For Good Local Government.
A moment's thought, If applied by
each citizen to the problem of roi.hI
Kovrnment In this city, ought to es
tablish the truth of the assertion that
the beginning-point of reform Is In the
selection of representative citizens as
oouncllmen. While under the municipal
act of 1SS9 it Is true that the powr
entrusted to the executive branch of
the municipal government Is very con
siderable, more nearly realizing, than
In any other system with which we are
familiar, the much-mooted idea of "one
man power," it yet remains true that
nil legislation, both financial, police
and miscellaneous, must, under that
net, originate In councils, which Is in
such matters practically supreme. The
reflective man does not need to be told
what this faot means, in dally applica
tion. AVhen he Imports from a foreign
land or buys liouor and tobacco he ex
periences contaot with legislation en
acted at Washington. When he sues or
Is sued In the county courts, he re
alizes the significance of the legisla
tive work performed at Harrlsburg.
These occasions, with most men, are
either few or unimportant. Hut as a
citizen of Scranton, concerned as a
property-owner In the municipal ex
penditures which are recouped by di
rect taxation levied on his possessions,
there Is not an hour In the year that
he Is not In gome way reminded of the
Importance and the necessity of wise,
economical and business-like legisla
tion In the two council chambers at
Washington avenue and Mulberry
.street. The. travel on our streets, the
sewers that drain our homes, the men
who guard our. property against burgJ
lary. or fire, every detail In the long
list of conveniences which differentiate
metropolitan Scranton from the unin
corporated collection of country homes
known as the "cross roads village" re
flect at some point the good or 111 work
performed by those who transact the
locul legislation originating In councils.
Some facts embodied in the last city
handbook with reference to the gov
ernment of Scranton during the year
tnded March 31, ISM, will help to bring
about a proper realization of the im
portance and the needs of our munici
pal leglsl.iibive brunch. In that year
j:i sets of viewers awarded damages
figalnst the city. Incidental to public
Improvements, aggregating $30,000. The
collections of the law departments, in
that year, were $.'0,000. On an assessed
valuation or l!,00il,000 Uie cky had a
net IndebUxlness of $38.1,100. For jxiv
tng and grading of streets, $J",(Hi6.66
was expended; while to keep In
order the city's 140 miles of etrents
only $14,000 wuus appropriated. Kvtry
one of these items Is traceable,
et some point, to councils. The
legislation governing the .hiannlling
of this money Is tine work of councils,
and of councils alone. Hut there are
oSher facta. Although we .have 140
miles of trevts within the city limits,
the total m'lleae of sewers laid In the
city Is only 31. Last year $G4,CC0 was
expended on this important factor In
the city's sanitary condition, yet easily
one-half of the iti'ha.blted portion of the
city .Is yet unprovided for. An Item of
$42,99.1.70, charged against the police de-
partment, represents the. total of ex
penses which must first receive np-
proval by councils; and the same Is
true of the $4,758.44 charged against
the mayor's department, the $6,003.57
cgalnst the department of the treas
urer, the $S,530.67 against that of the
controller, the $3,102.12 against tht of
the solicitor, the $10,21.77 against that
of the city ciltirk, 'the $1,575 against that
of the building dnspeetor, the $9,547.81
against Wm.t of the assessors, the $33,
103.34 against the lire department, the
$12,321.53 against the board of health,
the $1,514.1$ Against the park commis
sioners, the Jtl.900 agailnst the public
library, the $K3,818.C7 against the gon
ral olty account and the $3,188.07 of
deficiencies arising in that year. We
have h-re a total expenditure of $340,'
248.94 which passes In one year through
the two bnandhes of our city legislature
and which must, In the final analysis,
be paid tin sume manner or another by
.the citizens and property owners of
Scranton. If every voter in. this city
knew and realized that city govern
tnents conts $3.50 per capita, or nearly
$17.60 for each head of a tiousWiold,
would five, 1y an Intllft'erent ballot cast
At the party caucus or at the polls, dele
gate the power of expending this money
to unlit mien?
This, .then, Is itihe question that presses
home In this time of ward caucuses
and coming spring flections. The citi
zenship of Scn.vilon, for a number of
years, 'has, we fear, not realized the
full meaning of its dutr In t'hls direc
tion. The men Whom It places in coun
cils are Its direct 'agents and attorneys.
Those men serve without salary In iosl-
t'lon4 'thait govern the annual dlsburfse
rnervt of nearly half a .million dollars.
They have ik one to watch them.
