ised that he 'shall not be dismissed ex

doubtless sutllcletitly elastic to cover a
multitude of sins, nnd therefore the
honorable plan for the mayor when he
wishes to make chanfies is to specify
whether the offense is offlcial or politi
Where the change Is confessedly
sought for political reasons, It Is mani
festly proper for the fact to be made
public. The policeman has a right to
this simple act of Justice. It Is due
both to him and to his family that he
he permitted to leave the municipal
service with an honorable discharge.
It is also due to the public that It may
know whether its employe has been re
miss or whether his offense be simply
that of having voted the wrong ticket
at the preceding municipal election.
While as a general proposition we be
lieve that the holders of municipal of
fices In subordinate position should be
retained during fitness and good be
havior, and favor the enactment of
laws which will Insure such a reforma
tion of the civil service, yet wo do
not wish to embarrass the present mu
nicipal administration by urging re
sistance to its policy of removals. All
that we do ask, and we think the ask
ing of it Is eminently fair, is that when
removals of Itepublicanft are made, it
be distinctly stateS for the public's in
formation whether those removals be
for politics or for cause.
Let us hope that the burglar epidemic
will not again become chronic In Scran
ton. Harrison Out for Good.
General Harrison, If honorably nom
inated at St. Louis and it Is quite un
necessary to add that he would not ac
cept a nomination which should come
to hiin In other than an honorable man
nerwould command the instant and
general coniidence of the country. We
believe that he would do this to an
extent greater than any other Republi
can nominee could, for the simple rea
son that he has been tested in the presi
dency and found not wanting In any
essential qualification. As a protec
tionist he Is the peer of any, but he is
more than that; he Is a patriot, level
headed and conservative statesman
who stands four-square to all the pub
lic currents of his time.
Perhaps even more than Major Mc
Klnley, he would us the prospective
president, impart to the troubled world
of business a sense of security and a
feeling that dangerous uncertainty
would terminate with his inauguration.
We say perhaps more than McKlnley,
' because while we believe that the Can
ton candidate is a thoroughly safe and
conservative man, there is not in his
uttitude toward doubt-creating is
sues that same fixed and dem-
onstrated knowledge which attach
es to General Harrison by reason of his
four years' tenure of the presidency.
For this reaon we confess that we have
been somewhat surprised that the pop
ular demand for a second Harrison ad
ministration was not more marked
throughout the country than it seemed
to have been prior to the publication
of the ex-president's letter withdrawing
his name from uso in this direction.
Accustomed as we have been to regard
Benjamin Harrison as plainly the
ablest man developed by the polities of
the past decade, and feeling sure that
his return to the white house would
be welcomed by every element In our
complex citizenship save possibly the
politicians whom he alienated while
president before, we had expected that
the "logic of events," if there be such a
thing in politics,, would point to him as
the natural Buccessor to Mr. Cleveland,
rather than to any Republican less fa
miliar with tho duties of the American
It Is possible, although not certain,
that If the letter of his withdrawal had
not been written, this expectation
would yet have been realized. How
ever, that letter was written, . and of
; course It war accepted by all fair
1 minded men as final so far as the ex
president could .Influence the issue.
The action of the Indiana Republicans
yesterday in instructing the delegates
. at-large from that state to support Mc
t Klnley settles conclusively -, whatever
-remnant of unfounded doubt there may
,'; have been a to the possibility of Indue-
' In Gonnrsl . TlarrlaAn tn ruwnnalriA
Had h objected to Instructions nooody
conversant with Indiana politkn can
question that instructions would have
been voted down. For the future,
General Harrison is clearly out of
the race, and equally certain
is McKinley's nomination. We can
only hote that President McKln
ley may be able to uersuade his dis
tinguished predecessor to give to the
next administration the benefit of his
experienced counsel by entering the
cabinet as secretary of state.
The grandfather's hat appears to
have given place in the world of po
litlcal fashions to the Napoleon boot
Holmes and the Death Penalty.
It matters comparatively little wheth
er H. II. Holmes was actually guilty of
tho specific charge for which he yes
terday paid the death penalty. Upon
that immediate point there is room for
at least he qualifying assertion that
tho evidence adduced during his trlul
was, in the opinion of many, insufficient
to eliminate doubt. The greater fact
is not in dispute that he win a human
pervert, predisposed to crime, and
therefore unlit to be left at larg". In
reach of opportunity fur furtheV nils
chief. The criminal acts which have
been definitely placed to his account
cover a range of vicious impulses suf
ficient to Justify society in resorting to
self-protection. It exercised Its man!
test privilege ill deciding to protect
itself by killing lis assailant.
Holmes' example naturally calls tip
the question whether present methods
