Election Day, Nov. 3.
Recognizing tho unusual Interest tak
en by the people ot Scranton this year
In the national snort, The Tribune haa
sent a staff representative with the
Scranton base ball club on Us Initial
tour and his reports of the games will
be as complete and accurate as If the
club were playinK on home grounds.
We scarcely need to add that In Its re
ports of sporting news The Tribune la
determined to surpass all comietltlon.
Silver Men Will Not Bolt.
The decision of Senators Wolcott
and Shoup, reinforced by that of Gov
ernor McConnell of Idaho, to abide by
the decision of the St. Louis convention
on the money question and to remain
loyal to protection even though the ver
dict of the Republican party be for the
present unfavorable to bimetallism, is
not only sensible but significant. It la
probably not believed by either of these
advocates of free silver coinage that
the convention of June 7 will make any
noticeable concession to their financial
views. That that convention will nom
inate Major McKlnley, who Is of all the
candidates now before the party the
one most favorable to a liberal use of
Bilver In the currency consistent with
fidelity to existing obligations. Is seem
ingly assured; and to this slight extent
mav the silver coinage men feel that
their opinions have been considered.
Hut the platform, as any child can now
foresee, will be a blunt declaration for
the gold single standard; and the fact
that these three conspicuous sllverltes
are willing to abide by such a plutform
in preference to abruptly bolting party
ties, proves that they anil presumably
their constituents are not the hasty and
hare-brained extremists that they have
been pictured as being.
' As the case now stands the Republi
can party, notwithstanding its present
adherence to gold, is a better friend to
silver than either the Democratic or
the Populist party. While the last
.named party professes to be for silver
coinage, In reality it is for sheer flat
money, and would. If It could, undo en
tirely the Intrinsic value of our cur
rency, and thereby plunge the finances
of the country Into the wildest chaos.
As for the Democratic party, that por
tion of It which represents It officially
is the direct Instigator of the present at
tack In this country upon silver and not
only would be content to see silver en
tirely eliminated from the mints of the
world but would also, had it the power,
aggravate the present mischief that Is
o largely its handiwork by contracting
at one step our already none too ample
circulation by the retirement of every
outstanding treasury note and green
back. The position of the Republican
party- today Is lii favor of the firm
maintenance of the present monetary
standard, which Is gold; but It has no
where given Indication that It would
not welcome such a contingency among
the principal nations as would enable
it to feel safe In substituting the bimet
allic for the single standard. In this
respect it stands alone among the po
litical parties of our time.
' Furthermore, the Republican party Is
the; only party ' which holds out to
friends of Bilver the inducement of a
debt-paying, surplus-creating protec
tive tariff, under which the balance of
trade brings gold to our shores Instead
of Bending It from them. If binietal
. llsm is ever to prevail again in Europe,
It will never be while Europe captures
the lion's share of the profits in our
foreign trade. So long as Europe can
at will drain our gold !ny Its banks
and sell it back to us at a fancy mar
gin, Europe will not be likely to take
steps toward the rehabilitation of sli
ver. But let the United States, on tho
gold basis, once give Europe a whole
some drubbing at her own game and
that, with our vastly superior" natural
resources, our greater Inventive skill
and our more manifest energy, we can
One day do this, under the stimulus of
the protective system, does not seem
altogether Improbable and It will bo
"trange indeed If Europe Itself will not
turn to .bimetal! Ism In self defense.
One thing at leaBt la certain. With
out protection,, bimetallism' would do
us ho good. Of the twoj protection Is
. the more necessary; hence for Its sake
those who favor the remonetlzatlon of
silver may without stultification remain
loyal to Republicanism, even though its
declaration on that one point be unsat
isfactory to them.: . . ,(,..)-. . .
