SCRANTON, MAY 1, 1898. Tfee Tribune la tho only Republican daily la Lackawanna County, REPUBLICAN STATE TICKET. Congressroon-at-Large, G-LISIIA A. GROW, of Susqiichunno, SAMUEL A. DAVENPORT, or lirlaV 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. Ineffectual Crooking. 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 remarks: 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 she would. 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 compliment. Wc consider that the Philadelphia Times takes a mean advantage of Rob ert E. Pattison's ubsence In the West to draw n parallel between him and Grover Cleveland. Mayor Bailey, having got safely upon the Harrity band wagon, need now have no further hesitancy in making those appointments. 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. There Is no question that the Journalistic! profession contains mai;y persons of ab normal appetite who ore better qualified to act ns scavani rs than to represent a h.),uihuih lii-niii;., uui ,,. eeiiia (fe in small when compared to the army of wuuei-ne reiuiiiertf, veniur.ue tramps, who annihilate the free lunch In tha guise of newspupor men. The !atet spectmen-of this class to sf. fliet Scranton is a very fresh young man who claims to represent the New York World. This pretty creature drease well and finds among young gliU In the ,.ty many converts who swudow his fairy stories and gaze with awe upon the real, live reporter who has promised to wrlt, them all up In the World, The World rep. rouentatlve gives the. girls a visiting card that looks as thoush It might have been printed on a three-dollar press. He has succeeded In making several promising conquests, It Is nld, on the strength of his journalistic d renins, und is liable to be. come a grer.tcr favorite than a matlnse Adonis, In his peculiar line. It may be poPBible that this Individual la the repre sentative of tho World It Is nald thai p.lmost anything goes on the World thec duys but I would advise the young vo. men who have been charmed by tho Vro porter" not to puj anything in advt! vrt for tho notices they sre to reeelvo in th World. I am Inclined to th'nk that thif journalist resides In Petersburg and that his mother takes In waahing to buy his fine clothes and calling cards. MAY'S MEMORIES. Written for The Tribune.
