Poth the Thirteenth aad the Seven
teenth wards are to be congratulated
upon the quality of men they propose
to send to the new councils. May their
examplespreadas a contagion through
out the municipality!
Making a Good Start.
That Ithere is already a. strong senti
ment in this city in. favor of elevatiintf
councils was proved by 'the general 'In
terest ttaken in the various ward cau
cuses Saturday nlg'ht. It ia nut exas
peration to say Ithat in nearly every
instance these caucuses elicited an out
pouring1 of citizens such as has sel
dom characterized purely municipal
campaigns in Seranton. In a. number
vt .the wards men attended and actively
participated who toad nut in years be
fore made their presence felt at the
party primaries. The slg-nllic&nce of
this re-awakened 'Interest is not itrlvlal.
It is Important to .the Individuals them
selves since t denotes ithat they have
at last shaken off 'the civic lethargy s i
common to American voters when only
local Interests arc Involved and it is
equally important to ithe community.
The content'ion .that 'if the reputable
elements of society would Join efforts at
the primary- elections 'to remedy politi
cal abuses much of 'the corruption In
cur politics would disappear is not a
raw one, but it is still a. true) one. It Is
particularly true in municipal politics,
Where the common neglect of the party
caucus by men whose presence itlhere
would have a restraining influence
perves as a direct encouragement to the
study and practice of systematic arts
of ballot corruption, and leads by logi
cal stages ito grave public scandals and
cbuses. We are graitlfied to believe,
upon clear evidence, that tiho beginning
of a change for luhe betlter has been
made In this city. It pefhaps is only a
beginning, and noit a very large one at
ithait; but tho fault will .be with eon-nest
citizens if of ithis small start due ad
vantage shall mft be promptly itaken.
' The proposition to tax aliens doubt
less proceeds along the principle that
he resident of this state who enjoys
the advantages of American freedom
without sharing in the respunsibllltes of
American citizenship ought to be made
to pay a monetary quid pro quo. There
is a good deal to be said In the proposi
New Currency Reform Plans.
The past fortmlgh't has witnessed the
formulation of four jiow currency
plans. Thajt of Senator Jones, of Ar
Kansas, is the moat pretentious. It
authorizes on tissue of $500,000,000 worth
of 24 per cent, thirty-year bonds, the
proceeds of whiloh are to pay running
expenses amd to redeem outstanding
greenbacks and treasury notes. Na
tlonal banks are to be permitted 'to
Issue notes to the .par value of deposit
ed bonds, such circulation to be taxed
only one-fourth of l.per cent. These
bank notes are not to be of a smaller
denomination thait $20. The cancelled
greenbacks and treasury notes are to
bo rephiced by silver certificates of
denominations Jess than t'iO. Finally,
the plan provides 'that the secretary of
the treasury shall receive, at any mint,
from any citizen of the United States,
silver bullion produced alt American
mines; shall coin J t Into standard sliver
dollars, and give itfhese dollars back to
.the bullion owner, minus the seignior'
ftge, or the difference .between the coin'
ege value and the bullion value In Lon
The second plan, tbat of ex-Governor
Holes, of Iowa, Is nut so clear. Ha
would, In the first place, limit the legal
tender capacity of all gold and silver
coins how extant; would Issue a dollar
certificate against every dollar coin, so
that people could take their choice; and
finally, be would establish a ratio be.
tween gold and sliver which, In the
Judgment of conservative 'blmctalllsts,
could probably be maintained, say 25
to 1 and then tie -would mint both gold
and silver into coins of five, ten and
twenty dollars without limit for the
benefit of depositors. If depositors did
Hot care to carry $20 silver pieces about
with them, the ex-governor would gen'
erously permit ithcm to deposit .the coin
and take out certificates, redeemable
at the government's option tufter
pertas of years.
President Frame, of the Waukesha
. "vv'to.. National bank, la .the author of
the third adltition to our present cur
rency tangle. He proposes, as we learn
from a Milwaukee contemporary,
That the government shall refund all out
landing bonds Into long time cotuoll
dated per cent, bonds as a lower rate
might Involve the selling of the bonds be
low par; allow the banks to iKstie cur
rency for the face value of bonds depos
ited to the extent of paid-up capital
took; abolish the 1 per cent, tax on cir
culation and charge only for actual ex
penses; allow any bank to take out an
emergency circulation of 20 per cent, ad
ditional on the deposit of 8 per cent, bonds,
this to be retired within a limited time un
der penalty; legalize the Issue of clearing
house certificates In cities having a pop
ulation of 250,000 or more, and allow theso
to count as part of the legal reserve of a
bank to the extent of, say, 23 per cent.;
retire and cancel, first the legal-tender
notes, and then the Sherman treasury
notes, by tho Isbuo of 3 per cent, bonds lu
blocks of about $10,000,000 each against nd-
Itlonal circulation taken out, and us
ften as $50,000,000 are thus retired tho
secretary of the treasury to Issue $10,000,0o0
additional with gold tuken from the treas
ury reserve; this would divorce the gov
ernment from the banking business, and
the balance of the uncoined bullion In Its
hands should bo held to partially cover the
depreciation of the coin In the Bilver dol
lars; the banks to bo required to redeem
Itlier In legal tender or gold coin or gold
certificates, till all the legal tenders are re
tired, and then in gold coin or certificates
only; ullow banks to hold 20 per cent, of
their required reserves in national bank
notes; nuthorlzo the 'secretary of the
reasur.'Wo sell the new 3 per cent. lion. Is
whenever necessary to meet panicky con
ditions or maintain the credit of the gov-
rnment; require one-thlnl of the customs
duties to be paid In gold or Its equivalent;
ub-treasurles to Issue certificates on de
posits of gold coin In nny amounts; ad
just the revenues of tho government so
that they will not ereute a surplus, but
leave a bonded debt of about $1,000,000,000;
congress to pass courteous resolutions
skins the states to pass laws governing
he bunking business on lines approxi
mating those of the national banking ni a
cin for eotnmerelul banks, etc.
The last solution Is by William Hak-
ett, cashier of the Eastoa National
bank. It authorizes the Issue of $1,000,-
000,000 worth of 2 per cent, thirty-year
bunds, to .be used only for. deposit as
security for the circulating notes ut
national banks, such circulation not to
exceed 73 per cent, nor to fall below 50
per cent, of ea.ih bank's full-paid and
unimpaired capital. No national bank
shall Issue smaller than $10 or $20 notes,
the minor denomination? to be supplied
by the government In silver certificates
and gold and silver coin to such an
amount as tho necessities of business
may require. These bank notes shall
be lit gal tender for all debts except du
ties on Imports; and shall be redeemed
In four federal bank currency redemp
tion agencies, one each at New York,
Chicago, San Franslsco and New Or
leans, in the nearest one of which each
bank shall deposit In gold G per cent.
on its total circulation. Provision is
made for the withdrawal of circulation
between the 50 and 75 per cent, limits.
and fur the organization of district
clearing .house associations, with power
to issue, In emergencies, Interest-bear
ing certificates to be legal tender among
national bainks and to rank as part of
such bunk's reserve on liabilities. Other
provisions of Mr. Hackett's plan re
quire national banks to deposit with
the treasurer of the United States 2 per
nt. bonds equal to 10 per cent, of the
bank's average liabilities; compel the
accumulation of a 20 per cent, surplus
fund before any dividend may be de
clared; grant to solvent banks, upon
permission from the comptroller of the
currency conditioned upon thorough in
vestigation, tho privilege, in time of
emergency, to demand reasonable time
In making payment of all claims; and
stipulate that if the 10 per cent, tax
on state bank circulation shall be re
pealed, etute 1anks must be permitted
to Issue only such notes as meet the
conditions and requirements governing
the circulation of national banks.
The last UR-gestion Is manifestly the
best. We dmtbt if a 2 per cent, bond
would serve the purpose; but should
congress consider otherwise, and decide
to give the main tenor of the" llackett
plan a trial, wa,do not question the
plan's ultmate success. The fight over
silver would, In that event, continue to
rage, but it would not be so likely to
Jeopard the public welfare.

