It Is a mere quibble to say that the
known truant has to be . otlW-ially
"enumerated" before belns sent to
achoul. Enforce compulsory eduoa
tlon! The Nomination of Mr. Smith.
What woulJ otherwise hnve beon a
convention of no Importance hao been
Invested with cene lmil Interest by
the nomination at Wllllann'port. yes
terday, of ex-Judne P. P. Smith for Su
perior court Judse. The presi-nco tn
the Lackawanna field this fall of rival
Kate candidacies will enliven an other
wise uneventful campaign and afford
the voters of the county another op
portunity, we believe the third within
as majiy years, to pass upon the buoy
ant ambitions of Mr. Smith.
It 49 unnecessary to speak at any
length concerning the other Democratic
candidate of the Willlampport conven
tion. Personally respectable, they are
politically hopelewt, and after Nov. 5
will ret'ire from public attention In the
precipitate fashion Instituted by Com
modore Sinnerly. But with reference
to Mr. Sinkti more extended allusion is
demand, both on account of the local
compliment Involved In his nomination,
and likewise In tribute to the persisten
cy with which he obeys the call of his
party to marshal It to inevitable de
feat. In this . latter particular, Mr.
Smith display., a loyally to Democratic
princlplm -which It Is to be feared ran
r."t, In Republican Pennsylvania, ever
lie suitably rewarded, unless the con
sciousness of duty; done carries with It
its own recompense. ,
The nomination of Mr. Smith comes,
of course, Vhrougili the grace of Will
iam F. Harlty, and represents mainly
Mir. Harrlty's personal wish. The con
vention was Harrtty's, absolutely; and
he made the ticket to please himself.
Seeing the futility of It In any other
liffht. fhCs was .no doubt the projM-r
t'hlng to lo. It may possibly disap
point the Kerr men, who had a ticket
wVXi SmMh's name rubbed off; but In
view of the eomlnfr Republican ava
lanche, a few Kerr votes more or lem
will cut no figure worth keejdns in
mind. The Harrlty ticket. Including
our good frlemd Smith, will now proceed
to go through the motions of waglns a
campaign and, next Nov-mbe.r, calmly
let It go at that.
Suppose Roosevelt' doesn't close the
clubs. Is that a sufficient reason for
open violation of law on the part of
we dons and dives?
Cuba and Armenia.
Writes Walter Wellman from Wash
ington to the Chicago Tlmes-Herald:
Has the United States a duty to per
form In This la the question
which many men are asking them
selves and their, neighbors. To this
capital have come during tho past fort
night innumberable evidences that this
Is a question about which the people
of the United States are beginning to
think most earnestly. These evi
dences come In the form of letters and
by word of mouth, by newspaper com
ments, by that Indescribable feeling
which permeates the air whenever the
American people are stirred In their
sympathy and tihelr love of humanity.
It Is the belief of many that the time
has come for the United States to help
Cuba In her struggle for emancipation
from Spanish rule. This Is already the
opinion of at Jeaat a few members of
the Washington government. Unless
all signs fall It will soon be concurred
In by- a great majority of (Americans.
One may easily believe that the pres
sure of public opinion will next winter
compel oongreas to: take some action.
It la almost certain that In someorm
or other the national . legislature will
have to deal with;! this question. J!f
once taken up It will be the question of
questions before that body.. Our -do-meatto
policies will for . the. time being
be considered of sac on da ry Importance.
"The Cuban question la a question of
humanity. The time has come when
It should be uppermost In the minds of
the Christian statesmen of the wlrld.
More particularly should It be first in
the minds of the Christian statesmen
of this country. To observers here who
have unusual oportunities for feeling
the public pulse it ewms that the
national conscience of America la grad
ually awakening: to a sense of resHn
slbility In Cuban affairs. The belief
appears to be spreading through the
land that the United iStates baa now
to perform In dealing with the Cuban
question the name humane duty which
Great Rritian and the continental
powers have to perform In dealing with
the Armenian qucstioa, the same duty
which the jhuvits had to perforin in
dealing with dlulgnrla ond Roumanla.
In other words, the 'American people
are lxginnlnK to think the time rle
for putting International politeness
aside and erecting In its place a vig
orous policy founded upon world-humanity.
"To hundreds of thousands of think
ing Americans Spain now appears ns
the cruel Turk of the western world.
To end or mend her rule In this hemis
phere may soon be regarded as the
greatest duty which low confronts the
only western power able to cope with
her. Upon this rapidly growing class
of our people Anns-lean sympathy with
the poor Armenians seems cant while
American sympathy is- withheld from
Cuba. American criticism of Euro
pean powers for permitting the far
away and unspeakable Turk to go un
punished seems inere hypocrisy while
the Spaniard remains ttnde.ilt with for
his crimes at our very doors."
This. N a new view of the question:
but Is It not a true one?

