SCRANTON, MAY 8, 1895.
Our Free Kindergartens.
The paper of Miss Kuthciino II.
ClarK, the KlniitTRnrtner i-nKafjoil as
principal In our free kindergarten
schools for next year, places the spirit
and rationale of this movement In
telligently before the people of this
vicinity. The object of this mode of In
rtructlon Is to plve the rlirht bend to
the Infantile mind at the earliest
growth. The development of the pow
ers of observation, Ingenuity and re
flection, combined with moral and
physlclal growth at the most Impres
sionable age, Is the chief aim.
It Is a mooted question whether nil
our knowledge does not rum? to us
through the senses. Whether this be
so or not, after we have eliminated all
that does come In thW way. whether
moral, spiritual or lntclU"tti.il, we will
And the residuum of underlvcd knowl
edge very small. It was rr.'A o? the
great Johnson that he wnvid roe more
In crossing a street of London thnn
most travelers In solns ar,ni:id the
world. It Is to this perceptive and often
long latent power of the child that
kindergartens appeal with happiest re
sults. The kindness of God-given na
ture is made to enwrap the child as with
the presence of God In His own works.
And strange as It may appear. It
awakens the best and most hopeful
mental activity of the child, Issuing In
moral, spiritual and Intellectual ad
vancement which lifts the child at once
to a high plane, and forces it to sing
as the birds do, spontaneous and glad
songs of gratitude for Its own being.
The mode and detail of the Instruc
tion Is very simple, but It Is very cap
tivating; It Is also profound as It Is
simple, for It seizes hold of the child
nature at once, accords It all Its rights
as a child and educes (educates) It fully,
roundly and effectually. Such thoughts
as these must have been elicited In
tlie head of every thinking person pres
ent at the annual meeting of the Free
Kindergarten association Monday
night. It n an association worthy of
all praise, and the ladies who are giving
It their enthusiasm of labor are worthy
of spontaneous and liberal support. No
organization. can be more cosmopolitan,
for It embraces all classes, creeds and
conditions, and lays the foundation for
the best development of the child to
whatever department of humanity it
Defending Christian Science.
So much Is said, these days. In con
demnation of the practice of healing
the sick by prayer that It Is at least
fair to accord a hearing to the other
side. Apropos of the recent arrest In
Kansas City of 'Mrs. A. J. Balrd, a
Christian Science doctor, "for practic
ing medicine without a license," Judge
.Hanna, editor of the Christian Journal,
of Boston, thus proceeds td carry tho
war Into the enemy's country:
If a person gets slek a doctor Is called.
If the-enso Is a dangerous one, and the pa
tient recovers, the doctor gets unstinted
praise, and his reputation Is at once added
to. Few persons, even nmong those who
believe In the divine, think of ascribing
the recovery to Ond's mediation or power.
They ascribe It rather to the supposed skill
of the physician. Hut If the pntlent rtl'ts,
tho physician Is relieved of nil responsi
bility, on the" specious plot that death
was Inevitable; tbat no "human power"
could have prevented It, and tlint It was
God's will that R should occur. Thus It
Is that all favorable results nre credited
to human skill, while all unfavorable nnd
disastrous consequences nro charged to
the account of the "divine will." It ought
not to require very profound thinking ta
satisfy one of the fallacy and rank Injus
tice of this sort of philosophy.
If It be true," continues Judge Hanna,
"that drugs and medicines are of divine
remedial Intent, ai a matter of further
human reasoning we are forced to con
clude that divine means are Inade
quate and uncertain. We are driven) to
this conclusion from observation, from
Indisputable facts of everyday occur
rence, and from the repeated declara
tions of the physicians themselves." In
proof of which Ithe Judge quotes from
the writings of a score or more of emi
nent phyflclans expressions showing
the experimental and uncertain charac
ter cfthj science of medicinal healing by
means of drugs and material remedies.
He also -quotes from tho writings of
champions of the allopathic school,
showing the contempt expressed by
them for rival schools, and vice versa.