, . 1 v ' ---,' ;
' To Field-marshal KohlsaaT. belongs
most of the credit , for. McKlnley's
Bprlngfleld vlctdry. -He has certainly
established his claim to the. leadership
of publlo opinion in Illinois. . ,
, It U a hahlt of our Democratic friends
to refsr to Senator Quay ti eontemptu
mu terms as a, boss. But it U worthy
of notice that the only boss in Penn
sylvania who stands for the unit rule
gag in national conventions Is a Demo
crat yclept Harrity. :
Senator Cameron has reached the city
of Mexico and submitted to an inter
view in which he reaffirms his confi
dence in the ultimate triumph of bimet
allism. Senator Cameron at all events
has the courage of his convictions.
It will reassure those Republicans
who believe that William McKlnlcy's
nomination and election to the presi
dency are practically assured that this
probability of tho near future already
sits heavily on the stomach of the In
consolable "Larry" Godkln. Being con
stitutionally opposed to whatever
smacks of Americanism and Inherently
predisposed to bow down before what
ever pleases Great Britain. It 13 entirely
natural that Mr. Godkln, In the ripeness
of his political biliousness, should mark
McKlnley wl.h the hit;'h honor of his
disfavor. For has not McKlnley stood
for protection and thereby mortally of
fended the English?
In an article which Is erroneously
given the lending place In the table of
contents of the May Forum, Mr. Godkin
volunteers at considerable length his
views of the political situation, and It
need scarcely be added that those views
are full of gloom. His conclusion Is
that the Republican party. In Its search
for a standard-bearer, has reached "a
region of extraordinary Intellectual
poverty and moral weakness," and he
thinks that the election to the presi
dency of Mr. McKlnley would be noth
ing less than a national misfortune.
But before he draws rein at this pessi
mistic terminal, the sad-eyed prophet
If the Republicans elect the presMnt
next fall and have n majority l txn.li
houses, they will probably puss soinetiiili:t
like the old Mi-Kinky tariff bill, ami lln-y
will Kenorully suppose that this will bilittf
in an era of prosperity; but ll will not do
so any more than the old McKlnley tariff
which led to the terrible defeat of IWi. It
will be full of excesses and nbuses which
will bring about anotlur react Ion, and
there will then be In a few years another
kind of tariff with a similar result. Uneo
a community adopted the plan of getting
rich by legislation It bids good-bye to
steadiness. No matter what acts are
passed, the mass of .the population remains
poor or falls in business, und then lays
the blame on the legislation or on the leg
islators, and tries new men or new meas
ures. It has always been so, anil will al
ways be so. The government of the day
Is always responsible for both the weather
and the crops, anil this alone will make
McKlnley' election a national misfor
tune. It Is not that he will make a pro
tective tariff tha we fear, but that he
will make another tariff which people will
not put up with very long.
If the new McKlnley tariff which
Brother Godkln correctly perceives as
a certainty of the near future will suc
ceed as well In furthering the develop
ment of American Industry as tho old
did until Its good effects were neutral
ized by the dread of Democratic exper
imontatlon, the great majority of Amer
ican electors will be satisfied. The lat
ter law may not have been perfect In
all Its details. In some schedules It
may have gone a trifle higher than was
really necessary, although thle, if an
error at all, was manifestly an error on
the side of safety. But In comparison
with the mongrel deficit measure which
took Its place, with Its dread concomit
ants ot doubt, debt and disaster, and
its Infliction upon the nation of bil
lions of dollars' loss, It stands forth
today In the memory of the American
people as a success so pronounced that
all tho chatter of all the mugwumps
from Portland, Me., to San Diego will
not subtract one gleam from Its luster.
In enumerating the causes of Major
McKlnley's popularity one should not
forget the opposition to him of the
New York Evening Post
America's Real Discoverer.
The fact that the people of Bristol, on
the west coast of England, are prepar
ing to celebrate, on June 27, 1897, with
fitting pomp, the four hundredth anni
versary of the completion of the first
of the voyages of western discovery un
dertaken by John and Sebastian Cabot,
the practical result of which was that
North America became a possession of
progressive England Instead of a de
pendency of retrogressive Portugal or
Spain, Is of more than casual Interest
to the people of the United States.
