I lor for Sotunton, npnrt from
". iiny question of InciTtiMod
(ir-nVo, which economical ndinlnlntiu-
tlon nilKhl obvlute. urlsrs from the fm-t
r, thiil In city Kovcrnmont bimeil on such
a rlmrtcr responsibility Is nlmoHl hope-

The mayor of a. third-class city has It
within his power to shape the affairs of
government pretty much to his llklnc.
Councils may occasionally decline to
follow his lead and by control of ao
ptoprlntlons may at intervals hamper
him; hut It has yet to be shown that
a, strotiEr man In the executive chair
with power over every executive de
partment Is unable substantially, In
spite of these Incidental obstacles, to
' rolled his will 'and. policy in the con
duct of municipal affairs.
Under the second-class charter the
mayor has virtually no power what
ever save that of veto. The heads of
the important executive departments
are elective by councils and in turn, as
appouis from the- practice in both
rittsburjr and Allegheny, they exercise
a potent influence in determining the
personnel of councils. The people, when
angered, may succeed in displacing: a.
number of objectionable eotincllmen,
but unless they can command a major
ity In both branches in opposition to
the inevitable city ring they might for
practical purposes as well have none.
Under the second-class charter, if the
director of a, department incurs criti
cism they are powerless to reach and
lemove or discipline him save when re
inforced by a majority in councils.
When it Is understood that the politic
department director always distributes
the patronage and perquisites of his
ofliee with a view to retaining the in
terested favor of a majority in councils
und is in a position to be of material
aid or injury to the councilman seek
ing re-election, the probabilities of un
organized public opinion being able
successfully to compete with him for
a. majority control of councils In a city
accustomed to elect councilmen of the
calibre most familiar in Scranton may
brt computed by the reader at his
AA'e said a moment ago that the ques
tion of expense Incident to the pro
posed new order might be regulated' by
economical administration. But with
out a responsible single executive head
to safeguard and direct the public In
terests as contrasted with the private
or factional Interests of the council
manic majority in power, how Is eco
nomical administration to be initiated
or preserved? This is the great prac
tical question underlying the whole
ptoposltlon of Scranton's acceptance ot
4 second-class charter. Until it can be
answered satisfactorily those who up
hold the expediency of seeking legis
lative escape from the new classifica
tion have, it seems to us, by far the
better end of the argument.
The Introduction of a sympathy
resolution for Paul Kruger almost nn
soon us congress was fairly opened the
other day was an exhibition of bad
taste. President Kruger is not in con
dition at present to bo benefitted or
Injured by resolutions of sympathy
from any nation, and resolutions of
this sort could well be postponed un
til business of more importance is
The Ship Subsidy Bill.
" '-H1 FISCAL, year just ended
I has been the most prosper-
I ous year in the history of
the merchant shipping of
the United States. As appears from
tKi report of the commissioner of
navigation, the total tonnage, fi,l6l,S.l9
gross tons, was greater than for any
ycutr since 1861, when American ton
mfjjo, reached Its maximum to that
tliJie,t'8,v3J,,8,13,BipsM tons. As our mil
1 1 fit lea t Ji o ii Included ninny vessels not
mlv required by law lo bo enrolled,
Mwyri.J.lmt even In tonnage Amer
ican merchant shipping Is now greater
Hum at any ' Unto In the past. The
tojinafefl' HulU during the year lOim,
iiHfiiely 3H3,7t0 gross tons, has been
exjeedh In amount by our minimi
oujipitj only six years, und In value
and ofllfiuncy has never been equaled.
Jtfrlno construction now In progress
nr under contract promises u greater
ndilltlon to our merchant Meet for the
current Hscal year than last year, and
If tho( present, ruto Is maintained, tho
nejv ofijiagq will exceed that ever
built In'tho United Rtntes, except In
uil nnd 18GS.
(lut, us the commissioner points out,
Arjierlcnn shipping in the coasting or
ilotuestiu tralo must bo distinguished
frrjni 'ItVnerlcun'shlpplng In tho foreign
trijde,'rTh6 'former trade Is restricted
sofijly to American vessels; the latter
irijdc Is necessarily open to the com
peJItioiVof foreign vessels. Orowth In
the former Is u matter of internal do
volopmeut, measured by domestic,
standurds. Growth In the latter Is our
paft In the world's maritime develop
ment," measured by International
standards. The giowth of American
shaping, .to wlilcli the facts just
atujed tqntlfy," has been wholly wlth-
In the coiislltiR Untie. Int that trade
our lonnngo linn risen from 2,897tlS
gross tons In lsfit lo U3S.il". gross tons
In moo, nnd two-thirds of tho Incienso
hn.i been upon the (Irent Lakes'.
Where foreign competition enters,
iiur registered tonnage bus decreased

