The Pirate In Business.
Monday's pronouncement ly the
court of this county in the matter of
the attachment proceedings frmwins
out of the Driesen failure, besides pass
Ins upon some phases of the act of 1W19
not heretofore Judicially Interpreted,
struck a vigorous blow nt an evil which
Is assuming grave proportions. It Is
the practice of defrauding foreign cred
itors, and Is carried on to an extent the
average layman little dreams of. One
direct effect is the serious Injury to the
credit of the city In some of the large
markets of the country, und as a result
great Injury Is worked to men who are
ambitious to embark in business In n
legitimate way. I'nless backed by
abundant capital tiny find their busi
ness road a thorny one in consequence
of the suspicions which the methods of
the pirates have sent broadcast.
The vigorous language of the court
in speaking of the piratical business
methods recently brought to Its atten
tion will have n good effect. It will be
notice to business parasites that the
eye of justice Is upon them, and that
they cannot hope to cany their plans
to a successful conclusion unless they
keep well within the pale of the law.
When a failure incurs It will not do to
Juggle with facts and accounts and
then endeavor to becloud the whole
proceedings with testimony prepared
for that purpose. On that point the
language of the court Is commendably
clear anil (Kclsive.
In no state has any branch of the
law attained perfection, but it Is the
universal complaint In the business
world, enst, west, north and south, that
the laws for the punishment of men
who in business transactions rob as
boldly and deliberately as does the
highwayman who lies in wait for his
victim, are entirely Inadequate. High
way robbery is one of the gravest
crimes on the criminal calendar and
one of the most severely punished.
Puslneb-s highway robbery, owing to
the defective condition of our laws,
never rises above false pretenses and
in only about one case In a hundred
Is It possible to hold the robber oo even
that trivial charge.
With this as the condition of affairs
it is gratifying to see the courts take
a stand that may prevent the highway
man from walking smilingly out of
court with a quasl-legifl seal of ap
proval on his business methods while
the stolen dollars bulge from his

fon why the lt'5 should not unite, if they
can, to elect one of their own number

Vnlted States senatorsliip question should
not enter into the speakership contest, and
that is rljilit. .Mr. iju.iy I said to deslro
tho election of Mr. Iloyer to the speaker
hip. That Is all right. He is entitled to
his choice the same us any other Repub
lican. Possibly Governor Hastings also'
fuvois Mr. Hoyer, and he too Is entitled to
n preference If he has one. Hut neither
the senator nor the governor is Justified-In

