At a time when many good people
are paying money out of their abund
ance to the support of Christian mis
sions in foreign lands, it is inteivstinir
to notice and proper to commend the
efforts of the executive committee of
the Lackawanna Presbytery to locate,
In this vicinity, u home mission for the
secular as well as spiritual regenera
tion of people of foreign tongues. V.'e
understand tho purpose of this new
mission to contemplate, at first, the
instruction of these speakers of for
eign languages in the use of the Eng
lish tongue, to the end that they may
eventually fit themselves and likewise
their children to become useful as well
as moral citizens of this, their adopted
country; and also progressive members
of the Christian church.
There are, iu the upper coal fields,
and near by, probably about 75,0'jO per
sons who do not know how to speak,
read or write the language In which
the laws that nominally govern them
are framed. The two counties of Lack
awanna and Luzerne had, according to
the census of 1MU, a total population
of 34S,J!)1, of which 110.504 were foreign
born. By analyzing the 2ii.su;; males
and females in our own county
who belonged to this class, we may ap
proximate to an idea of what percent
age of these residents do not under
stand English. The census shows that
2S4 were born In Canada or Newfound
land; 6 in South America; 7 in Cuba or
the West Indies; 14,521 in Ireland; 7,517
In England; 1,270 in Scotland; 8,511 in
"Wales; 7.242 In Germany; 1,69!) in Aus
tria; 13 In Holland; 3 in Iielglum; 410
In Switzerland; 12 in Norway; 1U0 in
Sweden; 46 in Denmark; .S53 In Russia;
1,018 in Hungary; 21, In Bohemia; 7S1 in
Poland; 111 in France; 1.2H3 in Italy; 2
In Spain; 7 in China; 8 in Australia, and
r3 born at sea or in countries not speci
fied. In Luzerne county, the number
of Austrian: was 3,C2S Russians, 1.363;
Hungarians, f,lo4; Poles, 7,4us, and Ital
ians, 1,861. It Is no reflection upon
these foreign-born residents to say that
the number of them who are unskilled
In the English speech comes chiefly
from Austria, Italy, Russia, Hungary,
and Poland. Many Austrians, some
Italians and a few Hungarians and
Poles ara educated In their own lan
guage but not In English. Remember
ing that there are, in addition to these
foreign-born persons, almost as many

of foreign-born parentage, are nut yet
being generally educated in the English
language, it seems to us a safe con
clusion that there are, altogether, 73,
000 non-English-using residents of the
region Included within the bounds of
the Lackawanna Presbytery.
Up to this time the burden of In
structing these people In English has
been assumed almost exclusively by the
Catholio church. That church has done
yallant service In this direction, with
out flourish of trumpet or effort to at
tract attention. We would be the last
to underrate the good Influence of the
Catholic church upon this yet unassim
Jlated portion of our population. Yet
it Is growing evident, from day to day,
that, the Protestant churches have a
larger duty In thlsmatter than they have
hitherto discharged. If Instead of pay

denizens of Patagonia the various

The Return of Reason.
The fact that the Indiana senate has,
by a vote of 27 to 11, passed a bill pro'
riding "that In all actions for libel or
slander it shall be sufllcient to establish
the defense, of justification to prove it
by a preponderance of the evidence"

knowledge that libel legislation for sev

extraordinary doctrine, with as much
pertinacity and misdirected zeal as If It
had been tho solemn conviction of the
makers of our laws that editors and

to think that Indiana, and not Pennsyl
vania, leads the way back to common

to Pennsylvania's libel law state pride

Democracy's Last Chance.
Senator Quay's bill to create another
Federal judicial district in Pennsylva
nia is of interest to Sctantnnians in

other things, open Up several new of-
lices. such us Judge, marshal, district
attorney and clerks, and of course this
is a consideration not without couse.

also, to litigants In this section, since it
would spare the majority of those hav.

the now awkward necessity of frequent

pensive journey to Pittsburg a hard
ship out of all proportion to the magni
tude of the Interests lying in this im
Senator Quay's bill contemplates, in
addition to the two present districts a
third district, to be known as the north
ern district, with the court sitting al
ternately at Williamsport and Scran-
ton, where the judge for the western
district now holds court at intervals,
The proposed hew district will embrace
twenty counties, all but three of which
are ''to be detached from the western
districts. Some of these are among thu
most populous and important counties
in the interior o fine slate, and are such
as would find either Williamsport or
Scrauton natural centers for the trans
action of business and generally easy
of access. For convenience, the district
is to have two divisions, one composed
if the counties to which Williamsport
is the handiest and the other of tlu
counties nearest Scranton. The Phila
delphia Press, despite the fact that this
arrangement would separate Pike,
Wayne and Monroe from the territory
now tributary to Philadelphia, says it
"has evidently been well thought out.
The counties have been chosen with
very excellent discrimination, and from
the extreme eastern border of the state
all along the northern tier, and extend
ing to a line somewhat west of the cen
ter, tile additional court with the facili
ties it would offer could hardly fail to
be regarded as a Very decided conveni
ence." Thus Indorsed, the bill will in all
probability soon become a la,w, if not
during this congress, certainly during
the one succeeding, and the first nfllcials
of the court thus established would in
that event be Democrats. Scranton, us
the largest city In such a district, .would
naturally be entitled to the Judge. ThN
at once opens a field of speculation
scarcely second in importance to the
original measure Itself. Would the
president appoint, us his selection for
the nuw Judgeship, Mr. Amermaii, ex-
Judge Smith, Mr. Horn or Mr. Comegys?
Or, if the judg-s should be denied us,
whom would he name for marshal or
district attorney? It Is worth while
keeping an eye on this measure. There
may be music in it ere long.

