak of the literary
department of tho Cameron presi
dential boom Is probably Intended as a
blind for senatorial fence-building.

City Treasurer McCreary, of Phila

Judgment In pulling out of the fight
against the present management of the
Lehigh Valley Railroad company. Ills
position as an antagonist of the Wil
burs gave 110 hope of success, and only
promised to Invest the situation with
now complications and add to the diffi
culty of restoring the railway property
to a dividend-paying basis. When the
present largely personal campaign shall
have ended, as It will end, In the re
election of tha Wilbur management,
those now active In the advocacy of a
competitive ticket will be expected to

Corporations and Taxation.
Of the entire umount of money ($12,
S73.000) reed veil at tits state treasury
as taxes duilng tho year ended Nov. 30,
the corporations paid $1127,061 mora than
half. During this period, personal
property contributed only $2,36,000, or
less thun one-fifth of the total. In view
of these facts It cannot truly be Eaid
that corporations, as a class, ars elud
ing a just proportion of the burdens of
state taxation. They may not con
tribute as much for local purposes as
the value nf thrir public privileges
would socm to warrant: but for state
purposes they are taxed quite enough.

stancin, know to the contrary, we
should credit these usually shrewd
Lusinesa men with the ability to per
ceive that wlille this unequal taxation
may be safely practiced for a time,
there Is danger, ultimately, of a recoil
more costly to the now favored cor
porate Interests than would be tho pay
ment, unon ull occun'.or.s, of an honest
share of taxation. We have no doubt
that nine-tenths uf the socialistic agi
tation of our time, with Its large bill
of extra expense to Invested capital, Is
due directly to tho evasion by Indus
trial wealth of Its proper proportion of
the cost of local government. The cor
rection of this Inequality would proba

the cranks, but it would certainly rob
the socialistic movement of many hon

The New York court of appeals will
make a small chnnge In libel prosecutions
so far as that stale In concerned. It holds
that when a retraction Is published with
in a reasonable time after suit has bo
gun It will lessen damagos. It had been
previously held that a retraction at such
time could have no effect. The court of
appeals decides that the court below
should Instruct Juries that sueh publica
tion will lessen damages. It also holds
thftt no offer to apologize' need bo made
to the complainant but that the newspa
per mny spontaneously apologize without
regard to hlB wishes. It most often hap
pens that It Is tho man with doubtful