Future English Legislation.
St. Clair McKelway. who has Just re
turned from a two months' vacation in
Europe, thinks that the American
reading public will be surprised nt the
tremendously affirmative character of
the programme of the Salisbury gov
ernment. He docs not share the cus
tomary American opinion that the Eng
lish Conservative party Is necessarily
a party of Inertness or retrogression,
such as is tlio Democratic party In this
country. He believes that ptress of
circumstances. If nothing else, will com
pel the Salisbury cabinet to move
toward a solution of many pressing
problems, not excepting home rule. In
a manner which will make the next six
years memorable In 'English history.
Perhaps the movt daring prediction
made by Mr. IMcKelway Is that within
a decade we phull see that absurd
anachronism, tho House of Lords,
worked over, not by Liberal but by
Conservative hands, into a modern and
respectable representative body, not
unlike the American senate. In sup
port of this prediction he quotes the
recent admission of Mr. Hulfour, tho
real Conservative leader, that the
Lords as at present constituted form
an absolutely Indefensible Institution,
for the prudent correction of which he
would be the first to volunteer. A third
forecast, that Kngland's foreign policy
would be made even more aggressive
than hitherto, may be more easily be
lieved, since, by contrast with our own
ruplne policy, England's has already
gained in force nnd distinctness.
As to the order of these predicted re
forms, the Hrooklyn editor did not ex
press an opinion; but we should say
that the regeneration of the Lords must
In logic come first. Until both branches
of the liritlsh legislature are structural
ly responsive to Hiitlsli opinion, it will
be almost a vain hope to expect home
rule. A fair and uncolored presenta
tion before the electorate of the single
question, "Shnll Ireland have the same
voice In Us internal government that
is exercised by the provinces of Scot
land and Wales, or by the municipali
ties of England?" would, in our opin
ion, at no time elicit a discouraging re
sponse. Hut the field must first be
cleared so that a favorable popular ver
dict could be carried Into effect; and
this necessity clearly Involves the re
construction of the peers.
The difference between Semvtor Mill
and 'Senator Quay Is that Quay realizes
public opinion is Improving. .
Russia and the Saloons.
An Interesting excise experiment Is
soon to be undertaken by- the Russian
government. . In eight provinces on the
llrf t day of nexit July palonn-keeplng as
a. private ibuslnes is to be aluollshed;
on July i; 1897, the fame thing will bo
done In weven other provinces, nnd on
Jan. 1, 19S, tfhe same thing will take
place In the (remainder of tho empire.
Tihe purpose of this experiment Is to
libiTate tlho masses of the lower order
of .RuFslanis from the .tremendous exne-
t;ona of unscrupulous private dealers In
1ntoxlmin.ti.-i, who now, by artfully stim
ulating the TlUKWran passion for strong
drink, practdoally albsorb ttio earnings
of t'he people and at the same time
spread tvaint and crime. Headers of
Tolstoi's wtrks have already been
treated to graphic pictures of tho mis
eries of the drink 'bJniblt as It exists
among the unfortunate poor of Russia;
and It is small wander that the gov
ernment has mt Inst turned its atten
tion in this direction.
It Is Intended to conduct the liquor
trade In Russia under government aus
pices, )n a manner somewhat similar
to tho famous .South Carolina dispen
sary plan. IJquor will not be sold to
those who exhibit aligns of Intoxlcatilon.
The quantity wlhlch each Individual
may 'purctiaeo in one day Is
to be limited; and car will
be taken that . all goods shall be
Intrinsically pure. It is not calculated
to turn the trade Into a source of Im
perial revenue; the most that Is desired
Is that It snail ibe awlf-flustalnlng. And
finally, vigilant watch will be kept for
evidences of illicit selling, In dlscour
affeaneivt of which there Is ever to be
held out the IbleaJc prospect of Siberia.
Such an experiment obviously Is
fraught with great Interest. The arm
of the csar's government if strong,
dan tt beat King .Alcohol?
It la reported tha a fender has al
ready been designed which brakes th
car automatically on coming into con
tact with any object on the track.
That would appear to be a An fender
for use on the ateep gradea of Scran
ton. It la worth looking up.
In Scotland there Is, or was, a custom
whereby the official representative, at
the end of his term of office, is sum
moned before a mass-meeting of his
constituents and required to render a
public account of hla stewardship. Dr.
Parkhurst thinks this would be a good
Idea In the United States, and we're
not sure that he Isn't right.
The Republican presidential candi
date who wishea to clinch his chances
of nomhratlon and election needs only
to declare emphatically In behalf of
American aid toward Cuban independ
ence. The presidential election of 1898 prom
ises to be memorable aa the first one
in which the Republican party will not
have to worry concerning doubtful
We don't see why the iDemocratlc
party should be so continuously partial
to the J Ion. P. P. iSmlth aa the recipient
of Its defeats.
Another thing to be thankful for is
that the base ball agony will soon be
Even If the grand old party had no
glorloua past. It has a brilliant future.

