There Is 'one consolation about the
present position of the Scran ton hull
club. The team will not be likely to
be disturbed In It.
Needed Bicycle Legislation.
The ordinance governing the use of
Mcycles In the city of HulTalo reailH ns
follows: "No person shall ride any bi
cycle or tricycle In any street, lane or
alley of the city at a faster pace thun at
the rale of 10 niiles un hour, and by
means of u bell or whistle shall Rive
proper and sufficient wuniins upon ap
proaching a pedestrian upon a street
crossing or other portion of the road
way, so us to enable such pedestrian to
avoid a collision. And any such person
who shall full or neglect to ulvu such
warning and who shall by reason of
such neglect or failure, collide Willi any
pedestrian, shall forfeit and pay a
penalty of not less than live, nor more
than 25 dollars for each of every of
fense. And any person who shall wit
ness such collision shall foave the power
und authority to Immediately appre
hend and arrest the offender, without
warrant, and convey him to the nearest
Objection hits been raised to the llx
tng of a specified maximum speed limit
on the ground that it Is not feasible for
thewh-.liim!i to know win n he is riding
mure rapidly than, tay, 10 miles uu
hour. Neither can the authorities witli
certainty determine this point. There
fore In most cities, notably In Philadel
phia, the law hus been worded do us to
read that no person shall ride so fast an
to lose control of nil vehicle. We are
not sure that the present ordinance in
this city should not be amended so as
to make It Illegal for riders to lose con
trol of their machines. Such an amend
ment, followed by a vigorous enforce
ment against all violators, would soon
Bet the bicycle evil to rights.
. In buffalo there is another ordinance
which ought to be copied In Scrantou.
It provides that "no person shall place
or cause to be placed In or upon the
surface of any street, alley, highway or
road any glass, metal, stone, earthen
ware or other substance of a nature
likely to cause Injury to pedestrians,
animals, carriages, bicycles or other
vehicles." Every person violating this
ordinance Is subject to a line of not less
than $15.00 or more than $-.0.00.

Needed Here. '
Before Magistrate Jernion, of Phila
delphia, on Monday six reckless 1I
fycle riders received a proper rebuke.
The magistrate, In holding two of them
in $MW ball each for court, said: "Ry
tho act of April 2J.1SS9, riders of bi
cycles ore entitled to the same rights
und subject to the same restrictions in
the use thereof as ar prescribed by
law In the cases of persons using car-
luges drawn by horses. l!y ordinance
,f Sept. 23, 1SC4, It Is declared to be a
nuisance to ride or drive a. horse or
other animal attached to a vehicle
through the streets at a gallop or other
Immoderate gait. The. penally for vlo
Intlon of this ordinance is a fine of $:.
"By ordinance of Dec. 31, 1SD2, it Is
declared to be a nuisance to ride a bi
cycle without having control of the ma
chine. The penalty for violation of this
ordinance Is a fine of $10 and under
the testimony adduced each of these
ordinances has been violated, and tho
defendants could each be fined $15. It
Is, perhaps, fortunate for the defend
ants that no person was Injured or
property destroyed as a result of their
careless riding, or they would have
been subject to the act of March 31,
I860, against furious driving and rac
ing;, the penalty for which Is a fine
not exceeding $500 and imprisonment
not exceeding; five years.
"The public streets and highways of
a city are made and Intended for the
use of all citizens to go, walk, ride and
drive upon, at their will and pleasure.
They have a right to the free use of the
same, and to pass to and fro upon the
same without molestation or fear. They
have a right to police protection both
for their persons and property, and
should be able at all times to practice
all the said rights without danger to
their lives or limbs.' The rnunidpallty
must protect them In their -rights, and
eo that the streets and' highways are
not blocked or narrowed, and that there
Is not maintained 'upon them' any nut
ance of any kind. , Any person who
hall block or obstruct any of tlie pub

anything which will Interfere with
public travel Is committing a public
nulsuiice, and any person who shall un
lawfully, willfully or wantonly do any
act endangering the lives or limbs of
persons traveling upon the streets Is
committing a serious offense which Is
prejudicial to the public welfare, and
they should be so dealt with us to de
ter others from committing the same
oliense. In view of all the facts, und
the law, I will hold these defendants
each In the sum of $S00 bull, for the next
term of court, for committiut; a uui

