No Pardon for Birdsley.
Th report Is that Governor Hastings
Is disinclined to favor the extension of
clemency to J.iltn Bardsley. If thtit be
his attitude. It has much to sustain it.
Conceding that Bardsley was to some
extent the victim of vicious precedents,
the fact nevertheless remains that his
offense was a serious crime apainst the
commonwealth, and one which for
wholesome exemplary purposes calls
for thorough punishment. Personally
we feel sorry for Bardsley. But can
rersonal sympathy safely be permitted
to outweigh grave considerations of pub
lic justice? Is the fact that Bardsley,
In his individual aspect, was and Is a
jrood fellow sufficient to warrant the
condonation of his large embezzlement
of public funds?
At a time when the processes ot jus
tice In cases Involving the possibility of
political Inlluence are under nir.re or
less suspicion, would it be wise to haz
ard tho charg of discrimination In a
cstsc so widely watched ns Is this case
f BarJalry? Should the tusra fact that
many eminent persons, once friends of
BatcUIcy, have augmented that he now
ha accorded freedom upon the plea that
b harj already suffered greatly be ac
cepted 63 of more vital consequence
ta.ia V.'.i fact that such a pardon would
caure a widespread weakening of faith
in tho impartiality of our Judicial sys
tem In the case of Influential offenders?
Wc think not.
rinally. It deserves to be added that
the board of pardons has In recent years
shewn altogether too much leniency to
regularly and fairly convicted crimi
nals. The theoretical purpose of the
board 13 to correct mistakes and to af
ford an opportunity for the due consid
eration of belated mitigating evidence.
It was never the Intention of the fram
rs of the present constitution that the
board should resolve Itself Into a soft
mark for ambitious attorneys and emol
lient sympathizers with crime. The
board stands already under serious pub
lie disapproval. If a popular vote could
be taken on Its abolition, the proposition
to abolish It would, In our Judgment,
carry by a large majority. The addition
to Its numerous acta of mistaken clem
ency of such a recommendation as Is be
sought In the Interest of John Bardsley
would drive a big hole through what
little grasp It yet has on public favor.
The Wilkes-Banre News-Dealer takes
the Tribune's estimate of the next elec
toral vote and by appropriating the
doubtful states and three or four of the
sure McKInley states, figures out a
Bryan victory. There Is no law against
this kind of thing. One man's guess is
as legal as another's. At the same time
we will wager a slice of watermelon
against a glass of red lemonade that
th editor of the New-Dealer la hlg
own heart, doesn't expect Bryan to
come within forty miles of an election.
Taylor's directory for 1S9G. which has
Just been Issued, gives the population
of Scranton at 106,003. This showing Is
a trifle smaller than we c-xuected: but
It nevertheless contrasts favorably with
the 73.213 population accorded to us by
the Eleventh census. The probability
Is that Scranton will open the next cen
tury with close to 130,000 inhabitants.
The coming four years of McKInley
prosperity will be likely to work won
ders In tills city.
"The money or the I'nited States,
und every kind or form of it, whether
of payer, silver or gold, must be as
good as the best in the world. It must
uot only be current at it lull lace
value ut home, but it must be rotinted
nt par in any and every commercial
center of the globe. The dollar paid
to the farmer, the wagc-cmucr und
the pensioner must continue forever
equul in purchasing uud debt-paying
power to the tlollur paid to auy gov
eminent crrtlitor."".lcKiiilcy iu His
Speech of Aeccptunee.
We Judge from Its editorial utter
ances thut the Scranton Times ls un
equivocally fur free trade. Is that so?
A Significant Straw.
One of the few really Important
"straws" tending to sliuw the direction
of the iKiiitkul wind Is supplied by the
New Yoik Journal, a paper which sup
ports Bryan. It recently took a poll of
a few more than 10.000 voters In New
York city dlstilbuteJ through all the
ordinary vocations. U found that of
the 5.1'tij Republican) who expressed
their Intention, CSJ said they would
vote for Bryan, while of the 4.437 Demo
crat:? Interviewed, 9:!8 declared they
would oK- for McKInley.