While Columbus antedated the Cabots
In the honor of finding land In the un
known western seas. It Is pretty well
conceded by modern historians that it
was the Cabots who first set foot upon
the mainland of North America. If,
therefore, we owed to Columbus, four
years ago, the sentimental debt which
was so magnificently liquidated by the
commemorative, dedication of the Chi
cago World's fair, shall it be said that
we are ready to Ignore the more prac
tical obligation under which we as a
nation rest to the two Intrepid marin
ers of mother England?
Our consul ut Bristol, Lorln "W. La
throp, well says upon this subject:
It should be for the United States to
take the initiative and not Bristol. A res
blent of Bristol, in a Bristol ship manned
by a Bristol crew, pre-empted the conti
nent of North America for the Enitlli-h-spcaklng
race. The primary end funda
mental title of the people of the l.'nited
States to the soil of their country rests se
curely on the Cabot voyages. A vast ter
ritory wus reserved for the expansion ot
England by these Bristol expeditions, and
the great nation that we have built up on
these pre-empted lands should seize next
year's opportunity to honor the Cabots
and to pny a graceful compliment to Bris
tol. 1 make no foolish claims for !he
Cabots. What they actually accomnlls'.iea
was to take possession of the country la
the name of tho kintr of England, and
their action was tacitly recognised by
Spain and Portugal In the most praelle.il
and effective way. Jn'apltQ of the fact
that neither of thefd two countries ever
attempted to found a settlement in North
America, they claimed between them ill
the New World. The famous bull Of Pone
Alexander VI., issued in 1493, divided all
tho New World between Bnnln nml f..i:
lugal. England, thoush a Catholic coun
try, was not even considered, and wh-n
John Cabot asked Henry VII for permis
sion to gall on his first expedition the
Spanish Ambassador at London advl.;ed
his sovereigns of the circumstance. He
rerelved from Ferdinand and Isabella,
however, Instructions to Inform Henry
that England was free to hazard tho pro
ject, but must tnlto cars that the enter
prise should be carried out without pYeju
dlce to the rlirhts of Spain and Portugal.
As subsequently set out, these rights wero,
under tho Pope's bull, as defined by .tno
treaty of Tordeslllas. that Portugal
owned Labrador and Newfoundland, nnj
that. Spain owned the mainland to the
south; but no attempt was made to enforce
these barren rights. England whs left to
Develop the discoveries of the Cabots lis
Consul Lathrop believes that there
could be devised no better way of com
memorating the deeds of the Cabots
than by the presentation to the city pf
Bristol by the United States of a statue
of Sebastian Cabot, of whom an excel
lent likeness has been preserved. He
suggests that it.be erected In Bristol
by the bank of the river whence the
vessel, 299 yVars ago come next Wednes
day, set out on Its memorable voyage,
since thus it would not only honor the
memory of those brave voyagers bat
also testify to American appreciation of
the far-reaching results of that fateful
venture on the unknown ocean. The
suggestion Is so manifestly appropriate,
at this special time of diplomatic dif
ference with the motherland, that wa
trust to see it acted upon by congress
and by citizens unofficially.
In the present very . evident popu
larity of William McKlnley Speaker
Koul can find consolation by re
flecting that It will doubtless be his
turn four or eight years hence.
Several of the. sneakers at Allentown
went out of their way to deride Senator
Quay, which fact, coming from Demo
crats, Is naturally Interpreted as a

THE HYPNOTIZED REPORTER.
I have read with considerable Interest
the accounts of proceedings ujiainst a
woman on the West Side, who has been
endeavoring to earn ? living by telling
fortunes 'Tor lucre" by cards. The lie
counts of the keen detective work of Mr.
