Cleanse Common Council.
We wonder If It never seemed Just a
trifle peculiar to the average city voter
that he should, In the majority of In
stances, be presented with a Blip of pa
per upon which some candidate had
previously printed his own name, nnd
then be expected to vote that slip of
paper at his party caucus without a se
rious thought as to what the action im
plied. In the case of a councilman,
such a careless action may clothe its
beneficiary "with authority to decide
upon legislation of vital interest to his
street, his ward, or bis city; to have a
say in the appropriation and disburse
ment of hundreds of thousands of dol
lars of public money; to be, for a time,
one of a very few men who have In
their keeping the whole governmental
welfare of the city In which they live,
as wvll as the direct pecuniary interests
of every owner of taxable property in
that city. This average voter would
not hire a ten-year-old boy to shovel
dirt without taking some kind of pains
tu ascertain whether the youngster
could be trusted with the shovel. But
he is expected to and, as a mutter of
fact, he generally does choose the man
who, when chosen, holds the whip hand
over every citizen and every civic In
terest of a local character In the city
without giving a passing thought to the
man's qualifications, to his capacity for
responsibilities, to his character, or to
his personal standing among men.
That slip of paper very often, far too
often, represents the weight of the aver
age voter's sense of responsibility.
It sometimes happens that accident
does for American cities what thought
ful citizenship ought to do but gener
ally falls to do It sometimes happens,
we say, that 'men are elected to local
office to councils, to the board of con
trol, to aldermanships who are quali
fied to be sent and kept in office; who
do the . offlce honor and reflect
credit upon constituents who do
not deserve half as much, cre
dit as they get. But the Irony
of all this is usually Illustrated In the
very next block or the very next ward,
where equally as Important a trust is
conferred upon the least fitted man in
the district conferred upon him for no
other reason in the world than because
he was successful In getting his name
printed on a slip of paper which bore
the label of the dominant political
party In the district or In the ward.
The unfit man is elected to serve In the
tame capacity as the fit one, by the
same grade of citizens; and whatever
of good the fit man achieves is usually
neutralized by the unfit man's Incapaci
ty or venality. How. often have we
seen this illustrated? How often has it
been demonstrated, right here In Scran
ton? That too convenient Blip of paper,
What mischief has It not wrought?
An election for common councllmen
will occur next spring. The present
common council has earned for itself
a most unenviable reputation for In
capacity and dishonesty. It has earned
this reputation In spite of the presence
In it of good and true men. These men
have been In a minority we do not
claim that this minority has been a
political minority in the partisan sense,
We are not now trying to raise a parti
san issue. The good men in common
council, Democrats and Republicans,
have been In a minority, have been
many times outvoted by the men whom
an Indifferent public sentiment has per
mitted to acquire office because their
names were printed on a little slip of
paper, under .the label of the particular
party which chanced to "control" the
respective wards. The constituents
who sent these unfit men to council
would not have employed them as prl
vate agents, would not have given them
the keys to their personal business
vaults and money-drawers; would not
have clothed them with :tha sover
elgn powers of a personal trustee or
attorney. But .they put them without
hesitation Into a place whore all the
wealth and all the municipal Interests
of the fourth, city In Pennsylvania lay
at their command, and did not even so
much as exact a bond for good be
Shall the "sllp-of-paper" idiocy re
peat itself next February?
It would be a first-rate plan for thn
voters of the Nineteenth ward next
spring, Irrespective of party, to send to
common council a representative citi
zen of the ward, a man of conceded
honesty and high character, and one
who would, If elected, strengthen not
oidy the ward representation but also
the entire city government. Such a
cftioice Is not Impossible, if the right
kind of educational work is achieved
prior to election.
The Democrats of the Seventh ward
owe it to themselves -to nominate the
best candidate for common council next
spring that they can And In the ward.
If their candidate should be a progres
sive and ncgetlc property owner and
taxpayer, all the better.