What of the Death Penalty?
An excellent service has already been

tion, "Shall Capital Punishment He
Abolished?" Whether his bill to do
away with the death penalty In this
state hall prevail or be rejected,

be compciten.t for advocates of the death

To Guard the Worthy Poor.
The meeting tomorrow afternoon In
the Young Women's Christian associa
tion rooms, of all the women of Scran-
ton who are Interested In the work of
lie Associated Charities deserves a lib
eral attendance. This time, of all times
n the year, Is when ministrations of or
ganized relief need to be systematic
and unstinted. Scran tun Is not worse
ailllcted, perhaps, than are most cltiss
aving a large population directly de
pendant upon depressed industries; but
there Is suflleient want and suffering
In this community to Justify renewed
energy and generosity in the planning
and distribution of aid.
Tills year, those who purchase mem
bership tickets In the Associated Chari
ties will be ptuvlded with what arc
aiown somewhat bluntly but not un-
turnlly as "tramp tickets." These
tickets Vill enable householders to aid
lint-rant solicitors of alms without In-
cut'fing the rink of being imposed upon.
The honest "trump" can by means of
this ticket have his wants relieved;
while those who tramp through con
stitutional laziness will not bo permit
ted to stand In the way of deserving
mverty. The system, at best, Is seem
figly harsh; but it is Inllnltely prefer
able to the wasting of popular gener
osity upon those who do not deserva
It, ut the expense of those who do.
The Wllkes-Barre Leader asks us If
private benevolence is equal to the task
of maintaining schools for manual
training in Seranton. We believe It
Will be when the subject is properly
presented. The movement to add man
ual training to the educational work
conducted by the Seranton Young Men's
Christian association is progressing in
a manner to give encouragement to
this belief. And this individual kind of
maintenance is, in our opinion, the only
defensible way in which manual train
ing can be Justly accomplished. To
tax people indiscriminately in behalf of
the few who want to become specialists
at the public expense violates every
principle of true democracy, as the
Leader, if it be frank, ought to admit.