Letter to the Chicaxo Times-Herald:
"When one nation interfere with the do

and cruel to a larxe mass of population;
when promises of reform have been re
peatedly broken; when the conditions are
such that no hove for better thine can
be reasonably entertained; when many
thousand of lives have been needlessly
sacrificed, with n prospect of many more
to fall In vain; when International com

noneomhatnnts are ruined or Jeopardised;
when a lot of cruelty, savagery, butchery,

JOURNALISM AND CRIME.
From tha New York Herald.
In his address before the Medico-Legal
congresa Dr. Forbes Winslow attributed
thla year's epidemic of suicide chiefly to
the great publicity given by the press to
detitis of crime and trials and tho "In
sulllclent power of the legislature to sup
press such publicity." This statement,
cowing frbm ho high an authority and re
llwtliig su strongly on modern American
Journalism, 1 well calculated to attract
attention and challenge t-rlHiiHin. The
claim that suicide is Increased by news
paper reports of crime can only be sub
stantiated by statistics showing that tho
maximum of self-slaughter has been
reached when and where these reiwrts
have been most cummoii anil sensational.
Dr. Winslow oilers no such figures, and
we do not believe they can he given. Oil
the contrary, so fur as statistics ure avail
able on this subject, they point to the op
posite conclusion. They show that In sev
eral Kuropeun countries where the press
lacks the enterprise, and In some In
stances the freedom, to publish the crim
inal news of the day, sum hie Is fur more
prevalent than in this country, where
there Is no press censorship and newspa
pers are free to publish what their read
ers want nnd Journalistic enterprise
prompts. For example, neither lieumark
nor eiaxony can be accused of sensational
Journalism, yet according to published
statistics the highest suicide rates In tho
world are reached there. High rates are
also found in France, Prusslu ami Uaden,
while Austria, Havana nnd Belgium are
nut much behind them. Jn all these coun
tries suicide is probably more common in
(proportion ito iopuliMlnii than In the
I'nlted Slates, nnd In all less publicity is
given to crimes and criminal trials.
Dr. Winslow thinks thnt the extent to
which such publicity 1s carried In this
country hus a deleterious effect on weak
minded persons and should be checked by
legislative ipower. There are, of course,
papers here anil there which print without
stint or scruple far fetched criminal de
tails simply to satisfy a morbid taste or
creato a cheap sensation, and whose pub
lication Is a discredit to reputable Journal
ism. There are also papers whch go to
the other extreme and carefully exclude
from their columns about nil the public
cares to know, but for that reason their
readers are few. Hut the Judicious publi
cation of the legitimate criminal news of
I lie day. giving all necessary particulars
of crimes commuted anil important crim
inal cuses fried. Is an enterprise Imposed
upon a great newspaper by tho reading
public as much ns the reporting of polit
ical events, stale and International af
fairs, commercial matters, sporting
events, and so on. A widely circulated
Journal which would fall to report fully
and promptly nil the news of the day.
criminal us well ns non-criminal, would
fall to give Its host of readers what they
want, what they take tho paper for, and
what they have a right to expect.
To givo proper publicity to crime Is not
only a legitimate Journalistic function,
but a public duty. Crime Is not a private
matter. It !s not merely an offence of
an Individual against nn individual. It
It an offence against society, nnd Its ex
posure, as weli us its punishment, is a
duty to society. So far from having any
deleterious effect, we believe publicity
has a deterrent 'Influence, and hence serves
a useful public end. Hn file criminally in
clined mind fear of exposure Is feur of
punishment. In public affairs nothing is
more conducive to honesty and purity
than the vigilance of a free press In
watching tho doings of public otllolnls
nnd fearlessly exposing corruption nml
wrongdoing. In our courts there can he
no star chamber tyranny when nil the
proceedings lire under the eyes of watch
ful reports. The value of the nld rendered
the police and prosecuting authorities In
the solution of mysteries, the detecting
of criminals nnd the securing of evidence
by enterprising newspapers Is universally
recognized nnd cannot be overestimated.
As for the innwer of the legislature to
"suppress publicity," sneh a power may
lie wielded under a despotism or a gov
ernment censorship, but not In a free
country where liberty of the press Is
guaranteed by the constitution nnd Jour
nalism knows no censorship and Is respon
sible only for abuse of its high preroga
tive. TOLD IJY THE STARS.

Two Good Rules
FIRSTMake your money honestly.
There never was any happiness obtained by the aid of gains ill-gotten. Every
dollar earned of honest toil buys a hundred cents' worth of happiness in every
market on earth. A hundred thousand dollars wrongfully possessed can't buy a
cen't worth of heartfelt pleasure anywhere.
SECOND Spend your money carefully.
While you are earning it by making something which you probably don't want
somebody else is equally busy making something you do want. Don't be worsted
in the trade. Until you find the best place to spend it hold the dollar so tightly
that the eagle screams and the Goddess of Liberty expostulates.