of punishing crime are salutary and
sufficient, l'pon this question eminent
opinion. Is by no means unanimous.
Probably eight persons out of an aver
age ten regard cupital punishment as
fully warranted, both In expediency
and in morals. The fact that a small
minority holds ton different belief tendt
lather to confirm than to shake the
majority In its position. The fuither
fact that this minority ilk many cases
has slgiiulhtcd Its opisltlon to the
death penalty by making a sentimental
ado over notorious criminals has lent
additional unpopularity to the argu
ment that sacrificing life for life Is
none the less an elemental barbarity
for being covered by the sanction of
U Keonis to us that this question has
been too much debated from the stand
point of morals and too little from that
of expediency. In this democratic age
It will bo difficult to convince a con
siderable number of men that what the
majority sanctions Is Immoral. Vox
populi, vox del has never been so firmly
fixed in public opinion as It is today.
A more promising avenue of attack
upon tho death penalty. It seems to us,
lies In the direction of challenging its
efllcacy us a deterrent of crime. The
fact that, generally shaking, wherever
it has been superseded by prudent re
formative methods clime has Instantly
decreased constitutes an argument of
greater attractiveness than to raise the
sentimental plea that capital punish
ment Is intrinsically barbarous ,
Another contemporary objection to
the experimental abolition of the death
penalty which is not without substan
tial Justice is that while the minority
opposition is quite unanimous in wish
ing to do away with that penalty, it Is
by no means agreed as to the wisest
substitute. That our present punitive
system, front the alderman's court to
the murder tribunal, Is a mass of anom
alies and defects does not remove tho
additional circumstance that It Is pref
erable to no system at all. Until those
who favor the Isolation and education
In preference to the hanging, electro
cuting or shooting of homicidal crim
inals can offer a clearly defined out
line of the reforms which they would
engraft upon tho state, it will be like
whistling against the wind to cry out
against legal assassinations.
Senator Klklns has been converted to
the McKlnley movement. Says he:
"There was never anything like it.
There was never such popular enthusi
asm for a candidate for oilice since the
world began. Neither George Washing
ton, nor Andrew Jackson, nor Henry
Clav. nor Abraham Lincoln, nor Gen
eral Grant, nor James O. Blaine ever
received so universal and such hearty
support from the American people as
Major McKinley Is receiving now. I
have opposed hjs nomination, but I give
it up, and I tell the other folks there Is
no use trying to Interfere with fate. It
Is mitten down that McKlnley Is to bo
the next president, and we are only
making unnecessary trouble for our
selves as well as for him by resisting
the inevitable." The chances are that
the inevitable will not be seriously re
sisted much longer.
Says the Cleveland World: "The
theory that McKinley's managers are
responsible for the onrush of the party's
enthusiasm and for Its expression in
two-thirds of the party conventions In
the United States, Is very much like
saying that the captain of a sailing
vessel creates the winds nnd currents
which are sending him ahead of bis
competitors." Still, Hanna and Kohl
saat have proved themselves tip-top
There tire $350,000,000 outstanding
treasury notes and greenbacks.' Car
lisle and Cleveland want these retired.
Why? llecause It gives them an Issue
with which to divert public attention
from their party's demonstrated Inca
pacity. We regret to see so good a
Republican paper as the Philadelphia
Press tumbling headlong Into this trap.
If we are to continue the gold stand
ard we must have a larger gold reserve,
and It must bo a reserve in fact as
well as In name. None of this security
fund must under Republican adminis
tration be spent In patching out a tariff
It Is rumored from Washington that
David H. Hill would like to try his
speed in the presidential race. Hill, we
fear, would find it very up-grade work.
If Mr, Cleveland wants to simplify
the selection of Democracy's; next vic
tim he should speak out. His contin
ued silence Is decidedly embarrassing.
Brother Godkin will never forgive
Major McKlnley for his failure to nibble
at the Evening Post's radical gold bug
We confess to a sense of relief now
that there seems to be a chance of soon
seeing- less about H. H. Holmes In the
papers , i
The Forum tor May devotes four of Its
eleven articles to political topica turn
promise to enter Into the approaching 'ia
tion campaign, iuxl intends to continue
his throughout the summer. K. L. Uol
kin review "The Political Situation,''
finding little encouragement for hopefnl
thinking; William Boioman urges the po
litical parties to join hands In an effort to
retire the greenbacks and treasury notes
and replace them with nutional bank
notes; and Senator Henry C'uhot Loli--e
ami Professor John iia&aett Moore dis
cuss the Cuban question, the one favor
ing prompt recognition, the other oppos
ing It. Senator Lodge's presentation of
our duty to Cuba is the best and clearest
we have yet seen. He shows that in the
early part of tho century John Qulncy
Adams, as secretary of state, declared :ti
nexation to be Cuba's manifest destiny.
In which view he was later re-in forced by
Henry Clay and antne of the leadline states
men of the republic's youth. Aft r show