The Official Returns. '
In another column we reproduce from
the Philadelphia Press a nearly com
plete table of the popular voU officially
ruturned as having been cast at the re
cent elections. We acknowledge our
Indebtedness to the same excellent
Journal for the principal features In
the following Interesting analysis of
that table. It will be perceived from this
table that there were 11,203,377 ballots
castand counted, as compared with the
12,034,858 cast and counted In the presi
dential election of 1892. This Is the
largest vote ever cast In an off year ths
falling oft from the vote of two years
ago being only 831,481, a fact fully suf-
flolent to disprove any claim that the
result was due to Indifference.
Another significant feature of the re
turns Is 'the great Increase of the Re
publican vote over 1892. In that year
the total Republican vote was 5,175,202,
wthlle Mils year the Republican vote Is
6,588,326-an increase of 413,124. The
Press regards .this large (Increase 'In a
party's vote Inian off year over the vote
the same party cast in the previous
presidential election as something
unique In American political history. In
the Democratic sweeps of 1874 and 1890,
as 4t points out, no such Increase was
apparent. The Democratic victories
were due in both cases to a falling off
in the Republican vote. But this year
the Republican victory is due to a large
increase in the Republican vote the
party 'having cast not only the largest
vote 'It ever polled, but also having east
the largest vute ever polled by any
party In itihla country at any election
ever held. '
"In 1892," our conltempwary adds,
'the Democrats palled 5,554,226 votes and
had a plurality of 379,025 over the Re
publicans, but they were In a minority
of 969,205 ' on the total popular vote.
This year the Republicans cast 6,588,325
votes, or 34,100 more than the Democrat.
did when .they elected Cleveland, and
they have a plurality over the Dem
ocrats of 1,439,870, and only lack 26,726
votes of having a popular majority.
The Democrats called it a great popu
lar Indorsement two years ago, when
they polled only 46 per cent, of the total
vote. If that was a vote of approval,
what ougiht the vote of this year to be
called, When the Republicans polled al
most exactly 50 per cent, of the vote?
It must be remembered also that this
was done under the great disadvan
tages that Republicans labor In the
South. If they had been able to poll
their vote in thalt section, the total, Re
publican vote Would have- been over
6,000,000, and the Republican plurality
over the Democratic vote would (have
been mearly 2,000,000."
Not the least Interesting fact appar
ent in the table Is the large growlth of
the Populist movement In the South.
Despite audacious electoral frauds
practiced in many places by the regu
lar Democracy, the Populist vote In
Alabama came within 18,000 of equalling
the Democratic; In Georgia, within 40,-
000; In Louisiana, within 8,000; in Missis
sippi,- within 13,000, and In Texas, with
in 44,000. When It is considered that
Populism Is the entering wedge which
will hopelessly cleave and annihilate
the South's once-boasted solidity, this
rapid growth in Populism's strength
possesses large significance. The in
telligence of the South is less endan
gered by Populism eccentric as that
passing vagary undoubtedly Is 'than It
is endangered by the hitherto unchal
lenged Bourbonlsm of that section.. The
subsidence of the Populiatlc movement
will not return 'these thousandsof dar
ing men, who have braved immemorial
traditions, to the Democratic party.
Upon the contrary, It will be the means
eventually of turning thousands of en
ergetic and fearles3 citizens of . the
younger generation Into 'the Republican
party, which can 'then hazard a serious
battle with Democracy In Democracy's
. If the Honorable R. Croker ds wlse. he
will close his mouth with a time lock
and, then forget the combination.
Among the gentlemen suggested as
possible candidates for select council
from the Seventeenth ward, to succeed
Sheriff demons, are Luther Keller,
Horace Hand and J. A. Lansing. The
ward could not do better than to choose
one of the foregoing. All are men who
would take Into council the same
sagacity, industry and honesty that
each exhibits In the conduct of his indl
vidua! business affairs. It Is high time
that each ward in Soranton were thus
represented, in both branches of coun
ells. Give Soranton such a council and
It could challenge the world to a com
parison of sensible legislative results.