As tin: Washington ftar points out.
these figures show that a fraction of
over "U per cent, of the Democrats in
terviewed will vote for the Utpubllcan
nominee, while a fraction less than 10
per cent, of the Kepubllcuns Interviewed
will vote for the Demociatlo-Popullstic
candidate. Apply these proportions
tj the latest vote of New Y'cuk on the
presidency. In 1W2 Harrison received
609.SjO votes In Use state of New Y'oik
and Cleveland C.M.bGS Votes. Taking
from Harrison's vote 10 per cent of it
nnd adding to it 20 per cent of the
Cleveland vote pluci-s the Republican
strength on the basis at 67.:JSS, and ap
plying tho same process to the other
side the Democratic strength becomes
CS4.S30, giving an apparent plurality In
the state for the Republicans of 94,558.
Of course, the city conditions predomi
nated in this tally, and It may be that
later efforts up-country will producedlf
ferent proportions. As some of the vo
ters thus canvassed came from New
Jersey, it Is fair to take a count of the
Vote of that state In the same manner,
and the result Is an uppureiit plu
rality for McKInley of 22,230.
These llgures coming from a source
friendly to the Democratic nominee,
make be taken as at leust fair to Bryan.
But the conditions of the campaign In
New Y'ork and New Jersey are such
that while a goodly percentage of tho
disaffected Republicans will during the
progress of the canvass be won back
Into line, the number of bolting Demo
crats will bo likely to grow. It la evi
dent from the speech of the leading ad
ministration officials at Washington
that the whole force of the Cleveland
following In Democracy will from this
time onward bo massed as far as pos
sible In favor of McKInley. As the
'campaign progresses the large commer
cial and financial Interests which have
their headquarters In New York will
become aroused to redoubled efforts In
behalf of the nominee of sound money.
Consequently, Instead of a majority of
100.000 In New York state and one of
23,000 In New Jersey, McKInley will be
more likely to have 300,000 In New York
and 73,000 In New Jersey.
The battle, in any event, will be
fought in the middle west and south;
In such states us Delaware, Marylund,
Virginia, Wert Virginia, Kentucky, In
diana, Michigan, Illinois, Kansas,
Missouri, Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa,
and the Dakotas. And until the war
once fairly opens In those states, pra
dlctions will have little serious value.
A very convenient and useful HttW
document has just been issued by the
Colliery Engineer company of this city.
It contains the unabridged text of the
laws governing uuthraclte mining In
this state, and copies of It may be had
for the asking. A better knowledge of
the mine laws will do the community
A Hastcrly Book.
We commend to every reader ot The
Tribune a book for which a canvass of
the city and surrounding territory Is
now being made. We refer to the vol
ume entitled "Protection and Prosper
ity," prepared by Hon. Oeorge B. Cur
tlss, of Blnghumton, N. Y'., and pub
lished by the Pan-American Publishing
company, 111 Fifth avenue. New York.
There Is widespread concurrence of
eminent testimony to the effect that
this is the ablest, the most exhaustive
and the most accurate treatise bearing
on the relation of tariffs to business suc
cess yet published. The volume coin
prises nearly 900 large octavo pages,
and every page contains historical and
statistical Information of well-nigh In
dispensable value to students of eco
nomic questions nnd to citizens who de
sire to be Informed upon this recurring
Issue In American politics. The book,
however, Is not a campaign document
In Intention, although It Is an Incom
parable one In effect. Jt Is a philosophic
treatment of the tariff question In all
Industrial nations, with each historic
tntement relnforcel by proof drawo
from unquestionable oftlclal sources.
An William McKInley says In his Intro
duction to the volumeand beside his
testimony there Is also written Indorse
ment from Governor Morton and
I recall no work that even attempts to
cover the Held marked out by Mr. Curiiss.
He has undoubtedly curried the statistical
Information farther than any other writer,
and embodied In It a aeries of tables taken
from odlelal sources which will be of per
manent value. It Is ene of the stronceat
presentations of the views of those'nho
believe that the question of finding em
ployment for the people in diversified In
dustries, of elevating citizenship and Im
proving home life, lies at the base of the
eclence of economics. It should Le In -.!ie
hamU of every Intelligent voter who Is
called upon to decide between free trals
and protection, or who desires to base his
decision on the balance sheet of nations.
To attempt in detail a review of this
exhaustive work would take us far be
yond the limits of this article. Although
It is a volume of convenient reference,
with ample Indexes to facilitate the
finding of special information for special
purposes, and on that account exceed
ingly useful to writers or speakers on
the tariff question, It is really worthy
to be read and studied as a systematic
and harmonious exposition of the phil
osophy of protection. It is not often
thut we receive u book deserving of un
qualified and enthusiastic Indorsement;
but this is such a, book, and we are en
tirely willing to stand sponsor for Its
introduction to Scruntonlana.
