The Mayor's Message. Tn his first communication to councils Mayor Hailty, after paying a graceful compliment to his predecessors In olllt'e, touches tinon several subjects that merit public attention. Ills stiKBcs tlons, although modest and brief, tire to the point. His advocacy of a viaduct nt or near West Lackawanna avenue, his plea for a puld fire department, his recommendation of amplifications in the park system, his proposal of free public baths and his suggestion of a registry bureau for the bringing to gether of those who want employes und those who seek employment are all well stated and timely. Hut the most Important portion of his message Is undoubtedly that wherein he calls attention to the fact that adequately to govern this rapidly grow ing city will soon require a consider able Increase In the municial revenues, which it Is suggested may be effected without burden to the mass of taxpay ers by an equitable equalization of as sessments. This Is important at this time not because of Its novelty for .ha reoc-nmiendation, as a matter of fact, is time-worn as by reason of Its reminder that th city of Scranton has literally c.if.grown the provisions which have receji'Jy been made for Its gov ernment. AVitn more than 100,000 pop ulation we are in many ways held down in appropriations to the stand ards prevalent la cities with only half our number of Inhabitants. In tho departments of street cleaning and re pair, police, parks and fire this is no toriously true; and In several other departments economy has been forced to the point of extravagance. From a partisan standpoint we might argue against any considerable nujr . mentation of tha municipal revenues while a Democratic administration is in power; but from a broader stand point we cordially agree with Mayor Bailey that it Is tho falsest kind of economy to cripple the government of our city in rltal places out of defer ence to the pinch penny notion that what served a decade or half a decade ago can serve equally well now. The city that gTows like Scranton Is grow lng needs an elastic revenue; and the best appliances of government that money can buy are generally the cheap est. Now that the house has again done tfie rlfeht thing towards Cuba, let the enate make haste to redeem its record Of hesitancy, cowardice and self-stul tification. Why Not Pattlson? The formal withdrawal of the Car lisle presidential boom, followed by the appointment of three Pennsylvania postmasters Rodearmel at Harris -burg, Bogert at Wllkes-Barre and Mips Gerrity nt Honesdale upon the recom mendation of National Chairman Will lain F. Harrlty is a coincidence of note, It may be that it does not necessarily indicate a purpose on Mr. Cleveland's part to repay Mr. Harrlty and his friend Pattlfion for their loyalty to him at Chicago in 1892, when but for these two men Hill would have controlled the Democratic nomination; but It Is noteworthy that there are some Demo- arats of consequence who believe that If Pattlson wants Cleveland's help next July lie can have It. There is little doubt In our mind that next to Whitney or Olney both of whom are reported to be irreconcilably averse to receiving the nomination px-dovernor Pattlson would bo tho most available presidential nominee whom tho Democrats could this year elect. He has prestige as a favorite ot destiny; his personal 11 to is clean and attractive; his church relations would prove a source of material strength; In personal appearance and manner he Is well calculated to inspire enthusiasm; he has a natural knack of giving timely utterance by voice and pen to sweet-sounding generalities that , tickle the ears of the professional re formers without scaring tho profes sional party workers; and most desira ble of all, he has no conceivable kind ot a dangerous record. The delphlo oracle was not more Inscrutable than Is his position on the dominant Issues of the day; and that la just the kind of a man that the faction-rent and prejudice riven Democracy wants If It has any wish to pull together and present an unbroken party front. Another very desirable thing III the Hon. Robert Emory 1'attlson's be half is that ulthough he was much given, in public discourse, to scundlng the keynote of virtuous independence. it nowhere appears that he ever failed In an Issue of purely partisan significance to do as the bosses of his party wanted him to dn. A more Incongruous alliance than that of Pattlson, the Goo Uoo, and Har rlty, the Hustler, could not well be Imagined in cold blood; yet Pattlson not only had the hardihood to form It publicly and in the open, but he also had the finesse to make the Incongruity of It seem by degrees inoffensive to the purer and sweeter contingent to whom he spcc.ally catered. The man who can do that, we submit. Is no slouch. It Is more than t'lcveland can do; and it might be the making of Democracy's chances if, at this stage of the light, they can be said to have any chances left. Hefore Tom Reed can break away from public life he will first have to re fuse the vice-presidency and a cabinet Job. Quay and McKinley. A dispatch from Washington to the Philadelphia Tress, Written soon af ter the departure of Senator Quay for Florida, makes the conjectural asser tion that the senator has practically de cided to abandon his presidential can didacy In behalf of MnJ.ir McKinley. The authority for this assertion Is not given; and there Is in our mind consid erable doubt both as to the truth of the story and also as to the propriety of putting it forth at a time when the person whom it most concerns is several hundred