bers or citv members or groups tf
both to combine at pleasure for any
purpose within their reach there can
not of course b two opinion That
tight exists and Is not cilsputed. The
next point to consider Is whet net it Is
pIwrvs prudent and expedient to util
ize such a right. In the present case,
ex-Speaker Iloyer was put forward
ns n candidate for another term as
speaker, not because he Is a "city"
member-elect, but because hf. Is by all
odds the. ablest and most experienced
parliamentarian in the house and be
cause moreover he Is in thorough sym
pathy with Senator Quay's piogtamme
of reform legislation He was In the
field in his own name and right long
before the present or, perhaps we
should sav recent, "combine;" was
formed. The latter was Insttsated di
rectly by factional enemies of Sen
ator Quay--by men who are showing
gratitude to him for past kindnesses
by plotting night and day to destroy
him. Their cry of country against city
Is an old scare cry with nothing in it,
nud it Is used now as it has been used
before, solely to accomplish a factional
purpose. The men who are manipulat
ing, this movement the sly chaps who
don't appear on the surfuce are en
emies both to Quay and Hastings and
these two eminent. Republicans would
nut be human did they not recognize
this fact and take steps looking to
their own protection.
AVe make this explanation, not for
the Record's -sake,- for it knows the
facts ns well as we do and Is simply
posing for effect; but to enlighten any
of our leaders who may not have un
derstood the; exact purport of the or
ganized antagonism to Hoyer. It is
a blow at the present leadership of
the pat ty In Pennsylvania lacking only
strength to accomplish Its titter anni
hilation. Those who favor that leader
ship and are mindful of the victories
it has accomplished naturally stand
by Hoyer.
"We do not doubt." remarks Colonel
McOlure apropos of the intpntloi o the
Wanatnaker and Penrose forces to tight
for the Hnlted States senatorship In
part by petitions, "that half a doxfen
canvassers In this city could obtain in
a sl.igle day I, law names to a pe;.'Iou
recommending that Me. W ii.iuiiKer.
Mr. Penrose, Mi. Harrison. Mr. Young
or Mr. WJdener WimuH be executed on
the gibbet and. then drawn und quar
tered." That Is true almost every
where. The petition as a political sign
board is most unreliable.
Civil Service Bminds.
It is lepXrted that President Cleve
land Is considering the advisability of
placing fourth-class postmasters on the
civil service list. He has the power to
do so if he deems It advisable, and
a strong effort is lieins made by pres
ent holders of these ofllces to induce
him to use that power, thereby en
trenching them asalnst future dismis
sal. The fact that the present exe
cutive has extended the civil service
law over clerks, letter-carriers and mis
cellaneous employes of first and sec
ond class is taken as gtound for the
prediction that he will not leave his
administration's fourth-class appoint
ees to the uncertain mercies of a Re
publican regime.
There is no doubt that from the
standpoint of the Republican congressmen-elect
it would simplify matters
were Mr. Cleveland to fulfil this Inten
tion. Patronage to congressmen is u
source of weakness instead of strength,
livery man named for a postotllce
means a dozen men offended and pre
pared at the earliest opportunity to
take 'summary revenge. The putting
of fourth-class ollices on the civil ser
vice list would do away with nine
tetiths of the patronage worriments
of each member-elect of the Fifty
ilfth congress and leave him free to
strengthen himself among his consti
tuents by the performance of more se
rious and more generally acceptable
public service than the parcelling out
of spoils.
Hut on other rrounds wo fear that
the proposed move Is Impracticable.
It would carry with It In fairness and
logic the necessity eventually of ap
plying the same rules to the selection
of first and second class postmasters,
and to this few thoughtful citizens
would nsent. The head of a large post
olllce is an executive official wtio ought
to be in sympathy with the policies of
the administration in power and direct
ly responsible to that administration
for the carrying out within his area
of tesponsibility of its ideas and its
will. To make his office one eif life
tenure would be to encourage the swell
ing of his head far beyond the bounds
eif prudence or public comfort. The
application of civil service rules should
stop nt the line which divides skilled
labor, working under direction, from
executive brain and managerial re
sponsibility. It is Interesting to note that the Ma
gee force In Allegheny nnd elsewhere
are lining up for Waiiissiakor and
against Iloyer.

Electricity fr.itn Coal.
Pome time ago reference was made
In The Tribune to the Jacques process
of generating electricity directly ficm
coal without the Intermediary use of
steam. The man who solved thin long
perplexing problem, Dr. William W.
Jncqnes, of Hoston, has In the Decem
ber Issue of Harper's magazine nn In
tereEting paper descriptive of his ex
periments and of the conclusions thus
fur reached.
From this we learn that the appar
atus first used was very simple. A
platinum crucible was partially filled
with common potash, kept
suspension over a gas llame. A lump
of coke was hung in the potash by a
platinum wire. Into the medten potash
a stream of air was blown through a
tube. The wire holding the coke was
the negative pole, and a second wire
attached to the crucible was the, posit
ive pole of the generator. The oxy
gen of tho air combined with the car
bon; the production of hat was pre
vented by . the liquid; a conducting
path was afforded in which a current
of electricity was developed; the two
wires were attached to a small electric
motor, which moved in proportion to
the t in tent of air blown Into the liquid.
I vfinlng an "electrolytic carrier" us a
liquid which allows atoms of oxygen
ami a current eif electricity to pass
tbrough it. Dr. Jacques says: "Stat
ed scientific-ally, my discovery is that
if the oxygen of the air be caused to
combine with carbon, not directly as
in combustion, but through an inter
vening electiolytlc carrier, the stored
t:p energy of the carbon may be con
verted dir.Htiy Into electrical energy,
ami not Into beat. Stated crudely, my
Invention consists in generating elec
tricity by causing the oxygen of the nlr
to combine with coal beneath the level
of a suitable liquid."
Dr. Jae-o.ues deies not claim that this
invention has yet been brought to a
point where It Is commercially avail
able, though he thinks that he has
mude substantial progress and believes
that the object can be attained. If his
belief Is justified, there is, of course,
as the New York Times points out,
"nothing less than a revolution Im
pending more Important In Its ultimate
effects than the discovery of steam
power and the invention of the steam
engine. 'Electricity Is already not only
a motive power, but a source of heat
nnd light. It is now produced, ne-ce-riling
to Dr. Jacques, at an average
waste of 97.4 per cent., and by the use
of only 2.6 per cent, of the energy the
oretically obtainable from coal, though
the maximum results are at least three
times as good as this. Dr. Jacques'
two-horso-power apparatus, he Bays,
saves 32 per cent. That Is an enor
mous gain. Imagine the value of the
coal supply of the world multiplied by
four, taking the best results now got,
or by 12, taking the average; then
imagine even that gain doubled! It
makes Aladdin's lamp pale in Its in
ched mil glow,"
And think, too, of Its possible bear
ing on the ccal trade!
Dingley, of Maine, Is the latest sure
tip for secretary of the treasury. Ding
ley would be a prudent, cautious, ex
perienced and thoroughly honest llnan
cier. His appointment would command
general respect.
Judge Goff, of West Virginia, is be
lieved by many to be the owner of the
hut which, utter March 4, will sit on
tho brow of the next attorney-general;
and a good one he'd be, too.
Walter Wellman savs that Marls
Hanna would prefer the navy to the
treasury portfolio. Mark, It will be
remembered, Is something of a Bkip