The curious statement is made that
the refusal of the Turkish sultan to Mr-
permit Minister Terrell to serve as
of the members of the commission
which is to investigate the. recent Ar
menlan atrocities leaves us without re
course. There is said to be no prece
dent in the annals of the state de
partment covering a similar incident;
and the announcement follows that the
authorities at Washington will there
fore withdraw their request and leave
the investigation of those atrocities to
a commission made up entirely of
We have understood, from current re
ports, that a number of American mis
sionaries were concerned In the mas
sacres. This information may be inac
curate: but. If not. it would .seem
to afford ample ground for a spirited
Insistence upon bur' right fo name' a'
representative on the Armenian com
mission. It is explained In the press
dispatches that the reason advanced
by the Bultan for his disinclination to
permit MlnUter Terrell to serve as
a commissioner contemplates the ex
traordinary outburst of popular feeling
in the United States against Turkey
and the Turkish authority. The buI
tan, In plain words, fears that a Yan
kee on the Jury might threaten a ver
dict of guilty; wherons, if the jurors
are all European, there is a chance that
Turkish blandishments may induce a
more lenient finding. While, In this
light, the sultan's objection Is in reality
a high compliment, It Is obvious that It
augments the moral reasons why we
should insist upon representation upon
The central point In this whole Inci
dent Is the manifest Indifference, tim
idity or Inefficiency, of our present state
department. It has acted from the be
ginning as if It feared to express an
original thought or make a decided
move. There Is abundance of provoca
tion for an aggreslve course. Thou
sands of American citizens, resident In
Turkey as missionaries, are endangered
by these anti-Christian uprisings, or
put to shame by the American state de
partment's lack of back bone. If, in
the face of these facts, the United
States government permits a senile
seml-barbai'ian ruler to publjcly and
Insolently snub Its official represen
tative, the name American will doubt
less hereafter In Turkey be an invita
tion to ridicule or open indignity or
Populism will go Just as soon as pros
perity comes. It represents organized
discontent whkih cannot survive the re
turn of g'jod times.
Now Is the time for councllmanic
candidates in the Fifteenth ward to an
nounce themeslves. If those who ac
tively seek the oflice are not up to the
standard, the voters of the ward should
draft some one who is. There should
be very little sentiment -in such a choice.
The property owners of the ward, when
they choose a councilman, virtually se
lect a trustee Invested with power of
attorney over their bank accounts. A
responsibility of this magnitude obvi
ously should not be tossed about at

The Fifth ward has had in Council
man Robathan a faithful and efllclent
representative, who retires with the
general respect of his constituents, to
assume responsible duties of another
kind. The Fifth ward Is very likely to
keep its representation .up to the same
hi!?h standard. The Flrat and the Third
wards, if they Intend to make any
change, will yet 'have time to think the
matter carefully over.

General Clarkson thinks thut If tho con
vention were held this year McKlnley
would be the Republican choice, but Inas
much as two years are to Intervene, he
thinks Thomas li. Reed, of Maine, will
come forward as a powerful candidate.
The organization of the next house will
be as follows: Speaker, Henry F. Wal
ton, of Philadelphia; chief clerk, A. D.
Fettcrolf, of Montgomery; resident clerk,
Jere H. Rex, of Huntingdon; reading
clerk, Fred W. Fleltz, of Lackawanna;
Journal clerk, E. J. Randolph, of Alle
It Is nlready assured that Senator Pen
rose will reintroduce his bill providing fur
the abolition of the much-abused Phila
delphia building commission. Represen

tirement of the Judges, and Representa
tive Fow will hand In one amending the
new ballot law.