The sentiment whlcJi has prompted
Senators Sherman anil Quay to proffer
to the Cleveland administration their
best efforts in uid of .any wise measure
calculated to meet the financial .needs
of fhe government Is well expressed by
Senator Cullom, In his recent speech
before 'the Illinois legislature acknowl

however, Into thinking that compulsory
education is n ssary only for those peo
ple, though that, would be a. sulllcient rea
son lor such a law. There are thousands
of children of native parents who can
not read and write, and never will unless
education is enforced. The human heart
Is full of kindness; charitable societies
and charitable Individuals vie with each,
other In their efforts to aid the pour. Tho
most permanent Rood can be done, how
ever, by helping an unfortunate person to
help himself. The boy or girl who faces
the world without any education con
fronts a merciless storm.
"Pennsylvania Is almost alone among
tho progressive states that occupies this
remarkable position. Nearly thirty other
states have compulsory education. The
people of the Keystone state have yet to
follow tlie Injunction to them from Its
founder, 'lvlucate the people,' so far as
Its universal application Is concerned.
At the session of "HI, In advocacy of the
bill 1 then Introduced, I stated that Ill

vania, ami that at bast one hundred
thousand children between 8 and K years
of age were nut In attendance at any

to disprove these statements. Some edu
cators doubted Ihe fact that illiteracy
was Increasing, but they acknowledged

to change my opinion us expressed at that

there was Justification for thut claim.
Statistics will strengthen that position.
Tie; census eif lMti shows ;i difference of
over 7 per cent. In Ihe Inereasn of tho
population of Pennsylvania, und In the In
crease In n! letidiinee of all of Pennsyl
vania's schools. The e-ensus reports ulso
show thut there were In Pennsylvania ill
ISM 1.4i'.7,SIl children between 5 und 17
years of age. In that ye-nr there were not
more than l.ii,'i children In ull the
schools eif this stute, showing the start
ling discrepancy of 4117.818 children be
tween 5 and 17 years of age who did not go
to iiuy school. Let ns divide this unit into
twelve parts. The children between tl and
11 years would comprise two-thirds eif

"Previous lo the last session of the leg
islature the factory law prevented the em
ployment of chl'dren In breukers or In
factories under 12 years or age. The e-d-ucatlonal
bill was made to conform to tho
factory law, so ns to go hand In hand
with that work. The educational bill ulso
contained a section providing for an
(numeration by Ihe assessors eif nil chil
dren between 8 and 11! yenrs of nge. This
census, which Is essential for the proper
enforcement of the compulsory educa
tional bill, would also be of great service
In t-nrrylng out the purpose of the fac
tory luw, und would prevent Its ulaiso by
parents who get little boys to work mis
representing the nges of the children. At
the lust session of the legislature the age
limit for certain kinds of employment
was Increased to 13 years from 12. To
work In htirmoiiy Willi -that change It
would be wise to add ono yenr to tho
period of yeurs In which parents should be
required to educate their children. Tho
factory law has done excellent service. It
Is a Just luw. Its purposes era humano
and are endorsed by public sentiment.
Compulsory education Is not different In

us a child under 13 yi-ars of ago cannot
work, ruther than have him run tho
streets or live In Idleness, with Its danger
ous tendencies, he must go to school. If
wo Buy that, children between 8 and 13
yenrs shall be educated, we have a vast
urmy to reach who do not go to any
school. To repeat, tho census returns
show: Between (fund 12 years of age who
do not go to any school, 2:i3,!Mg; between

uge who do not go to any school, lsl.sr.M.
It would tuke volumes to point out the
losses of this feurful waste of bruin
power. The evils, the crimes, sufferings
und the Injustices resulting from this
monstrous wrong inflicted upon Innocent
children cannot be conceived by mortal
mind. Shocking as it is, It has been going
on In our commonwealth these muny
years, because of the foolish, weak, sen
tlmentul, absurd, almost criminal notion
that parental right and uuthortty extend
to the Inhuman wrong of robbing the
children of all Intellectual training."
Sanctions the Vuugliun Hill,
llnzleton Standard: "If tho bill intro

unable to speak the Knglish language.
The pretext for this Is one entirely for ihe
safety of Liuiuan life, it Is stipulated ill