The Salt Lake Tribune urges Utah
Republicans to support Bryan but to tie
Ills hands if elected by means of a Pro
tection congress. Tt fails, however, to
explain how tho handful of bolting Re
publican silvcrites are to do this as
against the overwhelming Democratic
and I'cpulistlo demand for free trade.
The clear fact is that the election of
Bryan would mean both free silver and
free trade. No Protectionist can work
for one without inviting the other.
Even Ctpta!n Adrian Anson, the pri
mate of base ball, bolts the nomination
of Bryan and declares for McKInley.
"Free silver," he say, "is like trying to
smash the cover off the ball when the
bases ere full and orily one man Is out.
It's all right If you find the sphere, but
the chances are sixteen to one in favor
of a double play which will prevent a
score and retire the side. It isn't base
ball to take such risks."
Y'oung Sewall has come out against
his father, and so has Ignatius Don
nelly. But their reasons are different.
Donnelly's complaint is that Sewall,
pere. Is a millionaire. The son's griev
ance is that the father is a Democrat.
The son, so far as we can learn, is en
tirely reconciled tu the old gentleman's
One year ago the New Y'ork Times
predicted that the free silverites would
name one-third of the delegates to the
St. Louis convention and about two
fifths of the delegates to the Chicago
convention. They got one-eighth of the
one and two-thirds of the other.
If the speeches which Mr. Bryan has
made since bis nomination, are fair
samples of what may be expected from
him during the ensuing campaign, his
eandidaoy will shrink so that by No
vember it will take a microscope to see
The free silver experiment, even If
begun, would speedily fall. But It would
take this country many sad years to
recover from the dlsonangement which
the launching of that ej;perlment would
effect. Sensible citizenship will not
take eo needless a risk.
As he recalls how during tho past six
years these same bolting Democrats
unrelentingly reviled and lampooned
him, Sir. McKInley must realize the
wonderful Justice of time.
The Philadelphia Times nominates
for bolting standard-bearers Hill and
Watterson. Why not make It Cleve
land and McClurc?
The trouble is that tho party which
traflicks In the mob spirit cruates peril
which It cannot control.
Mr. Bryan's greatest danger is his
JUST WHAT IT MEANS.
Among many persons there Is yet a lack
of cli-ar understanding us to the precise
meaning ot the free silver movement In
Its various details. To all such we rec
ommend a reading of the following edlto
rial from the Philadelphia Record, a Dem
ocratic paper which refuses to accept tho
Chicago platform. Free silver colnuge, it
says, means: (1) That the silver dollar,
containing i71U grulns of lino metal, shall
be equal to the gold dollar, containing 2.1.:!
grains of gold, anil shall be un unlimited
legal tender for aa debts, public and pri
vate. (2) That any one possessing silver
bullion. oM silver plate or spoons, or any
thing containing silver, would have the
right to take these articles to the United
Slates mints und have them coined Into
silver dollars, instead of being pj to 1,
the actual ratio Is nenrer ftl to 1 between
the silver and the gold dollar. That is to
say, the nn tal in the silver dollur, so far
from being worth one hundred cents in
gold. Is worth about lirty-three cents In
gold. The holder or u silver dollar can
obtain a gold dollar for It because the
government is still ubie, by an expensive
process of borrowing, to maintain the re
lation of 1C to 1 between silver and gold.
But after free and unlimited coinage the
sliver dollar would be worth no more than
the metal that Is In it, since the govern
ment would no longer have Uie power to
maintain the existing relation of Hi to 1 be
tween the two coinages.
A correspondent asks what would be tho
effect or free coinage upon the savings
banks and their depositors. The effect
would be the same with the deposits In
savings banks as with all other money.
The capacity of the bauks to pay their de
positors would not be affected; but no
sooner should a congress and a president
be elected to enact a free sliver law thun
payments In gold would ceuse. Every
man having gold would hold It for pre
mium, and would pay sliver dollars, or
notes redeemable wlih silver and having
the snmo worth. The sliver dollar, In
stead of being worth one hundred cents In
nold, would be worth no more than the
bullion that ia la it. Commodities that
are now bought for a dollar would cost
nearly two dollars. The holders of a cer
tificate of deposit for $100 In a savings
bank would be able to purchase with It no
more than he can now buy for 03. It Is
shown by the official returns that there
kira ,S"3.(jli) depositors In the savings
banks or ifie United Staes, l aving depos
its to the amount of $1,810,5117,000. our
correspondent can. estimate for himself
the extent ot the confiscation and dla-
tress on this account alone that would fol
low the free rofnage of silver.
