The Scrarkon Tribune Is a Republi
can paper and It will support the
nominees of the next Republican city
convention. Dare the Scranton Re
publican say as much? :
The Ingrate'e Futile Bluster.
The effrontery of Congressman
Bcranton In posing before the people
of this city aa a whlte-wlnged evangel
of purity In politics has not been lost
upon the public mind. The shameless
audacity of his false cry aealnBt "boss
domination and ring; rule" when of all
the bosses that ever tried to boss the free
men of Pennsylvania, he, In his day,
was the most arrogant, the most tyran
nical, the most overbearing, has duly
impressed the voters of Scranton, and
many who might on other Issues have
been won over to the candidacy of
Captain Moir have thereby been kept
away In sheer disgust.
No one knows better than docs the
congressman, from this district that
the Republican party in this commun
ity turned to Mr. Connell and to Colonel
Ripple for leadership because it had
grown unspeakably tired of the long
usurped sovereignty of J. A. Scranton.
The latter's ..unjust,, unmanly and
grossly offensive methods had Imbued
the rank and Die of the party, its
unselfish and self-respecting element,
with a profound repugnance for his
sway, and It needed only the appear
ance of a leader whom the people could
trust to cause a breaking of the fetters
and a restoration of reputable methods
and standards In the party councils.
To say that the public, which has only
Just achieved Us affranchisement from
the servile slavery in which Scranton
tried for years to hold It, is now dis
posed to smite the chief agents of its
liberation and to rush back In glad
ness to the former yoke Is tp offer a
deliberate Insult to its Intelligence, as
well as to speak an obvious untruth. -
It is not our wish to utter in this
campaign anything which can be con
strued as a reflection upon the oppo
sition candidate for mayor, Captain
Moir. Personally he Is an excellent
gentleman and politically his record
has, In the main, been without serious
ground for criticism. We gladly rec
ognise his right to aspire to any of
fice and shall have no 111 will for him
If lie gets It Nevertheless It is desir
able that his candidacy should be con
ducted frankly and fairly, , with, its
purposes clearly understood, It Is de
sirable to know If he willingly occupies
the position of a decoy 'for J. A. Scran
ton; If he la In sympathy with the
villlflcation, the nastiness and the
braten hypocrisy of the discarded boss
who has sprung to the front as his
special champion; and If he desires to
merge his respectable Identity in the
repulsive personality of the ingrate at
present foremost In his campaign. That
he now stands In such a relationship Is
Indisputable, all the worse for him;
hould he prolong the evil companion
hip, It will be fair to assume that he
has . foreseen the consequences and Is
prepared to accept them.
For, without boasting, we can assure
the directing mind In this so-called "In
dependent" campaign that Its end will
not be attained.' The people of Scran
ton have had experience both with Col
onel' Ripple and with ' Representative
Scranton. They are prepared to draw
comparisons between the two men and
to make an Intelligent choice. .The res
idents of this city know what "it would
mean to them to have the city govern
ment turned over as a personal posses
Ion of the editor of the Republican, to
bs used by him for the upbuilding of a
new , dynasty . like , that . which obtained
In Scranton ' a decade or more ago.
They placed' their trust In Mayor
Ripple In 1886, and they found him
worthy of it. They will not be de
ceived in the present Instance, by the
transparent vaporlngs of the envious
sx-boss who seeks by a notorious fals
ification of issues to find an opportun
ity to slip; back Into political power.
Probably next fall, when, he wants to
be re-elected to congress, the ingrate
will sing a new tune about "Connell
Ism" in politics. i . ; , '
What Would They Have?
The Philadelphia Times keeps up Its
clatter about the vote cast for Judge
Smith in Lackawanna and Luierne
counties, insisting that the large vote
received by the .winning Democratic
Handldate is in Itself evidence of fraud,
ind that unless Smith establishes that
there was no fraud his title to the office
it Superior court Judge will be olouded.
It would seem from the argument em
ployed by the-Tlmee that It Ihcttrn
bent upon Judge Smith to Institute a
sontest against himself. Has there
ever before been an Instance of sued
arrant nonsense? If Judge Terkes and
lie Philadelphia admirers really, believe
I Mat Judge Smith's election was accom
plished by fraud why do they not pro
sttd wtth a contest in the regular war?
It is not 'incumbent' upon Judge Smith
to show that he was honestly elected.
