Trickery in Politics Does It Pay?
ACCOIJDINCJ " TO Theoaore
Hurt, whose word, to any
one who knows him, Is as
good as a Bolil bond, Senator-elect
Drury of Plttston. on the dny
of his nomination, assured Mr. Hart,
emphatically, that If elected ho would
act with the regular Kopubllcans and
not with tho Insurgents. County Chair
man Frank Wheaton, County Conmls
Hkmer John M. Jones and Recorder L.
r. Holcotnb, of Luzerne county, are
quoted by Jlr. Hart as having reeptved
similar assurances. In the face of this
Mr. Drury announces his intention to
bolt the Republican legislative caucus.
Instances of trickery are not uncom
mon In politics. There are men who
look upon a political pledge as having
less value than an agreement made in
other fields of human activity. Some
regard it as an Indication of smartness
to practice deception regarding their
attitude in u political controversy un
til the time arrives to unmask; they
enjoy creating u sensation. Bur the
longer a man lives and observes the
less value he will put upon this con
ception of political expediency. In the
case of Mr. Drury, for example, here
was a man successful In business and
generally respected. An issue sharply
dividing his party arose and lie aspired
to ofllce. If we accept the version of
Mr. Hart, a gentleman In whom we
have Implicit confidence, Mr. Drury
did what no honorable man would do
to gain an oflice; he deceived some of
his lifelong neighbors and friends and
won their political help by f-ilse pre
:ences. In emphasizing our point it is not
material whether Quay or anti-Quay
sentiment is uppeimost in Mr. Drury's
district. Nor is It necessary to discuss
the relative merits of the factional
controversy. Tho struggle over the
senatorship will come, go and in a few
weeks ho forgotten. If the regulars
win, Drury's day of opportunity will
be few; If the insurgents win, they will
have other fish to fry beside continuing
attentions to a man against whose
political character the accusation of
political deceit lias been made by
reputable witnesses. After It is all
oer Drury will come horn a to where
he formerly enjoyed general confidence
and respect; and thsro will !- many of
his neighbors who will look upon him
as politically unfair; who will cease to
place dependence upon his word when
pledged; who will feel that the current
rumor that during the campaign $1500
of insurgent money went ns a contri
bution to his election expenses may
have had a foundation of truth.
There Is always one consolation for a
defeated candidate. Ho can join the
great army of the undismayed.
Recipes for Success.
OME TRUTHS which are old
are nevertheless worth re
peating. Marshall Field, the
great merchant of Chicago, in
a letter to Rev. Dr. Hillis, pastor o?
Plymouth church, Brooklyn, written in
response to a request for his views
upon the methods by which a young
man may be successful In business, re
peats a number and his counsel has
widespread interest nnd value.
Mr, Field's first advice to a young
man wishing to begin a business ca
reer Is to find out what his natural
bent is. That learned, then jump In
and master every detail. The trouble
with most young men, he finds, is that
they are content simply to jog along
in an Indifferent kind of way from pay
day to pay day, making no effort to in
crease their efficiency and with It their
value. It is tho young man of
Industry, thoroughness and mind alert
to pick out wnys of improvement who
attracts tha notice, confidence and fl
"nnlly tho reward of his superiors.
Ouhli) of business hours the candl
rtate for success In life, according to
Mr. Field, must not depart fiom tho
ways laid down In tho familiar pre
cepts, ,JJo Is loeointnended to choose
roputnhA 'companions, cultivating men
of lullupucQ- when possible); to Indulge
temperately Ui clean amusoiuuntii; to
read substantial books; nnd to strive
to devoiop character and self-control,
On this subject Mr. Field Is thoroughly
old-fushloned, "The young mun," ho
says, "possessing u cotisclenco that
can lint' brook tho slightest suspicion of
wrongdoing, and which Insists on
steadfast and undovlating truthful
ness, sturdy i honesty and strict devo
tlrtn to duty under nil circumstances,
has a fortune 'to begin with. Tho nbll
Ity to restrain appetite, passions,
tongue and temper, to be their muster
and not their slave', in a word, absolute
self-control, Is also of first importance;
ono who cannot, gtrvern himself s un
fit to govern othera."
To tho fqregolng virtues must be
added one ijther economy. A young
man may ba all that Mr. Field has
described anq yet If ho does not save
out of His earnings he will not have
ready money when good investments
offer nor will he bo so likely to get
credit. To save money In these mod
ern days, when tho whole energy of