t .11 !' il
Another correspondent learns that many
farnrrrs who favor fre coinage expect to
sell their products abroad for gold, nnd
then obtain for every gold dollar two fifty
cent sliver dollars with which to pay
their debts. No Intelligent farmer can
make any such calculation. Under free
coinage American farmers would receive,
the same as now, for their staple products,
whether shipped abroad or consumed at
heme, the price paid in foreign markets
measured by gold. There is no artirlce of
government or magic by which this gold
could be Increased in value by converting
It Into cheap silver dollars. But under
free coinage ns demanded by t.le Chlcugo
platform the foreign as well as the Amer
ican owners of silver, whether in bullion
or in plat or ol 1 spoons, would have an
Immense advantage over the non-owners
in that they could take the depreciated
metal to the United States mints and have
(t converted Into standard dollars at
double its real worth. But: there ure
some advocates of free coinage who Insist
thut it would raise the value of silver to
the relation of Pj to 1 with gold. That is
as much as to suy that the price of woolen
cloths, of cotton prints would rise with the
Increase or the facilities for then- pro
duction. There are many silverites, how.
ever, whose interest in this question would
entirely cease If they believed that free
colnuge would have the effect of raising
the market vulue of silver to the ratio of
1(! to 1 with gold. What they want 1 de
predated currency; and they never gave
themselves any concern for free eolnege
until silver hud heavily depreciated In the
!l I! !l
SI ill another reader calls attention to
the oft-repcutcd complaints that there Is
not enough money In the lanj to pay the
farmers decent prices for their products,
uud thut this scarcity of money Is due to
the guld standard, tor the equitable niul.n-
1 tenHiice of which the mines of the world
cannot produce sufficient sold. This nr.
gument of the silverites deserves, uud will
receive, more consideration thun can be
given to It In these brief replies. But it
has been shown over and over again that
there Is more money In the country per
head than there was when wheat was
treble Us present price, and that there is
no other land III the world except France
In which the currency per head of popu.
lation Is as abundant as it Is in the United
States. It has also been shown that the
difference ii the quantity or currency per
head In two countries or like industrial
conditions causes ni difference In the
prices of commodities. If the quantity of
money determined rates of wages and the
prices or farm products and other com
modities the level would be made higher
In France, with Its greater ubundance of
currency, than In Great Britain; but the
reverse 1 the actual case.
I! II II
As to the sllverl te pretension that tho
Increased production of gold is hardly suf
ficient to meet the Increased need of It for
plugging teeth the offlclul statistics dem
onstrate that the annual gold production
of the world is greater now than In any
former purled, having risen from $lW,l(i3,
DoO In 1S8U to lSi,ti20.0o0 In 1S14. At the same
time Dr. Soetheer, the highest author
ity (and an advocate of modified Interna
tional bimetallism), has shown that the
yearly use or gold In tho ails and many,
factu'res dots not exceed $3.OWi.(H0, or
about one-third of the yearly pru'dnction.
Tho fact Is that under Bound systems of
finance and exchange the existing store
of gold and the yearly accumulations uro
more than FUtflcient for the transaction
of the world's business. As we write au
thentle news comes of tho discovery of
rich mines of gold In the Orange Fre
state. The cry of the great scarcity of
c-old, and of the groat decline of prices In
consequences of it, like the rest of the
Populist assertions, is totully wuntlng in
tho essential element of truth.

Mr. Bryan has already said that he do?s
not deslro a second term. His youthful,
ness would leave the country with a se
rious problem on Its hands In the event of
his election. In thil republic the .presi
dency is regarded as the crowning achieve,
ment or a career. Beyond that no man
can asplro. Mr. Bryan would be only a
little over forty years old at his retire
ment. At that time many rtfen nre only
beginning their sericus endeavors for suc
cess. He could not be expected to retire
to rural seclusion. It is Impossible to rele
gate a man to the back-number class at
such an age and yet it Is dilllcult to see
what there would be for Mr. Bryan to do
except to linger with energies and ambi
tion alert but Ineffectual, chafing because
there are no new worlds to conquer. Mr.
McKlnley's election would not only uphold
the national credit and deal a Btunnlng
blow to the populistlc-anarchlstio doctrine,
but It would relievo Mr. Bryan of 1ho
above suggested painful, personal pre
dicament. TOLD BY THE STARS.