Indeed, through two columns, the Judge
subjects the regular practitioners of
medicine to about as scathing a cross
fire as ever a witness received . at the
hands of an expert cross-examiner; and
proves that, despite all their high
sounding phraseology and assumptions
of wisdom, they, are, in the last analy
sis, mere empirics, unable to foretell
tho consequences of their own medi
cines. Having thus put the enemy to rout
with Its own weapons, Judge Hanna
concludes that "If a farmer should raise
a crop of corn In the frigid zone whore
corn had never been raised, and
where nil traditions said It was Impossi
ble to raise It, tin possibility of raising
It and Uie principle whereby It was ne
compllphed would have been estab
lished, nnd 100 or 1.000 subsequent fail
ures would destroy that possibility nnd
that prlnelde, but would simply Hhow
thnt lusome manner the conditions nec
essary to success had not been met. Po
with Christian healing. Its failures,
when they ilu occur, nre taken up nnd
commented upon nnd heralded nhnmd
with the guatoof delight, while its suc
cesses, though ns a thousand to one,
are passed by with the silence of In
credulity nnd prejudice, nnd tho possi
bility of o healing Is unblushlngly de
nted. Phnrlseclsm Is yet the rule of
mortal conduct, nnd prejudice yet con
trols the world."
It would be Interesting to have some
representative physician lock horns
with the Boston controversialist on this
subject. The lay public Is entirely
willing to let the professionals fight It
out among themselves.
The appeal of the Board of Associated
Charities. In another column, to owners
of vacant lots fur permission nnd
means to put these Idle pieces of land to
good use In sustaining feranton's un
employed men and women should re
ceive an immediate response. All that
Is asked Is that persons who own un
occupied land In or near the city will
permit the board to place men and wo
men at work cultivating this land; and
that others will contribute funds to sup
ply seeds and Implements, those who
do the twins to keep the fruits of their
own industry. In this simple and Inex
pensive manner, hundreds of families
may be supplied with food, both during
the summer, and probably throughout
next winter. The plan has been tried
with entire success In New Yovk city,
IVtrolt and other large cities, and
ought to be even more successful here,
where so large a percentage of the real
estate of Scranton Is at present lying
fallow at n time when many persons are
without work or food.
It Is to be hoped that the large cor
porations will take the Initiative In re
sponding to this appeal. They will
lose nothing by permitting the large
areas of idle land owned by them In tho
city to be used In this humane manner;
on the contrary, they will gain materi
ally In good will and in popular respect.
If these corporations will promptly sig
nify their assent, no doubt many in
dividual lot-owners will follow suit;
and If the money response-of the chari
table public shall sulllce to furnish the
requisite seeds and implements, only a
few days need Intervene before hun
dreds of deserving persons now out of
employment may be ejigaged In profit
able and honorable labor In their own
support. It can readily be seen that
the adtual amount of cash required to
put this plan into operation would be
exceedingly small In comparison with
the beneficent results to be obtained.
But whatever shall be done will have
to be done at once. Seed time will soon
be over, and with Its conclusion will
vanish the present happy possibility.
Let the goodness of this good city
make this one fine effort without de
lay. It Is an occasion where he who
shall give promptly will multiply the
value of his gift tenfold.
It Cannot Turn Bsck.
The one thing which will have a ten
dency to reconcile the people of the
state nt large to the Institution, by the
state senate, of an Inquiry Into the
workings of the Bullitt charter In
Philadelphia Is the plea of those who
oppose such an Investigation that It
would "liberate secrets designed to In
jure the Republican party." What
ever may be true as to Individual mem
bers of that ijp.rty In Philadelphia, It Is
absurd to contend that the party as a
whole can be permanently Injured by a,
public scrutiny of a public matter like
the governm"nt of a great city. If that
government has been properly con
ducted It should challenge an Inquiry;
but whether It challenges or resents the i
proposed Investigation, we do not see
how tho senate can now turn back.
