It Is a wIbs principle In law that the
testimony of a. scoundrel is Insuffi
cient to convict The character of
William Connell, which has been built
up in this community during many
years of patient toll, careful enter
prise and practiced benevolence, has
been assailed and his honor as a citl
sen called in question by whom? By
a man who sixteen months ago threw
himself on his knees in abject political
and, no doubt, financial beggary before
Mr. Connell, asking literally with tears
In his eyes to be supported in his can
dldacy for the congressional nomina

eented, take the very bread from his
mouth. It was perhaps questionable

caused him, against every teaching of
prudence, to yield to this entreaty a
promise of aid; but it was, at all events,
an error on the side of generosity such
as no mean man would have com
And now, forsooth, this Ingrate, sup

do not approximate to the dignity of se

sentiment, no further answer than con
The people of Scranton have had ex
perience With Colonel Ripple as mayor.
They know whether or not he can be
trusted. The abuse of Jealous factional-

Judge Intelligently between them.
It hu Slopped Over.
There probably is room for doubt
as to whether the board of pardons did
the right thing in commuting the sent
ence of Frank Bexek from capital
punishment to imprisonment for life.
The oontentlon of his - defenders has
been that Bezek was not morally re
sponsible for his crime; but a jury of
his peers, deliberating long and care
tally, found' otherwise, and it Is as fair
to believe that they were correct as it
la to believe In the superior wisdom
Of the board of pardons.
' The action of the board of pardons
In this case Is virtually a slap in the
face of our courts of law. It is in
efteot, if not In intention, an arraign
ment of the regular judicial processes
of the commonwealth as inefficient and
unjust ! We do' npt sanction capital
punishment as a punishment; hut while
It remains the legal doom of convicted
first-degree murderers, we can Bee no
reason for applying it In one case and
having ft shoved aside In another.
Besek's ease excites pity. His love
affair was unfortunate and the treat
ment accorded him by the woman he
hot, outrageous. But if the Lacka
wanna Jury, which had every facility
for getting at and weighing the facts,
and the three Judges of the Lacka
wanna courts, afterward affirmed by
the Supreme court saw no reason tq
excuse Besek's act of assassination or
to modify in his favor the prescribed
sentence for that crime,- we are unable
to see upon what tenable basis the
board of pardons, a careless and per
functory body at best, can Justify Its
The fact seems to be simply that It
has slopped over.
Mr, Scranton ought to try to estab
lish a parity between his precepts and
Lackawanna Doing Quite Well.
The Philadelphia Times Incorrectly
refers to Lackawanna as "the county
With a record for crime and unpunished
murders,",' Lackawanna is not above
reproach; but it deserves to. ,be said
that in recent years very perceptible
and gratifying progress has been made
wlthln'lts borders toward the better en
forcement of law and order. The dis
trict attorney's office today Is in splen
did shape; 'cases begun in the name of
the commonwealth are pushed 'Vigor
ously and the present percentage of
convictions will compare favorably
With that of any past period. - The
lower courts, too, are Improving, some
more rapidly than others,' but all to
some extent If the county constabu
lary were made to walk the straight line
and roundly punished for each devia
tion, the greatest single remaining ob
stacle to good government .would . be
removed. , .'. .'.
It will, of course, be some years be
fore the -non-English-speaking foreign
element In this county will be properly
assimilated, and until that moment ts
reached there will be la this region tut
unusual degree of friction, the conse
quences of which will in many cases be
exhibited in the ' courts, overtaxing
their energies and complicating their
work. But once let the sons and the
daughters of these aliens be taught the
English speech in the schools, and be,
through this opening, brought within
the scope of American ideas and in
fluences; and the problem will for the
greater part be solved. Every year from
this time onward ought to see Lacka
wanna Improve in order and morals.
Already It Is scant justice to couple this
county on terms of equality with Lu
serne. In some parts of which lawless
ness has established itself apparently
as the supreme rule.
The Ingrate's low conception of polttl
cat morals is revealed in his supposition
that the Republicans of this-city can be
A Crude and Awkward Lie.
The lie in politics, in the hands of a
skillful liar, sometimes does damage.
Circumstances have been known to
give the adroitly launched lie a degree
of plausibility sufficient to deceive, for
a time, even men of experience, who
have learned of their mistake only
after the mischief, had been done. But
no such dangerousness characterises
this-dull and Stupid lie which we repro
duce from yesterday's Scranton Repub
lican (Ind.-Rep.): "Ripple's small
band of followers openly claim upon
the streets that no matter what majori
ty of delegates are elected for Moir in
the next city convention enough to
nominate Ripple will be bought!"
That this Is a lie any schoolboy can
see. In the first place, Ripple's follow
ers do not concede that under any
probability will the opposition muster
more than a dozen votes In the next
eltv convention, if they have that
many. When Scranton tried to defeat
RlDDle's nomination for mayor in 188
coming all the way from Washington
to work the wires of his chronic Jeal
ousv. he succeeded in marshaling Just
one vote, and he was far stronger In
politics then than he is today, being
now better known. Hence, if the
friends of Ripple had any thought of
using money corruptly In his benair,
which of course they have not, that
thought would be rendered futile be
cause the opportunity to use It would
not nresent Itself.
But in the second place the stupidity
of the ingrate's lie is plainly exhibited
in Its intimation that the supporters
of Colonel Ripple are engaged In a
curb-stone demonstration of their
political idiocy. The gentlemen who
are urging forward his candidacy are
men of prominence, character and dis
cretion. They are not novices in
politics. They do not vociferously un
bosom to each passer by. They know
the value of silence and are not putting
any free pointers Into the hands of the
or position. The Ingrate's remark-
about them is a stupid insult, tne
clumsy falsity of which is stamped all
over Its ugly face.
Th rprent election returns are a
pretty good recommendation of the
nrpspnt Dartv leadership. No wonder
Joe takes them as personal Insults to
Vindication of the Schoolma'am.
The recent deliverance of Bishop
Spalding, of Peoria, 111., against the
employment of women teachers in our
public schools has caused the Chicago
Times-Herald to look up the statistics
of the subject, and It condenses the re
sult of its inquiry in the following sug

