SCnANTON, DECEMBER 4, 1000.
In Hpltc of claims Hint nre nl ready
HpiliiRltifr .,uii. there will probably bo
no tllillciilty tills year In determining
the original good Kovernmcnt miin of
That Basis fit Settlement.
IN A CONFUSION of nnines aris
ing fiom nn Identity of Interests
unintended Injustice Is liable to
he wrought. The rcWHpapcrs of
our city and citizens generally have
been crediting to the Men's Union, of
Orecn Itldge, the woik of Inquiry, de
tection, prosecution and punishment
which hns just culminated lu the
signing of 11 paper whereby ton coun
cllmen confess to dishonorable pi no
tices promise to resign, agree not to
seek otllcc again within five yrais and
conttlhute to four dps-lgiiuted ohnrL
tlos a Mini of money equal or approxi
mately equal to the known amount of
their olfendlng. The Men's Union init
iated the movement by arousing pub
lie Intel est In the need of municipal
bouse-clcaiilng, and It subsequently
did what lay within Its power to ex
pedite the movement and to tiling
forth concrete lesulls: but thr sub
stantial burdens of this cnterpil.se and.
the executive direction of It have fal
len upon the organization of public
spirited gentlemen known as the
Municipal League. This explanation
Is made at the request of the Men's
Union and as a matter of justice.
t'rder the heading, "Justice Sold
Out," the North American of Phila
delphia, organ of the "VVnnamakcr in
fluence, lliustiatcs the adage that a
little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
The Municlpd League of Scranton 1i.t won a
nolnMe victory in its campaign aK.umt cor
n'pHon in the city government, but in Krant
intf terms to the scoimilrela whom it lias e-Vo-.cd
it throws .mnj the fruits of victoi) and
lnscly deserts tlic cause of reform. It is dif
ficult to hclicic that a couit has become a
party to .1 settle ment en compounding nl crime
to vicious ami (!or.ullli(,r to the community, but
the assertion is positively nude that the judges
Imp contented In illuct .1 111lict of not Riillly
under the londitions stated, 'lire escape of ton-fr-ed
bnhc-takors fiom the lrR.il pi natty of
their crimes will do more to ikitinr.ilin bntiety
nud cntoui.iRc olfitial corruption thin all the
work Hie lensuc his (low tn lesti.iin iase.il
ity. If a deticted roRiic enn buy immunity
from preset utlon hj Riilnn up liis ofllcial plan
nud part of hi-, plunder to tlie icfurnicis, in wint
nipert are the lefintneis superior to him in
virtue? Such compromises with minimis double
the crime, and put muuhipil piv eminent be
tweecn the uppci and in tin r luill-tones of cor
ruption. The 1 licit which siiirtlnns tlie birtcr
inR of Just lie for political advantage and cull
In hind is nn enemy to smiety more dangerous
than a bribe-taking couneihnan.
The trouble with the North Ameil
can is that it has so -long cultivated
the role of the Pharisee, as to be non
compos mentis on any topic Involving
the difference between merely 'profes
sional and really honest leform. The
Municipal league and their colleagues
In the local effort to clean house ate
not at work, as is the North American,
on the wolf-ln-sheep's-clothlng prin
ciple. They- aro not venting spleen or
pursuing ulteiior ends. Consequently
they do not have to keep up a furious
claim to superior righteousness as a
cloak for factional deals, dickers and
crime". The North American falls to
undeistand them because there Is no
body In Its environment who has any
practical acquaintance with honesty of
purpose carried forward without in
dlctlveness. Mr. St urges' statement of the motives
and considerations which Influenced
the league to bettlo the ten cases on
the published terms Is clear, candid
nnd wholly creditable. The basis of
settlement Is an excellent Illustration
of common sense and Intelligent ex
pediency as distinguished from fanati
cism. The pushing of these cases re
lentlessly would Inevitably have pro
voked a sympathetic reaction and a re
coll Into hostility among the very
clnsses In the comniunlty whose cordial
moral support, now' secured nnd as
sured, Is necessary to the future suc
cess of practical local reforms, it Is
a cupltal exemplification of the doctiine
that where sometimes the letter of the
law killetb, the spirit makoth free.
As for the. concurionce of tho judges,
a year's clogging ofMJie oourtx with
endless vexation und confusion, has
been averted, nnd It would bu a foitu
na'ie development for a long-suffeilng
community If more cases could bu
equally well settled out of court.