miles beyond the reach of in quiry. It the story be true, there would seem to be a goml deal ot propriety In waiting for the senator to take his own time and means of announcing its purport; and If It be false, the only conceivable effect of its publication will be to augment the already increasing feeling of bitterness most of It entire ly unnecessary which the present can- ! vass has developed. Thus. In either contingency, we consider that the Press, as a now active McKinlcy advocate, has acted Injudiciously in the premises. The article, however, supplies an op portune text for some observations con cerning the relative attitude of the two men of whom It treats. The Impression has generally gone forth that Senator Quay is losing sleep In efforts to de vise ways and means to humiliate Mc Kinlcy; that, In other words, there Is a big uccount of personal hatred and political ill-will between them. We re gret to say that some of Major McKIn ley's Indiscreet friends have at times tried to diffuse this notion, doubtless hoping to profit thereby from whnt Is known as the antl-bosslsm feeling, a feeling which Is especially innrked In certain quarters against Senator Quay. We do not assume to speak by Senator Quay's authority, but from knowledge which is rather more direct than most of the Idle gossip in the newspapers, we do not hesitate to pronounce this entire Idea fallacious. We believe it does both the gentlemen In point an Injustice. Senator Quay is a politician, who has friends to reward and enemies to pun ish. He does not pretend to be above his level: he Is unusually frank and, honest In this matter. He worked hard In 1SS8 to elect General Harrison and as a reward for his brilliant service In that campaign, he was boycotted by the benellclary of his energy, In IS!):; he supported Blaine and, later, Mc Klnley in an attempt to prevent the re-nominatlon of the man who had mis treated him. Senator Quay naturally wants to see a man nominated next June who will remember his friends and not go out of his wuy to punish per sonal service. If he cannot win the nomination himself, he will be likely to be for the candidate who will,' in his judgment, best typify, within reason, the reasonable principle of reciprocity., That man muy be Reed. It may be Allison. As likely as either, it may be McKinley. The feeling between Quay and McKinley six months ago was, to our knowledge, one of cordiality. If it has been milled In the Interval, inter meddlers are to blame. From what we know of Major McKinley, and it Is a knowledge which goes into some detail In a political sense, the public Is mis taken If It considers that he Is desir ous of discouraging active party ser vice or inclined to underestimate the claims of those who, to use one of his own favorite phrases, "bear the heat and burden of the day." Major Mc Kinley Is not a deity; not an abstrac tion. He is a very practical and hu man being, who has gone through the mill from the ground up nnd Is not at all conceited because of his successful aseejit. That he could appreciate the abilities of a political general like Sen ator Quay and that he would feel thankful, practically thankful, for their exertion In his behalf is no stretch of one's credulity and certainly no provo cation to disrespect Since it has been shown by popular vote in this state that Major McKinlcy divides with Sen ator Quay tho favor of the people, wo do not doubt In tho least that when the proper time comes, tho former will acquiesce In the latter's candidacy, and that, too, without any lingering af ter-taste of bitterness. But that time will not come until tho senator's own candidacy Is by him relinquished; and In the meantime this state owcb to him, as Its recognized Republican leader, cordial and unmurmuring support; such support as will not only compliment him but also redound to the honor and good faith of the commonwealth Itself, Senator Chandler Is evidently slowly fitting himself for a dull political thud. The Interest which has been tnlten by the public In the marriage ot Gener al Harrison and Mrs. blmmlck is not intentionally intrusive nor impertin ent; it arises from a sincere feeling of respect for the groom and a graceful Bouse of courtesy for the bride. Be sides, It Is quite within the limits of possibility that this quiet union may yet have a bearing upon the selection of the next president. At all events, there If tiO American so mean as to TI1E SCBAHTON hesitate to offer to Ihe happy prlncl pals in yesterday's ceremony most cor dial felicitations. The selection by Mayor Bailey of Richard J. Beamish for the difficult and responsible duties of private sec retary ia an admirable one. exhibiting both discrimination and good judg ment. It has been said that public men ore what their private secretaries make them. This may be an exaggerated view of the case, but It will not be de nied that In the present Instance the new municipal executive, has called to his aid a gentleman of ability, versa tility and wide acquaintance with pub lic affairs, whose assistance will soon prove Itself Invaluable. Raising a False Issue. The' Rochester Democrat and Chron icle recently received directly from the treasury department at Washington an official statement showing the amount of gold paid out in redemption of gov ernment paper currency from Jan. 1, lfTll, when specie payments were re sumed, tmtll March 1, lSl'C. Following are the figures: UNITED STATICS NOTKS. Jan. 1, liV.t. to July 1. 1W r."t.lW.!U July 1, to March 1, 1S!.... in.LW.lu; March 1, InM, to .March 1, ls!M.'.. 317.8'm,7i'7 Total TREASURY NOTKS.