Kvery newspaper In Philadelphia,
and every other reputable medium of
public opinion, has at some time within
the past two years Indicated a belief
that the Philadelphia councils nre cor
rupt; nnd that under the Bullitt charter
It Is dimcult. If not Impossible, for the
public to Institute needed reforms In
that branch of the municipal govern
ment, except through the agency of a
special senate committee. A few of the
newspapers now virtually retract these
assertions, fearing the factlonnl conse
quences of such an Inquiry; but In the
minds of the people the original accusa
tions still stick, and glvo emphasis 1o
tho argument of those who advocate
the adoption at Harrlsburg at the Pen
It is of more concern to the Republi
can pnrtyof Pennsylvania that It should
deserve the confidence of the people
than It should retain the favor of those
politicians In Philadelphia who are act
ing Just now as If they had something
to cover up. ' '
The new management of the Chicago
Times-Herald, while expressing very
positive- opinions in Its editorial col
umns, many of them different from
those to which tho readers of that paper
are accustomed, continues ta. print the
news with absolute fidelity; and reports
an Increase instead of, an expected de
crease in circulation. We see no reason
to question the truthfulness of this re
port That day has clearly gone by in
this country when men bought news
papers because of their ngreement with
what the editor wrote. They nowadays
wlmt, above all things else, complete
and impartial news; and are quite
competent to form their own opinions
concerning that news. If tho editor's
opinion should chance to agree with
ilielr own, well and good; if not, they
can always have the satisfaction of re
llootlng that nt least one editor to their
knowledge has missed his vocation.
The philosophy of the Kindergarten
system of child-Instruction Is beauti
fully expressed by Miss Clark In theso
true words: "To form Is nobler than to
reform, nnd every child In whom we
plant Ulie soed of higher thought and
nobler living will In hls lurn add to the
strength nnd unity of the structure
which wo raise; and ns genernllon after
generation passes away, there will be
lefit those who have ceased to see
through a glnss darkly, but shall see
God, through nature, face to face." A
civilization which spends millions In
breeding lino horses and developing
rare (lowers and plants ought not to be
grudge the paltry thousands asked for
the culture of the mind of the child, nt
thrut plastic ago when tho child "l tin
father of ithe man."
It Is amusing to note with whnt se
reno content that good old Tory, George
W. Fmulley, strokes the fur of the
British lion and swings the Incense of
his praise before sinister Baynrd nnd
the other Kngllsh advisers of President
Cleveland. According to Uncle Smal
ley, we have In the iCorlntu nffnlr
"played with undevlating correctness
the honorable part of tho Impartial
friend to both sides." In other words,
we have seen Nicaragua held up and
robbed In broad day light, and have
neither collared the robber nor dlsap
proved the steal." We should be suit
ably appreciative oT the British esteem
thus won ut the expense of our own

MB. CHITTENDEN REPLIES.
Ho Claims That tho Wagc-uritor Would
Profit by Sticking to Protection and the
Editor of Tho Tribune.
H r : The concise summing-up of my last
letter by "Jtiniotulllu Republican" In your
Ihhuo of tho 4 III Inst., by tho statement
"that sonio people know a great many
things that are not so" puts inn In sym
pathy with tho mood of St. Paul when bo
admitted that tho doctrine he preached
was foolishness to tho Greeks and a
stumbling block to tho Jews; but Jew ami
Greek as nations have pussed away and
the doetrltio still tUnmls. Thu assertion
that called out this strong statement was
this: "It seems to mo a mlstakn to as
sume that this has ever been a silver coun
try since 1MM. ele." Tho law Is quoted
quite fully nnd apparently correrily to
show that It has been, but unfortunately
there are trade laws lis well as national
laws, nnd wlu-ro they conlllet It Is not tho
trade laws that suffer. Tho original ratio
of I7IW of 15 to 1 overvalued sliver In tho
same manner, but to a less extent than
the ratio of Hi to 1 udvocuted, 1 presume,
by "Bimetallic Itepiibllcan," overvalues
silver today. The result was then, as It
will bo now, If tried silver bullion taken
to tho mint, coined, exchanged for gold
and tho gold exported hut our forefathers
apparently did not want to go on a silver
basis, so they practically remained on a
gold basis liy stopping tho coinage of sil
Jefferson's order () to the mint In Wl,
which seems to surprise my bimetallic
friend, and which, of course, was as un
constitutional as his eniburgo act, pro
duced the following result:
Sliver dollars coined 17U3 to 1SO0 1,2r.7.-IMI
ISOfl to ix.li;. Inc. Nono
Now to claim thnt this was n bimetallic
country from 1S04 to 1837 when tho mints
were so closed to tho eolnago of silver
that In fnet not a. slnglo dollar was coined
except probably tho stock on hand In 1S04
seems to mo to nttneh undue Importanco
to the law and no Importanco to the fnets.
