Godspeed to the Booths.
There can be no mistaking the sin
cerity of the welcome yesterday accord
ed by the leadei-3 in Scranton's religious
life to Commander and Mrs. Balllngton
Booth. Much of this welcome was no
doubt personal and came as a tribute to
their magnificent unselfishness and
demonstrated devotion to the cause of
practical philanthropy and vital Chris
tianity. The favorable Impression left
by them upon their former visit to our
city has been broadened and deepened
until now they may feel assured of the
steadfast esteem and earnest co-operation
of the effective element in our citi
zenship. But back of this personal regard and
even superior to itia a guarantee of the
future success of the American Volun
teer movement In this community is the
fact that these distinguished visitors
have planted themselves on impregna
ble ground. They stand conspicuously
for principles O.ear to true American
ism; they st".nd for God and country
this country: America! They are not
only among us but they are of us. They
work not simply for better manhood but
also for nobler citizenship; for the de
velopment of cleaner and purer civic in
fluences; for the uplifting of the flag
Let those who wish cavil at the senti
ment of robust patriotism; it is 'he
sentiment which is needed above all oth
er sentiments today the sentiment
which we cannot with safety spare.
To the work of the Booths, therefore,
vre bid Godspeed! Of its eventual
growth and splendid ultimate triumph
we can entertain no doubts.
By the election of Judge Alfred Darte,
of Wllkes-Barre, as department com
mander, the Pennsylvania encampment
of the Grand Army of the Republic has
conferred deserved honor upon a brave
soldier and a distinguished and worthy
civilian. The choice Is admirable in ev
ery possible aspect.
Don't Worry About the Press.
It Is well that there are from time to
time men with sufficient discernment
to point out the Intrinsic weaknesses of
a government by majorities. From
such men's guidance wc get our true
beai'Iugs and are enabled to make safer
and surer progress. The article by "Pro
fessor Blackmar In the June Forum is
a criticism In point. He analyzes the
democratic system not unkindly, but In
the mil in Justly. He shows Its dangers
and properly assumes that Its benefits
stand In no xpeclul need of review since
they ure apparent to all men.
We shall not at this time, however,
give attention to more than one point In
his argument. The professor is an ad
mirer of the press as a potent force in
democratic government, lie calls lt a
"masterly service" and pronouncoB Its
freedom an "inestimable privilege."
But he Imagines that when the tatter
was made one of the foundation stones
of this republic many abuses that have
since arisen In connection with the free
dom of the press were not then under
stood. "It could not be foreseen," says
lie, "that a time would come when a
partisan press: would seek to mislead the
people. It cculd not be foreseen that a
time would come when whole columns
of 'fake news would be published; that
whole columns of sensational 'stuff'
would be printed and read. It could not
be foreseen that the family paper would
contain r little of everything, like the
refuse-box In a type-room. Jt could not
be realized that a time would come
when this man would be written 'up'
and this one 'down' for personal gain.
One did not realize that measures would
be advocated on a purely 'commercial'
Is that so? Where, then, were the
eyes of the republic's founders?. Long
before their day the press was doing
just these tnings, with the possible ex
ception of "containing a little of every
thing." The newspapers of the last
century, In the colonies and In England,
were not strong on variety, but' they
certainly did "seek to mislead the peo-

basis. There Is not a partisan of gad of
today, not one, which would admit to
Its columns at any time material one
half so libelous and scurrilous as that
which flooded the political Journals
seventy-five and one hundred-ears ago.
True, as Professor Blackmar says,
"people are losing their reverence for
print A printed lie has not more effect
now than an oral one." But let a reput
able newspaper of today print the truth
about a derelict public official, a shady
commercial enterprise or a political
"Job," and see how quickly the galled
Jade will wince. At no time since his
tory began has the press been so power
ful an Influence upon public thought as
It Is now. The people expect the press
to be honest, and upon the whole it is.
The exceptions are rendered possible by
the patronage of the very public which