The "Wilkes-Barre Uncord rises to re

Leisenring Steps Out. k
On account of Important personal in
terests that require his attention. Con
gressman Leisenring, over his own sig
nature, announces that he will not be a
candidate for rennmlnation. From a
strategic point of view this action is
undoubtedly wise. Assuming that Mr.
Leisenring expects to return to politics
after he shall have succeeded in putting
his business affairs into a suitable con
dition, lie can unquestionably save
himself much annoyance by having
some one else wrestle with the patron
age question In the next congress.
Patronage has killed more political
careers than any other single cause. It
Is especially dangerous In Luzerne
county, where almost every other voter
is a real or prospective office-seeker. It
laid out Osborne; it floored Lynch und
it annihilated Hines. Even before their
time, when the two counties were to
gether, it' helped to retire J. A. Scranton
every other term. Indeed, as the pre
cedents stand in the Twelfth district,
it would be a step toward suicid for
Mr. Leisenring, If he has ambitions
that look to the future, to accept a re
nomiiiution this year and bring down
about his ears the veritable hornet's
nest that would begin to buzz the mo
ment that It i ame time to apportion the

sonal preference, although he will pro

new county element to retain the con
gressman v it Ii in the bounds of friendly

Colonel Henry Hall. In a dispatch to
Chris Alugee's Pittsburg Times. Inti
mates thut the Leisenring guberna

This may be true, but Colonel Hall will
huve trouble In getting himself accept
ed as an authority on Quay's Inten
tions. About Those Bishops
In relation to the sentimental stir
which has been occasioned by Ilia retire
ment by the Cleveland Methodist gen
eral conference of Bishops Bowman
und Foster, Rev. Dr. Webster of
Rochester, N. Y., offers the following
explanation: "No doubt", says he. "this
ado lias risen from u thorough misun
derstanding of the cuse, which wus
facilitated by distorted reports and
blazing headlines In the daily press.
One paper cries out, 'Two Useless
lilshops. Kicked Out Amid Consider
able iO.xcitement. A lirutul Report,'
etc. What ure the l'ucts? Simply
these. Paragraph 277 of the liook of
Discipline suys: 'The general confer
ence rhall determine which of the bish
ops are nun-effective.' In the per
formance of this duty the couimitt-'e on
episcopacy found, upon careful inquiry,
thnt the two bishops referred to, on ac
count of uge and Infirmity, wire 'nimble
longer to endure the pr trncted s'r.il:i,
continuous responsibility, and almost
constant travel Imposed by the ojlicj of
bishop.' In a committee of 130 mi:rv
hers only live disagreed with the re
port. Another Important fact is that
precisely the same action was taken
In 1S72 with reference to Bishop
Thomas A. Morris, und In 1.SS0 with re
ference to Bishop Levi Scott, and in
Identically the same language.
"Of course, it is said that men should
grow old and It Is not surprising that a
wave of sentiment should go over the
church when two such eminent and be
loved servants as these ate retired. But
Judges are retired at fixed ages and
army officers. At every annual confer
ence men every way as worthy if not
as great as these, pass to the non
effective relation, not upon an assured
salary such as these bishops will re
ceive for they were specially com
mended to the book committee which
fixes the salaries of the bishops but
upon the pittance which is doled out
by the hand of reluctant charity."
As we said yesterday, we cannot dis
pute the propriety of retiring these ven
erable men. But there does seem to
be a lack of propriety In not permitting
the request for retirement to come from
them Instead of from the conference.
We might as well have the frankness to
admit that they were roughly shoved
aside; the secular press, in taking this
view of it took the only view which it
could take without distorting tha facts.

principle of the survival of the fittest

made for the accommodation of reporters.
The general Idea of those in charge of

reporter's chief mission is to be tilled lull
of fuud and Illinois and thut the tilling
i.f him is a necessary price of his and hl-i

NOT A FAKTY HKCKKK.
From the Kaston Free Press.
Senutor Quay was right in declining to
enter Into the combination to attack .Majji
McKinley on the ground that -he wus not
suund on the money question. This sort
of nttuck only hurts the party, as a whole,
without weakening .McKlnley's support.
It was iinjun to McKinley to assail him,
since his position as u candidate prevent
ed his replying, and It was unwarranted,
for the reason that .McKinley Is sound
and his speeches have proven him so.
Quay Is lighting for the nomination fair
ly and openly. And the .McKinley men
appreciate this fact.