Tho twentieth century controveisy
again assumes a threatening aspect.
t Is noticed that no protest comes
from tho Chinese regarding the toot
ing of Pekln by foreign military au
thorities who would "preserve" tho
treasures of tho Tartar city by ap
propriating then and sending them
out of tho country, Tho only demon
titrations against this system of whole
sale robbery has been made by powers
that have evidently been too ittto for
a share In the plunder, There is some
'tiling almost pathetlu In the silence of
Ithe unhappy" native people as they
utand helpless nnd crushed1 while their
treasures are dragged away by their
cohqiwerprs. And tho fact Ibecoinea
more vividly uppnrent that there is a
lark side of the Chinese affair which
cannot het laid at tho door of 'the

Hon. 1-Vederlck Degolnn, Porto
JIIco'h fit at delegate to congress, evi
dently uourln Democratic denuncia
tion nn a tlepubllcan carpet-bagger.
Ho states that his people nre anxious
to "become root and branch American."
The President's Hessage,
"f 1113 MEtiSAOE opens with a
I brief survey of the grow-
JL Ing strength and Increasing
power for good of republican
Institutions nnd American liberty at
the outgoing of tho old nnd the In
coming of the now century. The Chi
nese problem Is made the dominant
question In our foreign Intercourse and
an elnborate review Is given of the de
tails of military operations and diplo
matic steps taken In the progress of the
settlement up to the present time, nnd
which have been made known to the
public by official announcements In the
past. The clrculnr note to the powers
of July 3 Is cited nnd reaffirmed, and
the opinion Is expressed that conditions
give hope of a complete settlement of
nil questions Involved. The securement
of adequate guarantees for liberty of
faith Is put forward as one of the es
sential factors of a.durnble adjustment,
"since Insecurity of those natives who
may embrace alien creeds Is a scarcely
less effectual assault upon the rights
of foreign worship and teaching than
would be the direct Invnslon thereof,"
Touching upon the possible Inability
of China to pay a HUfllclent money In
demnity, the president says: "I am
disposed to think that due compensa
tion may be made In part by Increased
gimrantePH of security for foreign
rights and Immunities, nnd, most Im
portant of all, 'by the opening of China
to (he equal commerce of all the world.
These views have been and will be
earnestly advocated by our representa
tives." In the event of protracted di
vergence of views In the negotiations
the president favorably Inclines to Rus
sia's suggestion that the matter of In
demnities bp relegated to the court of
arbitration at The Hague.
In touching upon the Paris exposition
tho message devotes a congratulatory
paragraph to the United States exhib
its, in being not only the largest for
eign display, but among the earliest In
place and best arranged and more com
pletely covering the entire classifica
tions than that of any other nation,
ranking next in total number after
those of France Itself, The awarding
of a larger number of prizes to Ameri
can exhibitors than to those of any
other nation Is accepted as a striking
recognition of the merits of the ex
hibits. Uncertainty Is expressed as to the
prospect of our well-nigh extinguished
German trade under the new burden of
the meat Inspection law and the confi
dent hope Is expressed that further
regulations will be free from past dis
criminations. The soeedy and complete establish
ment of the frontier line to which we
are entitled under tho Russo-Amerlcan
treaty for the cession of Alaska is rec
ommended in view of the possibility of
f 1 lotion In the working of the modus
Taking tho -lynching of Italians at
Tallulah as a text, the president te
news lecommendatlons that federal
courts have jurisdiction In Interna
tional cases where the ultimate respon
sibility of the federal government may
be Involved. The president fidvises that
congress make gracious provisions for
Indemnity to these Italian sufferers In
the same form and proportion as here
tofore. Satisfaction Is expressed at the for
mal notification of the ratification of
The Hague treaty by the United States,
Austria, Belgium, Denmark, England,
France, Germany, Italy, Persia, Portu
gal, Roumania, Russia, Siam, Spain,
Sweden and Norway, and the Nether
lands. Japan Is added to the list.
Regarding the Nlcarnguan canal, the
information Is given that the Nlcar
aguan government shows a disposition
to take measures to promote the water
way, after having declared the so
styled Eyre-Cragin option void. The
convention with Great Britain to re
move any objections which might arise
out of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty to
the construction of the canal Is com
mended to the early attention of the
Turkish relations are dismissed with
the assertion that "We wait the ful
fillment of the promise of the sultan to
make reparation for the Injuries suf
fered by American citizens In Armenia
nnd elsewhere In tho Turkish emplie."
The recommendation Is made that the
ponate take action on the commercial
conventions submitted at the last sas
slon looking to the operation of the
policy of reciprocity.
A paiagraph is also devoted to the
Pan-American exposition at Buffalo,
and to a commendation of Its purpose.