our complex civilization seems to bo
devoted to devising new Inducements
to Its expenditure, is perhaps the most
dimeult problem of nil, It Is especially
dlfllcult In oilr cities nnd for that rea
son the young man who proves his
ability to solve It strongly fortifies his
rlnlms Upon tho confidence of those
Not every young man who fulfils all
these tests will succeed In reaching the
height's. At tho best business Is full of
uncertainties, and vhcro chnnco litis
one good mnn up It Is Just ns liable to
throw another good man down. Nor Is
chance ritono nt fnnlt. Borne good men
well lltted for subordinate positions
lack the Iron In their blood to tnkc per
sonnl command. In that ense success
consists In knowing one's capacities.
Yet upon the whole the bright and
clean young mnn who Is not afraid to
work, both with his hands and his
brain, nnd who works Intelligently, to
a definite purpose, hns today unbound
ed opportunities of advancement.
Kvery employer Is looking for him, and
the demand far exceeds the supply.
Contingent upon tho enactment of
the ship subsidy bill now pending In
congress, Alexnnder Brown & Sons of
Baltimore are planning the organiza
tion of n new transportation company,
to Innludo a number of existing steam
ship companies. The proposed capital
of the new company Is $27,000,000; and.
the plans contemplate the construc
tion of eight new freight and passenger
steamships for ocean transportation.
To this of course the Democratic party
will object. It is so stubbornly op
posed to ocean 'subsidies that sooner
than yield It would have all our ocean
commerce transported in foreign ships.
BY MEANS OF a discreditable!
trick tho corporations com
prehended within the pro
visions of the Ford franchise
tax law In New York state are now
endeavoring to defeat that Just act
of legislation. To understand the trick
It Is necessary to recall the history of
the bill's enactment.
When Governor Roosevelt first an
nounced his intention to favor such a
measure, believing as he did that tho
corporations owning public franchises
were not bearing their fair share of
the public tax burden, prominent poli
ticians advised him to desist. They
said that' to continue would array
against him Influences so powerful
that he would be crushed. He went
ahead but he fought fnlily. He noti
fied the corporations of his intentions
and invited them to favor him with
their arguments and views. They
paid no attention to the Invitation, rs
lylng on their ability to smother the
bill in the legislature.
Just before the session closed the
goernor rallied his friends in the as
sembly and, much to the consternation,
of the corporations and politicians,
the bill Imposing a tax on franchises
was passed. Thi-n began a rush of
men to Albany to se2 the governor
and persuade him to veto it. Defect's
were pointed out. Ono in particular
was made much of. As originally
passed the Ford law put the assessing
of franchise values In the hands of
local assessors. The big New York
corporations complained bitterly that
this feature of the-law laid them liable
to gross extortion from Tammany and
they emphasized this point so strong
ly that Governor Reosovelt finally
agreed to recall the legislature in extra
session and recommend an amend
ment to the law vesting the power to
make assessments in a board of state
assessors specially appointed for that
purpose. He stipulated, however, thnti
no other amendments, especially nona
fatal to the bill's just intent, should
be attempted; and to thwart all pos
sibility of thimble rigging in this di
rection he withheld his signature from
the original bill until the extra ses
sion had adjourned, Intending to ap
prove it without amendment If tha
amendments were objectionable.
Now it develops that the corporate
cry of fear of Tammany was nn arti
fice designed to Impose on the gover
nor to the extent of getting him to
accept the state assessment board
amendment, a provision alleged to be
In conflict with the constitutional re
quirement that assessments for taxa
tion can be made only by elected as
sessors. A lower court has held that
thla provision vitiates the entire law,
but the question is to go before the
Court of Appeals. The laising of this
question by the very interests In whosj
behalf and on whose plea for justice
the provision was Inserted Instantly
suggests bad faith and supplies a
broad hint as to why, Just prior to the
Philadelphia convention, there wai
such a frantic anxiety on the part of
certain politicians noted for their af
filiations with the New York corpora
tions to (transfer Colonel Roosevelt
from Albany to Washington.
A great deal now depends on the kind
of stuff in Governor-elect Ben Odell,
If ho is tho right man In the right
pluco hit will stand by his predecessor's
actions and fight the battle for fulr