It will be noticed as something more
than a mere coincidence that the nine
states in which the percentage of men
teachers Is over 50 have an average per
centage of illiteracy of 26.4; while the
twelve states In which the percentage
of men teachers Is under. 20 show an
illiteracy of less than' 7 per cent "Of
course," observes our Chicago con
temporary, "this Is not an Infallible
argument In favor of women as teach
ers. But It proves, generally, that in
the states of the union where popular
education has the firmest hold and
where It is most widely diffused wo
men are held in the greatest .esteem as
educators. The schoolma'am Is ac
quiring ground everywhere. . The doc
tors may lament and the bishops de
nounce, but she is here to stay."
As a matter of fact, the male teacher
Is at a distinct disadvantage In the
lower grades of scftool work in which
the child's mind is either turned toward
or else repelled from the beauties of
education. To banish the patience, the
Intultlvedlscernmentand the ready and
tactful sympathy of the schoolma'am
fcom these vital primary departments
of our free school system would be
practically to destroy Its usefulness, It
is well enough to depend on the male
teacher forthe polishing touches; but
to utilise him in the Initial stages of
the work would be exceedingly short
sighted. The Philadelphia Times argues that
the1 casting of 4,M Democratic votes In
this county for Judge Smith alons I
was done at his Instigation. How does I
it know this? How could Judge Smith
have prevented such action? The

Wellman, In Chicago Tlmes-Heraft.
Washington. Nov. 24. Tom Reed's
tonguo has lost none of Its sharpness. lie
tries his bent to blunt its keen edge, but
now and then nature will have Its way.
Not long ana Mr. Reed was temnted by
some of his congressional friends to talk
about the presidents he had known, and
the result was a bit of enjoyable satlrt
In Mr. Reed's characteristic vein. "I
think I understand Mr. Cleveland," Reetf
began. "He is a man who does the bos;
he ean within the limits of his understand
ing. It Is only Just to him to put in thi:
qualification. Cleveland Is courageous, p.;
pecially when he has reason to believe the
