It la worth noticing by self-respectlnc:
Democrats that the Democratic cam
paign manuiteis have takon the ex
Ropubllcan Benedict ArnolUM to their
bosoms, ami now upeak of them an part
of their party. There isn't much doubt
that there are many Democrats who
will not care to assoc iate with or be un
der obligations to traitors.

character and standing from the
charge, repeatedly madu against him
by opponents In the mayoralty fight,
that when elected he would In some
manner be "controlled," 'that In other
words he would not be free to act in all
emergencies as his ripe Judgment ami
Bound conscience would prompt, woulil
be to offer insult both to him and to his
friends. We prefer to think that the
people of Bcranton, through their many
years of active and Intimate associa
tion with Colonel Ripple, have come
to know him too well to give attention
to these artful political poisons In
stilled into the canvass by grudge
bearers and envenomed enemies. We
prefer to think that in the manly char
acter which he has built up in this
community. In the reputation which he
has made for unostentatious generos
ity, energetic liberality and Indomitable
public enterprise, there Is something
firmly proof ngalnst the busy tonguea
of slander and the malicious breaths of
misrepresentation which r.ow try to
asaall him for belnsr loyal to his life
long friend and business assoclute,
It bespeaks the utter cowardice of
these attacks that they do not meet
their object manfully in the open, but
instead skulk behind the thing of
straw which factional malevolence has
set up for the deceiving of voters and
labeled "Connellism." Contrust this
treacherous bushwhacking, this foot-pad-ln-the-nlght
method of attempted
vicarious assassination .with the hon
orable tactics invariably pursued by
Colonel Ripple in meeting his adver
saries face to face, and you have a
first-class example of the difference
between sneaks and men. ' This may be
plain speaking; but it is precisely In
accord with the character of the Re
publican candidate for mayor of this
city, who would prefer defeat a thou
sand times over rather than to seem
In an attitude of wishing to go back
on a friend.
There is, however, no possible danger
that defeat will be his portion because
of his cordial and iiimate relationship
with one of the makers of the city of
Scranton. The futility of the hue and
cry against "Connellism" among
thinking voters has been established
upon occasions which lacked some of
the elements that give strength to the
present Republican campaign; and it
will be again demonstrated, one week
from Tuesday, in a. manner likely to
prove Instructive to those who make
personal vilification their sole stock in
One of the Interesting developments
Of the present campaign is the activity
of the Democratic papers, especially
the West Side editorial writer for the
Times, In trying to tell Republicans
how to vote at the approaching elec
tion. We fear that if Republicans
made a practice of going to the enemy
for advice, they would be constantly
Pensions for Teachers.
One of the subjects which may at
any time be expected to arise for legis
lative attention In this state ia that of
providing state pensions for faithful
school teachers incapacitated in the
Una of long service. The subject has
already come before many bodies of
teachers, and the sentiment In favor of
pensions Is clearly growing with much
rapidity. In Philadelphia It may be
said to have reached the dignity of an
active propaganda; and when we re
member that It has been seriously pro
posed in this state to pension common
pleas Judges, each of whom receives
from $4,000 to J7.000 a year salary, the
right of the Ill-paid Instructor in our
public schools, whose work In at the
- base of all true progress, to Btrlve for
at least equal recognition will be diffi
cult to question.
In this collection some Inte'restlng
figures have recently been presented
by A. Tolman Smith, of the United
States bureau of education. From an
article by him It appears that by a law
passed seventeen years before the es
tablishment of ths present republic the
French civil pension list was extended
to Include teachers. The pension is
available) for teachers 60 years of age.
who have given thirty years' service.
Under some circumstances It is avail
able at 65 years of age, after twenty
Ave years of service. Special provi
sions are made for those incapacitated J
from si nice by accident, severe Ill
ness ami similar ruuneH. The slate re- :
UIi:h live per cent, of the suiury eat h j
month, and nlxo one-twelfth of the
first year's salary, and of endi sulme
fl tic nt augmentation toward the pen
sion fund. The amount of the pension
Is calculated at one-sixtieth of the
mean salary of the last six years for
each year of service, a rating which
gives as n maximum annual pension
one-half of the mean annual saluiy.
The ircncral regulations In Prussia re
specting pensions for teachers are
summed up by Mr. Smith as follows:
Twenty-five per cent, of salary after
20 years' service; 60 per cent, after 30
years; "5 per cent, after 40 years, and
the full salary after 50 years. The state
requires all teachers to pay an annual
premium Into the pension fund, rated
at 1 per cent, of a salary of $400, at IVi
per cent, of salaries from $400 to $1,000,
and 2 per cent, of all higher salaries.
It frequently happens that the city or
commune pays the premium for the
teachers, and also adds to the amount
of tho legal pension.

least, may be continued after his death
to his widow and minor children. In
the other German states, und ulso In
Holland, Uelgium, Denmark, Austria
and Russia, where the pension usually
ranges between $200 and $100, the pen
sion is a feature of the educational
system. Turning to the Scandinavian
peninsula, Mr. Smith finds the office
of teacher held in htsh esteem.