Journalism and then tumble over Itself
In a mad rush for the latest edition of
the lulest scandal.
If the president is holding Cuban
recognition back as a last campaign
card, he will need to play It soon or the
silver . Democrats will have a two
thirds majority of the tricks.
Some time ago a committee of the
senate was appointed to examine the
const defenses of the country and report
upon their condition. Senator Squire,
the chairman, has given to the press an
advance summary of the committee's
Tindlng. "Wb'.t we need properly to
defend New York with," says he, "Is
93 hlsh-pow ei, long-range guns' of 8, 10
and VI Inches'. In addition to these we
need 176 twelve-Inch steel rifle mortars
and twenty-five rapid fire guns. If the
whole of the manufacturing facilities In
tho country were put to work now It
would take at least seven months to
make the forgings for one gun, and then
it would require from six months to
one year to complete the defenses that
are absolutely necessary.
"At Sandy Hook we found but two
twelve-Inch guns ready to be fired, and
these had no range finders and were
lacking the details necessary to do good,
effective work. There are no men kept
there, and If troops should be sent there
they would not know what to do with
these guns. As an Instance, the men
who were there could not get up steam
to show the committee the rise and
fall of these two guns. At Fort WaJs
worth we found five eight-Inch guns,
none .ready for use, and they will not
be until some time In August. They are
all the direct fire guns in the lower
bay. There are sixteen guns and a
mortar battery at the Hook, but to get
all the mortars and these guns In shape,
If work were begun right away, at least
a year would be required. The system
of using torpedoes Is almost useless un
less the torpedoes are protected by gurrn
and flashlights, which are lacking."
In other words, at the best calcula
tion, If war were suddenly to break out
between this country and a strong na
val power, It would be a full year after
the beginning of hostilities before we
should be ready to make any kind of
a defense of our chief port city whose
destruction by the mortars of a foreign
fleet would, In a few hours, devolve upon
us a loss greater than was sustained
on both sides during four years of ter
rible civil war. This may be an eco
nomical condition of affairs and It may
not. But If the city or New York were
to guard itself against damage by fire
on the same easy plan that the United
States gu.nrds It against damage by in
vasion, there would soon be an upris
ing In favor of a better fire department.
The Pittsburg Times, In a recent re
view of the normal schools of the state,
pays high tribute to the one at East
Stroudsburg, the "marvelous1 growth
and unparalleled success of which," it
says, "have called forth the most favor
able comment from people in all parts
of Pennsylvania." It also compliments
Principal George P. Bible, who, nl
though the youngest executive in charge
of such an institution, has shown that
he possesses qualifications second to
none. These words of recognition have
been fully won by hard and faithful
work, and Tho Tribune gladly makes
note of them.
The Czar of the White House.
A peculiar story Is related to illus
trate the desperation with which Presi
dent Cleveland has endeavored to fight
back the free sliver sentiment In the
Democratic party. In a letter to Sen'
ntor Vest, written by George P. Hum'
mer, a leading silver Democrat of Mich'
Igan, and capable, It Is said, of sub
stantlatlon by affidavit, the statement
Is made that on the night when the
Michigan Democratic convention declar
ed for gold and bound the delegation to
that standard by use of the unit rule,
Elliott G. Stevenson, a law partner of
Don M. Tiicklnson, while boasting of
the way Ii- hlch the silver men. had
been defeated, tol Hummer of the part
which President Cleveland had had In
the affair, Mr. Stevenson said that
Mr. Cleveland telegraphed him to come
to Washington, and when ho arrived
there told him that the state must de
clare against silver and Indorse the ad
ministration. Mr. Stevenson said that
he replied that the state was very
largely for Bllverj that even Kent
county, out of which Mr. Uhl had been
appointed ambassador to Germany, had
gone for silver; that there was no way
In which to prevent the election of a
large majority of free sliver delegates,
but that if the president Insisted he
thought that "the state could be stolen
for the administration." The president
did Insist, Mr. Stevenson went on to say,
and gave him carte blanche to use the
postmasters and federal officials as he
might choose. He returned to Mlchi
gan, and, summoning all the federal of
flclals, had many of them agree to run
as sliver candidates tor the state con
ventlon with the understanding that
they should vote against silver when
they were eleoted According to Mr,
Hummer this programme was carried
out, and with the result everybody la
This narrative, which Is taken In Its
present form from the Washington
Post, a journal by no means unfriendly
to the administration, has Its counter
tort In one which Is current among the
newspapers cf Ohio, to the effect that a

convention as would lead the reader to

purpose of winning silver delegates.
over to gold. That wherever the ad
ministration can use patronage cr
promises to tight silver It Is doing so
without limit or scruple, precisely as It
did during its fight for the repeal of
the Pherman silver-purchase act. Is es
tablished beyond doubt. In fait, the
whole political strength of the white-
house has been manipulated without
cessation for more than two years past
with steady view to tho carrying of tho
Democratic national convention this
year for gold.
l.'nder these circumstances, and with
out regard to the merit or demerits of
the silver movement itself, we suspect
that every decent man will be rejoiced
to see the Democratic party rising In Its
dignity and preparing to rebuke this
impudent attempt on the part of Presi
dent Cleveland to bend everything to
his proud will. The question of silver
against gold. Important as It may ul
timately become before this so-called
financial flurry Fhnll have ended, Is at
this tlm decidedly Inferior In signifi
cance to the other question whether the
presidential office shall remain a branch
of the government co-ordinate and co
operative with the other two branches
as ordained by the constitution, or be
exalted through unrebuked usurpation
into a seat of virtual absolutism.

Lew Bernard is now the Democratic boss

years. When Mr. Brown, of that city,
was appointed postmaster he wanted to
make Bernard his deputy. He made the
appointment, ns far us he could, but
when the matter reached tho postolllco
department It was held up by order of
President Cleveland. It Is said this was
the first case on record where a president
had Interfered In the appointment of a
deputy postmaster. The matter drifted
along for some time, until Senator Brlce,
accompanied by all the Democratic con
gressmen from Ohio, went to the whltu
house and urged the president to permit
the appointment of Mr. Bernard to be per
fected. Attorney General Harmon, who
had been associated In politics with Ber
nard, also begged Mr. Cleveland to do
this, and his appeal wks seconded by Sec
retary Carlisle, who nlso knew Bernard,
and by Postmaster General Wilson. But
