June 7. 1802.
Secretary Carlisle's Speech.
In point of dignity, Secretary Car
lisle's Covington speech against free
silver, which we report In full on pages
1 and 6, Is much the abtat and wisest
utterance yet put forth by th3 recent
champions of sound money, as this
phrase is used by economl?ts of the
Cleveland school. It consists of argu
ment, Instead of epithets, and will no
doubt make many converts.
But that which Is most notable about
It Is the speaker's failure to dellne a
policy carrying Into practical effect his
asserted friendliness to silver. He elo
quently tella what he dues not favor,
but neglects to explain what he does
favor with reference to the future at'
titude of this government toward the
white metal. Would he object to the
free, coinage of American silver at a
ratio, say, of 20 tol? If so, his speech
does not contain any announcement of
the fact. It consists altogether of as
sertions as to what he does not favor;
and offers no clew to the policy which
In his judgment, would Insure an abun
dant, sound currency.
As an argument against the unlimited
free coinage by our mlnts.of the ivorld's
silver, the secretary's speech Is a de
cided success; but as the definition of an
alternative policy It must be classed as
en equally emphatic failure.
A Disgrace to Civilization.
The only law which the Democratic
party has enacted without amendment
since the war Is now declared uncon
stitutional by the Supreme court. The
only other law which It sought to en
act, the Wilson "tariff reform" bill,
was so palpably vicious and menacing
JJmt a group of Democratic senators,
shrewder than their party, averted
some of the wrath which they saw
coming by promptly altering It.
In the case of Democracy's attempt
to tinker with the tariff, we have had
nothing but deficits and disasters; and
In the ease of its socialistic efTort to
- Inflict class legislation we have now
only a frustrated Infringement upon
the Federal constitution. Thus In do
mestic affairs the second Cleveland ad
ministration, after two years of abso
lute power, stands convicted of utter
failure; while Us foreign policy is so
thoroughly humiliating that not even
the cuckoos are poor enough to do It
Whatever the Democratic party may
be worth as an awful example, it Is
vMent that as a governing force It is
a disgrace to civilization.
' Tho Wilkes.Barre Eisteddfod.
For the first time in the history of
choral singing in ithls valley tho Welsh
vocalists of Soranton are united. The
choir of 200 voices which will do melo
dious battle at the big Wllkes-Barre
eisteddfod June 11 and 12, in competition-with
other choirs for tlie chief
prize of $1,300, will represent the com

The Troublesome Aftermath.
In anticipation of the Supreme
court's adverse decision on tho Income
tax, the Chicago Times-Herald's alert
Washington correspondent, Walter
Wellman, recently enumerated somo of
the interesting perplexltlc3 which will
arise in consequence of the law's nulli
fication. These, which may now be put
In the past tense, are as follows:
The government Is not, of course, en
titled to retain the taxes which may have
been paid for Income by thoao persons
who aspire to promptness and who were
not willing to postpone payment until
near the expiration of the letral date of
payment, July 1. Cut the treasury de
partment cannot of Its own motion refund
the amounts received. There Is no pro
vision In tho law for doing this, nor Is it
bellovod that there Is any provision in
any general law which would uuthorlze
such a refunding. Thoso who have nlrenily
paid tho Income tax will, undoubtedly, do
nompclUd for a t'me to continue to he
tho victims of their own seal. Tho money
probably cannot ba refunded except by an
BDnronrlatlon from concr8H. How soon
such appropriation would bo mado. It la
Impossible to say. There in another
problem which will havo a much wider In
terest than that which attaches to the
payment of tho taxes. Tho question is
raised. What Is to become of returns wnten
have been made of the Ineomes and how
can any Impecunious or corrupt subordi
nate of the Internal revenuo survlee be
punished If he shall disclose the secrets
of these returns to unscrupulous business
rlval3, or otherwise Rive them publicity?
Under what law could such disclosures be
punished? The penalty provided for mnk
Inir public the returns or giving any Infor
mation resaiMlns them was severe nnd ex
plicit in the lav; Itself. But now that tho
law hns been declared unconstitutional,
how can revenue officers who violate It be
punished? Would the courts hold that
they were amonablo to a law that has
been declared unconstitutional and void?