exists in Cuba, save only the possesMoa

tion hy us la lint that Cuba's quarrel is
not just, but that we should, by Interfer
ing, subject our motives to misconstruc

territorial greed. Hotldts, he argues th it

The opening article In this month's issuj
of liunton's mugaainc is i paper by the
editor in which ha explains why economic
sentiment in Knaland has hemi to fuvoi n
return to the policy of protection. Ills chief
reason is that when free trade was adopted
KtiKland had machinery so superior to
that In tine In continental countries tiiu.1
she could undersell those countries In their
own markets. Latterly, however, conti
nental machinery has bet'ii Improving to
such an extent that wages nre becoming
the only factor of tlilterence ill cost.
'Ilicretoie. unless continental waijes rise
to the level of Kimllsh waxes I'rofessar
Gunton argues that Kngland will he un
able to compete with continental countiies
and will be compelled to resort to protec
tion or lose her foreign und much of her
domestic trade. He concludes that the
consequence of this Inevitable reversion to
protection by Kngland will be the exclu
sion from llrltlsh markets of much of
America's exported foodstuffs, and warns
American fnrmers to cultivate the home
market rather than to expect great future
Biiccess In the foreign field. Another ar.
tide of Interest Is that in which the Oil
man plan for the establishment of a
"clearing house currency" Is dissected and
shown to Involve a proposition for ono of
the worst kinds of flat money. Every one
of the ten papers in this magazine Is tlmo
Iv, meaty and instructive. Two editorial
features are iilso the best of their kind In
print that one which summarizes ...e
"Leading Events of the Month," und that
one which epitomizes the papers in tho
various contemporary magazines which
treat of economics. No peraon who wishes
to keep well informed upon the live politi
cal and economic questions of the day can
afford to miss reading this periodical each
month. New York: Political 8clence Pub.
Co., Union Square.
Of the seven leading papers In the Meta.
physical magazine for May that one which
most readily attracts our attention is en
titled "Genius: Inspiration or Acquisi
tion?" by Lida Lewis Watson. It tukes
the obviously correct position that whil-J
tnlent may be cultivated and tact acquired
genius, on the other hartd. Is Inborn "a
secret hidden within the mystery of tho
great Whence and Whither of the Immor
tal spirit, which rests with Omniscience."
Another very Interesting communication
In this magazine Is contributed by Hamil
ton (Jay Howard, of the Detroit bur, un
der the title "Psychic Law of Attraction
und Repulsion." Jn it he narrates this ex
perience): "One evening I was In the midst
of a small company assembled lit tho
drawing rooms or t no oiu nomestean. n;
the center of the front room was placed
a small, oblong, four-legged, wooden ta
ble; standing around it, with tho tips or
their fingers resting upon Its top, were
half a dozen ladles and gentlemen, while
the piece of furniture itself kept rising and
falling, first one end and then the other.
Refore the table began to move one of tho
ladles said that nothing could bo done
with it while a certain gentleman re
mained In the room William J. Speed,
who lost his lifo at Gettysburg during the
civil war. Captain Speed was then u stu
dent In mv father's law office, a nervous.
piercing dark blue eyes and abundant black
spare, uaiK-compiexionca man, wirti
curly hair. Ho left the rcom, and the ta
ble nt once began to" teeter. The apart
ment was fully lighted. In my boyish eti
thusiustn I expressed a desire to be placed
on top of the table, whereupon I was at led
nnd seated on It, my legs hanalng over one
side and my hands grasping either end. As
the table was ubout to rise I would lean
toward the elevated end and try to bear
it down by my weight; but, to my great de
light and the wonder of the guests. It con
tinued to rock. At lust an army ollleer
who was present the late Captain Scani
mon attached to the table a good-slzjd
wire, one end of Which he had surreptl-
Itously passed out through the window an 1
stuck in the ground. As soon as the table
touched with this wire it censed to move.
I remember the look of triumph that
wreathed the face of this gentleman as ho
declared that It was simply 'animal mag
netism' that caused the movemenls. After
this experiment I was removed from til-'
table, us was also the wire from tin; room.
and those resting their llnger-tlps upon the
table were soon following it slowly about
the apartment. Healing one leg on the
edge of a sofa. It balanced Itself In air
for a short time, when It resumed Its pro
gress around the room. It would" occa
sionally stop, however, when the i.uy in
charge would remark: 'Mr. Speed has
opened the door,' or, 'He Is looking in the
room: jir.d on his witnurawul the tnoie
would again begin to move. It finally
reached the front hall, stopping Its cuttrsc
only when it became Impossible to mount
the stairs with the people surrounding It."