Total $11,97D,4S7 The time covered In tho table Is divided' by our Rochester contemporary as follows: FirstThe surplus period, front January 1. 1S70, to March 1, 1S93, ilurlnrr which the revenue of the gov ernment exceeded Its expenses. This period. It will be noticed, i3 sul-dlvldeil, to mark the time when the treasury or "coin" notes' came Into existence by the act of July 14, ISMU, known as the Sherman law. Second The deficiency period, from March 1, ISM. to March 1, 1SS6, when the expenditures of the gov ernment exceeded its receipts. This period began, practically, with the ad vent of the present administration on March 4. tSfi:t. Separate figures are given for 1'nited States notes (green backs) and treasury notes (Issued un der the silver-purchase act of 1890) in order to show the amount of each kind of currency redeemed in gold. Our contemporary adds: "An analy sis ot the table discloses a number of facts which have a direct bearing on gold withdrawals, bond issues, the use of the gold reserve to pay current ex penses, aiid the qtie'jtn of maintain ing government currency at par, as as sociated with a revenue which has been insufficient for public expenditures. Here are some Items of the bill of par ticulars: In the deficiency period of three years (March 1, 1S93, to March 1, 189fi) the total gold redemptions were SSG2.K41.10a, or more thnn three and two thirds times as great as those of the surplus period of fourteen years and two months (January 1, 1871), to March 1, 1893) when they amounted to only $99,6:M,37S. In the surplus period the re demptions of United States notes aver aged $:jsr,270 per month; in the du Ilcleney period they averaged more, than twenty-two times as much, or $S,S29,658 per month. "in the surplus period the redemp tions of both kinds of currency (United States notes and treasury notes) aver aged $")SG.0S5 per month; In the de ficiency period they averaged more than seventeen times as much, or J10, (IGI.S34 per month. In tho surplus period the average annual amount of gold paid out In redemptions was about seven million dollars; In the deficiency period tho annual average was over one hundred and twenty millions." We agree with the Rochester paper that these differences are too striking to Indicate that a currency system which gave no trouble during the four teen years of its operation coincldsnt with surplus-breeding Republican pro tection should, of Itself and alone, sud denly break down. The trouble is not with that system, but with the Demo cratic deficit-makers who have crimin ally mismanaged it. The president's attempt to throw upon the present cur rency system a blame which belongs properly on his own shoulders Is a barefaced attempt to evade responsi bility by raisins a false Issue. ISSTBICTIVE FICIRES. From tho Rochester Post-Exoress. During the administration of President Harrison tho interest bearing debt resting iinon the country was reduced as follows: 1x90 l2-j.lK0,Wi0 1KH j:i5,ono,t)MO 1NB 4,000,tK0 isia io,uoo,iiuo Total $310,000,000 Thus far durng the administration of President Cleveland this same national debt haB been reduced as followsJ Nothing Not hlng Nothing 1S'9"i lSSM Total The Harrison as follows: 1890 Mil 1892 1893 .

Another moral Is that the blessing of free trade so far as It Is conferred by tho Wilson law conies enormously h!g!i. The $3t)l,W.l,0"i) of new Interest-bearing debt Is the price tho American people ore calle l upon to pay for substituting a Democratic tariff for a Republican tariff. If Harrison hnd been re-elected and the policy of protect ion had not been Intrrcforcd wHh there would have been no occasion for any borrowbig, since the nation would have lie ti iihim djinlly able to meet all Its expenditures with Its Income. POLITICAL POINTS. ' The action of County Chairman Howard Lyon, of Lycoming, In using his olllce to further by unfair menus tho candidacy of Kilns Deomer for national delegate, wis successful' at the polls, 1h unlet to the strong McKinley sentiment In that coun ty, but It none the lesB merits coivsuro, Lvnn Ignored the i.)uay candidate for dele, nate, Mr. Parsillis, und printed tickets with Dpemcr's nun on them, which he sent out to voters with the rf vrpsontn'tlon that ll was done by the authority ot the county executive committee." ' If tho county executive committee gave any TRIBUNE TUESDAY MOBN1NG, APBIL 7, 1896. such authority, which is doubtful. It over stfiiptM) lis prerogative and should t called to account. If Lyon misrepresent ed, his victory will be in the end a cosily one. Major McKinley ran well affuril to be tpared the !mpulrllce of such uls reput.ilile championship. We do not, un der l:u circumstanced, feel called upon to ju!n the Philadelphia Press in-tts conr Kratulutlons to Attorney General McCor niKk uon a victory won by such tactics.

A man may smile nnd yet have a Nile green tusto in his mouth. Do not expect to distill mainle syrup from bass wood. This rule holds good in politics. Regard with suspicion opinions that are yelled from the house tops. The speaker often thinks otherwise. LL & CGfiifLL 131 AND i:3 K.