The result was rather disastrous to the

generally tabooed at Princeton, is almost
a crime If practiced upon students geiing

them the names of the guilty sophs be

There has been much' speculation as to
what ought to be done with our ex-presl-der.ts.
Pensions have been proposed, us
well ns life senatorshlps. It does not
seem entirely lining that one who has
been at Rie head of the greatest nation
of the earth should be remanded to ro
tiriment and his public service perma
nently foreclosed. As it happens, but two
ex-presidents have been returned to pub
lic life. John tjulncy Adams representcl
a Massachusetts district In congress for
nearly twenty years, after leaving the
presidential chair, and died at his post of
duty, and Andrew Johnson had Just been
elected to tho United States senate, when
death came to him suddenly. Van Hurea,
Fillmore and Cleveland were presidential
candidates after Intervals of retirement,
and Cleveland was elected, the single in
stance of a return to the presidency, save
in Immediate succession. Other ex-presl.
dents have led prlvnte lives, some of
them, indeed, like John Adams, Jefferson,
Madison and Jackson, not without large
liillucnce uuon the currents of political
thought and action, but without olllclal
place. General Harrison should feel at
liberty to ace-ept an Invitation to enter
President McKinley's cabinet. He Is still
In the' full vigor of his faculties, and not
yet advnneed In asie. It is sincerely to
be hoped that he may see his way clearly
to re-entering the public service.
From the Philadelphia Record.
Tho way to get good times Is to make
them. McKlnley Is elected, sure enough.
It seems quite possible that a sound
money majority has also been secured
In the United States senate. The future
looks bright. But don't wait for the In
auguration of McKlnley to Inaugurate
prosperity. "One may cry 'honey,' 'honey,'
all day," says the Turkish provero,
"without bringing sweetness to the
mouth." Prophesying betterment doesn't
bring It. But the man who pays his small
bills sets the wheels turning. Nothing
now stands In the way of business but
Inertia. Give the cart a push. A dollar
Is still a dollar In the United States. It
pays better to use It than to hoard it.
Therefore, let the money fly. Let it earn
its keep. Whoever owes n small debt, and
Is able to pay It, and doesn't pay it, Is a
drone, a mossback and an obstructionist.
Hut the man who pays Is like a running
spring which constantly gives what It
gets for the world's refreshment. The
cheerful payer should take his place
alongside the cheerful giver as a twdn
deserver In the estimation of his kind
and his Creator.
From the New York Sun.
If the admission of Hawaii to our Union
becomes a feature of tha administration
of Mr. McKlnley, It w 111 be a peaceful an
nexation. With the securing of a proper
revenue for tho country, the construction
of the isthmus canal, as soon as a plan Is
agreed upon by the government's engi
neers, will be no longer a grievous burden
to carry. The securing of the Island of
St. Thomas as n coaling station promises
few obstacles. Tho foreign planks In the
St. Louis platform are sound, straight,
and American, and on them, as on Its hon
est money planks, the new administration
can stand, wdth the confident expectation
of peace and prosperity for the country.

There are some things which Mr. Cleve

cannot, It would seem, prevent wholly
tho shipment of arms to Cuba. He can
not exjiel from this country the Cuban
patriots who reside her. He does not