Their power, so far as It goes, Is sover
eign and beyond appeal. A mistake by
them Is pahl, not out of the pockets of
those who make It, but out of the pub
lic treasury, out 'of the pockets of the
home-owners and laud-owners of Scran
ton. A breach of faith by them, a deal
or a "divvy," should any occur, would
coat not the lobbyist nor the giver of
the bribe, but .t'he municipality which
Is forced to pay an exorbitant pi'Ice for
an Inferior supply. Indeed, we can
t'hlnk of no batter Illustration of the
Importance of this trust than to liken
It to that of the confidential clerk or the
bookkeeper who, wkth full and free ac
cess to the cash box and the check
book, may, If nut capable and honest,
bring ruin and shame to an honorable
and once-reinunwative business. We
submit that for such . trust .the 'best
men in each ward are none too good.
The position of councilman requires not
honesty simply, but hard, cool, practi
cal Judgment and ripe business experi
ence as well. The man who cannot
manage his own business Is a poor fel
low to expis'.tto manage the business of
the fourth largest cfty In Pennsylvania.
We are glad to see the citizens of the
Seventeenth ward again alive to the
need of capable representation In coun
cils; and we trust that their example
will stimulate similar action In the
other wards that choose agents next
A prize song competition of unusual
interest Is announced by a number of
alumni of the University of Pennsyl
vania. For the best college song, the
words and music of which are both
original, $23 will be p:tid. For the best
original saD of words to fit the Russian
National hymn, $13 will be paid; while
a $10 prize will reward the author of the
best set of words commemorative of
Pennsylvania's prowess In athletics.
These offers are restricted to those who
have attended or now .attend the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania, and they are
designed to stimulate a feeling of com
radeship, among that Institution's
alumni. One of these prizes .at least
ought to come to Scranton.

Death of John B. Smith.
Dunmore borough, Immediately, and
this entire community sustain loss, und
much loss, In the death of John 15.
Smith. A, pioneer In the development
of the upper anthracite fields, he lived
to see wildernesses conquered, villages
expand into live and many-trafficked
cities, and the agencies of civilization
evolved to a high approximation to
perfection. In all of these battles of
development he was a generous and a
powerful factor. He was not, like
some men, dwarfed to the routine of his
first occupation; although conservative
and assiduous in the direction of busi
ness duties, he grew many-sidedly and
was, up to the moment of his last ill
ness. In cordial touch with the bc.-t and
bravest agencies of his day.
Mr. Smith was a man who had little
leisure for shunts and mere conven-
tlonalitius. Self-made, 'he Invariably
estimated others at their Intrinsic, not
at their extrinsic, value.' This habit,
growing with the passing years, gave
him amongst strangers, a reputation
for brusqueness that did Injustice to the
real man. lleneath his rugged exterior
lay warm syniathies and a kindly and
generous disposition. The deeds of
charity and benevolence publicly attri
buted to Mr, Smith were not few nor
unimportant: but they .were only a
fraction of his total contributions to
humun relief and to the agencies which
make for human advancement.
In the death of such a man, In the
twilight of a long, honorable and suc
cessful career, this community loses a
valued citizen but gains an Instructive
and an Inspiring memory.
The dissimilarity between the case of
President Caslmlr Perler and President
Clew land Is marked. President Perler
endeavored to pleas? everybody and
failed. President Cleveland tried to
please nobody and, according to all re
turns, has succeeded beyond his wild
est expectations.
The Duties of the Mayoralty.
The letter of Charles F. Warwick, ac
cepting t'iie nomination of the Republi
can party for mayor of Philadelphia, Is
a document of almost unsurpassed
literary merit. Entirely aiMi't from
any of the unfortunate oircuintilaneea
attending that nomination, this leiitcr
would seem to denote u perception of
the duties and responsibilities of the
executive headship of the third largest
American city of which lany man and
any party mlglit be proud. Wo need
offer no excuse for reproducing so much
of that letter as is general in Its scopo
und applicability:
If elected to this office by the suffrages
of my fellow citizens I will know no mas
ter save duly, and regurd no constituency
but the whole people. I will not lie under
the Inlluenee or control of any power,
political, personal or corporate, that
might intrude upon the conscientious and
fulthful dlschargo of my duty, tlood gov
ernment In municipal affairs Involves the
protection of person and property by un
effective police force, and in order to pro
mote their efficiency ll Is my purpose to
keep the members in this bureau abso
lutely from politics. And It Is also my
intention to see that all the provisions of
the city charter with respect to nil the
other employes of the city participating
In politics shall be enforced In spirit and
letter. It Is my purpose to foster ami nl. I
the business and commercial Interests of
the city In every wuy In my power; to
promote the health and comfort of the In
habitants; secure a plentiful supply of
pure water und good gas, well paved ami
well cleaned streets, and an Improved
water front to facilitate commerce with
our port. The funds of the city shall lw
carefully guarded from spollutlon nnd ex
travagance. The people are entitled, In
the expenditure of the public fornix, to the
best return In skill, competence and
value that it Is possible to procure, nnd to
secure this end nil contracts shall )a
swarded without fear, favor or partiality.