Would the courts maintain that a doclslon
which declared the tax unconstitutional
would still leuve In effect the law which
Imposed penalties for tho disclosure of the
returns made? Another question which
will be raised Is, Where will these returns.
which Involve the secrets of the business
of the entire country, be permanently
lodged? Will they remnln unused in
pigeon-holes, subject to the Inspection of
the Idle, the curious and possibly the cor
rupt, or will they be returned to those who
made them? And what provision, can be
nnde for their return, or what provision
will tho government make, for preserving?
Inviolate the secrets which are so im
portant to those who made the returns
and to their business rival, but which are
now of no value to the government?
What, by the way, will become of
those extra deputy collectors who were
commissioned to execute this law?
What will be the destiny of our own
Billy Craig? In short, where under the
sun Is the muddle-headed Democracy
No Crippling of the Public Schools 1
Our eeteemed Philadelphia contem
porary, the Press, argues to the best
of Us ability in behalf of a $1,000,000
slash In the state publio school appro
priation, and rtrlea to make out that
the schools can get along very well
with less money than they received last
year. But the local columns of the
Press, with their graphic accounts of
overcrowded school rooms which com
pulsory education will make even more
crowded, effectually disprove Its edi
Our contemporary, we suspect, knows
full well that It would severely hamper
the work of the free public schools of
this commonwealth for the next two
years should the proposed cut be made;
and it probably knows, also, that there
would be no necessity for such a cut
If the state would draw upon Its $4,000,-
000 reserve fund which Is now lying-
Idle in a number of selected banks.
But If ithe Press does not know this,
the people do, and they will not be
slow to signify their disapproval of any
unnecessary reduction in the sum now
voted to the cause of free education.
A cut In the state school appropria
tions will react disastrously upon the
cutters. Mark that.
Stop Sunday Ball Playing. ,
The argument of our esteemed eon-
temporary, the Truth, against profes
sional Sunday base ball playing In the
Eastern league Is timely and to the
point. The continuance of this unnec
es3sary abuse of the most popular
American pastime will. If not checked,
cause the entire sport to fall into dis
favor, and thus defeat the verf'purpose
for which the experiment has been be
gun. Sunday ball playing constitutes a
plain violation of both statutory and
moral law. The man who plays ball
on Sunday becomes nothing less than
a law-breaker, on a par with. the thief
or the crook; and the management
which encourages htm, to play on thiait
day, which In faot almost compels him
to play. Is scarcely less criminal than
is the procurer who haunts the streets
It will be a blistering disgrace If this
honorable American sport shall be sub
jected to popular odium through th
avarice of a few unprincipled man
agers. It can be regarded as a sure thing-
that the American people will never
permanently ratify a monetary system
under which it may, again become nec
essary for a president of the United
States to bribe a syndicate of bankers
not to empty the federal treasury.
It Is a significant fact that every
prominent free trade organ In the east
Is- an enthusiastic advocate -of gold
monometallism; and that the majority
of these organs frankly scout the posl
bllity of international bimetallism, say
ing without reservation that they do not
oare what beoomes of sliver. It would
be a novelty In American politics should
the Republican party, Ignoring Its past
declarations, ever take common ground
with these Industry-wrecking" ohanv
plons of British political economy In a
crusade against the American silver

Miss Odette Tyler, the charming actress
whom rumor has connected In a matri
monial sense with the Gould family, off
the stage Is known as Elizabeth Klrkland,
the daughter of a Confederate general.
Apropos of that fact, this story Is told
Shopping one day In London she ordered
the cabman to draw up in front of a rather
unpretentious store, as she had forgotten
to get a pair of gloves. Finding what was
wanted she noticed that the place was
full of a marvelous assortment of most
reasonable articles. She made a number
of purchases by the card and finally pre
sented herself at the cashier's desk to
pay. "You're number, ma'am?" he court
eously Inquired. "Number?" she vaguely
asked. "Why, what do you mean?" "I
mean the number of your ticket with
which you shop in the army and navy
stores." It quickly dawned upon her that
she was In a place where she had no right
for, by your number are you known In this
vast Institution, and these tickets are
only allowed to the "army and navy."
The situation was embarrassing, but Miss
Klrkland's ready wit saved her. With
her most fetching, frank smile she looked
up at the clerk and said: "I haven't any
number, but my name is Miss Klrkland,
niece of the admiral and daughter of the
general by the same name, of the United
Stales." "Ah! I beg your pardon," the
clark quickly responded, "the courtesy of
tho store Is shown to the American army
and navy." "Thank heaven for my ances
tors," she said as she bought a pair of
$1.75 gloves for $1.25.