Appeal from Judgment of Court.
Hurrisburg correspondence of the Phil
adelphia Bulletin: "The bill granting a
new trial or allowing an appeal from the
Judgment of the court received a favor
able report from the senate committee.
The granting of a new triul Is now held
by tho courts of Pennsylvania to be a
mutter of discretion from which no up-
peal con be tuken. A case having been
fully tried, the questions of law Involved
In Its determination run be delinltely set
tled by on appeal to the supreme court If
either party deem himself aggrieved by
the granting of a new trlul. Of course,
an appeal will not be tuken if both par
ties recognize that the grunting of a new
trlul is Just, it may happen thut the
Judge in grunting tho new trial Is In error
and that the first trial was correct, while
the second trlul wns Incorrect. The case,
for Instance, may present a new principle,
which can only bo finally determined by
the Judgment of the supreme court. This
ran be done as well on the first as on tho
second trial. The granting of new trials
delays the Jtrluls of other cases, and that
aids In the "law's delays." Appeuls from
Judgment of the court In grunting new-
trials are allowed In Indlanu, Connecti
cut, Illinois, Texas, California, Minne
sota and some other states. Experience
shows It is advantageous to the suitors
and to the administration of Justice."
Sectarian Garbs in School.
A bill has been Introduced at Harrlsburg
making It a misdemeanor for any teacher
In the public schools to wear a distinctive
ly religious garb or to make a display of
religious emblems. The Philadelphia
North American thinks that legislating
against the wearing of a particular dress
by public school teachers belittles the con
troversy. It suggests thut the law be di
rected against the employment as teach
ers of persons who have tuken religious
vows under which their first duty and
allegiance are duo not to the stnto but to
some religious organization. "That," our
contemporary adds, "puts tho question
upon the basis or principle, and In taking
up that ground the state would occupy an
advantageous and Impregnable position.
It must surely bo practicable to frame
some effective legislation nlong those
lines, thus avoiding the semblance of an
arbitrary Interference with personal lib
erty and going to the very root of the con
troversy. The restraining and regulatory
effect of any law thut may be enacted
should operate In the manner Indicated
upon the school authorities, the agents of
the Btatc, and not upon their employes,
Thinks Ho Wouldn't Veto It.
Altoona Tribune: "Governor Hastings
Is silent concerning compulsory education
but we would bo very much surprised
were ho to veto a properly constructed
bill Insisting upon the right of every child
In the state to an education, but carefully
guarding the right or the parent to do
terinine whether thut education shall be
obtained in a public, puroehlul or select
school, or In the family circle. It Is to be
hoped tho present legislature will present
sues a bill for executive scrutiny."
W e Should Say So.
Pittsburg Commercing Gnzette: "It
should be tho aim to enable nil partloB to
gain access to the official ballot, while
keeping it within tho limits of conven
ience and slinpllcty. The changes Intend
ed to promote secrecy and facilitate nc
curacy on the part of the voter are In tha
right direction. One of the most Import
ant propositions Is that which relates to

abled voters, as it defines how and under
what regulations the assistance shall be
furnished. The present law has boen
found a lltUe loose In this respect, and Is
susceptible' of Improvement.
New County May Succeed.
Wllkes-Barre News-Denier: "The fight
, for th0 new county has been transferred
; to the legislature. Senator Kline has In-
traduced a bill In the senate providing for
the establishment of a new county to be
cnlled Uuny county. It will comprise ter
ritory tuken fnMi Luxerne and Schuylkill
counties. Senator Kline expects a speedy
passage of the bill through the senate.
So far aa known there Is no organised op
position to the measure. Wilkes-Barre-qiib
seem to be wholly indifferent to the
dismemberment of their county. And thla
being, the case there Is every reason to be
lieve that the new county boomers will
come oft victorious."
Need of Compulsory Education. .
Carbor.dalo Herald: "The probability is
that a compulsory education bill will be
enacted by the present legislature. Senti
ment among tho most enlightened classes
Is In favor of such a measure. No state
needs It more than ours."
General Hastings has directed that the
title, "His Excellency," be dropped.

From the Curbondulo Anthracite.
Tho Seranton training school has been
Indefinitely closed, it wus but an expen

the schools of Seruntou arc not likely to