Lcyshnn, who went over to Hyde Park
and neatly trapped tho poor woman by
having his fortune told, have Interested
me very much. In fancy one can ace the
triumphant smile of the sleuth as he
put up a dollar and asked the womitu
to give its equivalent In information con
cerning the future. It requires skill to
carry out a Job of this kind that would
entitle one to the star character In a ro
mance of the Lakeside series. And then
the information is given out that the chlef-of-pollee
will promptly move upon the
fortune-tellers of the city und drive them
oil the earth if necessary.
This may be all right according to luw,
but, although I may bu alone in the opin
ion, I do not hesitate to say that it looks
like rather small business to occupy tho
time of officials in a community like Seron
ton, where there Is so much that needs
the attention of guardians of the peace,
it is my humble opinion that the time
of the chlef-of-pollce and county detective
can be more profitably employed In the In
terest of law and order than by chasing a
lot of impecunious women who seek to
make a livelihood by revealing the future
to those who have faith and fifty censt or a
dollartosettlefor the information. The law
fixes a. penalty for those who for "lucre
pretend to reveal the future." While It
may not be the case with the Hyde Park
woman, It Is certain that many of the fortune-tellers
actually believe in the predic
tions that they make by cards; the posi
tion of the heavenly bodies, or other meth
ods by which future events are foretold.
If they are sincere In their occupation,
why should they be persecuted by a law
that has been long considered a dead-letter
affair? If tho fortune-teller, with her
greasy pack of cards. Is a menace to law
and order, and the only element that
threatens the future wellfare of the
Electric City, let her be dragged from
haunts of corned beef and cabbage at once
and placed behind the bars for safe keep
ing. But It teems as though many other
crying evils that surround us should re
ceive attention before detective work and
obsolete laws are applied to the woman
who "cuts the cards" for the curious.
I am pleased to notice an Improvement
in the condition of streets in the central
part of the city. Asphalt pavement kept
clean by the flushing process, is a thing of
beauty and a joy forever, or at least until
It becomes necessary to evoke the services
of the repairing corps. For the absence
of dust let us be truly thankful and live
in hopes that no false economy or ex
perimental spirit will again place unof
fending citizens at the mercy of street
sweepers, who simply stirred up the loose
dirt and placed It In better condition to
be floated on every passing breeze,
The timid wheelman now hath his woes
In common with the rest of humanity. One
who has had a narrow escape from col
lision with a Scranton "scorcher" would
scarcely believe that anything could bar
rass the festive wheelman. But the bicy
cle rider has a common enemy in the Jehu.
Tho reckless driver who will sometimes
spare the pedestrian In a momentary
spasm of good nature, seldom misses an
opportunity to run a wheelman off the
road. Many complaints have been made
this spring of the Jehus who have delib
erately attempted to run down wheelmen,
and it is probable that serious trouble will
result before the summer Is over unless
the mania for colliding with bicycle rid
ers is checked.
A cowardly attempt was made the other
day near the Driving park by one of these
knights of the curry-comb, to run down
a lady bicyclist who was out for a pleas
ure ride with her husband. As the wo
man was quite a distance In advance of
her husband the stable boy evidently
thought she was without an escort und de
liberately attempted to run over her with
the road cart In which he was seuted. The
woman came very near falling down an
embankment In her efforts to keep out of
the way until her husband could com? to
the rescue. He very soon gave tho 'ostler
to understand In phrases emphatic, If not
elegant, that any Jehu who ran over h's
wife would not stand a very good chance
of living to become one hundred years old.
The stableman huntr his head and drnv
rapidly away, evidently convinced thut lie
had been assuming some risk In trying to
torment the bicycle riders.
In these days of fakirs and fake schemes
the newspaper man seems to come In tor
quite a shire of reproach that Is brought
on by ambitious individuals who pose ae
Journalists. During the centennial year
and the World's fair the fuko newspaper
racket was worked extensively by a class
of well-dressed trumpi. who, under pre
tence of representing Ihls paper or that,
sotipht to brat their way in u manner be
neath the standard of the most hungry
lroe-luncher in the nexvwiapor business.