Yet to quale again ft out Commis
sioner of "Navigation Cliiunberlnln,
"the conditions for a sitctessful eltoit
to secure again a proper share of the
carrying trade nnd to ro-ostnbllsh our
commercial flag upon the oceans lmve
not In ii generation been so favorable
as nt this time. 'Our heavy, contin
uous expenditures for tho navy luivo
created shipbuilding plants adapted to
tho largest mercantlln construction,
(tttr surpusslng production of coal and
steel Insures cheaper ninterlnls than
can be obtained elsewhere, nnd nbun
dnnce ot capital, the product of labor's
prosperity during the past few years,
awaits new enterprises. Coupled with
these ndvantnges at home, temporary
causes have increased the cost of ship
building obroad. These llatterlng con
siderations must not blind us to our
backwardness. We shall build, oven
In this yenr of great activity in our
shipyards, less thnn one-tenth the.
shipping for foreign trade to be bulll
by our principal competitor. AVe do
not carry T, per cent, of the world's
sea-borne trafllc. The effort, to be
successful, must be begun promptly
and unremittingly prosecuted for a se
ries of years, und Is entitled to the
eo-operatlon of congress."
The shipping bill now under con
sideration In the senate Is framed to
fit this need and has the heartiest in
dorsement of experts. In bilef It pto
vldes subsidies for American vessel-,
in foreign trade based on gross ton
nage of the ship and mileage. The
subsidies are calculated to offset the
difference In the cost of building and
navigating American vessels com
pared with Biltlsh vessels. Ameiican
vessels already built are subsidized
for ten years; vessels hereafter built
for twenty years. The maximum sub
sidy payable in any one year is fixed
at $9,00U,O0O. At the present time the
expenditure under the bill would be
about $t, .",00,000 a year. A ten-knot
ship with n mileage of 1.3,000 miles per
annum would earn $!41,7i. A twenty
one knot ship with iv mileage of SS.'JOO
miles per annum would earn $301,290.
The bill admits to American registry
all foreign steamships owned by
Americans on January 1, :'.iO. such
steamships are entitled to hnlf sub
sidles. Before these forelgn-builH
steamships can be registered and re
ceive subsidy owners must build in
the United Stntes corresponding
steamships, as in tho cases of the New
York and Paris. All vessels receiving
subsidy are required lo carry the
ocean malls of the United States free
of charge, and may be impiessed aa
auxiliary cruisers or transports.
In short, the proposition is to risk
$!,(j00,000 a year in the hope of saving
$200,000,000 now paid by Americans to
foreigners annually for ocean freights.
Coventor Pingree appears to base
his granting of pardons upon the