The streets of the utty belong to the pub
lie and no franchise or license to use them
by Individuals or corporations beyond the
common public use for which tht.y were
created shall be permitted a full
und fair compensation to the cltytand the
public; absolute Impartiality and the pub
lic good shall be the uhlmnte and sole cri
terion in determining all question of the
grant of corporate privileges. Vice- and
crime aro at all times and at all hazards
to bo repressed, and the high moral stand
ard of this community preserved so fur
as It lies In the power of the executive to
enforce obedience to law. It Is my pur
pose to discharge the duties of the olllcn
of mayor with zeal for the public good;
nevertheless, perfect candor requires me
to say that however earnest, faithful and
untiring the mayor of the city may be, his
efforts for municipal economy and pro
gress will neeesaarlly be of imperfect ef
fect unless seconded by a like spirit on
the part of the councils of the city. Mu
nicipal government, to be effective, must
come from co-operation of the law-niuk-lng
and law executing powers. That man
Is blind Indeed who does not discern that
the people of this city are ilemunding that
their municlpul affairs shall be conducted
on strict anil honest business principles.
If elected to the office for which you
name me, it shall be my curliest purpose
to comply with this Just demand.
The citizen who shall attentively read
the foregoing will have no difficulty in
applying its teachings to Scranlton.
The Pittsburg Commercial Gazette
statas a solid and Irrefutable fact when
It remarks that "Senator Quay Is 'the
right man at the front. Certain Re
publican journals which should know
better solze every opportunity to join
the Democratic organs dti abuse or In
bald misrepresentation of him. And
yet, AVhen the Republican party needs
to be pulled out of a hole tin congress or
elsewhere one of the first mun (appealed
to for action or advice .s this same Sena
tor Quay." Tn recognition of which It
may be stalled .that never before has
he been so deservedly popular with tlv!
masses of the party In 1Mb common
wealth as lie .Is today, the hostile effort
of enemies notwithstanding.
Warwick Versus Pattlson.
The selection of ex-Governor Pattl
son as the Democratic candidate for
mayor of Philadelphia reduces the fight
In that city to a clear contest between
the two political parties. Side Issues
witll be Ignored In the light of the men
acing presence In this struggle of a
figure head of WHIIam F. Harrlty; and
hundreds of Republicans, while In
dignant at the conditions attending Mr.
Warwick's nomination, will support
their parly nominee in preference tj
transferring the political control of the
oity government, with all Its enormous
Influence, to llarrlty's dangerous hands.
This Is the logic of the situation. We
believe Mr. Warwick will be weaker
tihan his party, for reasons not neces
sarily reflecting upon himself; but ha
can scarcely be so weak as to endanger
tllie continued supremacy of the Re
publican party in a city which last fall
cast, by Itself, nearly 'JO.iloo' Republican
plurality. The menace of Ilarritylsm
will save the day.
The suggestion of President Dickin
son, of the State Hoard of charities,
that the legislature pass an act requir
ing all county jails to be governed by
inspectors appointed by the courts and
commissioners Is so thoroughly In ac
cord with common sense that ft ought
not to be overlooked by this session.
I The present Jail system Is good In
j spots; but generally speaking It Is i
I notorious disgrace.
Ft is stated that Mill Cook waived tho
formalities of law when captured in
Kansas, the other day, and acknowl
j edged his identity and accompanied his
captors back to Oklahoma. Rill has
waived the formalities of the law so
long In his brilliant career, that it is
presumed he did not consider it neces
sary to stand on ceremony at this late
It is a singular coincidence that
America consumed 1.10,000 bunhcls of

Vast a l ender l.nw.
Carhondnle Herald: "Tho trolley Is
here, and It hits come to stay, and while
we admit Its many advantages and supe
rior merits, as compared with old time
methods of travel, no effort should be
spared to reduce the possibility of risk to
the lowest minimum for public safety
The stute legislature now being In ses
sion the time is opportune for some of 0'ir
representatives to Introduce a bill making
it imperative for till street rallwuy com

have been lost In the past, a large per
centage of which might no doubt have
been saved with such safeguards ns ur.)
herein suggested. The longer such a

of life."
Publicity us a SnfesmirJ.