That largo quantities of subsidiary silver
was coined Is true, but this coinage Is
always silver and copper, never gold. It
Is legal tender only for a limited sum. It
Is always carried as an unavailable treas
ury asset. Its placo could not bo filled
by paper currency, ami even when coined
It went to tho melting pot steadily until
debased nearly 10 per cent. It hns no
more relation to tho question of a proper
currency basis than llio postnifo stnmps
used ns currency In isii'j. in 18:17. perhaps
tired of holding gold by main force, con
gress debased It S'S, per cent, under sli
ver, cheating the creditors of tho coun
try Just thnt much, but opening tho mints
with perfect safety to silver, which was
worth cents more as bullion than us a
legal tender dollar.
My friend says: "I find that prior to 1873
there were $l!i."i.OUO,000, coined In the United
States nnd that was In silver dollars."
Now, with no unltlnd nppllcatlon of
Josh Billings' wit, I Infer that this was a
slip of tho pen, ns the actual amount was
$7,Wl,2:tH, one-fourth of which was coined
in '70, '71 and I regret that mv friend
paid so much attention to the historical
Introduction of my letter and Ignored Its
argument. From tho accession of Jef
irvrmnt to the exit, of Buchanan our
finances nre a dreary history of blunder
ing Ignorance, of wrecked fortunes nnd
pauperized workmen. If any one cares
to study it, Holies' "Financial History of
the United States," nt the library, is a
very endurable. work. I regret also that
my friend's historical researches should
not have prevented his stating that "sliver
had been demonetized, ns it were, by
stealth" in 1X73. The bill was discussed
In live separate sessions of congress nnd Its
action fully understood. Tho past la gone,
but tho future Is at the door and de
mands decision. I would like to restate
my argument ngalnst free silver colnnsie
or alleged blmetajllsm at 10 to 1. It is this:
That tho present currency consists of
gold, silver, bank notes, greenbacks, etc.,
about Sl.GOO.WW.OOi); also of $1,351,0110,000 of
bank deposits, which In their effect on
prices, wages, etc., are currency; thnt
these bank deposits. In the form of checks,
do 94 per cent, of tho recorded business of
the country today; that the freo coinage
of silver would reduce the purchasing
power of these deposits H,393,ti0,OU0 at
once nnd would contract tho currency to
thnt extent; anil thnt our $uoo,00o.aeo of gold
would also disappear as currency. If wo
should then coin nil the silver produced In
the I'nited States It would require llfty
yenrs to supply from that source the
amount of currency now In use.
If these propositions nre true, no sane
man will advocate such a contraction.
If not. true. It can be easily nnd quickly
shown. I will ndd for tho consideration
of "Blmetalllst" these genernl reflections:
There are three things that stimulate and
diversify the Industries of a nation ns
surely ns some drugs nccelerato the action
or the heart. They nro a protective tar
in", a cheap sliver standard and a depre

good of all, for tho wages of tho workman
are paid In a dollnr that purchases tho
same amount of foreign goods ns the
wares shipped by tho capltnllst. The
ether two rob the wage-earner by forc
ing him to pay the heavy premium ne
tween his wage-dollar and tho money de
manded ly tho foreign seller. To tho
wiige-earnor, tho silver bnsls will bring