"Uncle Amos" Mylin, the auditor general-elect,
Is disgusted with the silly reports
sent out from liarrlsburg that he has se
lected any of the clerks who will serve
with him druing his administration of
the department's affairs. "To tell you the
straight truth," said Mr. Mylin, "I have
not made a selection of any kind what
ever." Tho board of directors of the Union
League has decided upon Saturday
evening, Jan. 5, as the date for the recep
tion to Governor-elect Hastings. The re
ception Is certain to be a very imposing
affair. In addition to the 1,500 members of
the league who will ree'elvo notice of the
affair, Invitations will probably be sent
to prominent Republicans of Philadelphia
and the state at large.
The next senato will have for chief
clerk Kdward W. Smiley, of Franklin;
James U. Carson, of llutler, reading
clerk; James L. Hrown, of Philadelphia,
Journal clerk, and Herman P. Miller, of
Dauphin, senate librarian. James P. Hur
rah, of Heaver, a personal and political
friend of Senator C'uay, will be sergeant-at-arms
In place of John H. Meyers, of
Lancaster. W. S. Hobinson, of Erie, has
been Indorsed by the Erie delegation for
message clerk. There are a score of
candidates for doorkeeper and the other
subordinate places In tho senate.
Sockless Jerry Simpson figures it out
that the Populists show a gain of 70 per
cent, over tho vote polled In, 4892. He adds:
"It soems to me thut there Is room for a
party that will embrace the common peo
ple and advocate their principles and do
fend their rights. It may be tho Populist
party, or it may not be, I cannot but be
lieve (that the Populist party Ib the nu
cleus, and a Jeffersonlan party will spring
up and take the place of the Democratic
party of todny, which, as now organized,
has shown that It Is utterly Incapable of
managing the affairs of the country."
To recapitulate: There will be In the
state senate, which will meet next Tues
day, 43 Republicans and 7 Democrats, the
majority party having five more than a
three-fourths and nine more than a two
thlrdB vote of tho entire body. There
will be In the house 175 Republicans and 29
Democrats, Including the three Pennsyl
vania Democracy men from the Second,
Third nnd Fourth wards of Philadelphia.
The Republicans of the house have 2
more than a three-fourths, and 29 mora
than a two-thirds vote of the 204 mem
bers. There would be on joint ballot of
the two houses a Republican majority of
182, which Is only nine' less than three'
fourths of all the 254 members of both
It has been the" custom of the legisla
ture, after orgunlzlng, to adjourn for a
week or longer and thus give the presid
ing ollleerfl time to select the members of
the standing committees. It Is under
stood, however, that the adjournment
next Tuesday will be for a much briefer
time than usual, perhaps for only a day.
This is because the Republican party
managers are In favor of making the
coming legislative session i as short as
may be practicable. They talk of a final
adjournment not later than tho middle of
April, and think that the shorter the ses
sion may be made consistently with the
enactment of necessary legislation tho
better the people would be satisfied. It is
argued that as Mr. Walton is assured of
election as speaker, he can be ready to
announce his committees next week.
President pro tern. Thomas can do the
same, and there Is apparently nothing to
cause the customary delay which would
interfere with the short-session programme.
THE POPULAR VOTE.
Neatly Complete Record of the Votes Cast
In This Year's Elections. ,
The following table, which was com
piled by the Philadelphia Press, contains
the vote from forty-two r.tates anil the
territory of Utah, Boon to becomo a state.
The voto Is not official except for a few
states, but the variation in these will be
very small. The vote from Florida and
Nevada Is not at hand, but they can af
fect the totals only a very little, or the
vote was light In both states. The Fusion
vote 1b credited wholly to the Populist
party In Alabama and Georgia and to
the Republicans In North Carolina. If
any unfairness is done in this way it Is
to tho Republicans. In the votes of sev
eral other states also the figures do not
do the Hepublicnns Justice, but It Is not
possible always to be absolutely accurate
where there are alliances between two
parties. The total vote when all the fig
ures arc In will probably reach 11,3M,0'.