The Chinese Problem,
ACCORDING TO the United
States, China Is nn Inde
pendent nation, with all the
rights belonging under In
ternational law to an Independent na
tion. Included among those rights is
the right to try thoso Chinese sub
jects accused of grave crimes, and
upon conviction to administer punish
ment by processes which havo tho
sanction of Chinese custom nnd law. If
this right s abridged tho sovereignty
of China is abrdged and there remains
no well-established check upon foreign
Intermeddling and aggression.
But tho disposition of some of tho
other powers, especially Germany,
seems to be to deny to the Chinese
government the right of exercising
hoverelgn authority over the Chinese
people, b'ut under ono pretext or an
other to send European troops upon
random errands of native punishment
and loot and to exact humiliating and
Impossible requirements of the Chinese

readily nppreclatc why the decent and

ment In tho present emergency In
China Is criticized In European papers
for its want of energy and decision.
Tho conventional European view of tho
proper means of treating with China
Is to pull a gun tho moment you want
something. Mr. Holcombe shows that
the Boxer uprisings are the natural and
Inevitable response. His experience of
twenty years' oinclal service In China
corroborates and approves every step
our government hns taken and It Is to
be hoped that tho administration at
Washington will continue to exert an

It Is easier 'to tnllc about than to
effect a $15,000,000 reduction In war
taxes. The patent medlclno men want
the stamp tax on medicines removed.
The brewers want the extra tax on
beer removed. The general publlo
wants the penny tax on express re
ceipts and telegrams removed and
numerous special Interests have other
plans to urge. In the next session a
job on tho ways and means committee
will be no sinecure.
In the opinion of Senator Harris,
of Kan?as, "the Republican party haa
clearly demonstrated that it stands for
the corporation ns against the indi
vidual citizen." Now that the sena
tor's Republican constituents have
turned him down, he should make
haste to join- a corporation and. thus
get in the swim.
Last year, because of a lack of coal
ing stations and the Increased
demands made upon the naval
establishment, coal for the navy cost
Uncle Sam $2 more per ton on the
average than ever before. Additional
naval bases and depots of supply are
fully as necessary as additional war
ships. They can give Americans some
points In Russia. From Moscow to
Irkutsk, on the Siberian railroad, Is
3371 miles, yet a first-class ticket, one
way, including the very finest sleeping
accommodations, superior to any in the
United States, costs only $43.30.

In Boston the institution U known as the
"wajfarerV lodge," and in in charge of the poor

Major Qulney, and, since its inception seven
years ago, has accommodated some 23,000 lodgers

vent them from paying for the necessities. Kv
ery encouragement possible is given to the men
and, in order that they may retain their self
respect, they are required to labor in the ariotis
city departments in payment for their lodging
and rations. The principal employment, how
ever, is in cutting wood, which is sold in the
fall and winter, the proceeds of which are added
to the support of the Institution. Tho lodging
house costs the city of Hoston about $S,000 per
year, and, it is claimed, raves the city indi
rectly more than $20,000 per year, to bay nothing
of the general good accomplished.
for more than ten jears the city of Wash

Ing house, congrcfs annually appropriating the
sum necehsary for Its maintenance. Its capacity
is limited to fifty inmates per night, whoso wants
are looked after by (.even employes. All sorts
and conditions of men'are received, but theru
are no accommodations for women. Harli appli
cant for admission is registered, asked where he
worked last, and how long he has been out of
work. Ho Is then given a ticket which entltliu
hiin to three dajs subsistence. Two meals a
day are provided, which consists of bread, cof

and rice or barley. Meals are sencd at 7 a. m.

In consideration for tills subsistence, the bene

New York city caics for this Indigent class
by subsidising a number of charitable Institu
tions carried on under private au.pices. In this
way tens of thousands of dollars are wasted an
nually, for fully JO per tent, of the amounts,
appropriated for this work are spent In salaries.
The work could bo performed more satisfactorily
and at less cxpenso under a well manuged city
department. Ualtlmore, Toledo, Louisville and
other American citifs conduct similar institu
tions. Municipal lodging houses were Introduced In
Kngllsh cities ut about the same time as in
America, but hey have nude mere notable pioj.
reus in the smaller titles than on this side of

many Ihiropean cities, however, were occupying
this field of charity long before similar work
was instituted in America. Some of the Kngllsh
lodging houses tost an enormous amount to
build and aio operated at a loss; while others
arc woiked at a profit. The KnglUh authorities,

TAIL TWISTING DEAD.
From the Toronto Globe.
In the campaign which lias just closed In the
United States the Democrats everywhere en
deavored to make otes by accusing President
McKinley of undue friendliness towards Orcit
Britain. As in the foimer campaign, too, it was
repicscntcd that the maintenance of the gold
standard was un object spec! illy elrslred by the
United Kingdom as the great eieditor nation.
The refusal of the McKinley administration to
Interfere on behalf of the Roers was also worked
for all that It was worth. The president and
his advisers were also charged with having pro
moted the Hay-Pauncefote treaty respecting the
Nlcaraguan canal, to the detriment of American
The administration did not assume an apolo
getic attitude towards any of these- matteis,
but appear to have adopted the view that tha
hostility to Britain is now a negligible quan
tify. The result of the election appears to Justi
fy their estimates in this respect. If these ap
peals had any effect at all it was piohably to
throw the votes of natiirallred Canadians and
old countrymen into the Republican column. At
all events the trade of the twisters of the lion's
tall appears to lie dead, and the fact may be
hailed with satisfaction,
Its evil effect in the past ran hardly be over
estimated. It virtually prevented any rational
or easy international relations between the tvv:
countries, a condition of affairs In which, of
ceurse, Canada was implicated. Public men in
the United Mates were always uneasy when
called on to discuss any question alfeiting thu
two countries, for fear of having the cliaige of
truckling to Britain, no niatter how groundless
Biich a charge- might be. urged against them.
In fact, no tic.ity with Britain, however favor
able it might be to United States interests, hud
the ghost of a chance of passing the senata
when any considerable election contest was in
view, for fear of the use that might be made
of it by tho opposite paity, llio friendliness of
Rriluln dining the SpanUh-Aiiieili'an war appears
to have changed all that, and it is u matter
for blntere congratulation that such (is the case.