It Is proposed by the teachers of Phil
adelphia to establish a pension fund
Independent of state legislation, by
taking a Hmall percentage from the
salary of each annually and placing It
In a fund under the control of a board
of trustees composed, say, of a repre
sentation from the board of education,
from councils and from the teachers
themselves. The fact is cited that in
Detroit such a system is already In
successful opeiAtlon. By a law of the
state of Michigan, a deduction from the
annual salary equivalent to one per
cent, may be made from the teachers'
sularles, and to this may be added the
sums deducted from the teachers' sala
ries because of absence from any cause.
The teachers, after twenty-five years
of service, may be retired on a pension,
which is not to exceed $100. While this
sum Is not a bonanza, and Is almost
ridiculously small as compared with
the state pension proposed for Judges,
It Is an agreeable lift toward pecuniary
independence after the limit of wage
earning capacity shall have been

An Iridescent Dream.
A number of Chicago gentlemen,
eminent In public affairs and actuated
by the purest motives, have joined In
an uppeal to the public asking it to
Improve the occasion of Washington's
birthday on the 22d Inst, by holding
meetings In all parts of the land and
passing resolutions urging that here
after all differences among the Knglish
speaklng races be settled, not by war,
but by arbitration.. It Is their wish
that resolutions embodying the desire
of the American people for peace and
Christianized methods of adjudication
may be forwarded to President Cleve
land and Queen Victoria. The address
which these gentlemen have Issued In
explanation of their purpose ia beauti
ful and eloquent. It says:
The suddenness with which the possibil
ity of hostilities broke upon the whole
people of the United St.ites and Great
Uritalti, wholly unexpected, profoundly
disturbing, fraught with peril tij th en
lightened character of both nations, to
civilization, prosperity, property and hu
man life. Is sufficient reason why the peo
ple of both countries should employ their
strength, not In preparations to destroy
each other, but In assuring peace between
the two nations upon eternal and Immova
ble foundation. On the 22d of February
the people of the I'nitecl t talcs will eele.
brute the birth of George Washinpton.
Let the people make that clay even more
arlorious by lnauc;urattnK a movement for
rrementing all the Knglixh-speaklng people
of the world in peace und fraternal
With the purpose of this movement
every intelligent man must be In
hearty sympathy. Its aim Is in the
highest degree philanthropic and un
selfish. At the same time, It is the
simple truth to say that an era of war
less arbitration is only an Iridescent
dream, the rapt contemplation of which
may give both pleasure and profit, but
the realization of which will never be
seen this side of the millenlum. The
spread of education and religion may
In the long run tend to reduce the
number of wars, by discountenancing
those which have their origin In
sheer bravado or territorial greed.
This at least Is open to hope, if not as
yet to presumptive proof. But mote
than this Is quite out of the question.
War is a necessary evil; with certain
ciualllicationn. It Is even a desirable
wll. It cleanses the body politic,
tones up the political system, casts out
Impurities which propogate in peace
and is, upon occasions, a mighty whole
At the same time, it should be the
last resort. 1
There Is a good deal of the Spanish
Idea of war news In the local Demo
cratic press these days.
Railroads vs. Canals.
Senator Quay's resolution authoriz
ing the appointment of a commission
to determine the cost of procuring for
the federal government control by
purchase of certain interior water
ways, notably those between New York
harbor and the Delaware river, be
tween the Delaware river and Chesa
peake bay, and between the Chesa
peake and Albemarle sou rid, is under
stood to be the first step in a general
programme of .roMi.--d Internal l:n- j
ptovcineiits. f')r which the senator
wants cuncfrcss t'i appropriate a cer
tain sum of money yearly for a period
of years. To this end he has linollielal-
ly suggested the levying of a duty on i
sugar sutllcient to provide special reve
nue amounting to not less than $1-
000.000 a year.
Should these canals be bought by tho
government. Senator Quay's plan con
templates their deepening and widen
ing so as to accommodate our vessels
of war, thus enabling their transfer
without venturing upon the open sea.
Apart from that, the advantages of
the plan to general commerce are self-
evident. With the great lukes con
nected by canals with the Mississippi
river, and this in turn connected by
waterway with the Atlantic seaboard,
there would, it Is believed, be such a
quickening of Internal commerce and
such a growth of hitherto undeveloped
sections as would soon more than re-
pay every cent of the first cost.
The productiveness of what was once
known as the "great American desert"
has become such as to overtax In ordin
ary times the best facilities of the com
mon carriers by rail. The rates, too.
of long haulage by rail act as a Bcrious
Impediment to that free and unreittrlct
ed Internal commerce which la neces
sary to the fullest welfare of our peo
ple. Many persons believe that the so
lution of these and kindred problems
of Increasing gravity Is ultimately to
be found In recourse to the canal sys
tem of haulage which was unwisely
obscured a generation or so a3 by tho
tinli of speculative capital into trans
continental railways. i
While we might have known better
than to expect otherwise In a cam
paign In which Its whole stock of argu
ment Is abuse? nnd misrepresentation,
we have nevertheless been surprised
at the Scranton Times' gratuitoilV re
flections on Senator Vaughan. Kven
If the Times has no scruples about tra
ducing an opponent, we should think It
would have political Judgment enough
to cause it to refrain from issuing a
wholesale! challenge to his many Dem
ocratic friends to show their confidence
In his Integrity by repudiating at the
polls the Democratic campaign organ's
unwarranted slanders upon him.
The decision of Judge Mayham de
clining trf grant "Uat" Shea, the slayer
of Robert Ross, a new trial, on-account
of McGough's fake confession, la a
notification to Senators Murphy and
Hill that with respect to the independ
ence of the Empire state judiciary from
political pressure or control, "things
are different now."
The surprise of London bankers at
the success of our popular loan will
probably be followed In due season by
other surprises of similar import. The
United States has played second fiddle
to the bankers of Europe long enough
to know better.
The decision of the Democrats In the
house to vote against censuring Bay
ard Is a sorry Illustration of the follies
of blind partisanship. Bayard's speech
was a national insult, damaging to
Democrats no less than to Republicans.
Ex-Collector Cooper nominates Sena
tor Quay for the presidency. The sen
ator will probably prefer to remain
quietly In the senate and keep on good
terms with the next president.
An apology from Dunravsn Is neces