Pittsburg Dispatch: "A rigid Investlgn-
tlon should be Instituted Into the details
of the operations of the new book law
which are not covered by the oltlelul re
ports. If any evils exist their ollleiul pub
lication will In Itself go far toward cor
rection. Then the law could be so amend
ed us to require the local school authori
ties to report to the state department of
Instruction the names und prices of the
books purchased. " hese reports need not
necessarily be printed, to which their
bulltlncKS might furnish nil obstacle, The
mere fact that the figures were on llle ut
Kurrlshurg, und accessible, would provide
n salutary cheek. In matters of this kind
there Is no surer safeguard of public In
tcrests thun publicity."
Tho l.iccnso Court Hill.
Concerning I he llnckenlierg license
court bill the Piltsburg ( ommcrciul-(lu-
jsclte says: "The provision that half of
the board shall Im composed of Republi
cans und half of I leniocrals does not add
to Its strength a particle, but Is an etc
tnent of weakness. There ought to bo
nothing political in the regulation of the
liquor trulllc, and to start out with a
recognition of the equal claims of the two
great .n !!. to say who shall nnd who
shall not deal out Intoxicants In tho sev
eral counties In the state Is tantamount
to saying that tho privileges to sell should
be distributed with some reference to the
polities of tho applicants or of the relit
tlvo strength of the two parties In a
given district." It might lie replied 0
this that, there Is already a good deal of
politics In the P.rooks law, ns commonly
I or a Pcpnrtmcnt of Chnritlus.
After complaining thnt two-thirds of the
state Is not now represented on tho state
board of charities, tho Pittsburg Times
adds: "A bill has been Introduced into the
legislature for the abolition of the board
and tho creation of a department of
charities. This would, of course, con
template that the work be done by sal
aried olllelals absolutely under the con
trol of the state and who would devote
nil their time to tho work. This might
lerhaps cost a little more than the pres
ent system, but tho results would cer
tainly be morn satisfactory. The mem
bers of the present bourd simply devote
such time as they can spare from their
regulur business to the performance of
their duties, and naturally cannot acquire
the same knowledge of the requirements
of the work as would men whose regular
business It was to expend all their time
and attention upon It, Kxperlence has
time uh.l again demonstrated thnt the
work of commissions of private citizens
Is not as eltlelent ns that done by trained
anil responsible otlleluls. If the stute Is
to continue to pay nearly $l,5oo,wo a year
for charitable purposes It will certainly, be
true economy to devote a few thousands
more to insure that this enormous sum
Is most properly nnd effectively used."
Changes in Legal Procedure.
The Uur association of Allegheny coun
ty has decided to oppose the bills rela
tive to changes In legal procedure In the
courts of this commonwealth, proposed
to be presented to the present legislature)
at an early date by Judge Michael Ar
nold, of Philadelphia. Judge Arnold has
formulated a dozen acts relating to reduc
ing half a dozen legul procedures to one
simple class, which will be presented to
the present legislature. The acts pre
scribe the form und regulate the course of
civil procedure and pleading In the courts
of the commonwealth. The first act Is
the Important one, as It provides for the
union of law und equity In one form of ac
tion. Judge Arnolds bill contemplates
that there shall be no distinction between
equity and the law, abolishing a perlo. Ileal
return day, und providing that all ac
tions shull be brought by statement filed,
doing away with special pleading. The
Allegheny Har association Is of the opin
ion thot Judge Arnold's propositions,
while right In tenor, are too radlcul.
Capital Punishment Is Going.
Wllllanisport Times: "In England In
the time of George 111, there were 100 cap
ital offenses, now reduced to two treason
und murder. In Holland, capital punish
ment wns abolished In 1870; in Portugal
and in Itoumunlu, in 18M. In Switzerland,
it is abolished In sixteen cantons. In
Austria, (Jermany and In Sweden, capital
punishment is rare. Vnder the federal
luws of our own country there are still
nine capital offenses treason, murder.
arson, rape, piracy, robbery of mulls with
Jeopardy to lives of persons In charge,
rescue or a convict going to execution,
burning of a vessel of war, and destruc
tion of a prlvute vessel. In Maine It was
abolished In 1X74; also In Iowa, but the
latter state was afterward revived. It
was abolished later In Michigan, Rhode
Island nnd New York, but In New York It
was restored in SX8 and enetrocutlon em
ployed. In Iowa nnd New York, however,
capital punishment would have remained
abolished hud a sulllelently severe penalty
neon provided as a substitute."
Wunts u Department of Alining.
Huzleton Sentinel: "A state depart
ment of mlnng could be made of the most
practical value to the employers und to the
workmen. It could carry on the work of
the geological survey the value of which
Is now apparentto every mine owner,
it could suggest laws and measures that
would ensure greater economy in working
and cheek In a measure the awful loss
of human life that Is going on dully. It
would be the starting point of a system of
mine Inspection. It might, perhaps, be a
medium for settling many of the difficul
ties between labor und capital. As It
stands now the most Important stute In
dustry Is slighted."