If his opponents believe he was elected
by fraud it Is their duty to contest. To
people living In this section of the state
the result of the election In Lackawan
na and Luierne Is in no wise mysteri
ous. On the contrary It is perfectly
plain. Men of Intelligence who served
on election boards, and who conse
quently had the opportunity to know
how the voting was done, understand
the situation exactly. In these two
counties great numbers of Democrats
voted for Smith alone; other Democrats,
as well as many Republicans, voted onjy
for the three local ' candidates Rice,
Willard and Smith.
It la time for the Times and other
Philadelphia papers to cease their ridic
ulous twaddle about fraud In Lacka
wanna and Luierne counties In the in
terest of Judge Smith. There Is no evl
dence whatever that fraud was com
mltted iri these counties In the interest
of any one. "Weeks before the election
It Was suggested in the public prints
that an effort be made in these wo
counties, and In fact in the adjoining
ones, to elect all three of the candidates
from this section. There was nothing
fraudulent in that. The suggestion was
acted upon by the voters and was sue
cessful. Neither of the candidates
Rice, Willard nor Smith was a party
to that proposition, and they even pub'
ltcly disapproved it, nevertheless u was
acted upon and with results entirely
satisfactory to this section of the state.
A similar movement was attempted In
Philadelphia In the Interest of Judge
Terkes, but failed, and that Is what
causes the clatter by the Philadelphia
Times and other newspapers of that
Our kind friend, the Wllkes-Barre
Record, misunderstood The Tribune's
recent assertion that Pennsylvania
lacked presidential timber. The mean
ing was that this state had no single
statesman of life long experience and
predominant ability, like Harrison, of
Indiana; Reed, of Maine, and McKln-
ley, of Ohio. But In the person of Gen
eral Hastings it has the making of one,
and he already measures up to presl
Overpaid Public Officials.
During his foir years' tenure of the
office of secretary of the commonwealth
William F. Harrity, It is said, received
in fees $66,965 In addition to his annual
salary of $4,000, or $82,965 altogether,
more than double the salary of the gov
ernor. An estimate of the probable
revenue which Secretary Recder will
derive from the same office places the
sum at approximately $90,000. The
Pittston Gazette, In scanning these and
other figures connected with the fees of
state officials, recollects that the last
Republican state platform declared,
among other things, that "all unnec
essary positions and salaries should be
abolished, and expenditures and taxa
tlon reduced," and it suggests that the
office of the secretary of the common
wealth would be a goad starting point
for the requisite legislative pruning.
The generosity which our contempo
rary notes as characteristic of the
pay rolls in the various departments at
Harrlsburg prevails equally at Wash
ington. For Instance, the clerk of the
house, .himself drawing $5,000 a year
for duties performed mainly by subor
dinates, has at his command forty-
three employes commanding aggregate
salaries of $71,308 a year, and doing
work which a private employer could
get done quite quite as well at an an
nual cost of $30,000. The sergeant-at-arms
of the house, who gets $4,500 a
year, controls one position worth $3,000,
two worth $2,000 and a dozen or more
worth from $660 to $1,600, and the entire
work in his department could be done
with half the men at less than half the
cost. In the case of the doorkeeper a
similar condition Is revealed. In his
department 125 employes get $104,314
per year in salaries when the actual
labor' required In It could be secured In
any private establishment at one-third
this expense. This line of comparison
could be followed through all the fed
eral departments with equal results.
There Is no reason except custom
why the secretary of the common
wealth of Pennsylvania should receive
twice the pay of the governor. He
does not have one-tenth the responsi
bility; neither does his work require
an equal grade of ability. The work
in the secretary of the commonwealth's
department would go on without a
hitch if the secretary himself were
never to enter his office In person; but
were the governor to absent himself
from the post of duty things would soon
end in a tangle. The truth of the mat
ter is that the fee system of payment
is Incompatible with honest and eco
nomical government, and should be
changed if It be desired to accomplish
the best results. This applies to all
positions of public trust, federal, state,
county and municipal.
In the Interest of purity In politics
Mr.. Scranton should call attention to
himself as an awful example.
The Nicaragua Canal.