Trifling with Army Reform.
IT SEEMS to us, after careful study
of all the arguments pro and con,
that the houso military commit
tee has not acted wisely in its
mutilation of the carefully drawn bill
of Secretary Root for army reonriin
lzation. It has stricken out the pro
vision giving preference In promo
tions above a certain grade to officers
of the regular arm now holding volun
teer commissions, tho effect of which
would be to cause a strife aniong.po
lltical influences for tho promotion of
inexperienced volunteers. There are
oflicers by tho hundreds In the regular
arm whoso heads have grown gray In
the faithful nnd efficient service of
their country under all kinds of try
ing conditions among tho Indians, in
Arctic Alaska, wherever tlicro was
tough work to be done, requiring ex
perience and soldierly skill and It Is
proposed by the house military com
mittee, in tho promotions incident to
an enlarged army, to set these quiet
nnd faithful regulars aside so that sons
of senators or other epauletted bene
tlclarles of social or political pull may
tnke the pick of tho new commissions.
This may not bo the conceded intent,
but It Is too likely to be the probable
Hut oven worst, is the house com
mittee's elimination or the provision
requiring future vacancies in the stnsf
corps to be filled by detail from tho
line, such appointees to serve no longer
than four years on tho staff without
an Interval of service in tho line, At
present tho staff departments are of
ficered by men who remain until re
tired on age. They recelvo good pay,
have every social and political advan
tage, uro subject to.no orders or dis
cipline, barring gross offence, save
those of their particular bureau chief,
and in this utmosphero and snug con
dition of independence It takes an ex
traordinary man to keep an unswelled
head nnd a mind and heart in sympa
thy with the needs of the line, Tho
simple truth Is that tho staff nt pres
ent Is autocratic, overbearing, Inef
ficient In the senso of not possessing
tho flexibility and Intimacy of sympa
thy with the llneirequlred to produce
tho best results, und as unmllltury,
judged by the stundiirds In vogue In
most other armies, as It Is, In spirit
and method, undemocratic and un
American. Jt Is n fixed force, set apart
from all other branches of tho service;
an exclusive casie, And when trouble
comes and extraordinary demands fall
upon It, as was tho caso early In the
war with Spain, It has uu membetshlp
In reserve, is necessarily Inudequutu
and the whole nillltnry establishment
has to suffer from, confusion und
blundering until a green auxiliary
force, suddenly recruited from civil Hfo
generally by rule of pull, tan bu sea
soned and taught what to do. '
Yet every effort niutlo to undo this
expensive anomaly, which cost the
country thousands of lives two years
ngo, has uniformly boon defeated by
reason of tho grip which staff Influences
have Upon a few congressmen promi
nent us leaders of army legislation.
The truth of every word said here
stnmls unchallenged and iinehnllenge
able, nnd It Is widely recognized! yet
the evil perpetuates Itself to the In
finite harm of tho service. Heorctnry
Hoot has n reputation for bull dog grit
which Inspires the hope that ho, will
not let up until he forces this or a sub
sequent congress to do the nrmy Jus
tice. Tho resolution on the part of con
gress to Investigate hazing at West
Point can accomplish but little In tho
case which hits recently shocked the
country, ns the principal witness In
the, affair Is beyond giving testimony.
If it can result In protecting future
sublects, however, It will Juptlfy Itself.
The Guthrie Primary Bill.
A COMMITTEE of the Pitts
burg chamber of commerce,'
headed by ex-Mayor Guthrie,
has approved the draft of a
new primary election law which, In
conjunction with tho Keator ballot law
to group all names of candidates al
phabetically under the offices to be
voted for, will bo. among the main
reform measures to be pressed upon
the attention of the Incoming legisla
ture. The essential features of the Guthrie
bill are the making ot all nominations
by a direct vote nnd the holding of
primaries by all political parties on
the same day. The bill Axes all prim
ary elections for city, ward, borough
and township offices on the first Tues
day after the first Monday of January,
and for all other offices on the first
Tuesday ot June. Tho elections shall
be held 'between the hours ot 1 and 7
p. in. at the regular polling places,
und shall be conducted by the regular
election officers. The compensation or
judges Is placed at $3 each, Inspectors
at $2.i0 each and clerks Vi each. No
primary election shull be held in the
caso of city, ward, borough and town
ship offices unless on a call signed by
twenty qualified electors, or authorized
by the executive committee of u. po
litical party, and published not more
than thirty nor less than twenty days
before the date. The courts ate given
power to excuse for cause any election
officer from attendance and appoint a
person to fill his place. In case of fail
ure of any officer to attend ten minutes
after the time fixed for holding the
election the vacancy shall be filled
by the qualified voters present. The
courts shall appoint watchers on the
petition of any candidate. The quali
fication of a voter at a primary elec
tion of any party may be prescribed
by the rules of such party. In the
absence of such rules a citizen entitled
to vote at the approaching election,
and who at the preceding state or
national convention voted for the can
didate of the party, shall be entitled
The election shall be 'by secret bal
lot and the official ballots arc to bo
supplied by the county commissioners.
The ballots are to be endorsed with
tho names of the candidates, with a
square opposite the name of each, In
which the voter may designate his
choice by a cross. The voter is re
quired to declare the party for which
he desires to vote. Exceptions to an
election or return have to be filed
within five days after the election.
Whenever under the rules of a do
liticai party a convention of delegates
is to be held, the delegates thereto
shall be elected at the primary election
immediatly preceding the convention.
Section three specifies seventeen acts
which would be unlawful under the
bill. These include the use of money
or coercion to influence voters, the im
personation of nn election officer and
the disclosure of how any person voted,
or to vote more than once. A penalty
of a fine not exeeedlns $1,000 or two
and one-half years' Imprisonment for
violation of the law Is Included. It is
the duty of the presiding judge to
certify to the court of quarter sessions
the facts whenever any of these acts
are committed, and the duty of the
court and the district attorney to take
proper steps for the arrest and prose
cution of the guilty person. Provision
Is made for the hearing and disposing
of exceptions to returns filed and the
courts are directed how to act. The
decision of the county courts Is final,
except when tho disqualification affects
a candidate for state, executive or Ju
dicial office, when an appeal may be
taken to the court of common pleas of
Dauphin county. Nominations to all
vacancies caused by death or with
drawal shall be made by a committee
of the party duly authorized under
the rules of the party.
There bus been so much earnest
talk on all sides In favor of ballot re
form that It will be Interesting to
notice how the fiiithrlo proposition,
which oir Its face seems reasonable
und well considered, will be received
The report that Emperor William of
Oerinauy has made study ot the Eng

fying news to ambitious Americans us
plrlng to diplomatic careers but defici

who speak Itusslun, M.OOO.OOO who speak
French, .10,000,000 who speak Spanish
and 35,000,000 who speak Italian. Cir
cumstances not necessary to mention

ions tho number who uso SpunUh and
while French and German are both
valuable languages for an American to