THE NEW SHADOW PHOTOGRAPH.
W. I-cC. Stevens, In Troy Times.
Several weeks have now elapsed since
tlit. announcement of Professor Roent
gen's discovery at Wnrtzbiug that un
der appropriate conditions a photograph
may he taken by utilizing rays that pass
through media which to tho eye arc per
fectly opuqitB. While It cannot yet lie
said that the explanation is posesd even
by Roentgen himself, it is possible now
to give an account that is less mysterious
than what was first afforded In the col
umns of the daily press.
A familiar lecture room experiment is
that of sending an Intermittent electric
current through a nearly vacuous tube,
Into the ends of which metallic elec
trndes have been sealed. Prom one of
these conductors, called the kathode, col

other electrode and to the glass of tha
tube. Thefce kathode rays ore readily vis.

original course by a inuunet. I'p to u

fessor Roentgen noticed that an effect
was produced upon a phato,tr:tphi-- plate

him to tesi the efficacy of a variety of pro

that a peculiar and hitherto unknown spe

famous, discovered that kathode rays
could be transmitted through cpn'iue

ments on this subject. Roentgen's discov
ery, therefor, while entirely orlKinai,
cannot be called wholly new. Ho has at

any of his predecessors. His results have
been already confirmed by several physi

always accompanied with absorption, even
In the case of common llaht. The X-rays

REASONS mil THE VI.WH'CT.
Editor of The Trlbure.
Sir: Please permit me a small space
In your valuable paper to express my .
views on t!ie coming viaduct. Briefly
stated, there are many reasons which I
consider Important that voters of this
progressive city should generally, Irre
spective of their choice of party anl can
dldates. vote for the viaduct. Any one of
ordinary Intelligence, who has had Of
casion to travel to anj from fhe West
Side. will, without ht-sltatli'i. decide mat
It is indispensable to the safety of lives;,
as well as a necessity to have an unim
peded roadway, so that the now often
times long delays at the railroad crossing
will be disposed of.
Further, the viaduct Is needed In order
to sustain the true established reputation
abroad, that this city Is one of ths most
progressive towns within the fulled
States. The rapid growth that lias taken
place here tlie last fifteen years is mar
velous and Instead of having :i city or
"villages," as Mr. Dickson recently re
marked, let us all In the city. Irrespective
of locality and partytsm, vote for the
vinduct, and make It a compact city
worthy of its name.
There Is no doubt In my mind that the
3tontphlng advancement of our city Is
largely clue to the members of the board
of trade, which Is composed of some of
our best citizens, who are always on the
ulert to advance the city's Interest, and
hence It iu Incumbent upon the voters gen
erally, now that the opportunity Is at
hand, to prove that we appreciate their
good work by doing our duty and voting
as they recommend, for the viaduct, there
by making this one solid, compact city,
Instead of a sectional city, as It now it.