The financial operations by the gov
ernment during tho year are levlewed
lu detail. "It will be the duty, as I am
sure it will be the disposition of the
congiesfl," 'lays the president, "to pro
vide whatever further legislation Is
needed to Insure tho continued parity
under all conditions between our two
forms1 of metallic money, silver and
gold." Touching the disposition of the
surplus the president recommends
1 eduction of Internal revenue war taxes
In the sum of 130,000,000. "This reduc
tion should be secured by the remis
sion of those taxes which experience
has shown to bo the most burdensome
to the industries of the people." Tho
inclusion tn tho 1 eduction Is specially
urged of tho legacy tax on bequests for
public uses of a literary, educational or
Immedlato action Is urged on meas
ures to promoto American shipping and
foreign trade and we are told; "Tho
remarkable growth of our bteel Indus
tries, the pi ogress of shipbuilding for
the domestic trade, and our steadily
maintained expenditures for the navy
have created an opportunity to place
tho United States in the first rank of
commercial maritime powers."
The president calls attention to 'the
passage In his last annual message for
early action to remedy such evils as
might 'be found to exist In connection
with combinations of capital organized
Into trusts, und be repeat's the language
of the previous message, adding! "Ite
stralnt Upon such combinations ns ttro
Injurious, nnd which nre within federal
Jurisdiction, should be promptly ap
plied by the congress."
The treatment of the Philippine
question consists largely of a review
of events and acts there during tho
past year, recalling the president's de
termination tn await the decision of
the wilt of congress ns to the establish
ment of a form of government. Ho re
ports favorable progress towards pa
cification and the Institution of local
government. Instructions to the com
mission nre embodied In full, nnd the
preliminary report, which has already
been published, aro cited as to the im
provements following the arrival ot
tho commission In Manila. Later re
ports from the commission nre said to
show yet more encouraging ndvances
towards good government In the Inter
ests of humanity nnd with the aim of
building up nn enduring self-supporting
nnd self-ndmlnlstcrtng community.
Legislation should bo along these gen
erous lines, In the unselfish discharge
of an unsought trust, which tho for
tune of war has thrown upon the na
tion. Reiterating his deslgnntlon of
the Filipinos as "tho wards of the na
tion," tho president says: "It Is our
duty so to treat thein that our flag
may be no less beloved In the moun
tains of Luzon and the fertile zones
of Mindanao and Negros than it Is at
home, that there ns here it shall be
the revered symbol of liberty, enlight
enment and progress Ini every avenue
ot development. The Filipinos are a
race quick to learn and to profit by
knowledge. He would be rash who,
with the teachings of contemporan
eous history in view, would fix a limit
to tho degree of culture nnd advance
ment yet within the reach of these
! people If our duty toward them be
Legislation Is recommended to con
fer upon the secretary of the interior
supervision over public lands in Porto
Rico, with the duty to nscertnln the
location and quantity of lands the title
to which remlned In tho crown of
Spain when Porto Rico was ceded.
After reviewing the circumstances
of the constitutional convention In
Cuba, the president announces that
when the convention concludes Its la
bors he will transmit to congress the
constitution for such action ns may
be deemed advisable. The necessity
for a Pacific cable between the United
States and Hawaii, with extension to
Manila, Is urged anew.
Increased needs of the army by rea
son of tho new possessions, the coun
try's const defenses, and the new ar
my posts, are pointed out, and the
necessity In the Immediate future of
from 45,000 to 60,000 men In the Philip
pine? Is stated. "It must be appar
ent," says the president, "that we will
require an army of about 60,000 and
that during present conditions In
Cuba and the Philippines the presi
dent should have authority to-increase
the force to the present number of
100,000. Included in this number, au
thority should be given to raise native
troops in the Philippines up to 15,000,
which the Taft commission believe
will be more effective in detecting and
suppressing guerillas, assassins and
ladrones than our own soldiers."
Recommendations of the secretary of
the navy for new vessels and for ln
ci eased force are approved, und the
establishment of a national naval re
serve and of the grade of vice admiral
Is recommended, and also provision
for suitable rewards for special merit.
Earnest consideration Is bespoken
for the recommendation of the gover
nor of Hawaii for the development or
water supplies on the public lands in
the Islands, especially by Irrigation,
with a view of promoting land settle
ments. Apportionment of representation
among the states under the new census
is recommended, as provided by the
Attention Is called afresh to the ne
cessity for amendment of the alien
contract law and the Important feat
ures of the rightful application of the
eight-hour law for the benefit of labor
and of the principle of arbitration are
commended to congress. ,
Additional appropriations are urged
for the use of the civil service com
mission; the necessity of a hall of pub
lic records In Washington Is pointed
out; congress Is urged to participate in
the celebration of John Marshall Day,
on February 4 next, as well as In the
centennial anniversary of the estab
lishment of the seat of government In
the district of Columbia, The mes
"In our great prosperity we must