A new plan for constructing the Nic
aragua canal has been - outlined by
George H. Ellsbury of Centralis, Wash.,
which. If feasible, would certainly obvi
ate many objections now entertained to
ward the several canal "jobs" which
have at various times occupied the at
tention of congress. It Is known as the
Pacific plan, and a brief outline of It
The Nicaragua canal. It is necessary
to bear in mind, was first begun by the
Maritime Canal company, which pro
posed to build it with the proceeds of
the. sale of its stock, the par value of
which was $100,000,000. The project
lapsed through lack of confidence, but
not until the Maritime Canal company
had secured from Nicaragua and Costa
Rica concessions for a period of 99 years.
A re-organlzatlon of this enterprise
under the name Of the Nicaragua Canal
Construction company was effected, but
It coulA not float Its securities without
congress' Indorsement, and there ls.de
clded objection to having this govern
ment loan its credit to speculators who,
under the terms of the deal, would be
the only ones to make anything out of
the transaction. It Is now proposed to.
organise ft new company to be known
as the Inter-Ocean Canal company, buy

000 for land purchased from them by
the company (a narrow strip along
either bank giving the company com
plete control of docks, landing places
and storage room) and have the Inter
Ocean company put in the $20,000,000
needed to buy ' the canal as it now
stands. Nicaragua and Costa Rica
would under this arrangement each
name one director and the Inter-Ocean
company would name four,' giving
Uncle Sam a clear majority and the
The plan provides that the United
States government Issue $80,000,0ue in
United States treasury notes to be paid
to canal company as work progresses,
at the rate of $1,750,000 per mile, basing
the work to be done on the canal proper
as forty miles, balance when canal is
completed. United States treasury notes
to draw Interest at rate of 1 per cent
per annum for five years, and to be re'
deemed at that time by 3 per cent gold
bonds. As . the government pays the
canai company for completed work, the
canal company will Issue capital stock
to the government at the ratio of 7 to
8. For $80,000,000 of United States treas
ury notes Issued, the canal company
will turn over to the government $70,
000,000 in capital stock, the salaries of
directors and all operating expenses to
be paid by the Inter-Ocean Canal com
pany. Mr. Ellsbury figures that upon
this basis the canal would be paid for,
out of debt and more than self-sustain'
lng Inside of fifty years, while the gain
to American shipping from quick tran
sit and special tonnage ratings through
the canal would be incalculable. In
concluding his interesting argument
upon this subject Mr. Ellsbury says:
The United 8tates Is not awake to the
Importance of maintaining a large mer
chant marine. England and France are
willing this nation should sleep while their
merchant ships are harvesting and gath
ering in ine products or an .nations, and
making London and Liverpool the mar
kets and money centers of the world. In
the United States we have all the ma
terial. Iron, steel and limber to build our
Fnips. we nave men to manage and sail
them; and we produce everything In this
country to clothe and feed them. Why
this branch of Industry has been neglect
ed is this: During the past fifty years our
thoughts have all been turned toward the
growing West, and railroads have been
required to settle 'the country, and now
every state and territory Is interwoven
with a web of rails until that business Is
overdone. And now the cry is cheaper
transportation, aim our tnougnts ana er
forts must turn to canals and the broad
ocean for relief. The building of the Nica
ragua canal will encourage tht increase
of our merchunt ships which will Invite
foreign trade from all parts of the wide
world, and give the mighty ocean a chance
to contriDute to our ruiure greatness.
There is no doubt that the problem of
America's future development coin'
cldes with the problem of an encour
aged and greatly multiplied merchant
marine. The Nicaragua canal, rightly
built, managed and financed, would be
an Invaluable auxiliary In this double
problem's solution, and the next con
gress will be wise if It shall give to this
important subject early and earnest
According to the Philadelphia Record
the Democratic party Is thankful for
"long life; a tough constitution; and
the friends and the enemies It has
made." Why not be thankful also for
Its coming release from care?
If the Philadelphia papers want to
make Judge Smith the most popular
Democrat In Pennsylvania they will
keep right on abusing him and ascrib
ing evil motives to those who, knowing
his Integrity, resent their attacks.
The only time Mr. Scranton shouts
"reform"is when he is'tut" and wants
to get back "in." His little deception
deceives no one.
There Is one thing about it. If Dal-
sell doesn't get the Ways and Means
chairmanship, he will not sit back and

The Harrlsburs 1 Patriot . (Democratic

for Senator Cameron.- A few days ago it

broadly when he read that Interesting an
